Beer 99

Pin It

An interesting card game that involves maths and drinking; the object of the game is to play cards into a pile and have the value of the pile equal 99.

How to Play

You start off by dealing 4 cards to each player, then you put the rest of the deck down turning the top card over. Play goes around the circle with each person playing a card, mentally keeping track of total value of the pile. However, the following cards have special meanings:


Fours may be used as a skip card when you have none to play, can also be used to skip drinking responsibilities to the next player.


When in the 90’s, this drops the value of pile by 10, otherwise it’s a regular card.


These may be used to avoid drinking responsibilities or place drinking responsibilities on someone else, usually used near end of game.

After you play a card, draw another from the stack. When out of cards, reshuffle those already played. Socials occur whenever the total equals a number ending in 9 (19, 29, 39 etc), and players must all drink. Special socials on 69 and 71 (69+2 fingers up the ass). On special socials, you must drink twice.

When someone throws down the card that equals 99, the next person must drink 1/2 glass, unless they have a special card (hopefully a King, as this means they can pick the person they want to drink).
