Pending an evening of the Indiana Jones trilogy and a shitload of drinks, I humbly plagiarise and present:
You’ll need the following:
The Indiana Jones trilogy, preferably on Blu Ray:
A movie playback device, and a humungous TV (surround sound system recommended)
Bunch of friends who aren’t surly drunks
A shitload of alcoholic drinks: beers and wines are preferable to spirits when playing for the whole trilogy, but shots are more fun than sips!
Around six to eight hours to watch the whole trilogy with munchie/loo breaks inbetween the movies, and a quiet day afterwards to get rid of the mandatory sair heed.
Optional items include fedoras, whips, revolvers, bandages, Nazi scientists and John Williams conducting the London Symphony Orchestra.
(For the purposes of this exercise, the abomination that is Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull does not exist, however if you wish to watch it, feel free to drink as much as possible while doing so to numb any eventual sustained disappoinment)
Simple: watch Raiders of the Lost Ark, then Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, and finally Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Everyone participating must take a drink of their beverage every time one of the Drinking Cues listed below occurs as part of the movie. Feel free to improvise new Cues as the movies progress; if the group agrees on it, take a drink!
For a shorter game with less involuntary regurgitation of your drink(s), just watch one movie — Raiders is the recommendation here. You may also wish to keep someone sober to manage the game, watch for Cues and make sure contestants drink when they’re supposed to; they aren’t eligible to win, but they can join in with soft drinks if they like. Designated drivers are good for this purpose.
As always when drinking: be smart, have some food while drinking to help bulk out the booze, stop when you’re drunk, and do not drive or operate heavy machinery during or after play! Drink plenty of fluids before and after drinking to prevent dehydration and thus a nasty hangover.
The last person capable of controlling the Blu Ray player by the end of The Last Crusade is the winner.
Common Drinking Cues
