Sevens Drinking Game – What is it and What are the Rules?

Sevens, A.K.A. ‘7s’, is the perfect drinking game to play with a large group of people. Make sure you know your multiplication tables! Here’s how to play Sevens: the Drinking Game.

Sevens Drinking Game – What is it and What are the Rules?

Sevens, also known as “7s” or “Seven’s”, is a vocal drinking game that is best played with a group of 4-5 or more players, but can be played with 2 or 3 players, but the more the better. If you’re looking for a fun, high energy drinking game, 7s is a great game to play at any get together (where everyone is of legal drinking age, that is.)


Drink Responsibly!

Hold your hops! Before we get into the rules of Sevens (7s), we want to disclose that we do not promote binge drinking and advise our fellow beer geeks to always drink responsibly! For more information, click here to learn how to be a responsible drinker.


How to Play the Sevens Drinking Game


What You’ll Need To Play 7s:

  • Beer (or your drink of choice)
  • Friends who know how to count


Sevens Gameplay:

This game is all about counting– so make sure everyone in your group knows how to do so! The first person starts off the counting by saying “one,” then onto the next player who says “two,” the third player says, “three” and well, you get the idea. The point of the game is to not say a number that contains a seven, (7, 17, 27, 37, 47, 57, 67, 77… and so on.) or, if you know your times tables, is a multiple of seven (14, 21, 28, 35, 47, 49).

What happens if you say a number with seven or a multiple of seven?

Well, if you say a number that contains 7, you take a sip of your drink. If you say a multiple of seven, you chug whatever’s left of your drink. Keep on going and watch the game get harder as the numbers increase (and as your sobriety decreases). We understand, not everyone is a math genius– so if it gets too hard, don’t be afraid to start over.

Added tip: If someone is tipsy and calls out a number that both contains a seven and is a multiple of seven (70, 77) – That player has to take a shot!
