may the fourth be with you, may the 4th be with you, star wars day


May 4, 2015 is “Star Wars Day” because of the pun on the catchphrase “May the Force be with you” to “May the 4th be with you.” Celebrate the holiday with drinks! Here are some fun, Star Wars themed drinking games for you and your friends to play—some with cards, some with apps—but all fun!

But please remember that if you do choose to play these games, know your limit and never drive afterwards.

A fun Star Wars take on Edward 40 Hands, an homage to the 1990 Tim Burton film, Luke Lightsaber Hands is a fun drinking game that requires absolutely no luck or skill.

In it, participants duct tape two 40 oz (~1.2 liters) bottles of malt liquor to their hands.

Because their hands are now incapacitated, players can’t do anything until the alcohol is finished: no opening doors, no going to the bathroom, no nothing…

The person to finish their 40s the fastest wins.

3. Princess Leia Flip or Strip

This game explanation can get a little long-winded, so we’ll let the pros explain:

Flip a coin and while it is in the air, call heads or tails. If you guess right, pass the coin to your right. If you guess wrong, pass the coin to your left and either take one article of clothing off (anything that is a pair counts as one item) or take a drink.

If you guess right, you can choose to flip again. Another successful guess lets you pass the coin to anyone of your choosing. A wrong guess has normal consequences.

If you guess right three times in a row, you may retrieve an article of clothing and put it back on. The coin is then passed to your right.

The only other rule is lousy coin tosses need to be re-tossed.

Circle of Death (or King’s Cup) is an easy-to-play drinking card game with various regional differences. Here you will find the version played in New York City. All you need is a deck of cards and booze.

To set up the game you will need a full deck of cards, without the jokers, and either a cup full of anything alcoholic or a can of beer. Put the beer or drink in the center of the table and arrange the cards face-down around it.

Decide who goes first and start drawing cards.

Here are what the cards mean (remember, this is regional):

2 – “Two for you” – Give out two drinks
3 – “Three for me” – Take three drinks
4 – “Whores” – Girls drink
5 – “Bust a jive” – Do a dance move, the next person then does that dance move and adds to it, and so on. The dance moves keep going until somebody can’t execute them in the correct order. That person drinks.
6 – “Dicks” – Guys drink
7 – “Heaven” – Everybody reaches to the sky immediately. Last person to do so drinks.
8 – “Pick a date” – Pick somebody to drink with you. Every time you screw up or have to drink, they have to drink, too. But if they drink, you don’t have to (unless you both are “dating” each other.)
9 – “Bust a rhyme” – The person who draws a card says a word to rhyme. Orange, purple, and silver (and any other non-rhyming English words) are illegal. The people then go around in order trying to rhyme with that word. No repeats. If someone can’t think of a rhyme or accidentally repeats, they drink. Note: For more advanced people, rhythm can be kept.
10 – “Categories” – The person who draws the card picks a category, like “farm animals” or “brands of cereal.” The people then go around in the circle naming things within this category. No repeats. If someone repeats or can’t think of something to contribute, they drink.
Jack – “Never have I ever” – Everybody puts up five fingers. The person who drew the card says something they’ve never done, and anybody who has done it has to put a finger down. It can be as dirty or as clean as you like. The person who loses all five fingers first drinks.
Queen – “Question master” – This person is now the question master. Until the next queen is drawn, this person can ask anyone a question. If they fail to answer the question with a question, they drink.
King – “Make a rule” – A rule is made that lasts until the end of the game. Rules can be compounding, so after all four kings are played, there will be four rules. Anytime a rule is broken, and a person gets called on it, they have to drink.
Ace- “Waterfall” – Everybody drinks until the person who drew the card stops drinking. The last person to draw “Waterfall” has to drink the cup or beer at the center of the cards.
