The Best Party Bus Drinking Games

Taking a party bus is fun, no matter how you do it. You and your friends are together, with no worries and no responsibilities while a professional driver gets you where you need to go. You can play music, dance, and even have a drink (or two) if everyone on the bus is over the age of 21. But do you know how to take it to the next level? Games.

Particularly for longer rides (and let’s be honest, getting anywhere in Los Angeles can sometimes take forever), drinking games are a great distraction and a way to get everyone involved. They’re also ridiculously easy to play on a party bus, where everyone is already grouped together. Plus, anyone who isn’t drinking alcohol can still participate with any nonalcoholic beverage of their choice.

Here are a few of our favorite party bus drinking games!

Truth or Drink

This game puts a new spin on the classic Truth or Dare, replacing the dare with a drink.

How to play:

The first player will ask the other players a question. It should be something other than a yes or no question, preferably something embarrassing or dirty. Each player then has the chance to either answer the question (truthfully) or to take a drink. The game continues with each player getting to pose a question to the rest of the passengers on the party bus.

Never Have I Ever

This is a great icebreaker and requires no materials other than a drink for each player, making it the perfect party bus game.

How to play:

To start, one player will announce something that they’ve never done before. For example, “Never have I ever…eaten caviar.” Any player who has eaten caviar will then take a drink. Then the next person says something they’ve never done, moving on down the row of passengers in the party bus. This game can get pretty raunchy and inappropriate, so beware!

Cheers to the Governor

Cheers to the Governor is a little more complicated than the other party bus drinking games we’ve listed here, but it’s a lot of fun if played right.

How to play:

This game is played by counting, 1 person at a time, from 1 to 21. Before it starts, the group needs to agree on a first rule. This rule replaces one of the numbers with an action. For example, the rule could be to stand up and clap instead of saying the number six. If the person who was supposed to say, “six” forgets to stand and clap instead, they take a drink. Then, when the count gets to 21, everyone says, “Cheers to the governor!” and takes a drink together.

Every new round of Cheers to the Governor will include a new rule, while keeping the old rule/s in place. This makes it more complicated with every round, leading to more drinks, and well…you get the idea.

Play Responsibly!

If you want to play drinking games on a party bus, make sure you drink responsibly. Everyone on the bus should be over the age of 21, and you should never pressure someone to drink who doesn’t want to. They can still play, just with a nonalcoholic beverage! We also recommend choosing drinks with lower alcohol contents, like light beers or seltzers. Everyone can play longer and will be ready to party when they get to their destination, instead of being too far gone.
