Never have I ever… 🤭
The drinking game “Never have I ever” definitely belongs at the top of the list. It’s perfect if you want to get to know each other (like on the first date), but it’s also perfect to play with your best buddy and learn one or two dirty secrets of each other. Either way it’s a great game to get to level up your night.
One round of Never have I ever… could go dirty extremely quick! 😏
So if you find yourself in a kind of awkward and boring first date, try to break the ice with a game of Never have I ever…
Rules for: Never have I ever
For two players usually the older one goes first and begins with the statement: “Never have I ever…“
Never have I ever had sex on the first date.
Never have I ever - Online Version
Here you can play “Never have I ever” online in your browser:
👉 Never have I ever - Online
Now in this example, if one of you two already had sex on the first date, drink. To overcome an embarrassing silence, simply hold the drinking glass close at hand.
If none of you can agree to this statement, nobody has to drink. Then it continues clockwise, starting with “Never have I ever…”
Info: This rule is slightly different if you play it with only two people. If you’re in a big round, you only make statements that you already have done.
Bonus: 800+ Never have I ever - Statements

UNO as a Drinking Game
As one of ther most popular card games in the world, there is, of course, also a drinking game variation of UNO for 2 people.
UNO Drinking Game Rules
As with the normal version of UNO, the rules are simple: shuffle the cards and you’re ready to go. The youngest player always starts. Then continue clockwise. Here are the rules that make the UNO a drinking:
You have to drink when…
- You draw the same color as the player in front of you.
- You draw the same number as the player in front of you.
- If you draw a suspension card, you may choose a player to drink.
- With a return card the direction is changed just like with the normal Uno.
- In a draw-two card, the player who next draws a card drinks. (If your Draw Two card is the same color as the previous card, you must drink as well.)
- For a plus-four-card everybody has to drink.
It is played until all cards have been drawn once. Various additional rules listed below can be executed. These increase the intensity of the drinking game.
Additional Rules for UNO as a Drinking Game
We have written down additional rules for UNO that make the drinking game even more intense: 👉 Additional Rules for UNO
Blow the Cards
All you need is a deck of playing cards and alcohol.
Setup of Blow the Cards
At the start of the game you place a glass filled with any alcohol in the middle of the table. Then all the cards are put together in a stack and placed on the glass. For Blow the Cards it does not matter which cards you use and how many. But we recommend waterproof playing cards because the cards are very close to the alcohol.
Gameplay of Blow the Cards
The youngest of you starts the drinking game. Then one of you now tries to blow at least one card from the deck of cards. Any number of cards may be blown from the bottle. The goal is, of course, to “remove” the cards so that the next player clears all cards and must drink.
Jenga as a Drinking Game
Of course, as you know, Jenga is perfect for two. With a few extra rules, the Wooden Tower game becomes one of the best drinking games of all time. The Jenga rules remain the same, but individual stones are labeled. If you drag one of these labeled stones, you must perform the action associated with the label. The stones can be labeled arbitrarily. Ideas for potential labels:
In one go
Drink your drink on in one go.
The smallest player has to drink three times and then may appoint someone who also has to drink three times.
Drink a tequilla shot.
Name three bands from the eighties or drink three times.
Name three bands from the seventies or drink three times.
The ship goes down, everyone has to drink his drink.

“I’m Going on a Picnic…”
This is a memory game, which can be super hard if you already had one or two drinks.
Rules for “I’m Going on a Picnic…”
Go through the alphabet naming things you’d bring on a picnic, adding one more item per turn.
“I’m Going on a Picnic…” Example
- Person A: I’m going on a picnic and I’m bringing Apples.
- Person B: I’m going on a picnic and I’m bringing Apples and Bananas.
- Person A: I’m going on a picnic and I’m bringing Apples, Bananas, and Carrots.
- And so on…
Drink every time someone makes a mistake. This game gets more hilarious both the drunker and the farther down the alphabet you get. Very likely you’ll get sidetracked by arguments about why anyone would need to bring a xylophone to a picnic.
Caps Drinking Game
This one can be played with either two or four people.
Rules for Caps
Each player sits facing the other at opposite ends of a table. Next to each player is a cup full of beer. Each player takes turns trying to throw a bottle cap into the other player’s cup. If one makes a hit, then the player that was scored on has to chug the cup of beer. What else are you going to do with those old bottle caps?
Quarters Drinking Game
For the drinking game Quarters you only need quarters and cups.
Quarters Rules and Gameplay:
One player tries to bounce a quarter off the table into a cup or shot glass. If the shooter makes it, the other player must drink and the shooter gets another turn. If the shooter misses, it’s the other players turn to shoot. This is probably the best drinking game for 2 people because it’s a skill game, and you definitely want to practice one-on-one before playing it at a party.
More Drinking Games for 2 People
Death Pong Drinking Game:
Beer pong with beer but one cup has liquor in it. The other team doesn’t know where you put the shot.
Tic-Tac-Toe Drinking Game:
Play tic-tac-toe with shots instead of x’s and o’s.
True American Drinking Game:
Set up tables, chairs, and cushions in a room so players can move around to escape from the “molten lava” on the floor. At the center is a castle made of a bottle of alcohol and many beers. As players traverse the game area, they remove beers and drink them. Once all of the beers have been removed, the first player to reach the bottle of alcohol, finish their beer, and take a swig from the bottle, wins the game.
Conan the Barbarian Drinking Game:
Play Conan the Barbarian movie on DVD with the commentary turned on. Any time Arnold says the words, “right”, “exactly”, or a combination of the two, take a drink.
Red/Black Drinking Game:
You’ll need a deck of cards and beer. The dealer flips a card and other person guesses whether it’s red or black. If they’re right, nobody drinks. If they’re wrong, the guesser drinks. Three correct in a row you can make a rule, such as can’t say drink, drank, or drunk. If a rule is broken, the rule breaker must drink. Once the deck is completely gone through, reshuffle and start over.
Of course, there are many more drinking games that are suitable for two people. Search our list with all drinking games, maybe you like one or the other game better than one of this list.
