Fuck the Dealer

By: The Rulemaster

Fuck the Dealer is a fun card game normally for kickback parties. This drinking game is played with between 3 to 8 people and is a good way to get everyone involved at the party.

What You Need

  • Deck of Playing Cards
  • Table or Coffee Table
  • Beer

Setting Up

Everyone need to sit in a circle around a table with a drink in front of them. Someone deals out a card to everyone and the person with the lowest card (Aces High/2’s Low) starts as the dealer. The dealer then collects all of the cards and shuffles them.


To start the game the dealer asks the person to their left what is the card on top of the deck. The dealer then checks to see if the guess was right. If the guess was right then the dealer has to take 10 drinks from their beer. If the first guess was wrong then the dealer tells the person guessing if the card is “Higher” or “Lower” than their guess.

The player guessing then gets to guess again. If the person now guesses the correct card then the dealer has to take 5 drinks from their beer. If the second guess was also wrong then the person guessing has to drink as many drinks as the difference between their guess and the real value of the card. For example if on the second guess the person guessed a “4” and the real card is an “8”, then they must take 4 drinks. Take the real card and place it on the table. After a few rounds you will be able to see what cards have already been used and it will help you in guessing.

Game play then continues around the circle clockwise. If three consecutive players to not guess the right card then the person who is the dealer moves to the next person on the left of the dealer. The game plays until there are no more cards left in the deck.


Start your first guess near the center of the deck. Good numbers to start guessing on are “6”, “7” & “8”. This will give you a better shot at getting the card on the second guess since once the dealer says “Higher” or “Lower” you know the card will be one of the remaining numbers.

Another helpful hint is to always pay attention to what cards have already been called. If there are 3 “7’s” sitting on the table but no “6’s” then start your first guess with “6” not “7” because probability is against the chance that it will be that “7” instead of a “6”.
