Brewelist Advent Calendar 2016 – More Advanced Drinking Games – Drinking Quest and Exploding Kittens

We’re getting closer to that holiday but some of you are going to have gatherings sooner. So, it’s important to have PLENTY of distractions for your guests.

If you’re the king of your local nerd kingdom, sometimes the simple stuff simply will not do. It’s for this reason that we’re proposing two slightly more advanced games for your friends.

Drinking Quest is by the prolific Jason Anarchy (he’s also a pretty friendly dude). It incorporates humor (some bawdy, some not), RPG stylings and…well drinking. The game has some pretty clear drinking rules but you can adapt those to non-alcoholic beverages if you’re trying to be responsible, or, like me, lose a lot.

It looks like the original Drinking Quest in physical form is sold out, but you can get it on iOS for $3.99 or Android for $1.79 (prices are in USD).

Also worth the mention – obviously as this is a drinking game, it’s not suitable for minors (unless they’re playing with the non drinking rules or have an “advanced” sense of humor). It is, however, a ton of fun and worth looking into.



Exploding Kittens, which took the card gaming world by storm by being the most backed Kickstarter Game in history, is also a little more complex than the games we mentioned last time. You can still get the physical cards on Amazon and the like, and if you’re feeling particularly naughty, there is a NSFW edition you can obtain.

If physical isn’t your thing, or you are very, very pressed for time, this game is also available on iOS for a mere $2.79 US. Android users get a bit of a discount, paying only $1.99 US for the same privilege.

I’ve personally not played Exploding Kittens (yet) but my sister backed it on Kickstarter and raves that it is incredibly fun. While smart, wonderful and good looking, she also has great taste, so that was enough for me.

Also, kittens.

Drinking Quest: Journey into Draught Brings the Party Back to Kickstarter

You may recall that reviewed the Drinking Quest Trilogy, which was funded to fruition in 2014. This hybrid of a drinking game and tabletop RPG has taken the indie gaming world by storm and continues to grow.

Anarchy’s most recent Kickstarter success is the more Zen card game Haiku Warrior. This game expands the Drinking Quest Universe and brings back many of our old friends from the original Trilogy.

As of this writing, the game has hit its funding goal and has 28 days remaining for us to hit all the luscious stretch goals I’m sure he has planned. (Such as stylish and hilarious coasters of our favorite colleagues).


Backers can choose many tiers, some of which also give you discounted access to previous games by Jason Anarchy. I can vouch personally for the quality and hilarity of the games and if you and yours are good at RPGs, it’s a fun addition to any get together.

I mean…there are cards with Sexy Cthulu and Earl Grey Hot.
