JINRO Drinking Games for this holiday season
JINRO soju is already a global trend worldwide, and each country has different ways to enjoy it. Sometimes, it is enjoyed during conversations, alongside a delicious meal. For our last article, we’ve shown different ways to enjoy drinking JINRO soju during the year-end party. In Korea, drinking games are played frequently and captured in K-Dramas and movies. If you want to excite your night, I recommend playing these Korean drinking games with Jinro.
Here are a few Korean drinking games you can try next time you drink JINRO soju with friends.
Titanic or Submarine
Are you familiar with the term Titanic or Submarine? You will need a beer glass and a shot glass for this game. This game is suitable for 4 to 5 people. First, fill the beer glass with beer and gently place the shot glass in the beer glass so it floats. Each person takes turns pouring as much soju as they want into the shot glass. The catch is, whoever makes the shot glass sink, or has to drink the whole glass of alcohol.
Soju bottle cap flick
This drinking game is pretty simple. JINRO soju bottle caps are made with metal, so they’re bendable. Take the JINRO soju cap, twist the loose part until it is straight without breaking it from the capped bottle, and flick it with your finger. You only get one chance per turn and continue to pass the cap around until someone breaks it. Whoever can successfully do so gets to choose people to drink.
High or Low game with JINRO soju bottle cap
After you flick the tail off the cap, you can play a new game with it. I bet most people do not know there’s a number hidden under the soju caps. Whoever flicks the tail of the cap can be the host by telling the other players that the number is between 1- 50. So players can start guessing what number it is. The host will show a thumbs down if the number is higher. If the number is lower, the host will show a thumbs up to indicate whether the number should be higher or lower. The player who eventually calls out the number “36” becomes the loser and has to drink.
3-6-9 Game (Samyukgu Game)
Do you have trouble with math? This drinking game involves numbers. In this game, each player says one number counting up, but you have to clap for each number with the numbers 3, 6, and 9. Whoever messes up must drink. Imagine the numbers 33, 36, or 39. That means you have to clap twice because it has two numbers involving 3, 6, and 9.
Instinct Game (Noonchi Game)
This drinking game is popular among young drinkers yet slightly complicated. Let’s say there are 6 people at the table. The goal of this game is to count consecutively to 6 or the number of people playing the game. Players lose if two people say the same number simultaneously, so two losers must drink, and whoever calls the last number must drink. This game requires you to read body language and see if someone is about to speak.
There are also many other worldwide drinking games you could try with friends and family. There’s the original beer pong, where we can switch the drinks with JINRO soju to excite your night faster. Of course, there’s also Flip Cup, where two opposing groups stand on opposite sides of a table, placing the empty cups upside down on the edge of the surface. Whichever team that flips the cups the fastest wins. Lastly, there’s also the Never Have I Ever game. If you’re not familiar with this game, you use “Never have I ever” as a prefix to a sentence for something you’ve never done, and everyone who has done it has to drink.
