Bullshit Drinking Game

Smells like Bullshit

The Bullshit drinking game is a version of Pyramid with an added bluffing element. In this game cards are flipped in the central pyramid and if their card comes up they can pass out the matching card to a player to make them drink. The fun part about this game is that you can lie and say you have a card when you really don’t and the opponent has to judge whether he thinks you’re lying or not.

What You’ll Need

For this game all you need is a deck of cards, some drinks, and at least 3 players.

Setting It Up

Someone should be designated as the dealer. They shuffle the deck and then create a pyramid of face down cards in the center of the table where all players can see it. This is done with a row of 1, a row of 2, a row of 3, a row of 4 and finally a row of 5. These rows represent drink multipliers, with the bottom row (the biggest one) being worth 1 and the top row (the smallest) being worth 5.

Then the dealer deals out all the remaining cards to the players as evenly as possible. Players should keep these cards hidden from the other players.

Bullshit Drinking Game Rules

Starting at the bottom row and going upwards the dealer takes turns flipping the cards in the pyramid.

Whenever a card is flipped a player can play that card to make an opponent drink equal to whatever the row is worth.

Players can also “bluff” and say they have a card when they don’t. But if a player ever thinks someone is bluffing they can call “Bullshit!”. If they were correct in their call then the player who was lying drinks instead. If they were incorrect however they now have to drink double.

The game continues until every card in the pyramid is flipped over.


The Bullshit drinking game is great for large crowds and the bluffing aspect really adds some strategy.
