Electricity is a UK drinking game that is great for downing a 12 pack with your buddies. You're guaranteed to drink and all players stay involved the whole time. Play with your group of friends and drink when you create an Electric Current. Let it flow!
What You Need:
3 Players or More
About 3 or 4 Beers per person for each game
Full Deck of Cards (two decks for large groups)
How to Play:
Start off by shuffling your deck of cards and disperse them evenly to everyone playing.
Do not look at your cards!
Once all of the cards have been dealt, the player to the left of the dealer begins and turns go counter clockwise.
Explain to everyone that in order to drink, they must create what is called a "current" between players.
An electric current is created when 1 player flips over their card, then the next player also reveals a card that matches.
Here are the matches that create a "current" between players
As you can see it is very easy to get a match.
When a current is created, the 1st revealed card determines the countdown when you have to drink.
Remember don't look at your cards, you reveal them randomly on your turn.
The first player to start the game, randomly flips over 1 card from their hand.
If there is no match, then the player discards their non-matching card, and the next player in line goes.
If you get a match, then a current starts and goes until someone reveals a card that does not match. Therefore breaking the current!
If you break the current you do not have to drink! Instead you will be the one that does the countdown while "current" players are drinking.
Anyone in the rotation that matched becomes apart of the "current".
The starting card and its value is what you use to determine how long the "current" has to drink.
For example if the "current" starts with a number 2 card. Players who are part of the current have to drink for the count of 2 when the current breaks.
If it's a 7 card then players who matched have to drink to the count of 7.
Jacks are to the count of 11
Queens to the count of 12
Kings to the count of 13
Aces to the count of 14
Once the counting begins that's when the fun really starts!
When players are ready to drink to the count of the card revealed. Players who didn't match get to do the counting.
This makes it fun because some people can count longer than others to be jerks. And! It gets everyone involved so there are no sleepers.
After drinking the person that broke the "current" starts the new round.
Keep going until you are out of cards or use two decks to keep the game going longer.
Please drink safely! This one is a doozy for sure.
