By Mason Mallett | 31 Jan 2019 at 2:30pm

So, you have your friends round and are trying to think of some drinking games to play? Why not put on some TV and play these hilarious drinking games which don’t require much more than your TV and your favourite alcoholic beverages!


We are going to share a few games which will be split into two categories – generic TV drinking games, specific TV show drinking games and Netflix drinking games.

These drinking games are meant to be fun, please drink responsibly!


Generic TV drinking games

These drinking games will just require you to have a TV, they are not specific to a certain TV show and are playable at any time, so long as your TV is turned on!

Sticky Item Drinking Game

The sticky item drinking game is simple. Simply stick something to your TV such as a small paper moustache, when it lines up perfectly with a face on TV – take a drink! For this one, there are no real set rules, you can make your own, for example sticking some blue tack on the screen and you drink every time it lands on a persons face or eye.


TV Word Drinking Game

For this drinking game get everyone in your party to choose a word, every time one of these words is mentioned take a drink. All words must be different. We recommend choosing a word relating somewhat to the TV show that you are watching, for example if you are watching Love Island, some good words would be banter, mug, pied, sort and grafting.

TV Advert Drinking Game

This game focuses on the breaks in between your TV shows (of course don’t play this game if you’re watching BBC!). As soon as the advert hits everyone must strike a pose which you decide at the start of the game. The last person to finish this pose has to drink. You can include this game into the other drinking games mentioned above!


Specific TV Show Drinking Games

These drinking games all revolve around a specific show, we cover the most popular TV shows and drinking games associated with them.
