Shark Week Drinking Game

The best time of the year has arrived – Shark Week! While were keeping the kids in mind with some fun crafts, us grownups have to have some fun too. Whip up some of these shark cocktails, grab a snack, and get playing!

Shark Week is more than just a series of shark-focused specials on the Discovery Channel – it's a time to celebrate. From attack stories to reenactments to raw footage of sharks on the prowl, we can't get enough. To make the most of this annual special, grab a drink, some friends and play this Shark Week drinking game!

We do making sure you have plenty to drink; you don't want to miss an attack because you were too busy refilling your drink!*


Take 1 drink:

Every time a shark rams into a diver cage.

While ominous music plays over a scene of a shark swimming.

Every time they mention the city that you are in.

When someone gives advice on surviving a shark attack.


Take 2 drinks:

Whenever a shark attack is referred to as a case of "mistaken identity" (i.e. the shark thought the human was actually a seal)

Every time someone speaks with an Australian accent.

Whenever there is a reenactment of a shark attack.

When someone says "this species of shark is normally very peaceful."


Chug for 5 seconds:

Whenever a shark is attacking an animal (non-human).

Every time someone’s credentials are listed.

Every time a shark breaches the water.


Finish your drink if:

A human gets attacked by a shark. 


*This game is intended for people 21 and older. Celebrations does not condone or encourage binge drinking. Please play responsibly!
