Spot the Lie

No purchases required for this simple couple's drinking game: All you need to do is pour your favorite bevvies and then take turns coming up with three statements about yourself—two true, one false. Your partner must be able to identify the lie. If they don't, then it's time for a sip. (Up the ante by requiring a shot if they get two or three incorrect guesses in a row!)

Strip or Drink Dice Game

Keen on playing a "dirty" drinking game? This simple option will definitely dial the heat to full blast. All you need is a pair of dice (you can also use a phone app that "rolls dice") and some conviction. Take turns rolling the dice. If it's an odd number, then you drink.
