Quarters: Show Off Your Coin-Bouncing Skills

Quarters is a timeless two person drinking game, requiring nothing more than a coin, a cup, and some impressive aim.

Alternating turns, try to bounce a quarter off the table and into the cup. If you succeed, your opponent drinks; if you miss, then you have to pour some beer into the cup. If the cup fills up so much and spills a drop, then whoever made that last pour to spill it has to drink the entire cup!

High or Low: Test Your Luck with a Deck of Cards

In High or Low, one person draws a card and the other player has to guess if the next card will be higher or lower in value. Guess incorrectly and you’ll be taking a drink – guess right and your partner will be the one sipping.

Split a deck of cards evenly between the two players and simultaneously reveal one card each. The player with the lower card value takes a drink. If you both draw cards of equal value, you’ll both be taking a sip.

Power Hour: Music and Shots Combined

Power Hour! You can either make a playlist of 60 songs or find one already set to go on Youtube. Every time a new song starts, both players must take a sip of their drink.

This means a drink every minute for an entire hour! If you are using a shot glass of beer for each minute then it averages about to 7 cans of beer per person for the hour. Power hours on youtube range from any type of music to one minute movie clips. Our favorite is Totally Rad 90’s Power Hour!

Kings: Use Your Cards to Rule the Game

Kings is a classic card-based drinking game. Shuffle a standard deck of cards and spread them face down around a large cup. Each card represents a rule which must be followed.

For example, drawing a ‘king’ card could mean that the player has to pour their drink into the central cup. If you draw the fourth king, you must drink the entire central cup. Check our full guide to Kings Cup here!
