Games to be played along with the watching of television shows.

TV Characters

Game Type: 
Boot Factor: 

Originally named the "Love Boat Drinking Game." Very fun, with a high buzz factor. Supplies: people, beer, and a tv show with enough different characters for each player.

Before the show starts, each player chooses what character s/he will play. For example, if watching the "Love Boat," someone will play the Captain Stuebing, one will play Gopher, another the Doctor, another Isaac, and even someone will be the Pacific Princess.

Here's one a friend an I made up the other night. While watching a late night talk show, drink whenever the audience as a whole reacts (laughs, cheers, boos). When one person shouts something out, chug your beer. During commercials, drink whenever an ad for a TV show or movie is shown. Chug your beer if it's a beer commercial. This also works with shots. Drinks are worth one shot. Chugs are worth 3. Make more rules up if you think you're not drinking enough.

Who said "You have to be drunk to enjoy Shortland Street"? Well whoever did was wrong, you don't, it just seems more like reality...
Try this: instead of watching Shortie Street every night, video each episode for a week onto a three hour tape. Then on Saturday night bring round all your mates, (and a keg or two) and push 'play'

S*M*A*S*H

Game Type: 
Boot Factor: 

A very very very fun game. Very high buzz factor. Supplies: people, beer, and episodes of MASH, the television show.

Simple rules: watch the show, any time a rank is said, drink. (ie. corporal, private, major, etc).

Frontline

Game Type: 
Boot Factor: 

For those who don't know, Frontline is a satirical take-off of real current affairs shows (particularly in Australia), so accurate that it reportedly helped in the demise of a real show on another network. It is now into it's second series and is screened on Monday nights on the ABC at 8:00 pm. It has also now started screening in the U.S.A. as "Behind the Frontline" on Comedy Central.

Subject: chug games

I have a good idea for a chug game. My friend brought it to my attention during the Olympics, but it can be used for almost any competition sport or awards show (ie: Oscars). It's called 'SHOTS'. What happens is every time someone screws up (ie: falls while skating), thanks God or their mother, and anything else equally stupid/ funny, everyone takes a shot of liqueur (tequila).

SCUD Attack (historical)

Game Type: 
Boot Factor: 

This reached me by email, after several forwardings. Earliest From is TLE::DIEWALD (at DEC?) and early subject line was "Making the rounds at Dupont..."

The order of channel-hopping is NBC, ABC, CBS, and CNN. At each commercial, unless otherwise indicated by further rules, the channel is changed.

If you hear someone on TV say "scud," take a swig of beer and change the channel except during scud attacks (see below).
