Darts Drinking Games

If you’re looking to make things a little more interesting when playing darts, why not try mixing darts and alcohol. In most cases, it turns out to be the classic combination and can be great among a group of friends.

We’ve listed three of the best darts drinking games and how to play them, to keep you entertained for hours.

So, let’s get into it.

Darts Drinking Game #1

To play this game, you’ll need the following: 

  • A dartboard
  • Six darts
  • A Spirit of your choice
  • Shot glasses

Number of Players

This game is best for 2-4 players. With four players, you can make two teams.

How to Play

To start this game, one player from each team throws a dart.

  • The player whose dart lands closest to the bullseye wins the first round. As a result, the loser has to drink a shot
  • The player who won the first round will then get the chance to throw three darts. They must hit either the single, double, or treble of the numbers between 15-20 on the board. If the dart fails to hit any of these areas, take a drink
  • If you hit the three sections of each of these numbers, it “closes out,” and that number isn’t part of the game anymore
  • After closing out a number, any additional hits on this number will require the thrower to take a drink

How the Game Ends

The game ends if the numbers 15-20, as well as the bullseye, are “closed out.” To which the losing team will have to take a shot.

Darts Drinking Game # 2

This is another fun-filled dart drinking game that you can enjoy with as many players as you like.

Number of Players

You do need at least four players to play this game

How to Play

Firstly, place shot glasses under the dartboard. Each glass should represent a random number that appears on the board.

Each player will then take turns to throw one dart. When a dart lands on a number on the board that represents a shot, take a drink.

When the Game Ends

The game ends when you run out of alcohol or can no longer see the board!

Darts Drinking Game # 3

The name of the game is Beer Darts. You’ll need some steel tip darts and beer cans for this game.

Although there are numerous variations of this game, the theme behind this game is throwing a dart at your opponent’s beer can.

How to Play

The players should sit in a circle with one can of beer in front of them. Following are the rules that the player must follow when playing this game.

  • A minimum of two players can play this game
  • When a dart hits your can and doesn’t puncture it, you must take a sip of beer
  • If the dart of the opponent player punctures your can, you must drink the whole can
  • If your can falls over and doesn’t get punctured, you have to take a sip of beer


Playing darts is always fun. But, introducing alcohol makes for an even better time that can provide you and your friends with hours of fun. You can play these drinking games at a bar or at home.

As you know, it takes extreme focus to play a good game of darts. Therefore, adding alcohol to the equation makes it more difficult and unpredictable.

So, next time you’re hanging around with friends, at home or in the pub. Don’t forget to try out any of the games we’ve mentioned above.
