The Office Drinking Game: Rules And How to Play?

The Office has to be one of the best shows that ever hit US television. Right? Well, the UK, too, although I stand firm that Steve Carell is better. But hey, let’s not start that debate now. There’s a time and place for that another day.

This hilarious show has brought people so many laughs over the years, including myself, it’s relatable, cringe-worthy, and I just love all the quotes and characters, so when I recently heard about turning this show into a drinking game for parties, I was straight on the phone organizing our next game night.

The Office Drinking Game is a totally awesome way to bring friends together, enjoy one of the best shows on TV, and perhaps admit to just how many times you’ve seen the show, which will definitely give you the advantage, or at least, get you much drunker, much quicker.

So, call your pals, get the beers in, and let’s play The Office Drinking Game.

How to Play The Office Drinking Game?

How To Play The Office Drinking Game

Don’t get me wrong, as far as game instructions go, this isn’t going to take long. In fact, it’s probably one of the easiest games to teach, so you’ll be glad to know you won’t have much to read until you’re fully clued up and ready to play.

All you need is some booze, a comfortable place to sit, and television (and the ability to download or stream the office, of course).

Next, all you need is some ideas of when to drink. You’ll need to agree on which episode you’ll be playing too first.

If you’re stuck, I’ve got a great selection coming right up. That’s the great thing about this game; you can pretty much make the rules up before you start.

Let’s get you some inspiration, shall we?

  1. Drink when Ryan is on his phone
  2. Drink when you see Meredith drink
  3. Drunk when the word “urine” is mentioned
  4. Drink when Angela’s being bitchy
  5. Drink when Creed mentions his “shady past.”
  6. Drink when Michael calls a meeting
  7. Drink when you hear the famous saying, “That’s what she said”
  8. Drink when Erin or Phil say, “Dunder Mifflin”
  9. Drink when Stanlet “Doesn’t Care”
  10. Drink when you hear “WUPHF.”
  11. Drink when someone says “Todd Packer.”
  12. Drink when Stanley does a puzzle
  13. Drink when Kevin spills his chili
  14. Drink when Michael tells Toby to go home
  15. Drink when Kelly hits on Ryan

While there aren’t many rules or instructions involved with The Office Drinking game, there are two important things to remember, which I will cover in the next section.

Tips And Rules For The Office Card Game

The first rule of the game is to have fun. Don’t take the game too seriously, and use the opportunity to bond with friends over a great TV show, drinks, and laughter.

The second rule is to ensure you drink responsibly. Below are some tips on how to ensure responsible drinking and gameplay.

  1. Pace Yourself: Drinking games can get pretty intense, I know, speaking from personal experience. The key is to pace yourself, keep the drinks mild, and use small measures.
  2. Know When to Stop: If you start feeling like you’ve had a bit too much to drink or no longer feel well or comfortable, tell your friends you wish to sit it out or leave.
  3. No Pressure: If you’re on the other side of that, and a guest tells you they no longer wish to play, don’t pressure them to continue drinking or make them feel embarrassed for stepping out.
  4. Designated Driver: Ensure you’ve agreed to a designated driver at the start of the game, or arrange a cab or lift home from a family member or trusted friend.

That’s What She Said!

Overall, The Office Drinking Game is an excellent way to bring friends and family together at any game night or party and a way to let loose and enjoy each other’s company.

The thing I love the most about this kind of drinking game is that you can totally make it your own, and much like the Harry Potter drinking game, it can be made more challenging by introducing varied drinks for specific parts, especially if you and your friends are die-hard fans of the show.

So, if you’re a fan of The Office, and I’m guessing that’s what brought you here today, then go ahead and play this excellent drinking, but remember to play it safe and drink responsibly.
