Virtual drinking games are a great way to have fun with your friends, even if you’re not in the same room! They can be played online using different platforms like Zoom, Skype, Google Hangouts, and loads more. Our team here at TalkTales Entertainment got together and created this definitive list of the top 10 virtual happy hour game ideas for you to try out. Enjoy and drink responsibly!
Virtual happy hour is a chance to hang out and get hammered with people in real-time from all over the world, or right down the street. It takes away the loneliness of drinking by yourself at home while still giving you an excuse to drink as much as possible >virtually<. Up your game with these badass virtual happy hour activities and make some memories… well – vague recollections at least. (P.S> – this list is by no means in order)
This one takes a little prep and will require that each “team” have phones (or tablets, laptops, etc), 20 solo cups, and a couple of ping pong balls. However, the set up is well worth the wait as you and your friends bring back the old days with this drinking game classic.
With this game, you should follow all of the same rules as the traditional version including reracking when needed. Hang out and have fun with your group without worrying about getting home or being forced to crash on your buddy’s couch.
Power Hour is a virtual drinking game that you can play with your friends in the comfort of your own home. It’s also not necessary for everyone in a Power Hour group to drink liquor shots. You can switch things up and go with beer or cocktails if you prefer. Some ideas are cosmos, mojitos, screwdrivers, etc.
The entire point of this game is to get as wasted as possible as quickly as possible. It is a ridiculous amount of fun to watch your friends get progressively drunker – and know you won’t be the one responsible for cleaning up their mess.

Come up with your own questions and learn more than you ever needed to know about your friends, families, and coworkers.

Heads Up was started as a segment on the Ellen Degeneres show and was so much fun that it was developed into its own app. It has since been integrated with several video chatting platforms making it easier than ever to play while remaining socially distanced.
