Super Mario Bros. 2 Drinking Game

Super Mario 2 Drinking Game -

The second installment of the Super Mario franchise is one of the oddest ones. That’s mostly because it’s a re-skin of an entirely different game because the original Super Mario 2, now called “lost levels”, was deemed too hard for Americans. Regardless of how it came to be, Super Mario 2 is a great game which calls for a great drinking game.

Our Super Mario Bros. 2 drinking game mostly revolves around getting players to drink when getting hit and depending on what they pull from the tall grass. Which will make players think twice if pulling vegetables from the grass is really worth it.


What You’ll Need

You’ll need a copy of Super Mario Bros. 2 for the NES. Then each player should get a drink or two ready to begin the game.
