It's Saturday night and I know all of my followers will be going out to have a little bit of fun and some whiskey of course. In the spirit of the weekly holiday I though that I would give you guys a Saturday night special. The special for this week is going to be a couple of drinking games to kill the time. These games were used by me and my friends to either to prepare for a night out or to mess with someone who thought that they were a "heavy drinker" There are two versions of this game with slight variants to each, I will address both in this post. Oh, and there are no official names to these games that I know of. As far as I'm concerned they are original....ish. The first one has probably been done, but just not documented.
First, we have what I like to call the Basketball game. Don't worry you only have to watch basketball, not play it. The game is very simple and can be played with either whiskey, beer, or any other drink, but whiskey makes it the most fun. Obviously I with whiskey, as does my group of friends, but considering you're new, beer will be just fine. To start off with find a basketball game on T.V. or in our case accidentally stumble upon one while channel surfing and drinking whiskey. Second, Choose a team to be on. It was easy for me, considering we always had to watch Knicks games, I just chose the team that wasn't the Knicks. The scoring is simple. Each time the opposite team makes a shot you take a drink of whiskey. If they dunk or make a 3pt shot it's two drinks. Anyone who watches basketball will quickly realize that this adds up to about 40-50 drinks in a game, lower for you if the other guy's team is the Knicks. Seeing as we consider a third to a half a shot of whiskey as a drink this is going to be over 13 shots of whiskey pretty much every time. Unfortunately, the commercial breaks slow things down so we end up drinking during those as well; however, if 13 drinks sounds like a lot to you, then you don't have to do this. Well that's the basketball game, I'm not even sure if it's basketball season, if not I thought I could at least give you this game for future enjoyment.
The next game is really short and easy. It is also only for the strongest of wills. It's known as the baseball game. I will get right to the point with this game, you drink every time they switch camera angles. If you have never watched a baseball game like I haven't, this is a TON of drinking. You will be lucky to make it out of the first inning. If you do, don't make any plans because you will be hammered! That is if you're playing with whiskey, you may be able to make it longer with beer. This isn't so much of a game to play before you go out, but rather a game to end your night. Be careful with this game, I wouldn't suggest playing it if you can't finish the basketball game. Well that's the baseball game, probably the only way to watch baseball without killing yourself from the boredom. I'm sure you can play it tonight seeing as baseball season never seems to end.
I would like to hear any great games that you guys like to play. Post them or the name of them in the comments so I can look them up and give them a try.
