The Screw Your Neighbor drinking game is very similar to a drinking version of the classic card game Chase the Ace. This game works best with at least 4 players because it’s a bit too brief with any less than that. The goal of the game is to wind up with the highest card possible and hopefully screw over the next player and get them to do some drinking.
What You’ll Need
For this game you’ll need a deck of cards and some drinks for each player.
How to Play Screw Your Neighbor
To start a dealer shuffles the deck and then deals one card to each player face down. Players can look at their own cards. Play starts with the player to the left of the dealer and then goes clockwise.
On a players turn they can either opt to keep their card, or swap cards with the next player clockwise. That player cannot refuse to swap. Keep in mind the goal here is to not have the lowest card so if you think you got the lowest card trade with your left neighbor!
Kings: If a player is dealt a king they can flip it up as soon as they get it. Nobody is allowed to swap and take this card.
On the final turn of a round when it’s the dealers turn, they cannot swap with the next player clockwise. Instead they can swap with the top card of the deck.
After everyone has played then everyone flips their cards. Whoever got the lowest card overall has to finish their drink!
Screw Your Neighbor is a great casual drinking game that doesn’t usually involve a whole lot of drinking. Either way players should exercise caution and drink responsibly. Over consumption of alcohol can be a very serious thing.
