St. Patrick's Day Drink If Game
Instantly download and print off this St. Patrick's Day Drink If Game ($3) to play with your friends this St. Paddy's Day. The game has four rounds that require players to drink if they're guilty of what the round says. For example: drink if you're single (*takes a big slurp*).
St. Patrick's Day Bingo
Bingo, but make it St. Patrick's Day style. St. Patrick's Day Bingo ($3) comes with 50 different cards to choose from, so you'll never have to worry about how many rounds are played. To make it a drinking game, make a rule that everyone has to drink when they can't put a chip on their board. I guarantee you'll get a few players tipsy.
Drink If . . . St. Patrick's Day Game
Yes, OK, you're right — there is already a "drink if" game in here. However, if you want another version, this Drink If . . . St. Patrick's Day Game ($10) includes 24 mug-shaped cards that you can hold up to the screen so everyone can read them. It's up to you which style of the game you prefer, but it's only fair to have a few options!
St. Patrick's Day Feud
The St. Patrick's Day Feud ($5) is always a good time to play with family or friends. The digital download comes with 10 Family Feud-style St. Patrick's Day questions, three Fast Money round questions, an instruction sheet, and an answer sheet. The losing team has to chug the rest of their beer!
St. Patrick Says
Who needs Simon Says when you have St. Patrick Says? The two games have the same rules, except for this one, if no one does as you say, they have to take a sip of their drink — so make the questions hard!
Ensure that everyone on the call has a few shots ready and dice within arm's reach. The way roulette works is that the participants have to roll their dice at the same time and whoever rolls the lowest number drinks. The only tricky part is making sure everyone's being truthful over the call — no cheaters allowed!
This game keeps it simple and ensures that everyone is on the same level. At the top of the hour, everyone has to drink. Whether it's shots or beer that they're drinking is your choice, but regardless this will lead to a good drunk among all players.
St. Patrick's Day Jeopardy
Yes, this St. Patrick's Day Jeopardy ($8, originally $9) game is compatible with Zoom. Simply share your screen like you would a PowerPoint presentation and get right to it! The game comes with an answer key and will be emailed to you as soon as it's purchased.
