Recently we got a chance to try out a fun new drinking game called Drinky Darts by DrinkyGames. What it is is basically a beer coozie that fits around any beer can, with a fuzzy dart board attached. Each coozie also comes with a few fabric tipped darts that stick nicely to the can. A great way to keep your beers cold and inject some fun into the evening at the same time.
Each set comes with 2 coozies and 4 darts and a small rule booklet explaining how to play.
How to Play Drinky Darts
Like any good drinking game, Drinky Darts is simple to understand. First each player should put a beer coozie on their can and then whoever is starting grabs the 4 darts.
The goal of the game is to reach 12 points before your opponent by landing your darts on the target on their can. You can also play where each point means a drink for your opponent.
Players take turns throwing their darts at the other players can, making sure the target is facing forward and the cans are about 8 ft apart. (you can adjust this distance if you want an easier or harder game).
On a players turn they throw 4 darts and score points based on where they landed (a dart must stick and stay stuck to score).
Red = 3 points, White = 2 points, Blue = 1 point. First to 12 points wins the game!
Drinky Darts Review
This one is pretty straight forward. It’s a great way to keep your beers cold and a fun mini-game to make sure everyone is having a good time. The coozies fit well around the can and the darts stick nicely as long as you follow the instructions and don’t attach the coozies too tight.
At first we played a few rounds of the game, earning points and dishing out some drinks. Which is always a great time. We used to play a version of this with real darts and honestly Drinky Darts is much less messy.
As the night progressed we kept the coozies on our active drinks and made a rule that if you ever find a dart attached to your can you must drink, so it became a game of trying to hide your drinks and stockpile darts throughout the night.
You really can’t go wrong with this. Even when you’re done playing it’s a comfortable way to keep your beers cool. We suggest grabbing a couple sets so that everyone can play along at the same time. If you’re looking to add a bit of drunken shenanigans to your next hangout, Drinky Darts is a great choice.
