How to play “Bullshit” Drinking Game

Playing the “Bullshit” drinking game is simple, but it requires a lot of quick thinking and lying skills. But before you get started, you’ll need a couple of things. Let’s go over what you’ll need to play.

Equipment for “Bullshit”

  • A 52-card deck (if you’re more than six people, you’ll need two card decks)
  • Plenty of alcohol (we recommend beer)
  • 3-10 players

“Bullshit” Set up and Gameplay

Now that you have everything ready, it’s time to get started. Follow these steps to play the “Bullshit” drinking game:

1. Deal out all the cards:

Choose a person to be the dealer. The dealer shuffles the deck and deals out all the cards, one at a time, clockwise around the table until there are no cards left.

2. The person to the left of the dealer starts:

The person to the dealer’s left starts the game by playing one or more cards from their hand face down on the table. The first player must begin with aces. When the player puts down one or more cards, they must announce what it is, for example, in this case, “two aces”.

3. The next player must play a higher card:

The next player must then play one (or more) card from their hand that is higher than the previous ones.

For example: If the first player plays two aces, the second player could play one, two, or two threes. If the second player plays a two, the third player could play two threes.

This way, the cards played get progressively higher as the game continues. When reaching the end of the available cards, e.g., a King played after a Queen, an Ace can be played to “loop back around” to a Two.

4. If you cannot play a higher card, you have to bluff:

If you cannot play any card from your hand higher than the previous one, you must lie about the cards in your hand and play any card(s) from your hand. The other players must then decide whether or not they believe you.

For example: If the player before you played two queens, and you don’t have any cards higher than queens in your hand, you might say “two kings” and play any two cards from your hand.

5. If someone challenges you, you have to show them your cards:

If another player thinks you are lying about the cards in your hand at any point during the game, they can challenge you. That means you have to show them your cards.

6. If they are correct, you have two choices:

If you’ve been caught lying, you have two options. You pick up all the cards from the table, add them to your hand, or drink.

7. If they are wrong, the challenger has two choices:

They can either pick up all the cards from the table and add them to their hand or drink. 🍻

8. The winner is the first player to get rid of all their cards:

The game continues until one player has no cards left in their hand. That player is the winner of the “Bullshit” card drinking game!

Sometimes, bluffing isn’t enough to convince others that you’re not lying. That’s when a good poker face comes in handy. Keep a straight face and maintain eye contact to throw off your opponents.
