Diwali is right around the corner and we’re sure you’re already prepping for the insane Diwali party you’re going to attend or host! I’m meeting my friends this weekend so I decided to research a little on the wonderful games we can play. You can check out the list too and make your life easier!
Is your party even legit if there’s no Teen Patti involved? Most of India knows how to play this game, but if you don’t, here’s what you gotta do – The game starts with one of the players dealing the cards. The cards are usually dealt counter-clockwise. Before starting the game, usually an agreed number of cards are picked or dealt to decide the dealer for the opening hand. Each player may be required to put up an ante into the pot before picking/dealing the cards. The winning player gets the pot. The loser has to drink.
Who doesn’t play poker? Who doesn’t love poker? Here’s how you play it – a complete hand is dealt with each player, and players bet in one round, with raising and re-raising allowed. To spice things up, you can also play strip poker, eh eh?
Apart from the fact that we usually play this game every Friday in office, flip cup is really such a fun game! Two teams of an equal number of players stand on opposite sides of a table, facing one another. In front of each person is a cup of beer. At the start, it is customary for the initiating players to make a toast, after which the first member of each team drinks the entirety of their beverage. When finished, the cup is placed open side up at the edge of the table, and the player who drank it attempts to flip the cup, by flicking or lifting the bottom until it flips and lands face down on the table, sitting on its mouth. The player may not use two hands, or blow on the cup to guide the cup to flip over. If the player is unsuccessful on the first try, the cup is reset and re-flipped. Only after the first teammate is done flipping successfully can the next person proceed. Additionally, subsequent players may not touch or manipulate their cup until the previous player has successfully flipped their cup. Whichever team finishes drinking and flipping all its cups first wins.
It’s really simple and more importantly, a lot of fun! Just read this blog and you’ll know.

Hey! Antakshri is the best game to play with friends, in a house, with alcohol.
Drink a shot whenever someone dies. It’s sad but fun.
Straight face is simple. You see, it’s tough to keep a straight face when you’re high (on alcohol or anything else, we don’t judge) and this game challenges you to keep one. Everyone writes funny or inappropriate sentences on small pieces of paper – ones that are tough to read while keeping a straight face. Each player picks up a chit of paper and tries to keep a straight face. The one who giggles or reacts has to get a drink, basically making that person pathetically drunk!
The best game for horrible people and we all have friends who are horrible people.
Traditionally, each player takes a turn in order, drawing a single card from the top of the deck. Before looking at the card, they must call either “Black” or “Red” indicating their guess as to the color of the card. If they guess correctly their turn is completed and the next player draws. If they guess incorrectly they must drink a specified type and volume of alcohol before their turn is over.
Have a great Diwali!
