TV and Movie Drinking Games
Starting a Drinking Game
Like TV and movies? Like to drink? Like to do both at the same time? You're not alone. Creating engaging drinking games is pretty simple once you get familiar with the very essence of a TV show or a movie. There are small constants that are threaded throughout them to create a cohesive experience. What better way to celebrate them than to drink when you see them?
The X-Files Drinking Game
The X-Files is the perfect vehicle for a drinking game. So many things occur regularly enough to make them familiar without making them happen so often that it's like an episode of Scooby Doo. When you watch The X-Files, drink every time:
The time and location are displayed at the bottom of the screen
Scully drops something and has to scramble to find it
The Lone Gunmen appear
The agents flash their IDs
A monster battles Mulder while Scully is conveniently in another room/closet/on the phone
Scully does an autopsy
Star Wars Drinking Game
There are a number of ways to approach a Star Wars drinking game. The way to begin, however, is to divide the series into the first one, episodes IV through VI and the second three, I through III. The stark difference between them makes one game hard to apply to all six.
In episodes IV - VI, drink every time:
You see a lightsaber being taken out of a box/holster/from nowhere
Someone say something that can be contstrued as sexual. As a non-sexual series, this is where the real creativity comes in. Yes, I have taken a drink to the phrase, "Put that thing away or you'll get us all killed!"
In episodes I - III, drink every time:
Amadala is wearing a different, weird costume
Someone lights up a lightsaber
Lord of the Ring Drinking Game
For Lord of the Rings fans, there's nothing better than a beer and a night of the rings. Here's how to get into the spirit a little better. Drink every time:
A hobbit's feet is prominently shown
The ring changes hands
Gandalf gets all misty-eyed
People walk for more than 10 minutes straight
Back to the Future Drinking Game
This one can be applied to any of the three movies in the Back to the Future franchise. Drink every time you see:
Doc Brown get mad at Marty for doing something stupid
Marty hanging off the side of a vehicle
Marty say "This is heavy"
Marty yell "Doc!"
A McFly get banned from a diner or bar
A Drinking Game for the Real Housewives of Anywhere
Ok, so I'm a closet Real Housewives fan. Sue me. Those angry witches are a great night's entertainment. You know they're tanked, so there's no reason not to join them. Drink every time:
One of them wears a flowy gown with a large jewel on the front
You see a man with an inappropriately large necklace
One of the housewives calls another one a "witch", a fake, a discountess or a "ho-a"
A housewife goes on a cheesy shopping spree for tacky and revolting items
The Big Bang Theory Drinking Game
The Big Bang Theory comes on at the perfect time to start having a couple of drinks. Here's how to make it interesting. Drink every time:
Sheldon knocks on Penny's door
They eat Thai food
Someone says a mathematical formula
They go to the comic book store
Wil Wheaton appears
Harry Potter Drinking Game
If anything calls for a drink, it's a Harry Potter movie. Hey, I like them, but they're long and predictable and if there are drinks around, it's a great combination. Drink every time:
Malfoy pushes, shoves or insults one of Harry Potter's posse
The rules are bent for the threesome so that they don't get into trouble
Dumbledore gives Harry a knowing look
The crew learns a new spell
Hermione complains that they haven't read Hogwarts: A History
