Happy Election Day! Nothing like a well-crafted drinking game to get you in the patriotic spirit, right?
Disclaimer: We are in no way intending to downplay the importance of the election or exercising your right to vote, we just think everyone is a little wound up with all the politics talk going on and we want to insert some fun into it. Just a fun little reminder not to take life too seriously 😉
Over at DebateDrinking.com, they created a drinking game for Election Night…and to me, it sounds like a great way to spend this otherwise hectic and stressful evening. So grab a skinny cocktail and play along!
Here’s how to play:
Whether you get your results from CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, C-SPAN or one of the broadcast networks, take a drink* every time someone on screen says anything on the following list:
- Ground Game
- Photo ID
- Youth Vote
- The Name of a Third Party Candidate (Gary Johnson, Jill Stein,Virgil Goode, Rocky Anderson)
Stock up on your favorite beverages, follow Debate Drinking on Twitter and follow along with their website to drink with other players! They will be drinking to a different network each hour and keeping score on an exclusive, real-time, drink-totaling scoreboard. Or, just play on your own 🙂
7-8 pm – ABC
8-9 pm – NBC
9-10 pm – CNN
10-11pm – Fox News
Drinking starts Tuesday, November 6, at 7:00pm Eastern
*Because this may be a high scoring game, we define a drink as a gulp of beer or sip of wine or liquor. Know your limits and please drink responsibly.
So make yourself an El Presidente and have a little fun with Election Day… And be thankful we don’t have to do this again for 4 more years.
