Soju is a popular Korean alcoholic drink with a sweet taste that makes Singaporeans love it too. If you’re drinking and soju is part of your stash, then you should try this simple yet fun game!
Don’t throw your bottle caps and put them to an exciting use. You might have noticed that Soju’s bottle caps have a long strip that extends. What you need to do is to twist the strip until it’s close to coming off. Then, each of you will take turns in flicking the strip. Whoever flicks it off gets a punishment – a shot. But, you can also tweak the mechanics a little and make the flicker the game’s winner!
What you need: A soju bottle cap only!
2. Titanic Drinking Game

You’ve probably watched Titanic, but have you tried the drinking game adapted from the famous movie? Well, if you haven’t yet, we’re here to spill out the mechanics for you and your friends to enjoy!
First, get a glass full of beer. Place a shot glass on top, then fill it with soju (yes, soju again. We obviously love this drink, don’t we?) until the shot glass is close to sinking. Once the shot glass is stabilised, players will take turns in pouring a small amount of soju into it. The player whose pour causes the floating shot glass to sink loses and will chug the concoction as a punishment.
Trivia: Soju plus beer equals Somaek. It is a portmanteau of soju and maekju (beer) in Korean.
What you need: Soju, beer, shot glass, and a large beer glass. Don’t know where to get the best beer? Check out our list of the best craft beers on the island through this link.

Did you know that your favourite snack isn’t only for ice creams and desserts? Pocky can be partnered with drinking too! Originating from Japan, this game will put you in an awkward yet fun drinking situation.
To play the Pocky drinking game, two players will bite one Piocky stick end to end. As they get closer while nibbling the stick, the player who chickens out, stops, and pulls back first is considered the loser.
While this game might get you all awkward, some think this is a great opportunity to get closer to someone – if you know what I mean!
4. Pin Pon Pan Game
When you’re tipsy, your response time may not be as quick. Your mind may wander and wander, which is why you should definitely try this game: Pin Pon Pan! It’s a Japanese drinking game that requires nothing but you and your quick wit.
To start the game, one player shouts “Pin”. The one on his left says “Pon”, followed by “Pan” by the person next to him. Basically, persons sitting next to each other complete the “Pin Pon Pan” sequence. The person who said “Pan” shall point to anyone in the circle to start another cycle. If you’re caught unaware, or you delay saying “Pan”, you take a shot.
This game may sound easy peasy, but when you’re tipsy, this may be a game full of laughter and unattentiveness!
What you need: Nothing! Just you and your attention.
5. Image Game: Who’s Most Likely

If you’re wondering what the Image Game is, it is the Korean version of the popular “ Who’s Most Likely To” game. This game, like Pin Pon Pan, doesn’t need any props for you to enjoy.
To play the Image Game, one player begins by saying a statement such as “The person who’s most likely to beat the red light” or “ The person who is most likely to be late for a meeting”. Then, the other players start to point who they think best fits the statement. The person with the most points should drink.
As a twist, if you think you’re gonna take the shot, you can block the votes by crossing your arms like an X! When this happens, all the players who pointed you take a shot.
Things can escalate when you guys are drunk. Statements can get as fishy, but remember, it’s just a game! Don’t take it too seriously and enjoy the rest of the drinking.
What you need: Just like Pin Pon Pan, no materials are needed to play this drinking game. If you want a list of statements you may use in this drinking game, check this link out. You may opt to download a Google Play app, too! The free “Most Likely To” app contains questions for your Image Game.
6. The Osama Game

“Osama” is a Japanese term which means “king”. If you wanna own the throne and play this game, all you’ll need are sets of chopsticks.
First, label all chopsticks according to the number of players. Then, one stick will be labelled “Osama”, and whoever picks this Osama-labelled stick becomes the king of the round. He then has the power to create dares and hilarious antics for everyone in the group!
The “Osama” of the round can come up with wholesome dares, but who knows, he may also give out extreme instructions! Once the command is done, all players should place their chopsticks back and redraw.
The “Osama” game is definitely a unique and blithesome way to enjoy your night with your friend. No wonder it deserves to be part of our list of the best drinking games to try in Singapore!
What you need: Chopsticks and a marker
