How To Play
Step 1: Select virtual streaming platform and invite your friends: Zoom, Google Hangouts, Skype, FaceTime, Join.me, (and others) all work well.
Step 2: The host starts a game, entering their name and clicking 'Start a New Game' on our homepage. The host should then share the 'game code' or game URL (click Copy Game URL) with all other players. This can be done via your mobile phone, tablet or computer. A laptop or computer should be used to share the full sized game board with the other users on the virtual meeting platform. Only one user needs to do this.
Step 3: All players can then join the game by using the 'game code' and inserting their player name on our homepage or directly on the game page with the provided URL by the host.
Step 4: Once all players have joined the game, you are ready to go! The host should then share their screen on your streaming platform of choice so other players can follow along the full sized game board. All other players can follow along on their mobile phone, tablet or computer as well.
Final Step: Click 'start game', and have fun! The host has additional options to Pause Game, Skip a Turn, End Game, or Remove a Player. Each player has options to the right of their name (either on mouse over or click) to copy that player's URL in case they get disconnected or want to change devices and an option for the host to remove the player.
Additional Game Rules:
Most drinking related boxes are self-explanatory, below are some that you may need brushing up on.
Greek Life: Greek Life: If a player lands on this space, anyone in a Fraternity or Sorority drinks.
Knighthood: If a player lands on this space, he or she will pick other player and give them a nickname. From that moment on, that player should be referred to by the nickname they were given. If someone refers to this player as their real name for the rest of the game, they should be held accountable and drink.
F**k the Dealer: If a player lands on this space, the host of the game will need to drink.
Truth or Dare: If a player lands on this space, the player who went before them, gets to ask them 'truth or dare' and then make up a question or dare them to do something.
Make a Rule: If a player lands on this space, they will make up a rule that the rest of the players need to follow throughout the remainder of the game. Example: "from now on, whenever someone says my name they have to drink"
Battle Royale: If a player lands on this space, they should square up with another player of their choice and do a virtual game of rock, paper scissors. It’s not supposed to be easy, people. It’s going to get messy. Loser drinks.
Compliment: If a player lands on this space they should give a compliment to another player, or drink.
This or That: If a player lands on this space they will be prompted with two options from our database. They should choose what they would pick and keep it a secret for now. Let the other players guess what answer you’ve chosen and then reveal the answer. Anyone who answered incorrectly should drink.
Confession: If a player lands on 'Confession', a prompt will pop up with a question. Answer it with honesty.
Jester: If a player lands on this space, their job is to make the group laugh. They can tell a joke or do something silly. Anyone who laughs should drink. If nobody laughs, the joke is on you - you drink.
Silence: If a player lands on silence, they need to go on mute until their next roll.
Slice N’ Dice: If a player lands on this space they should drink for the amount of seconds they rolled.
Pick a Drinking Mate: If a player lands on this space, they will get to choose another player to drink everytime you drink for the remainder of the game. Choose wisely.
Waterfall: If a player lands on 'Waterfall', everyone will need to start drinking at the same time. Players can only stop drinking once the person directly in front of them on the gameboard stops drinking. The last person on the game board should be the last person drinking.
Never Have I Ever: If a player lands on 'Never Have I Ever', they will say something they've never done. Any player that has done this thing will drink!
Bust A Ryhme: If a player lands on 'Bust a Rhyme' they will be prompted with a word. They will start by saying a word that rhymes with that word, and then the next player to go will have to say another word that rhymes until someone can't come up with another rhyming word. That person drinks.
Read Your Last Text Message: If a player lands on this space, they will need to go into their text messages and read their last one. Don't say who it's from and have people guess for bonus fun.
Categories: If a player lands on 'Categories' they will be prompted with a category from our database. They will start by saying something that is in that category (i.e ice cream flavors would be vanilla), and then the next player to go will have to say another thing that's within that category until someone can't come up with another. That person drinks.
Creeper Alert: If a player lands on this space, they need to go into their social media platform of choice - Facebook or Instagram and like/comment on the first post in their feed and tell the group (regardless of who it is). If they refuse, they should drink.
Hi Mom: If a player lands on this space they should go into their texts and send an unwarranted selfie to the last person they’ve texted. Make sure to wave ‘hi’ and let them know you’re playing Drink With Friends. If you refuse, drink.
Jail: If a player lands on the jail space, they lose a turn. We'll make sure they are skipped.
Safe: When a player lands in a 'safe' zone, they are safe from drinking until their next roll. This means no other players can pick them to drink, and they can opt out of any group drinking (i.e virtual cheers).
Bang Marry Kill: If a player lands on this space, they'll be prompted with three randomly selected people and have to choose who they'd bang, marry or kill. This should be interesting.
Retail Therapy: If a player lands on this space, they should goto their Amazon account (or similar preferred online shopping outlet) and tell the group what their last order was.
Camera Roll: If a player lands on this space, they should open up photos on their phone and show the group the last photo they have. If it’s an interesting one, give the back story.
Community Vote: If a player lands on this space, everyone should vote on who drinks. You can utilize the chat function on your Zoom (or other) platform to take a vote. Player with most amount of votes, drinks.
Virtual Selfie: When a player lands on this space, you can either take a photo of the group on your phone, or take a screen shot of the game. We just want you to remember how much fun you had!
2 Lies and a Truth: If a player lands on this space, they will need to make up two lies and tell one truth. Each player should then guess the truth. Once everyone has guessed the original player will reveal the truth, and anyone who guessed wrong has to drink.
