35 Drinking Games For Couples

1. The Quiz Game

The Quiz Game is a classic couple game that will help you know your partner better. All you need is a set of spicy questions and some shot glasses! Here are some questions that you can begin with:

Where did we first meet?

What was I wearing when we met first?

When did we first kiss each other?

When are we going on a vacation?

Your partner has to take a shot for every wrong answer. The same applies to you if you don’t know the right answers.

2. Spin The Bottle

Of course, this is not your typical spin the bottle! When playing this game with your partner, play it with a little twist! The game’s concept remains the same, but rather than having the bottle point at a person, have it point to an object – chocolate, whipped cream, or maybe some outfit. When the bottle points at one of these objects, perform something romantic and dramatic with it to entertain your partner. You can play this game with alternate turns, and whoever fails to perform will have to take a shot!

You can add other objects like pen, paper, chili peppers, honey, blindfold, fortune, or cookies to make the game fun and romantic.

3. Drunken Artists

Find out how many shots it takes to bring out the inner Picasso from within your partner. This game’s rules are simple – draw and make your partner guess what you have in mind. It’s easy, it’s fun, it’s Pictionary with some rum!

To make this drinking game for two even more interesting, you can draw with your fingertips on your partner’s palm or body. Start by drawing anything simple, such as a heart or a ring, write your partner’s name, or just the initials. For every wrong answer, pour some drink into your partner’s glass. You can also set the timeframe within which one has to get the answer right – let’s say 20 seconds – and keep pouring until you get the right answer!

4. Russian Roulette

Add some zest to your date night with this classic game of Russian roulette. If you have a set of shot glasses handy, fill two of them up with gin or vodka and the rest with water. Shuffle them as much as you can, and then divide the glasses equally among you and your partner. Now, drink in turns, and whoever gets the alcohol first will have to perform a dare.

You can suggest to your partner some acts like dancing to a song, having two shots one after another, or serenading you with a romantic song. For the second round, fill more glasses with drinks and make the game night unforgettable.

5. Two Truths And One Lie

Two Truths And One Lie is an exciting couple drinking game that requires revealing facts about yourself to your partner. This game works great for those in new relationships as you get to know a lot about your partner, and vice versa.

To play the game:

  1. Start by telling three things about yourself out of which two are true, and one is a lie.
  2. Let your partner guess what’s real and what’s not.
  3. For every wrong answer, serve your partner a drink. For every right answer, take a shot yourself.

6. Never Have I Ever

Never Have I Ever is another game that will help you get closer to your partner. Start the game by framing a sentence such as “never have I ever kissed a girl/boy.” If the answer is yes, your partner has to say so by taking a shot. If not, no one gets to drink!

This alcohol game reveals a lot about your partner and lets you know what they expect from the relationship.

7. The Question-Answer Game

The Question-Answer Game is suitable for couples who have come a long way in their relationships. This is one of the best relationship games when you want to learn about your partner. Start by asking some questions to your partner. These questions can be related to anything, even personal life. You can dig as deep as you want but ensure that your partner is comfortable. You can ask questions, such as:

When shall we move in together?

When shall we get engaged?

When can we meet each other’s families?

In case you or your partner choose not to answer a question, you have to take a shot instead.

8. Jenga

Who said Jenga is for kids? Well, it can get quite interesting when played with your partner while drinking. This version of Jenga includes drawing blocks alternatively. For each block drawn, you can ask your partner to perform something hot or seductive. Some of the tasks to give to your partner include a strip dance, lap dance, and so on. If your partner fails or refuses to perform the act, they will have to have a drink.

Zoe Mae Davies, a blogger, found that involving alcohol in playing Jenga makes it a fun party game to play with all her friends. The rules are super easy to follow, and you only need the Jenga blocks and a marker to note the challenges on them, and a few bottles of your choice of alcohol. She’s also provided a few examples for the kind of challenges that can be put up, such as “Battle of the Sexes: Everyone of the opposite gender must take 1 drink,” or “Beauty Swap: Switch places with who you think is the most beautiful person playing the game (i).” This fun game can easily perk up any party and keep it going full steam!

You can even include Jenga blocks with body parts mentioned on them. Then you can each take turns performing something funny or romantic with that body part. For each turn they refuse, ask them to take two shots instead of one!

9. Snakes And Ladder

Snakes and Ladder is a romantic couple’s drinking game whose rules are no different from the regular game. Only, this one involves a lot of romance and a few glasses of vodka. Proceed normally, and every time you climb a ladder, you have to take a shot. The twist comes every time you slide down the ladder because, this time, you have to remove your clothes. What better way to add some zing to a date night?

10. Flip, Sip, Or Strip

This exciting drinking game for couples can turn quite hot with every guess that your partner makes. Start by tossing a coin and asking your partner to guess its side. If your partner guesses it wrong for the first time, they will have to take one shot. But if they guess it wrong the second time, they have to remove their clothes.

11. Straight Face

Straight Face can be challenging and needs a tad bit of effort to play. But it can be fun and wild without a doubt! To prepare for this game, make a bowl full of paper slips with adult jokes. Now, one of you has to pick a chit and read what’s written on it.

The motive of the game is to keep your face straight while reading. You can’t show any expression or laugh. Whoever bursts into laughter first loses the round and has to chug in a shot.

12. Find The Spot

Fulfill your kissing fantasies with this couple drinking game called Find The Spot. The game is simple and romantic. All you need to do is keep guessing right! Start the game by asking your partner any question like, “Where do I like to get kissed the most?” Then, give them three options to guess from. For every right answer, you will have to take one shot each, and for every wrong answer, your partner will take one shot.

13. Truth Or Dare

Truth Or Dare is one of the most common date night ideas, and it is an all-time favorite game that can be played on any occasion, especially during a romantic and adventurous couples’ drinking party. The rules of this game are similar to the regular Truth Or Dare – but with some twists. Every time your partner chooses the truth, tell them to answer the question honestly. In case your partner does not answer honestly, they will have to gulp in a shot. Similarly, for every dare, if the person fails to perform the task, they will have to take a shot.

14. Most Likely To

Most Likely To is a questioning game that involves asking some questions like:

“Who is most likely to not take a shower for a week?”

“Who is most likely to cheat?”

“Who is most likely to hide something?”

Such games are not just fun but also reveal a lot about your partner’s choices, preferences, and lifestyle.

To play this game, keep some questions ready in a bowl full of chits. Take one chit out at a time and read the question loudly. Now, both you and your partner have to point at the person who is most likely to do something. You can point at yourself too. Every time you and your partner make a different choice, both of you will have to take a shot.

15. You Laugh, You Lose

You Laugh, You Lose is a funny couple’s shot game or drinking game that involves downloading plenty of funny videos. The game is usually played after having 1-2 shots to multiply the fun. Play one of the downloaded funny videos, and whoever fails to control their laughter first has to grab a shot. Continue playing the game until you run out of videos.

However, remember, anyone who is downloading the videos is not supposed to see them in advance before playing the game.

16. Charade

Charade is a fun game to be played anytime – it doesn’t matter whether you play it while drinking or not. But if you plan to play this game with your partner, it is better to have drinks along with it. Prepare for the game in advance by keeping some chits with some words or sentences written on it. Place all these chits in a bowl after folding them properly.

To play the game, you and your partner will take alternate turns. Anyone who picks the chit will have to act out the word to their partner without uttering a single word. If your partner guesses the acted-out word wrong, they have to take a shot.

17. Eye Contact

This classic game requires no introduction at all! Eye contact is a simple game that can be played by anyone, anytime. But, if you have a couples’ night on your mind, it’s better to make it more romantic and engaging with some tequila. To play this game, you need to stare into each other’s eyes without blinking. Whoever blinks first will take a shot.

18. Simon Says

A fun game where each partner pretends to be Simon and tells the other person what to do. Don’t be afraid to get a little brave too. For instance, you can say, “Simons says, chug your entire drink or remove your shirt” to instantly spice things up.

19. Beer Pong With A Dare

Who doesn’t love beer pong? But the fun doubles when you add a dare to the equation. Arrange the beer glasses in the usual triangle and place pieces of paper with the dares under the cups. Now the person not only has to drink the beer but also do the dare.

20. Emoji Acting

A fun way to try something out of your comfort zone. The rules are simple. Show your partner an emoji that you want them to act out and then take turns doing this. If they are able to recreate a similar expression to the given emoji, then you have to take a penalty shot. If their attempt fails, then they have to take a shot.

21. Drunk Uno

A classic game that becomes more exciting when you add drinks and play it with your partner. Follow the same game rules but with a twist. If anyone gets a skip card, they have to take a shot. Similarly, a + 2 card equals two shots, while a + 4 card equals 4 shots. A different and adventurous way to amp up your regular date night.
22. DIY Pizza Box Game

Create your own drinking game with an empty pizza box and let your creativity go wild. Throw a dice on the box, draw a circle where the dice lands, and write a dare inside it. Now ask your partner to throw the dice and see if the dice lands on your circle. If it does, perform the mentioned dare. If not, then they can draw their own circle and write a fresh dare on it.

23. Guess The Word

Give this simple game a romantic twist by thinking of a few sensual or romantic words. Trace one word on your partner’s back or palm. If they guess wrong, then they must drink and if they win, then you have to drink. Try using words like ‘love’ and start by tracing the letter L, then O, then V, and E and finally allow your partner to guess the word.

24. Go Fish

Turn this normal game into a fun drinking/ sensual game. During fishing time when you ask your partner for a card and they don’t seem to have it, take a sip from your drink and vice versa. When one person completes a set of 4 cards, the other person shall take off a piece of clothing and also finish their drink.

25. Fast Facts (Couple Version)

Similar to a quiz but one that is guaranteed to add some much-needed fun to your date night. The game requires each person to say facts about the other person within 5 to 7 seconds. Take turns shouting out the fact, but if anyone takes longer than the given time, they have to take a shot or remove a piece of clothing. The game is not only an easy way to spice things up but can also help you understand your partner better!

26. Forbidden Word

Ask your partner to tell a personal story or a moment that they loved. But declare the words they are bound to use when narrating the story as forbidden words. It could be a story of a small getaway or a date that became memorable for some reason. For instance, if your partner is talking about a special beach trip that you both took, ban words like ‘ocean’ or ‘swimming’.

27. Body Shots

This game is a perfect way to heat things up without going the usual way. Make a list of body parts, number them, and make another list mentioning how to take the shot. Now, roll a pair of dice. The number present on the first dice will indicate the body part, whereas the second dice will help decide how to take the shot.

Do make sure clear boundaries are set before starting the game and consider flexible options to avoid discomfort of the participants. Make a space where consent is respected.

28. Kings Cup

This game involves placing all the cards on the table, keeping them face down, and drawing out one card. Follow the rule assigned to that card and the game is finished when the fourth King card is drawn. The person who does not follow the given rule has to face a penalty or drink 2 shots.

29. Spin And Kiss

The rules are super simple but will be nothing less than a challenge when done. It only gets better as you and your partner get drunk. Both individuals have to spin at the same time for 10 to 15 seconds. The longer you spin, the more dizzy you will get. Now, try to kiss each other after you are done spinning. If you both fail to do so, then both of you have to take a shot!

30. Guess The Movie/ TV Series

Show your partner a scene from a movie or tv series and let them guess its name. The individual who fails to answer the question has to take off a piece of clothing. Set a timer to up the ante but ensure not to be too lenient. Each person can get 5 to 10 seconds to guess the movie or series name.

31. Taste And Tell

An ideal game for couples who love food! Blindfold your partner and make them eat a dish. Be it a slice of pizza or whipped cream, they have to guess the food item correctly. Take turns feeding each other and guessing the food. The person who fails to guess correctly has to take two shots.

32. Tongue Twisters

Search for some tongue twisters on the internet to start off with the game. Take a shot before beginning but try the game when you both are drunk to make it more fun and challenging. The penalty for not completing the line is taking another shot or completing a sensual dare.

For instance, two person drinking games like Russian roulette, drunken artists, and straight face let you explore your drinking capacity while engaging in various enjoyable activities. You even need to invest a lot of time and effort in preparing for the game night as something as simple as snakes and ladders, Jenga, or spin the bottle can make for great drunken couple games. Do be mindful and ensure your partner, and other participants in case of a group, are comfortable enough to express their boundaries or withhold consent, and everyone is respectful of it.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are some rules for drinking games?

There are no hard and fast general rules for drinking games except maintaining some decorum and being respectful of each other. Aside from that, you can customize your own rules to make the games fun. For instance, give penalty drinks for using swear words or forbid other words like ‘drink,’ ‘beer,’ and ‘game.’ Since these are words you would commonly use while playing drinking games, there might be many penalty shots, which will amplify the fun. Although, be careful that situations do not get out of hand.

How do you play a paranoia drinking game?

One player must whisper a question to the player sitting on their right side. The answer should be someone who is also playing the game. For instance, for the question “Who is the cutest in this group?” the player must point to someone (another player) they consider the answer. If the pointed player is curious about the question, they must sip a drink.

 What are some drinking games without cards?

Some drinking games that do not require cards may include “The Name Game,” “Mister Freeze,” and “Medusa.”
