iPuke is one of the coolest drinking game apps ever! In its essence, it is just a simple game app with cards that tell players what to do. But the craziest requests of this app will break the ice even in the hearts of the shyest ones among your friends. And there are always those who resist relaxing once in a while.
How does it work? You open the app and see a bunch of decks of cards to choose from. All of them except one are not free, so you need to choose the one that is free – in case you can afford to spend some money, you can add extra decks.
Then you need to choose the number of players – this number is not limited, so you can play with as many people as you want to. After that, the ball starts to roll and each player is offered two options – to drink a certain amount of alcohol or to do something crazy.
Whoever gains the highest score wins. The rules are the same for everyone and need to be respected – only in this case, the game can get really hot! The app is really dope. Get it now and enjoy it!

Heads Up! is actually not a drinking game, but it can be in certain circumstances. In any case, it is an awesome game to play with friends which will make every party more interesting and amusing.
The rules are simple. There are several decks of cards with words written on them. You should launch one of the decks and put a phone on your forehead.
People who are with you need to explain the written word. If the word is understood, you should turn over the phone to see another word. Our explanation is probably too vague, so it is better to download the app and let Ellen (Yes, the one from TheEllenShow!) explain the concept.
You can make your own rules that force the person who is not so good at guessing words to drink a shot. Or you can make the person who sucks at explaining drink a shot! Either way, the app is there for you, waiting to be downloaded.
Drink and Tell
Drink and Tell is a relatively new drinking game app that has already gained lots of fans. The rules are once again simple. There are several categories of questions – six of them are free (love, sex, life & death, personality, ethics, user-generated) and seven come as in-app purchases.
From our point of you, those six categories are absolutely enough for making your party spicy and fun but if you’re going to have more than one party with the same people, you might need some fresh questions.
After choosing a category, a player reads a question and its answer options out loud, taps one of the options secretly, and listens to other people’s guesses about this choice. Having heard everyone out, the player taps the screen to reveal the answer. Everyone who has made a wrong guess… yeah, right! – has got to drink.
By the way, there is an awesome official trailer of the app – just click on drinkandtellapp.com to watch it.
Drink and Tell is absolutely adorable! It definitely beats all the other apps when it comes to the content of questions. In this app, they are both straightforward and in-depth. One more advantage which is quite obvious – the app is nice to look at and easy to use. Taking everything into account, this one is 100% worth your attention!
Seven is one more game with cards and crazy dares. There are three levels of complexity (only one is available free of charge) and lots of cool cards with mad requests.
Unlike the first app on this list, this one does not count scores of every player – it is just a bunch of cards connected either with drinking or doing crazy stuff. There are two additional decks to buy, but the standard one is enough for having fun.
What we liked about this app is that there is an opportunity to change languages – there are at least three options to choose from, including Russian and Czech. Some cards have pretty simple requests on them, others may challenge you. This one is definitely not for doughfaces!
For more diversity, regular multiplayer apps should be included in this list. But seriously, we all know that playing simple video games together with friends is mega fun, so can you imagine playing a game like this with your drunk friends? Astro Party is a multiplayer game, and if all of your friends will get it, you will be able to play it simultaneously.
The game is executed in the old 8-but style. You can play up to 4 players in one team. It has three game modes with two-button control options so that you can easily control and play this game on your smartphone. One of the best features of the game is that you are constantly playing at a new location and that what makes this game really exciting and fun.
Drinking Game by EvilBit
Drinking Game by EvilBit for Android is a little bit more complicated than the ones above. The game itself is quite easy but there are so many twists and unusual challenges that we strongly recommend you play it at the beginning of the party.
After you open the app and start a new game, you should set a number of players and choose their looks. Every player can do this for oneself.
The cornerstone of gameplay is that each player should guess what card is going to be the next – the one that is higher than the given one, the one that is lower than the given one or the one like the given one. Depending on whether the guess is true or not, the app gives a challenge to a player or to everyone.
These challenges, as we have mentioned earlier, can be quite tricky. For example, one of them is some kind of a debate between two players – the winner is the one who is the first to tap the screen. Almost every challenge is about taking a number of sips, usually two or three.
The app has all those modern looks, which makes it very appealing. The idea itself is unique and interesting. We are sure this one can bring you lots of positive emotions and experiences!
Picolo drinking game
Picolo is a nice little drinking game app for both Android and iOS. The coolest thing about this one is its simplicity. After you start a new game, you need to enter the names of players (three or more) and read what is written on the blue screen.
Believe us, there are lots of hilarious challenges that you will find amusing. If you don’t like them though or want to make the game even more thrilling, you can add your own challenges.
Picolo is an excellent choice for minimalists – no complicated details, no sounds, just the challenges. The only mode that is available for everyone is called ‘Getting Started’. The other four modes like ‘Getting Crazy’ or ‘Caliente’ require a charge. All in all, this game is super dope. Get it now, try it, and have a good time with it!
Never Have I Ever
This app is just like Drinking Game by EvilBit, only it is for the iOS devices. Never Have I Ever have five different games to choose from, so you can decide which one suits your taste best. Of course, five is not seventeen, but, to be honest, we think that seventeen is a little bit too much.
The design of this app, as you can see, is festive and bright, which will certainly affect everyone’s mood in the right way! So, if you happen to own an Apple product, check out this drinking game app. We hope, it will able to make you a little bit happier.

Kings is one more drinking game app for Android that deals with a deck of cards. Every card contains a small game or a challenge. A player should tap a deck and do whatever is written there. As time passes, everyone starts to remember the cards’ meanings and the game becomes more energetic and fun.
We think that a deck of cards is not so essential in this type of games, because we all use our phones and can do quite alright without additional tools. What I mean is that it would be more rational to write challenges right on the screen without making them associated with cards.
On the other hand, there is something old-fashioned and great about it – who knows, maybe this method is more convenient for some people.
Anyway, the game is full of interesting requests. If you want to add your own ones, you can simply do it by changing the meanings of some cards. So, one more game with changeable rules. Download it now and enjoy it!
Drink-O-Tron is one more drinking game with cards. This one, unlike the previous one, shows challenges or meanings of cards right away, which we find more convenient. Moreover, the cards are stylish and beautiful, which adds up to the overall pleasure of the playing experience.
There are several decks of cards to choose from, but only two of them are available free of charge (at least on Android). The content of the available decks is far from complex, which is probably the drawback of this app. There are of course a couple of small games written on the cards but mostly the cards just tell you to drink a certain amount of alcohol.
For example, one says ‘the girls drink’, the other ‘the boys drink’, and so on. Sometimes people are looking for something this simple, so who knows… But if you are not one of such people, you may consider buying additional decks or downloading another drinking game app.
To sum up, the advantages of Drink-O-Tron are stylish cards (they are like little pieces of art) and clear challenges that are written right on them. The disadvantage is that the challenges are not as exciting as they could be. But this is a matter of taste, so try this one as well and have fun while using it!
Drink or Doom
Drink or Doom is a hilarious drinking game app. In this one you don’t have to deal with cards – the app offers you alternative gameplay, in which players roll the dice and move their characters to the next challenge.
The challenges are from the category ‘drink or dare’, for example, ‘let a player number 1 change your social network’s status / drink 2’ or ‘let a player number 2 send a couple of messages using your phone / drink 3’.
The game is accompanied by jolly music and sounds, the graphics are high-quality and, additionally, there is a big variety of funny characters, so everyone can choose a unique one.
One more cool feature of this app is that it counts how many shots have been taken by each player. Drink or Doom is definitely worth a try, so go ahead – download it now and get wasted!
Circle of Death
Circle of Death is one more drinking game app with cards. This one is pretty simple – you just tap the deck and the app shows you what to do. The requests are the standard ones – some of them are simple like ‘the girls drink’, others are in the form of games: ‘rhymes’, ‘questions’, and so on – all the usual stuff.
The advantage of this one is simplicity. There are two languages to choose from – English and Spanish. By the way, if you don’t speak Spanish and really want to, visit our article about the best apps to learn Spanish.
Yes, this is an advertisement and a drinking game is not the best reason to start learning a new language (but who knows?!).
The rules can be changed, but there are not a lot of them, which is probably an advantage since it can be quite boring to learn the rules of new games all the time.
The only drawback of Circle of Death is ads on the bottom of the screen – we have found them quite irritating. Apart from that, the game is excellent. If you are looking for something clear and simple, this is one of the best choices!
Drunk potato is an amazing free drinking game apps developed by Prodigal Creative LLC for Android and iOS users. This is that type of tricky question game or “try to answer that when you’re drunk”. If you want to play this drinking game in a circle of close friends this is a really good option to go for.
There are some really fun and stupid questions, like “name the 3 most popular names for a stripper”, “name 3 things wrong with your life”, or “explain Harry Potter as fast as you can”. If you have fun and talkative friends imagine playing this game with them when everyone is drinking!
Overall, it is a really simple app. You can google the same types of question at the same time, however, having an app like this is a much more convenient and fast option.
The King’s Cup
The King’s Cup is one more app with cards and challenges. The rules are the usual: players, one after another, choose a card and do whatever is written on it. The challenges are not very specific. The only peculiarity of this app is that a player chooses a card from a circle of cards, which creates a nice impression.
Once again we deal with the app that has customizable rules so if you don’t like any default rules, you can change them by entering your own ones. Every card is assigned to a certain rule or challenge. There are two other customizable features and they are a card color and a card selection (tap or drag).
So, as we can see, this app has got the full package of what is needed in such basic drinking game apps. The only disadvantage is the ads that take up the bottom of the screen. Apart from that, one more great option!
