Ring of Fire Card Drinking Game

The card drinking game Ring of Fire is similar to Kings Cup where cards are picked each round that have rules attached to them. Except people contribute to a death cup as the game progresses.

Equipment for Ring of Fire ✅

  • Pint glass
  • A standard card deck with 52 cards
  • 1 Solo cup
  • Beer, hard liquor or other alcoholic drinks
  • At least 2 players, but we recommend a group of 4-8 people

Ring of Fire Rules and Setup

Place an empty solo cup in the middle of the table. Spread a deck of cards out to make a ring of face down cards around the empty cup.

Ring of Fire Gameplay

To start the Ring of Fire drinking game, each player starts by taking a turn to pick a card (You’ll notice this game is similar to Kings Cup).

Once a card is drawn it is left face up on the table.

The game lasts until the last king is drawn from the card circle.

If the circle of cards is broken in the process of taking a card, then the drawing player has to down his/her drink.

Ring of Fire Card Rules 🤓

Here are the card rules for Ring of Fire: 👇

Ring of Fire Card Ace Illustration Ace

Waterfall: To perform a waterfall, each player starts drinking their beverage at the same time as the person to their left. No player can stop drinking until the player before them stops.


You: Pick a player to drink 1 sip.


Me: If you pick this card, you have to drink 1 sip!


Whores: All girls must drink.


Thumb master: The person with this card may place their thumb on the table at any time during the game and the last person to do so has to drink.


Dicks: All guys must drink.


Heaven: The person with this card may raise their hand at any time during the game and the last person to do so has to drink.


Mate: Pick a player. This player is now your drinking mate. Everytime you have to drink, this person also takes a drink.


Rhyme: You say a word, and the person to your right has to say a word that rhymes. This continues around the table until someone cannot think of a word or take too long to come up with a rhyme. This person must drink. The same word may not be used twice.


Categories: You come up with a category of things, and the person to your right must come up with something that falls within that category. This goes on around the table until someone can’t come up with anything. This person must drink.


Rule: You can come up with a new rule for the game or remove one. If a player breaks the rules, he must drink!

An example for this would be: Everyone needs to chug their drinks with the left hand. Or everyone needs to moan while drinking. You get the idea.


Question master: You are now the question master. If you ask a player a question and they answer, they have to drink. If they answer the question with “Fuck you question master” then you have to drink.


King: Add as much of your drink to the dirty pint.

Whoever draws the last king has to down the dirty pint, the pint must be filled to the top with donations from other players in the game!
