How can I make drinking alone fun?

Answered by Edward Huber

Making drinking alone fun can be a great way to unwind and enjoy some time to yourself. While it may seem like drinking games are meant for social gatherings, there are actually several games you can play on your own that can still be entertaining. Here are six drinking games that you can enjoy all by yourself:

1. Solo Power Hour: This classic drinking game involves taking a shot of beer every minute for an hour. Set a timer and make sure you have enough beer to last the full hour. It can be challenging to keep up the pace, but it’s a fun way to test your drinking skills and see how much you can handle.

2. Quarters for One: This game usually requires multiple players, but you can adapt it to play solo. Grab a quarter and try to bounce it off a table or wall into a cup or shot glass. Each successful shot means you take a drink. You can keep track of your score and try to beat your own record.

3. One Person Categories: This game is a solo version of the popular drinking game “Categories.” Choose a category like movies, countries, or animals, and try to name as many items as you can in that category within a time limit. For each item you can’t think of, take a sip of your drink. Challenge yourself to think quickly and expand your knowledge in different categories.

4. Edward 40 Hand: This game is a bit more challenging and involves taping two 40-ounce bottles of beer to your hands. The goal is to finish both bottles without removing the tape. While this game can be played with friends, it can also be a fun challenge to take on by yourself. Just make sure you have a plan for when nature calls!

5. Beer Pong Against the Wall: Beer pong is usually played with teams, but you can play a solo version against a wall. Set up cups in a triangle shape and try to throw ping pong balls into the cups. Each successful shot means you take a drink. Keep track of your score and see how many cups you can make in a row.

6. Never Have I Ever With Facebook: This game is a twist on the classic party game “Never Have I Ever.” Instead of playing with friends, you can use Facebook as your playing partner. Scroll through your Facebook feed and take a drink every time you come across a post or status update that applies to you. It can be a fun way to reflect on your own experiences and memories.

Remember to always drink responsibly and know your limits. If you’re playing these games alone, it’s important to stay in control and make sure you’re still having a safe and enjoyable time. Cheers!
