Classic Geek Drinking Games


So, I'm back from my holiday hiatus.

Just a quick one this afternoon: Anyone remember the classic Star Trek:TNG drinking game that was popularized ~1991? Back then I was still in college, and although nobody I knew ever even considered playing it (you try to keep track of a several-page list of actions to drink to, while getting drunk and watching a TV show) I have fond memories of reading down the list, chuckling at classic ST:TNG jokes such as:

A new alien has latex on its forehead: 1 drink
A new alien doesn't have latex on its forehead: 2 drinks
Klingon is spoken: 1 drink
English is spoken by Klingons when they are alone and have no reason to speak English: 2 drinks
Data uses a contraction: whole beverage

But, there's my personal favorite, especially because we know it will never happen...

Wesley swallows really hard: 1 drink
Wesley has his life threatened: 2 drinks
Wesley has his life threatened and he dies: Party like it's 1999!
