5 Fun Drinking Games That Will Strengthen Your FriendshipWritten by David MasifonPosted on 06 28, 2017
The International Friendship Day is just a couple of days away and friends all over the world would be looking forward to mark their superb companionship.
It is no news that friends love to hangout together, go on adventures, have great fun and most importantly, share a drink together.
Well, if you and your friends are looking forward to a house party with foods and drinks, then there are multitude of games you can indulge in just to make your bond stronger.
These games are a sure way to not just enjoy your favourite drink, but also prove how much you know your friends, as well deepen the bond you guys already share.
Below are five fun drinking games you can play with your friends:
Preferred Drink: Gin
“Most Likely” is one sure game to prove how much you and your friends know each other. Get your friends to sit in a circle and set a bottle of gin at the centre, while everyone holds a tot glass. Go ahead to ask a “most likely” question, like “Who would be most likely to ask Olamide for a dance at a nightclub?” or “Who would be most likely to not turn up for a planned outing?”
On the count of three, you and your friends point to whoever is believed to most likely to do whatever act was mentioned. You have to take a tot for every person who’s pointing at you. That means that if five people think you’d ask Olamide for a dance, you have to take five tots from the gin at the centre.
Never Have I Ever
Preferred Drink: Red or White Wine
This one great game to know your friends’ secrets! The game demands that you share something that you have never done before and the people who have will take a sip of their drink.
The amazing thing about Never Have I Ever is that you get to enjoy the amazing floral notes of your wine, while having amazing fun knowing what your friends have been up to behind your back.
For example, when you say, “Never have I ever been drunk,” all your friends who have been drunk will have a drink. The underlining fun here is to make your friends reveal their awkward stories so be careful about what you say.
I’m Going to the Bar
Preferred Drink: Rum
Ever played the game I’m Going on a Picnic? This is the adult version of it…with drinks. The game tastes the IQ of you and your friends, as well as your knowledge of alcoholic beverages.
You begin by saying, “I’m going to the bar and I need to get a vodka” (or any other alcoholic beverage). After that, the next friend in line has to repeat the drink that you said, but add another drink to the list as well.
For example, after a few rounds in: “I’m going to the bar and I need to get a vodka, a tequila shot, a gin and tonic, and a long island.” The rounds go on and on until one friend messes up; whoever does first takes a shot.
Preferred Drink: Whiskey
This is not the usual concentration game played with cards, this is played with drinks. The game helps to test the general knowledge of your friends and their ability to pay attention.
Everyone sits in a circle and the first friend goes “Concentration! Concentration! Names of alcoholic drinks! Names of alcoholic drinks! Absolut Vodka!” The friend next to him then goes, “Jack Daniel’s Whiskey”, the next person calls out another name until someone fails or repeats a name that has been called. Whoever fails, drinks a shot of whiskey.
You can also play with names of cars, names of streets, names of footballers and so on.
Preferred Drink: Sparkling Wine
Everyone knows that one-liner that gets a friend rolling on the floor with laughter. This game gives you the chance to test your friend’s resolve to keep a straight face even after reading that hilarious one-line joke.
You and your friends write funny memory or inappropriate sentences on small pieces of paper – you know the kinds that are tough for your friends to read while keeping a straight face. Each of your friends to picks up a chit of paper and tries to keep a straight face. The one who giggles or reacts drinks.
Enjoy your friendship day party, but remember to drink responsibly.
