Slapping is never a good course of action. Unless, of course, you’re playing Slap the Bag, which is by far the easiest drinking game you can play. It can be enjoyed whether you’re young or old, athletic or clumsy. As far as drinking games go, it barely slides into the category of “game,” serving more as a way to drink wine among friends, even if they’re not seasoned wine drinkers.
There’s a good chance you’ve already encountered Slap the Bag. While its origin, like nearly all drinking games, is murky, its prevalence is not. It’s so common that even Fox News has written about it. The piece is called “Interesting Use of Boxed Wine: Slap the Bag.” In the story, the writer notes that it’s “the quintessential college wine drinking game, which translates just fine to grown up parties.” Vivino, a popular wine app, even lists Slap the Bag as a way to “rescue a horrible wine party.” So how do you play? It’s just as simple as it sounds.
