The countdown to St Patrick’s Day, March 17, goes to the telephone. By now, we hope you’ve packed up your green Wardrobe and are in the middle of planning your celebration. If the St.Paddy party is your future, we have some great games for the Adults on St. Patrick’s Day.
By adult party games, we mean games that involve drinking. The tradition of drinking alcohol (either beer or Irish Whiskey) on Patrick Patrick’s Day goes back to the origins of the holiday. According to Learn. Kegerator .com, historically, Christians were allowed to set aside their traditions in Lent on St. Patrick’s Day. Patrick to celebrate the life of the famous Santa. This meant that Christian celebrants could eat meat and milk and drink alcohol on the same day.
As the celebration grew into a cultural holiday rather than a religious one, the Christian tradition of drinking alcoholic beverages became obsolete. So what was once non-Christian in this law became one of the most popular customs associated with St. Patrick’s day – drinking.
It is important to remember that the holiday is not just about alcohol. It’s about celebrating St. Patrick, who brought Christianity to the people of Ireland, and it is about Irish culture. But with that in mind, pour in St. Patrick and the Irish people, and celebrate with friends and family. Drink a few drinks, show off your raw, and play the next few games for St. Patrick’s Day.

3. Hot Potato Drinking St. Patrick’s day Adult Game
For this St. Patrick’s Day game, you’ll need a potato, Irish Whiskey or Guinness, and a shot glass for each participant.
Have your guests fill their shot glasses with their drink of choice and form a circle around one person holding the potato.
Turn on some Irish music and have the center person pass the potato to another player in the circle. The potato should continue to pass from one player to another for as long as the music plays.
Whoever has the potato when the music stops must take their shot and step out of the circle. The game continues until there is only one person left, and that person can claim winner, winner, corned beef dinner.
4. Gold Coin Toss St. Patrick’s day Adult Game
Head to the dollar store and pick up a few packages of those gold foil-wrapped chocolate coins. While you’re there, buy two or more leprechaun hats or, even better, cauldrons. At home, set the hats or cauldrons up a few yards apart from each other in the front lawn.
Divide your guests into two teams and have them try to toss coins into the other team’s hat or cauldron. If the coins are different sizes, each coin can be worth different points. Alternatively, you can set up several cauldrons or hats with each one being worth a different amount of points.
The more “cheer” consumed, the harder the toss will get.
5. Pin the Hat on the Leprechaun St. Patrick’s day Game
Here’s how to turn the classic kids game of “Pin the Tail on the Donkey” into an adult-friendly St. Patrick’s Day activity. First, draw your own hat-less leprechaun on a large piece of poster board. You can also have one printed out at your local copy center. Then draw or print out a hat for your little guy, cut it out, and attach some sticky tape or putty on the back.
Have your guests attempt to stick the hat on the leprechaun while blindfolded. And if they miss, they have to take a shot. No peeking, people!
