Back to Back – A One-on-One Party Battle Game

Back to Back is a party game app where at least two players battle it out as they test their knowledge about each other. It’s a great way to break the ice and have a laugh or two along the way.

This game works with as few as two players, or as many as you want as long as the player’s don’t mind waiting for their turn. Additionally this game comes with fun drinking rules to keep the liquid courage flowing.

How does Back to Back work?

The rules of this game are quite simple to understand. Two players at a time sit with their backs to eachother (so that they can’t see eachother) and a drink in their hands. While a third player reads aloud the question on the app.

Each round two people will go back to back (they can’t see each others movements) with drinks in their hand. Questions will then be asked to the players, for example “Who made out with more people?” or “Who’s most likely to become a millionaire?”. All the players have to do is drink if they think they are the answer (or simply raise their hand if they’re not using the drinking rules). If both or none drink they lose a life. If only one drinks, which means they agree, then they keep going. Whoever is reading the questions tells the players if they lost a life or agreed.

What We Thought of Back to Back

One of the great things about this app is the simplicity. If you’re looking for a party game or a drinking game, you always want to be sure it’s easy to understand (because really, who wants to spend 20 minutes explaining complicated rules to a table of drunkards.) Luckily the Back to Back party app is as simple as reading a question aloud and watching your friends learn some shocking truths about each other.

The drinking rules can be a little slow if you’re playing with a lot of players who are waiting for their turn at the hot-seat. If that’s the case we suggest adding in some extra drinking rules like placing drinking-bets on who you think will answer the next question correctly.

Overall this app is a lot of fun with some really unique questions tossed in there. It’s a quick download and a lot of fun, very accessible with multiple languages and a smooth interface, it’s a great way to break the ice and get the drinks flowing before a party. It would also make a great game for a date-night where you’re trying to learn a thing or two about the person you’re with.
