Fire Square

Learn how to play the drinking card game, Firesquare, with easy to follow instructions and video!


– One standard deck of 52 cards

– Plenty of beverage



One player must volunteer themselves to become the dealer, who will deal 4 cards to each player and then deals 25 cards face down on the table in front of them in a 5 x 5 square, as shown below.

Beginning with the row of cards furthest away from the dealer, the cards are flipped over one at a time. If a player is able to match a card in their hand with a card which has been turned over, they are able to designate somebody to drink. The quantity which the chosen player is required to drink alters depending on where the turned over card is in the square:

• A card in the top row furthest from the dealer is worth one finger.

• A card in the second row from the top signifies two fingers.

• A card in the third row from the top signifies three fingers, and so on.

Once all the cards have been turned over, just re-deal the cards and start again!
