The Pyramid Drinking Card game is perfect for a crowd of about 6 players who are looking to play something a little more interactive than most card drinking games. With all the drinks that are given out in this game it’s a great way to force players to decide who they want to see drunk.
What You’ll Need To Play
A full deck of cards (jokers removed), some drinks and some pals.
Lay out cards face down so that they form a pyramid shape, with 5 cards on the bottom row and only one on the top row.. This should be 15 cards all together. Deal out the rest of the cards as evenly as possible to each player.
How To Play The Pyramid Drinking Game
Play starts by flipping the bottom left card of the pyramid. Anyone who has the matching number in their hand can assign the card to another player and they must drink. Alternatively a player can bluff and pretend he has the card when he does not. If a player calls the bluff he either drinks double if he was wrong, or the giver instead drinks the number he was about to give if he was lying.
The dealer then flips over the next card in the row and players begin to give out drinks again. Once the bottom row is all flipped play continues to the next row which is now worth 1 more drink per card than the last row. This continues all the way to the final top card which is worth 6 drinks.
The Pyramid drinking game works best with around 5 or 6 players. Too many and and players don’t have enough cards and may not end up playing any of them. This game is great to get a party started and is really easy to set up and understand.
