Now that the holidays are officially here and everyone is stuffed with Thanksgiving leftovers, I think it's time to come up with some fun games to play while houses are filled to the brim with family and friends and tempers are high and maybe everyone could use a way to relax.
I've decided to go with a Doctor Who drinking game in honor of the fact that this year's Christmas Special will mark the first time I've seen a special as it airs. I am very excited about it!
This game depends entirely on which iteration of the Doctor you'll be watching. I haven't seen the original episodes, so my varieties will include versions for Nine, Ten, and Eleven.
Nine: Anytime the Doctor says "Fantastic"
Ten: Anytime the Doctor says "Allons-y"
Eleven: Anytime the Doctor says a phrase including "Pond"
That's it. That's all you need. Any other qualifiers will get every person too drunk.
This game can be played anytime, not just during the holidays! And soon the stakes will be even higher: you can play the Doctor Who drinking game out of Doctor Who shot glasses. Two new shot glasses will be introduced each month starting January 2013, with a new Doctor each month.
In the meantime, regular shot glasses will do, and you can buy these great Doctor Who coasters to keep your table free of horrifying water rings. I feel like there's a reference in there somewhere, but I'm drawing a blank. Something to do with 'Waters of Mars'... If you think of it then please leave it in the comments!
What will you include in your Doctor Who drinking game?
