I use waterproof playing cards for Circle of Death. They last a lot longer!

#2. Then, you’ll need a large cup. For example, a fun 2L Boot Mug or a Super Large Stein Mug Cup

This is the best “Circle of Death” cup for people on a budget.

#3. Last of all, make sure you have enough disposable cups for everyone.

Each player should have a full cup of their drinking of choice. Also, there should be plenty more where that came from!

#1. First, make sure everyone has a full cup of their drink of choice. Then, have everyone put a little bit of their drink into the Death Cup. Place the Death Cup in the center of the table.

This is just 2 people pouring into the Death Cup. Now imagine 12…

#2. Next, spread the deck of cards in a circle around the death cup, kind of like a fan.

Set Up Vide Demo #1

It’s important to know that set up may vary slightly from game to game. Here’s just one guy’s way of setting up:

Finally, I’m cutting to the chase.
THIS is How To Play Circle Of Death Drinking Game With Rules

#1. Once you’ve set everything up, the player to the left of the dealer draws the first card. (You’ll move clockwise for the rest of the game.)

#2. At each person’s turn, they draw a card and act out the specific rule. 

#3. After that, the next player picks up a card and the cycle continues.

There are two ways to end the Circle of Death Drinking Game: One is that you just stop when you run out of cards. The other way is to keep re-shuffling the cards and see where the night takes you.

Card Rules

Here are the meanings of the cards, at least according to Chuggie House Rules. I broke it up into two groups: number cards and face cards. May the best man win!

2 – “You”– When you draw a two, you get to choose a person and make them drink.

3 – “Me” – If you’re lucky enough to draw a three, this is all you, man.

4 – “Floor” – For number four, everyone needs to get low and touch the floor. The slow poke must drink from the Death Cup.

5 – “Guys” – Drink up, men.

6 – “Chicks” – Now it’s the ladies’ turn.

Rule#6. Chicks drink

7 – “Heaven” – Remember the game “Seven minutes in heaven?” For card number seven, everyone has to reach their arms up as high as they can. The last person to do this takes a drink.

8 – “Date”– For this one, the player gets to choose a drinking “date” for the game. It applies to both good drinks and sips from the death cup. “Now, which one of you lucky souls gets to drink with me the entire night?”

Which one of you is going to be my date for the night?”

9 – “Rhyme” – Obviously, “Rhyme” means you have to start speaking in rhymes. Just don’t be that guy that starts with orange. First player to not have a rhyme has to drink from the Death Cup. 

10 – “Categories” – When a player draws a ten card, they call “categories.” For example, categories can include cars, state capitals, or names of bands. Go nuts!

Ace: Waterfall; everyone drinks. The player who draws the card begins drinking and as he starts the person to his left does the same. Everyone follows suit, drinking from their own cups whenever the person on their right begins, stopping only when they do. This gives the person who drew the Ace ultimate control over how long the “waterfall” lasts.

Other than booze and cups, all you really need is a deck of cards. (Amazon link)

Jack – “Social” – Players act like the bride and groom just entered the reception hall. Everyone gets to drink!

Queen- “Question Master” – Catch someone who doesn’t respond in a question and make them drink from the Death Cup. 

King- “ Rule Master” – Come up with whatever you’d like, accents, names, anything that when broken will liven up the party (Buffalo, dominant hand, blue man?)

Ace- “ THE ACTUAL WATERFALL”– Sort of like dominoes, where one piece can’t drop till the piece before it knocks it over. Same concept, except minus the fist fight. Start it up, choose who follows you on your left or the right side of you and keep the party drinking!

Variations

Unsurprisingly, there are hundreds of variations on the meaning of the cards. Here are two variations that, while not a part of our Chuggie House Rules, are fun to add sometimes.

Thumbs: Usually a designated card such as all 5s, drawing “thumb” requires the player to place his or her thumb on the table. Everyone at the table must put quickly put their thumb down. The last person to get their thumb down on the table has to drink. You must play the thumbs rule before somebody else picks up the thumbs card.

Kings Card Variation: Some versions play that you just pour part of your drink into the death cup every time you draw a king. Here’s a great video explaining not only this video, but also Circle of Death (which is King’s Cup) as a game.

Cards on the Death Cup: A variation on the how to play the circle of death drinking game with rules itself involves everyone pouring their drink into the cup with each king but then also placing their cards on the middle cup, with at least TWO corners hanging off of the edge. Keep stacking the cards on top of the cup. When someone knocks the group of cards down trying to stack their own, it’s their turn to drink the contents of the King’s cup.
