In a time when technology dictates pretty much everything we do, we all need some time to put our mobile phones down, gather around with family and friends, and play a game where we can laugh, be competitive and have some good, old fun.
Now, if you’re one of those with a knack for a unique and fun game that will surely get everyone involved and well, drunk, you should try playing Fuck the Dealer Drinking Game.
As the name suggests, the goal of the players in this game is to get the dealer drunk by guessing the value of the top card on the top of the deck. Each player has two attempts at guessing the value correctly and he can be given a third chance depending on the rules set before the game.
All you need to play Fuck the Dealer Drinking Game is a deck of playing cards, your alcoholic drink of choice and players ready to have some good fun and well, get drunk.
But what exactly are the rules of the game and what are the things that you need to remember to keep it fun and entertaining?
1. How the dealer is selected
To start the game, everyone sits around a table in a circle with a drink of their choice in hand. Each player is dealt with a face down card from the deck and whoever chooses the card with the lowest value will be designated as the first dealer. The dealer will collect all the cards and shuffle it again.
2. How the game is played
Before the game begins, make sure to remind everyone that this is all just for good fun and that no one should drink more than they can tolerate. The dealer will then ask the player to his left to guess the value of the card from the top of the deck. It could be hearts, spades, clubs or diamonds.
If he guesses it right, the dealer should drink two shots and the game will move to the next player who will do as the first player did. But if he guessed the value incorrectly, he will need to drink two shots and must now guess the value of the next card on the deck.
If he guesses it correctly this time, his turn will end and the dealer must drink three shots. If he makes the wrong guess, however, he will need to drink four shots.
3. How the player is given a third try
To make the game more exciting, the player who makes two wrong guesses is given one last chance to redeem himself. This time, he will be asked to guess whether the next card on the deck will have a higher or lower value than the last card drawn by the dealer. If he guesses it correctly on this try, the dealer must drink four shots and move on to the next player.
But if the player still makes the wrong guess, he will need to drink five shots. The game will move on to the next players in a clockwise motion until the deck is finished.
If the dealer beats three players in a row, the player to his left will be designated as the new dealer. There are also instances when the player who made three wrong guesses will be named the new dealer after taking the five shots.
4. How the game rules can be modified
If you already tried playing Fuck the Dealer Drinking Game and you want to spice things up, you can modify some of the rules to fit your needs. For instance, you don’t have to wait for three players to make the same mistakes in a row.
If two players don’t guess the correct card value, you can already designate the last player to make three wrong guesses as the new dealer. This is especially useful if there are only a few players in the game.
On the other hand, a new deck of cards can be used for every new dealer or if the dealer hasn’t changed before all the cards on the deck are used.
5. How to stay safe during the game
Although Fuck the Dealer Drinking Game is only for fun and entertainment, it still involves alcohol. This is why it’s very important to make sure that everyone playing the game is drinking alcohol responsibly.
For instance, if a player can’t tolerate drinking five shots at once, then no one should force him to do so. Always remember to drink responsibly to avoid consequences that can easily turn a fun game into a disaster.
Now that you know the basics of playing Fuck the Dealer Drinking Game, you can already introduce it to your family and friends on your next gathering.
