So, let’s find out how to play.

What You’ll Need to Play The Family Guy Drinking Game?

24 Pack Acrylic Shot Glasses

The great thing about drinking games is that you do not need much to play. Grab your drinking buddies, pour your favorite drinks, and stream Family Guy.

If you want to add even more humor to your night, I recently purchased these shot glasses. They’re a great way to impress your friends and put a smile on everyone’s face.

And that’s that. You’re ready to play.

When to Drink

So, now you’ve got friends and drinks sorted, all that’s left to do is hit play on your favorite episode of Family Guy and get drinking.

As I said, you can pretty much make up your own rules, but I thought I’d give you some inspiration with some ideas that I use when playing.

  1. The evil monkey appears

  14. Whenever there’s violence
  15. When someone spies on a woman in the toilet

Rules And Gameplay

Rules And Variations

There are tons of variations of the Family Guy drinking game, and the world is your oyster when it comes to rules. 

For example, for the die-hard fans, you have a rule that whenever a song breaks out, players must sing at least one line correctly, and if they fail, they have to take a drink.

Safety And Drinking Games

I don’t mean to sound like a party pooper, but of course, there are some safety rules you should put into place and adhere to whenever playing any drinking game. Let’s see.

  • Stay Hydrated: When drinking significant amounts of alcohol, staying hydrated is vital. I like to alternate between alcohol and water throughout the night to prevent dehydration.
  • Fill Up: Make sure you eat plenty before you start to line your stomach. As it’s a social gathering, you could order pizza, and then when you’re done playing Family Guy, you can play the pizza box game too.
  • Pace Yourself: Try to stay focused. To avoid doing so, you can have different-sized drinks for different parts. For example, only sip your drink for the parts that occur frequently, and save the shots for the rarer scenes.
  • No Peer Pressure: If you see someone who doesn’t want to join in, don’t pressure them to do so, and the same goes for yourself, don’t feel pressured by others to keep going when you’ve had enough.
  • Know Your Limits: Don’t feel you must keep up with everyone else at the party. After all, everyone has different tolerance levels when it comes to alcohol. Know yours, and stick to it.


The Family Guy drinking game is an excellent way to enhance the entertainment at your next social gathering, and the best part is you can customize the game as it suits you.

This game has so many variations, so it will never get boring. However, if you fancy changing things up, why not try the Harry Potter drinking game and bring some magic to your night?

Don’t forget the boring bit. Play safe. Always ensure you’re with people you trust and have a safe way to get home when playing drinking games, and remember to stay hydrated throughout the night and not pressure others.

So, as Peter would say, have a freakin’ sweet time; I’ll catch you on the flip side.
