So you’ve reached the latter half of a wild night out and realized all your friends are gone. You start thinking, well, maybe they tapped out early. Maybe they never came at all. Maybe they never really existed (twist!). Whatever the case, the night is young and you still have enough energy in the tank to play a drinking game. We’re not one’s to judge. We’re here to help. Here are six drinking games you can play all by your lonesome and still have fun.
Solo Power Hour
You know how it works: Take a shot of beer on the minute for an hour. No friends needed. If you start feeling the need for some company, just flip on the TV. Those characters are better pals than your real buds, anyway.
Quarters for One
Grab a drink and an empty shot glass, fish a quarter out from under the couch cushions, and get to flipping.

Never Have I Ever With Facebook
You’re probably already scrolling through Facebook, experiencing serious FOMO while cursing your “friends” and their “album-worthy experiences,” so you might as well have a few drinks while you’re doing it. Every time you come across a friend doing something you’ve never done—getting engaged, having a baby, visiting Chicago—take a swig of beer. See? Who needs to be with friends to have fun?
