Beer Bomb Drinking Game: Lose it Before You Lose!

Share on:

You probably have played King’s Cup before, also known as the Ring of Fire. Inspired by this traditional classic, we have a new drinking game for you: Beer Bomb! Imagine Exploding Kittens and King’s Cup having a baby.

In this game, a bomb card circulates the table, influenced by the drawn cards. The player who ends up with the bomb card when the game ends must chug a full mug!

Each card not only features a distinct drinking rule but also dictates the bomb’s movement. For instance, a card may require you to take a number of sips, plus the bomb card is passed to the left.

It’s a fun game where your only goal is to not be the player holding the bomb card when the ignite card is drawn.

One big advantage is that you can play it with as many people as you like!

Here, we will take you through the full rules and gameplay of our newly devised drinking game.

Your Game Information




20-30 party cups, 2+ ping pong balls

How to Play Beer Bomb

To start playing this game, you’ll need two decks of playing cards. Each card represents both a drinking task, as well as a movement of the Joker Cup.

One deck is used for the actual gameplay, while the other deck is used for minigames that come with specific cards.

On top of that, you’ll need a large beer mug and a shot glass. This cool Viking set contains a neat-looking tankard, shot glass, and beer opener!

It’s also important that everyone has a drink and refills available throughout the game.

Do you have everything available? Below you’ll find the rules and gameplay.

Setting Up

  • Fill a beer mug or tankard and put it in the center of the table.
  • Put one Joker aside (bomb card) and place the rest of the deck face down in a circle around the mug.
  • Keep the second deck on the side for later use.
  • Grab a drink and refills for everyone.

Beer Bomb Rules

To start playing the Beer Bomb drinking game, all players randomly draw a card from the extra deck of cards. The player with the lowest value (Ace to King) starts with the Bomb card.

The player that starts with the bomb card then draws a card from the circle and follows the rules for that card. After that, the player to their left takes the next card.

This continues in a clockwise direction.

Whenever a person draws the second Joker, also called the Ignite card, the bomb goes ‘BOOM!’ and the person holding the bomb card must chug the mug!

The rules for each card are as follows:

  • ACE = everyone drinks 5 + give bomb
  • 2-5 = take sips x number + bomb left
  • 5-9 = give sips x number + bomb right
  • 10 = waterfall game + give bomb
  • JACK = Slap Jack – loser takes 5 & bomb
  • QUEEN = Find the Queen – loser takes bomb
  • KING = everyone drinks 5 + take bomb


Everyone should have a full drink before starting this minigame. At the count of three, all players start drinking their beer. The player who drew this card stops at any moment, after which the player to their left is allowed to stop. If they stop, the third person can. This continues until the last player stops drinking.


the player drawing a Jack lays it faced up on the table. Everyone then slaps the Jack as quickly as possible. The last person to do so loses the round.

Find the Queen

Take one Queen, one Jack, and a number of random other cards totaling the number of players. Fill a shot glass and place it at the center of the table.

All players randomly draw one card and check it privately. The player who drew the Jack reveals themselves.

After that, everyone closes their eyes and the Jack starts counting down from 10. Within these ten seconds, the Queen takes the shot as quietly as possible.

After the 10 seconds, the Jack guesses who’s the Queen. If they are right, the Queen loses. If they are wrong, the Jack loses.

Wrap Up

Beer Bomb is a fun new drinking game that is playable with both smaller and larger groups. The smaller the groups, the higher the drinking intensity.
