What makes 1-2-Switch the ideal drinking game? Maybe it's the huge selection of games to choose from, or maybe it's how simple the concept of some of them are, making them perfect for taking shots or putting on those beer goggles with buddies.
If you're playing a drinking game, chances are you want something that can entertain a mature crowd. With Jackbox Party Pack, you get a handful of games that can be as clean or dirty as you like thanks to it relying on user-inputted content. Plus, if you have a big crowd they can join in on their smartphones and tablets, so you don't even need to buy more controllers!
Ever heard the term Beerio Kart? It's a popular one amongst people who have been using Mario Kart as a drinking vessel since its initial release in 1992, and now it can be applied to its great great great grandchild, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe! There are plenty of different drinking games you can play with Mario Kart.
Ain't no party like a Mario party and a Mario party don't stop! With dozens of mini-games at your disposal, you can have loads of fun with up to 3 other people at a time. Don't get too crazy now!
Nintendo's online service could be the perfect place to go for drinking games. There are many classic NES games that support up to two playing, and more can join in if you pass the controller around. Try and challenge your friends to beat a level in a certain amount of time or by getting all the rings without dying, making them take a shot when they fail!
Needless to say, you should always exercise caution and moderation when drinking. The point of these drinking games is to have fun, and no one will have fun if you're vomiting all over the place or can barely stand! Know your limits and quit while you're ahead, lest you want your more sober opponents to have the last laugh.
