Distract yourself from the terror outside with these terrifying Pandemic Movie Drinking Games

There is a very literal pandemic sweeping the globe. You’re cut off from your co-workers, your friends, your family, and maybe even your partner. Your government is mandating that you stay inside, lest you add your name to the hundreds of thousands of infected, or infect someone yourself.

In these scary times, some turn to lighthearted content while other fear-loving adrenaline junkies dig right into movies that are eerily similar to our current situation. If you fall into the latter category, we’ve got the perfect collection of drinking games to fill your lonely days and nights of isolation.

Our list of Pandemic Movie Drinking Games will help you pass the time with characters straight out of our possible future.  

What’s a better reminder of how tenuous our hold is on civilized society than a good old zombie movie? Or dig into films like 12 Monkeys and Light of My Life to examine just how bad our current pandemic could get. And don’t worry, we’ve got a Contagion Drinking Game for all you sick, twisted masochists out there.

Sit back with your favourite drink (or whatever you can scrounge up without going out) and stay inside in front of the television like your life depends on it. (Because it kinda sorta does.)

And hey, it’s not like you’ve got to go into work tomorrow.
