Drinking Games for Geeks

I have shared this info once before on my other website, but somehow, it seemed relevant to re-share these games to you guys. Check them out, if you want more of these games, click the link and show some love to Today’s Drinker

Lord of the Rings Drinking Game:

Just one film or the whole trilogy?  Your call.  Depends if you have someplace to be the next day.

Below are abridged rules to Today’s Drinker’s very funny, surreal epic drinking (and, often, non-drinking) game.

Our advice: start with Fellowship, see how you get on.  If you’re in it for the long-haul, try the full Trilogy.


Drink Every Time . . .

  • Someone drinks anything.
    • If it’s a Hobbit, drink twice
    • If it’s Gimli, three times.
    • If Gimli belches afterward, drink the whole bottle.
  • Someone eats anything.  If it’s a Hobbit, twice.  If it’s an Orc eating entrails, take a third drink.
  • A Hobbit talks about food.
  • Frodo says “Oh, Sam!”
  • Aragorn and Boromir have an argument.
  • Someone looks all mopey and angst-ridden.  If it’s Frodo, drink again.
  • A Black Rider appears.
  • We see someone’s filthy, chewed-up fingernails.
  • Someone sings a song.
  • You can tell the camera was mounted on a helicopter.
  • Someone draws a sword.
  • Pippin acts like an idiot.
  • Legolas looks fabulous.
  • Frodo’s eyes roll back into his head.
  • Gollum hacks up a “gollum! gollum!”
  • Someone or something is called “precious.”
  • Someone consults a map.
  • You speak along with the dialogue.

Likely Hangover: The morning after will be Mordor

Oh Captain, My Captain (The Year Long Drinking Game)

What you will need:

Here’s the skinny. Get ahold of all the seasons and movies from each of the Star Trek series below. Beg borrow or steal the movies and deep space nine, but everything else should be streaming through netflix (trust me I am nin the middle of this). Grab some scifi loving freinds and keep your fridge or bar stocked to the brim.

Game Description:
This game is as simple as any of the other media/movie drinking games, it is just played on a larger scale. You start by watching all the episodes and movies in Chrinological order, not by release, but by period in time. This would mean, that you wouldn’t start with the original series, you would start with Enterprise, since this happened a few hundred years before the original series. For the full episode list in chronological order, see below or go to The Star Trek Chronology Project.
