1. Flip Cup

When it comes to the Flip Cup game, you have to pour any drink of your choice into plastic cups and then place them on opposite ends of the table.

You have to make sure that the amount of liquor in each glass is the same. Once this is established, each player then drinks the alcohol, puts the glass back on the table and then flips the glass upside down.

To determine the winner, the first person who gets the correct measure of liquor in minimum attempts will win the game. 

You can repeat this by increasing the number of shots each player must take before they flip the glass. This is a good drinking game for a nice couple date. 

2. Battle Shots

To play battle shots,  you can either build the board yourself or purchase it. 

The procedure is as follows; 

Get a piece of paper and draw a 7×7 grid on it. 

Mark the rows numerically and the columns alphabetically.( This will enable you to have an alphanumeric name for each box. For example, the top left box is A1)

Once this is ready, you can now place your “boats” on the grid. It’s important to note that three Xs are for the battleship,  two are for the destroyer and one for the submarine. 

It is your duty to ensure that your partner doesn’t know where the Xs are. Always remember that one X represents one shot. 

Each of you will then take turns in guessing where your partner’s battle shots are. You will take a shot once your partner hits an X.   The first person to sink all their opponent’s boats is the winner. The loser must then drink all the remaining shots. 

3 . Russian Roulette

To play this game, you have to take a lot of shot glasses. Fill one with alcohol and the remaining glasses with water. 

The next step is to shuffle all the glasses to the point where you will be able to determine which is water and which is alcohol. Both of you have to start drinking it in turns. 

The person who gets the alcohol has to perform a dare. You can opt to increase the number of glasses with alcohol. 

It’s important to note that if the drink is gin or any other colourless alcoholic I spirit, you should go in for dark shot glasses.
