Kings Drinking Game

Short about the Drinking Game

Kings or Circle of death is a widespread drinking game that can be played with 2 to 8 people. More than that will probably result in cheating and a lousy game overview. The rules of this game can be adapted as you like. There are a hundred different versions.


  • A deck of cards
  • A glass or a bottle
  • Something to drink

Drinking Rules:

Put all the cards in a circle around on a table. Someone starts and picks the first card from the circle, then you have to do the assignment corresponding to the card. As said these assignments can be randomly chosen. If someone touches more than one card or breaks the circle, they must automatically drink for that.

Possible assignments per card:

Ace“Waterfall”The Player who drew the Ace begins to chug or sip, and so then does everybody else. When the person who picked up the card stops drinking the person to their right can stop drinking. When that person stops drinking the person to their right can stop drinking. This goes to the end of the circle.
2“You”The Player who drew this card selects someone who then must drink.
3“Me”The Player who drew this card must drink.
4“Whores”Ladies and women drink.
5“Mission”The Player who drew this card gets an assignment from the other players.
6“Dicks”Gentlemen or men drink.
7“Categories”The player who drew the 10 picks a category such as “car brands” or “famous painters” the players then go around in the circle saying items from that category, if someone doesn’t have any more answers they must drink. The rest continues until someone wins.
8“Pick a Mate”Pick a person to drink with you for the rest of the game.
9“Bust a Rhyme”The player who drew the 9 says a phrase, then the players go around in the circle saying phrases that rhyme with the original. No phrase may be said twice, the first player who can not come up with a phrase or says a phrase that doesn’t rhyme must drink.
10“Everyone”Everyone has to drink.
Jack“Pee card”Only when you have a Jack can you use it to go pee. Otherwise, you have to chug a beer.
Queen“Question Queen”Whoever draws this card becomes the “Question Queen”. Whenever they ask you a question, you must answer their question with another question, or else not answer them at all. You must take one drink if you answer a question with a statement. This person is the “Question Queen” until someone else draws a queen.
King“Rulemaster”This person makes a rule when he draws the King, and everyone else must follow this rule for the remainder of the game. For example no more names, no pointing, lick the table before you drink, …
Joker“Wild Card”House rule.
