The Internet Drinking Game

The Internet Drinking game is a simple game that only requires a device with an internet connection and a way to browse the internet. The premise is pretty simple. Players take turns adding a letter and then searching to see if that domain exists, if it does they are in luck. Otherwise they gotta drink. There’s also some bonus rules for players who land on certain types of websites.

What You’ll Need

A computer, tablet, phone or any other kind of online device. Then every player should have a drink ready.

How to Play the Internet Drinking Game

Open up an internet browser and select the URL at the top. Delete everything there.

Players take turns adding another letter to the URL and seeing if that website exists. The first player starts by searching a 2 letter domain of their choice.

If the domain exists, great. Next player’s turn. However, if it doesn’t, the player who’s turn it was must drink equal to the number of letters in the name.

Searching...

For example the first player searches “www.Re.com”, that domain exists. It’s a real estate website.

The next player searches “www.red.com”, that domain exists. It’s a security camera website.

the next player searches “www.reds.com”, that domain exists. Go Reds!

The next player searches “www.redso.com”. Nice, a scam website.

The next player searches “www.redson.com”. A parked domain, phew! (take a drink anyway)

The next player searches “www.redsony.com”. Wah wah, that’s not a real website. This player must drink for 7 seconds. 1 second for each letter in the domain “redsony”.

Additional Rules

  • If you land on a parked domain (a website that basically just tells you to buy it), take a sip.
  • If you land on a porn website, assign someone else to finish their drink.
  • If you land on a website that’s not English, take two sips.
  • If the site you land on brings up a pop-up (even if it’s blocked) take a sip for each pop up.
  • If you get redirected, drink.

 

The Internet Drinking game is great and all you need is a phone or computer. It can be played with any number of players but works best with smaller groups of around 2 to 8.
