How Can You Play Ride The Bus Drinking Game?
- First Round
The dealer or the driver will begin from his left. The person will ask the 1st question: Red or Black? He then places the 1st card in front of each player. If the player at the left of the dealer gives the right answer, he can distribute a drink. Otherwise, he must take a drink. The game continues like this until each player received his first card.
- Second Round
In this round, the dealer will ask his new question: Higher or Lower?
Now, other players will have to guess whether the next card is lower or higher in value than their 1st card. Here, the answer may look simple for some players. But, for others, it will take some logic, luck, and guesswork.
In case the player gives the right answer, he can distribute a drink. If he is incorrect, he will have to take a drink. And if you get an identical card, it is a penalty and you will have to drink.
- Third Round
In this round, the next question will be: In Between or Outside? Other players will have to guess whether the card is in between the value of the first card or it is outside.
If one player gets two identical cards, his or her luck will change. For example, if someone claims outside, he or she will win automatically. If you get the 3rd identical card, it is your time to drink.
- Fourth Round
The fourth round is the final round. Here, the dealer will ask other players to guess a suit- so either club, heart, spade, or diamond.
If someone guesses the answer right, he or she will distribute five drinks to any players of his or her choice. If the player is wrong, the person will be penalized with one drink.
Now, other players have to get their 4 distributed cards. After that, the dealer will create a face-down pyramid that includes five cards at the base and continues like four, three, two, and one.
Drink values are distributed to every horizontal row in the pyramid. For example, two drinks are equal to the five cards of the bottom row. The rule is the same for other cards as well.
- Four drinks= four cards of the second row.
- Eight drinks= three cards of the 3rd row.
- 16 drinks= two cards of the fourth row.
- A shot of liquor= one card of the 5th row.
- Riding The Bus
Once the loser in the game is found, the person will have to ride on the bus. In case more players with a matching number of cards are found, there will be a tiebreaker. The player who has the highest card must ride on the bus.
