Looking for a new, fun way to drink with your friends? Well, how about we get a little classy and retro and break out that Nintendo 64 that's been sitting in your closet for years.

The Nintendo 64 is a classic game system that has been loved by people all over the world for over 15 years. And of course, you cannot imagine the Nintendo game systems without the beloved Mario games. Mario games are the backbone to Nintendo gaming systems and are one of the most established game franchises in video game history. With that being said, I'm sure we have all heard of Mario Kart. Yes, it's fun to play with your friends after school or on those boring weekday nights, but what about on those weekend college nights where you have to stay in but have a ton of beer and friends?

Mario Kart and drinking typically do not go hand in hand. It's not an easy game, and it's defintely not as easy when playing while drinking. It creates havoc on the race tracks, deafening laughter, and a ton of fun. So, what exactly do you need and how to do you play this drinking game? Well, to start, you need the obvious: beer, friends, and a setup for your Mario Kart gaming experience (television, Nintendo 64, Mario Kart, and a nice sounds system even adds to the effect). Once you have these, prepare yourself; you're in for the time of your life.

The game is called Don't Drink and Drive. So, you guessed it; you can't drink and drive. At the beginning of each race, each person starts with a given amount of beer (anywhere from half a beer to a full beer works well). The only rule: you cannot hold the controller and drink your beer at the same time, thus, don't drink and drive. You must finish off your drink by the end of race; if not, you automatically lose! So, different strategies should be implemented into your gameplay. Some may want to chug it at the beginning of the race, while others like to space out their drinking; as long as that beer is gone by the end of the race.

So, you can make this the entirity of your game, or, you can add incentives for the winner, which is typically what my friends do. The first place person can make a house rule that will be applied for the rest of the night. For example, here are a couple rules that my friends and I have come up with:

- The winner takes the phone of the person who finished last and texts anyone on their phone anything and everything that the winner wants.

- The loser has to wear all of the empty beer cans. So, if you lose multiple times, you mave have a lot of beer cans on your person before the night is over.

- Loser is made the "beer bitch" for the next set of race. This task includes serving beer and waiting on the other people present.

These are just some examples! Be creative and come up with some of your own!

While this is a very fun and entertaining drinking game, the same rule applies to any drinking occasion. Be careful and drink responsibly.
