"Ancient Aliens" Drinking Game

Updated on January 30, 2013

Aliens Among Us?

One of my favorite tv shows is the History Channel's "Ancient Aliens". I don't really think there are aliens(I hope not!) , but I do know some people who look like aliens, though. Angelina Jolie. An alien. Larry King. Possibly an alien. From a very scary planet.

What I really like about it is seeing each week what new spin they will put on this whole theory. I mean, we are now in the fifth season of this show. It must be winding down as it becomes less compelling. One crazy story feature "Aliens and Big Foot". The weakest show was the one with Leonardo Da Vinci. Da Vinci goes in a cave once and then at another time, disappeared for around two years. With these facts, the alien theorists are certain he received some alien knowledge since he is so skilled at everything.

On the other hand, I have learned about some compelling places in the world that can't be explained. One of the spookiest shows for me was the one about forbidden places, usually a mountain with strange occurrences. I couldn't sleep after viewing the photos of the Russians that went on a mountain excursion! Pumu Pukuu was an interesting place I didn't know about; I cannot explain the precision cuts of the laser-like edge of the stone there. I myself have been to Greece and have seen how statues of the demigods are portrayed as larger than humans and wondered....

But in general,it is such a silly show, it is perfect to have a drinking game while watching it. Be careful, it's an hour long show.

Books by Those On The Show

"As ancient alien theorists believe..."

I have noticed that the narrator says several phrases quite often, in fact, enough to where you could have a drinking game while watching the show. Presently, the show is on Friday night; perfect to stay home and watch George's hair. It's simple, really. All you have to do is listen for the phrase, "As ancient astronaut theorists believe...." , "As ancient alien theorists speculate....", and so on through the thesaurus for action verbs. The most repeated phrase is the first one.


The Hair That Attacked

George Tsoukalos speaks persuasively and engagingly often on the show, but I just can't stop looking at his hair. Usually it is standing on end (the photo is fairly tame). He loves to say, " It must be aliens." or "It can only be aliens." There are even internet memes for this.

There are some other characters on the show. One favorite is the Italian scientist and her funny accent: "There are som-ah characters-ah on the-ah show-ah." Oh, yes, you will drink to that so pay attention! David Childress has quite an accent too. I would love to go on that show and pretend to be a Southern Belle archaeologist! Haha! Southerners MUST be descended from the aliens. But how to explain the majority who look like they are out of "Deliverance"? Hmmm.... just gloss over it and don't talk about it. That works for all the video on elongated skulls. Never mind that mothers deformed their own baby's skulls. Just keep showing videos of Suzanne Sugarbaker from "Designing Women" over and over.

How to Play

We are looking for verbage here; hence the verbs in all caps.

As ancient alien theorists BELIEVE: Take One Sip

As ancient alien theorists CONTEND: Take One Sip

As ancient alien theorists SPECULATE: Take Three Sips

How did they build, draw, plan this? It can only be aliens (George Tsoukalos): Drink the whole drink.

The Italian Scientist lady- Take a sip for every extra vowel- ah that she adds to words.

December 21st, 2012- Mayans' calendar ends. Party like it's 1999. Drink three drinks.

      I love the show and I'm actually pretty open-minded. I just have noticed some pretty funny things about some of the theorists on the show. Glad you came by the hub, Theorymaster.

      Wow, you think there are no aliens...hahahah Definition of alien is not from earth. Maybe you should watch this before you decide that totally insane thought humans are the only intelligent life form in 16 billion year life span of our universe.

      Thanks LGrey! I love it myself. Certainly don't use real alcohol in this game, maybe just tea, or sweet tea where I am from. They say it so much one would get pretty toasted!

      Haha! Great Hub. Ancient Aliens is one of my favorite shows. My favorite line ever on the show is "I don't think Atlantis sank. I think Atlantis lifted off" You have to love those ancient alien theorists :)

      Thanks, pshields. I completely agree; I love that they state that they are theories, as they should. I like that they are looking into and comparing so many "mainstream" ideas that are accepted as fact, but are not necessarily real facts, merely theories as you have said. Sadly, sometimes these theories, like evolution, can become religions for people in that they are not able to see beyond what they believe. I loved last week's "Dinosaurs" because evolution theory just has never cut it for me. "Ancient Aliens" has had some compelling evidence, for sure. But you have to admit that George could use a stylist, right? ( :

      At least the show remains truthful and states things as being theories or beliefs.For me the worst programs are the ones that paint theories as fact ,and when it comes to our history the mainstream shouldn't be so fast to call an alternative theory anything but a theory.If you want another drinking game, research unexplained artifacts and have a drink for every one which has mysteriously vanished, as soon as it gets into the hands of the sceptics.I love the show,and unfortunately have to admit some of the theories would make great fiction,but some of the evidence brought forward is ever so convieniently ignored,surely science is about discovering the truth, and not just proving out of date theories and that is what i think is the real message of the show.
