This is one of the greatest drinking games known to man. It requires no deck of cards, no dice and almost no brains. All you need is alcohol, your buddies, and a watch or a clock. To top it all off, you can play Power Hour wherever, whenever and however you like! To start off, here are the basic rules of Power hour and below are some extra fun ideas to add to the drinking game of champions.
Power Hour is super straight forward. Take a shot or swig of beer every minute. 1 hour usually averages about six beers. So, make sure you’ve got plenty of brewskees! That’s it, the almighty power hour, one of the absolute finest of drinking games!
Additional Power Hour Ideas:
- If you have to go to the bathroom before the hour is up, you have to down a beer.
- The first person to call out the five minute mark (every 5, 10, 15, 20 minutes etc.) gets to pick someone to drink for that amount of seconds. Say, you call out the 5 minute mark at 11:10 PM – you can make anyone in the group drink for 5 seconds.
- Anytime you catch someone just sipping their beer, call out Mississippi! If everyone agrees that the person was sipping their beer like a sweet little Misses Sippy, they have to pound the entire beer.
- Drinking every minute will get everyone sloshed much more quickly, but it might also force you to get more beer later. So, another way to play Power Hour would be to drink every 5 minutes instead of every 1 minute. Here’s the catch, the first person to call out the 5 minute mark drinks first and everyone else can’t stop drinking until that person stops drinking. By playing with these set of rules, you can save some beer without sacrificing your rate of inebriation. And so, be safe and enjoy one of the simplest drinking games – Power Hour.
