Indian Poker Drinking Game Rules
Everyone can see the value of other players cards except their own, and must decide whether or not they will participate in the round or fold, based on the limited knowledge they can acquire from those around them. The end goal is to have the highest card of the round, which would be an Ace.
The player to the left of the dealer decides whether or not to fold first, and this continues in a circular fashion until everyone has made their decision. Once everyone’s locked into their decisions, the cards are placed on the table.
- The player with the highest card wins the round.
- Any player that folded and had a lower card than the winner drinks 2
- Any player that folded with a higher card than the winner drinks their card value
- Anyone who didn’t fold and lost drinks the difference between their card and the winner’s card.
This simple game is a great way to wrap up a night of drinking, especially if you’re buzzed from playing a game of Kings or Asshole.
