If you’re looking for some fun games to play during the 2020 Presidential Debate tonight on September 29, why not consider a drinking game or bingo? Here are some ideas to help you have a great watch party this evening during the Donald Trump versus Joe Biden debate.

Remember to drink responsibly and take an Uber or Lyft home if you’ve had too much to drink. There will be many opportunities to drink tonight during the debates if you plan your game right.

Drinking Game Ideas

Take a sip if any of these happen:

  • Trump says: “Sleepy Joe.”
  • Trump says: “Radical Democrat.”
  • Biden tries to come up with a nickname for Trump.
  • Biden talks about Trump’s taxes.
  • Trump makes fun of Biden for wearing a mask.
  • Biden talks about Trump and Russia.
  • Trump talks about Biden and Hunter.
  • Biden or Trump says something that is hard to understand.
  • Biden and Trump argue about peaceful protesters.
  • Moderator looks confused.
  • Trump says: “You had 47 years.”
  • Either ignores the moderator.
  • They both talk over each other.
  • Someone says: “All lives matter.”
  • Biden talks about Obama.
  • Trump talks about his children.
  • Either candidate calls the other racist.
  • Someone talks about antifa.
  • Biden says: “C’mon man.”
  • Trump says two words in succession like “very very” or “best best.”
  • Trump says: “Chinavirus.”

Take a shot if any of these happen:

  • Trump looms over Biden intimidatingly.

  • Someone talks about QAnon.
  • Biden or Trump says the wrong name.

  • Trump talks about a third term.
  • Kamala’s name is mispronounced.
  • Trump talks about his hair being real.

Take two shots if either candidate stops making sense completely and even confuses the moderator.
