The Star Wars Drinking Game

To play the Star Wars Drinking game, you will need:

<-> The Star Wars Trilogy on tape (one movie for a short game)

<-> An ample supply of your favorite beverage (milk, right?)

<-> A really good sound system, so the explosions seem to happen all around you. Kapow! (optional) Begin by inserting your weather beaten "Star Wars" videotape into the big slot on your VCR. Dim the lights for dramatic effect, and play the tape. The game begins right as "20th Century Fox" appears on the screen.

<-> Some ship crashes into something after being hit.

The game ends when a bunch of Ewoks start dancing. No matter what you've been drinking, you will remember this image. The last person to give up drinking on each cue is the winner. Of course, ties are possible.

If at some point you find that no one can successfully operate the VCR anymore, the game may as well be abandoned.
