HAPLO Rules

Not going to lie, I’ve never been able to figure out where the name of the HAPLO drinking game came from. That being said it plays out very similar to other games like Kings or Circle of Death. What you do here is shuffle the deck and draw cards in turn. Each card does something different which usually involves some drinking. This game works with anywhere from 2-10 players.

What You’ll Need

A full deck of cards and some drinks.

HAPLO Drinking Game Rules

Players take turn in a clockwise order drawing cards and then doing actions based on what they drew.

  • Ace – Chug race, otherwise known as Waterfall. The player who drew this starts to chug, then the player to their left starts to chug, and so on until everyone is chugging. Nobody can stop until the player before them stops.
  • 2 – RPS. Each player plays rock, paper, scissors at the same time. Everyone counts how many other people picked the same shape and drink that many times.
  • 3 – Red/Black. If the card is red all guys drink. If it’s black all girls drink.
  • 4 – Fuck You Asshole. At the count of 3 everyone points to someone and says “Fuck You Asshole.” whoever got the most people point to them drinks. If it’s a tie both drink.
  • 5 – Rule Card. Whoever drew this gets to make up a rule. Anyone who breaks it drinks.
  • 6 – Spin the Bottle. Spin an empty bottle and whoever it points to finishes their drink.
  • 7 – Word Game. The player who draws this chooses a word. The next player has to say a word that relates to it, and so on. First one to mess up or stutter drinks.
  • 8 – Give 8. Give out 8 drinks divided as you want.
  • 9 – Bathroom Card. Only a player who draws this card may go to the bathroom.
  • 10 – Give 10. Give out 10 drinks divided as you want.
  • Jack – 21. At the count of 3 every player puts out 1-10 fingers. Count from yourself clockwise and whoever has the 21st finger drinks.
  • Queen – Mate. Pick another player, whenever they drink so do you.
  • King – Beer Bitch. You’re not in charge of fetching everyone’s beers.

The HAPLO drinking game plays out like Kings on steroids. So it is quite a lot of drinking. Please drink responsibly and don’t do anything I wouldn’t do.
