If you are not of the legal drinking age in your country, please remember to play this game with lemonade or your favorite non-alcoholic beverage. May the Force be with you!!!
To play the Star Wars Drinking game, you will need:
1.The Star Wars Trilogy on tape (one movie for a short game). The Special Edition is optional but not necessary.
2.An ample supply of your favorite beverage (milk, right?)
3.A really good sound system, so the explosions seem to happen all around you. Kapow! (optional)
4. Plenty of cushions, bean bag chairs, etc. to collapse on afterwards.
Begin by inserting your weatherbeaten "Star Wars" videotape into the big slot on your VCR. Dim the lights for dramatic effect, and play the tape. The game begins right as "20th Century Fox" appears on the screen. Once the game has begun, you watch the movie for the listed events.

The game ends when a bunch of Ewoks start dancing. No matter what you've been drinking, you will remember this image. The last person to give up drinking on each cue is the winner. Of course, ties are possible. If at some point you find that no one can successfully operate the VCR anymore, the game may as well be abandoned.
And especially for those non-drinkers, there is:

The rules are basically the same as the other game but the drinking cues are different.
