A party bus is any bus that has been modified for party purposes. Some of these are for-hire while others drive around cities that are known for their nightlife and pick up passengers at specific stops along their route.

A party bus is a great way to get between destinations when you’ve been drinking and don’t need to be driving. These buses also keep the party spirit going strong by including drinking games and encouraging fun and rowdy experiences for everyone riding.

Read on to find some of our favorite party bus drinking games.

Option #1. Never Have I Ever

When you’re looking for an icebreaker game to get the party bus started right, Never Have I Ever is always a good place to begin. This is a simple game that many kids and teens know how to play, although without the alcohol element. When playing with groups of adults, remember that questions will probably get dirty fast and make sure everyone is okay with this before you begin playing. This game is great for a party bus with a lot of stops, since players can leave and join the game without affecting the outcome in any way.

Materials Needed:

  • Drinks for everyone on the bus (preferably beer)
  • At least 5 people, but more is better

How to play:

  1. Before the game begins, determine how much everyone should be drinking per round. Decide whether you will do shots or sips. The length of the bus ride can help you choose.
  2. Ideally, all players should sit in a circle for this game. However, if you’re playing on a moving bus, you can simply go down the rows instead.
  3. The first player must announce something they have never done before. For example, they might say, “Never have I ever been out of the country.”
  4. Any player who has been out of the country (or whatever else the first player says) must then take a drink.
  5. Ideally, the players who have done these things should then be encouraged to share their stories. Of course, these stories can get raunchy, so it’s important to make sure you’re playing in a group of people who are comfortable with this!

Option #2. Truth or Drink

[amazon bestseller="alcohol drinking accessory" items=3 grid=3 button=none]

If you’ve ever played Truth or Dare, then you already know the basics of how to play Truth or drink. This is a more adult version of the game that replaces the dare element with a drinking element instead. Everyone playing this game should be given a few minutes to come up with some good questions, and the questions should be encouraged to be as raunchy and adult-themed as possible—depending on what the players are comfortable with. This game is meant to get people to share their embarrassing and dirty stories while also getting drunk. It’s perfect for party buses that will be making a lot of stops.

Materials Needed:

  • Drinks for everyone on the bus (preferably beer)
  • At least 8 people

How to play:

  1. There are some variations to this game, but for the most part, it plays like traditional Truth or Dare with a drinking element instead.
  2. The first player must ask a question to the other players. This cannot be a yes or no question, since the game is a little too boring when all the questions can be answered so simply. For the most fun, questions should be personal or a little dirty—again, if you’re in company willing to play this way.
    • A good icebreaker question is, “What is the most embarrassing thing you’ve ever done when you’ve been drunk?”
  3. Players can then choose to either answer with the truth—and must tell the whole bus their story—or take a shot of their drink instead. In this way, the drink takes over the dare position of traditional truth or dare.
  4. The game continues around the group with each player asking a question to the rest of the bus.

Option #3. Cheers to the Governor

Cheers to the Governor is a little more complicated than the other two games on this list, but it’s still a fun experience for a party bus. This game is best played with a bus that has more people on it, because the game is more enjoyable in a larger group. This is a noisy game that’s sure to get everyone drunk fast, so make sure the people playing understand this before you begin. Like the other two games on our list, you don’t need anything but drinks and players to get started with this party bus experience—and someone who knows how to lead the game.

Materials Needed:

  • Drinks for everyone on the bus (preferably beer)
  • At least 10 people

How to play:

  1. First, decide as a group what your beginning rule will be. For example, you might say, “when you get to the number 7, blow a raspberry instead of saying 7.”
  2. Then, everyone on the bus begins taking turns saying a number. Starting with 1, the players will count to 21, one number at a time.
  3. If the player who is supposed to say 7 doesn’t remember to blow a raspberry instead, that player must take a shot. (This is true no matter what your beginning rule is.)
  4. When you reach 21, everyone says, “Cheers to the governor!” and takes a shot together as a group.
  5. Then, the player who said the last number can choose a new rule. This rule is added onto the previous rule and the game continues.
  6. The longer you play and the more rounds you make, the more rules will be added on. This makes the game harder to remember and means more people will get it wrong and end up taking shots when they make mistakes—which will, of course, make the game even more difficult to remember.
