Mex Drinking Game Rules

Whoever goes first gets to roll the dice. They then decide to either keep their score or roll again. They get a maximum amount of 3 rerolls. But however many they use becomes maximum allowed for each player in that round. So if the starting player decides to stop after only 1 reroll than every other player can only have a max of 1 reroll.


  • 2-1 : This is a Mex. The highest score possible.
  • Doubles: All doubles are higher than all non-doubles with the exception of Mex. 6-6 is higher than 5-5 which is higher than 4-4 etc…
  • Non Doubles: These are lower than all doubles or Mex rolls. Their value is the high dice and then the low dice. So if someone rolls a three and a six, their score is 63. The higher the better.
  • 3-1: This is a bunk roll. Any player who rolls this must automatically drink half a cup since this is the lowest roll.

At the end of each round the player with the lowest total must drink half a cup. If it’s a tie the tied players play another quick round among each other to determine who will drink the half cup. If anyone rolls a mex in a round another half-cup is added to the pot. So if a round contains 2 Mexs then it’s worth 1 and a half cups to the loser.


The Mex drinking game is fun and similar to a lot of other games like Mexicali and the German game Schock.
