How to play Avalanche
Avalanche is pretty easy to play. You throw a die and follow the rule of the number that comes up. Any number of people can play the game, so it’s perfect for large and small groups.
What do you need for Avalanche?
You don’t need much to play Avalanche. You can play it any time and any place as long as you have:
- A six-sided die
- Alcoholic drinks
- Drinking glasses or cups (one for every player and one game glass)
- A table (or another flat surface)
Before starting the game, every player fills their cup with an alcoholic drink. Then, put one empty drinking cup in the middle of the table - this will be the “game glass”. The players sit around the table.
One person starts by filling the “game glass” with either a small or large amount of their drink. Then they roll the die. The number they roll corresponds to a rule they must follow (e.g., chugging the game class). After completing the rule, it’s the next player’s turn. Play passes clockwise around the table.
Tip: Remember, it’s always a possibility that you have to chug that game glass during the game. So keep that in mind when it’s your turn to fill the game glass with alcohol. So, if you want to play it safe, only pour a small amount in there.
The game continues until there is only one player left who hasn’t been eliminated. That player is the winner!
Avalanche Drinking Game Rules
After you’ve rolled the die, you must follow the rule corresponding to the number you rolled. Here are the avalanche drinking game rules:
🎲 Number 1
The player does nothing; they pass the glass and the die to the next player.
🎲 Number 2
The player adds more alcohol to the game glass and passes it to the next player, along with the die.
🎲 Number 3
The player must drink up the entire game glass. Meanwhile, the play continues with another game glass. If the player has not finished the game glass by the time it’s their turn again, they lose the game and are out.
🎲 Number 4
The player must take off one item of clothing. After that, they fill the game glass with alcohol and pass it to the next player.
🎲 Number 5
The player can make anyone of their choosing drink the game glass, and the game continues with a new game glass. If the player has not finished the game glass by the time it’s their turn, they lose the game and are out.
🎲 Number 6
The player has to roll the die again! If it’s another 6, they have to fill up the game glass and pass it along. They can choose any player to drink it if it’s already full. If they get another number, they follow the rule for that number.
