Tons of People Can Play
You can play the Irish Poker drinking game with as many people as you want and all you need is a deck of cards and a playing surface.
Each player get four cards laid facedown in a row in front of them. The person to the left of the dealer starts by guessing if their left most card is red or black. If they guess right, they hand out two drinks (make 2 other players take a drink); if they guess wrong, they take two drinks themselves. This continues all the way around the table.
For the second card in line, you guess if it is higher or lower than your previous card. If you get the same card that you already have, you automatically drink. If you guess right, you hand out four; if you’re wrong, you drink four. And around the table again.
For the third card, you guess in between or outside of the two cards you already have. If you get one of your cards again, you drink if you said outside, but you’re safe if you guess in between. This time, the losers drink six and the winners hand out six.
For the last of the four cards, you must guess what suit your card is. If you are wrong, you drink eight and if you’re right, you hand out eight.
TPQ Comment: Obviously, this Irish Poker drinking game involves ALOT of drinking but is perfect for a party because so many people can play.
