X-Files (2)

Game Type: 
Boot Factor: 

To play the X-Files Drinking Game, you will need:

  • A video tape of collected X-Files episodes (or any Friday night for a short game).
  • An ample supply of your favorite beverage (preferably Jolt Cola, Mountain Dew, or any drink with plenty of caffine to get you wired. If you're over twenty-one, go ahead and break out the Boston Loggers!)
  • A really good sound system, so that Mulder and Scully seem to be right in the room with you and the action is all around you. (optional)

Begin by inserting your favorite X-Files archives tape into the VCR. Play the tape. Dim the lights for dramatic effect if you haven't already. The game begins when the Fox insignia appears. Basically, every time one of the listed events occurs, everyone takes a sip of their drink. If you are using alcoholic beverages, I really don't recommend emptying a whole glass, lest you lose consciousness.


Drink whenever:

  • Something is not what it seems.
  • Someone cannot be trusted.
  • Someone lies.
  • Mulder comes up with an off-the-wall theory to explain some event.
