It’s coming up to that time of year again when me and my mates get involved with this.
- 16 players
- Races of 4 (group stage then knockouts)
- Have to down a stubby beer between the start and end of the race
- No driving whilst drinking
That’s the basics. Then we have optional rules which have come in and out, last year being:
- Die is rolled before the race. 1-4 means that number player also drinks a shot, 5 is double beer for everyone, 6 is nothing.
We’re trying to mix it up a bit this year. Firstly, beer makes me really bloated, really quick, so I’m looking for an alternative drink that keeps things fair (alcohol-wise and volume-wise). I also had this idea: anyone using a blue shell has to drink an extra shot after the race (one shot per shell if more than one).
Anyone got any other ideas? We’re at a bit of a loss. Frankly, it’s good anyway, but it could surely be better…
I know, I know, pretty mature stuff. But it is probably the best night of the year. We do it at my friend’s house, and she has 4 of every kind of Wii controller so everyone has their pick, plus a 60" telly. Everyone brings food, it’s brilliant.
