Bullshit (a.k.a. Cheat) is a card drinking game that's all about calling people out if you think they are bullshitting you. It's undeniably one of the greatest drinking games ever!

How to play Bullshit

First of all, deal out a whole pack of cards evenly to all players. Depending on how many are in your group, you may have to use more than one pack. Once that’s done, the objective of the game is to get rid of all of your cards, as fast as you possibly can.

To start play, the player to the left of the dealer must place one or more Aces facedown in the middle of the table. The number of cards must be declared, e.g. “Two Aces!”. The next player must then play twos, then threes, and so on. Once you reach Kings, play starts over again from Aces.

Sounds simple, right? Well, we haven’t told you the best bit. Players have to play one or more card on their turn, regardless of whether they actually have it or not. Therefore, this game is all about making the other players believe that you are being truthful. If another player doesn’t believe you, they must declare it by calling “Bullshit!”.

If a player challenges you by saying ‘Bullshit’, you must turn over the cards you just played. If you were telling the truth, the accusing player must drink and pick up all of the cards. If you were cheating, you have to drink and pick up all of the cards.

The game ends once one player has gotten rid of their entire hand. All other players are declared losers and must down their drinks.
