Drinking Game, as RPG

Drinking Game, as RPG

Postby kylie_koyote » 13 Mar 2014, 16:18

Moving this over here at SA's suggestion. Sit down with your favorite beverage (lemonade or otherwise) and a Biggles book. Take a drink (a sip, not a gulp) any time any of the below things occur. I'll get us started with a few. Please add your own.

Take a Drink Any Time:

Biggles says "Well, here we are."

A female character has lines.

Biggles threatens to clip Ginger on the ear.

EVS appears. Take two drinks if he's a good guy.

SA takes two drinks (not of home brew)… :lol:

Marie, worried about the possible consequences, leans over to EVS and swaps malted milk for the home brew.

Take a drink any time malted milk is mentioned. Two if you get a brand name (Horlicks, anyone?).

Ginger leaned over and with a swift move removed the malted milk from EVS' outstretched hand. "Is it Horlicks or is it Ovaltine?" he asked.

Wait what? SA, I think we're both confused here. I was thinking of a list of things that actually happen so that while reading one would stop to take a sip. Much like the "Star trek" drinking game: whenever someone appear out of uniform, drink.

What game are you playing?

I am similarly confused - only not in any organized kind of way, because I don't get this at all... :nono: I think you two have got the wrong end of each others' sticks, and I don't know which one to hold on to at all, so some-one please explain the correct way to play... :roll:
All the same, I think the game is a good idea, KK - once I understand it :D

I thought you wanted us to make things up in the traditional RPG :lol: way

if you meant it to be serious - I don't really understand to be honest. I don't usually drink while reading my Biggles books for a start - some of them cost too much to risk spilling anything on them. Neither do I want to sit reading with some list by my side!!!! I like Star Trek but haven't heard of its drinking game. i can see it might work if you are watching TV or a video but not when you are reading a book. Or am I still hopelessly confused…

Anyway - it could make an RPG :) At least an RPG is easy to understand :roll:

And… if you are just meant to remember all the things in the list every time you read a Biggles book and take a sip if they occur, what happens to your drink if none of them occur - or worse if the list gets so long they occur several times on every page... :twisted:

Or am I still missing the point. I think I give up :cryblue:

In "Frasier" (one of my favourites) they watch "Antiques Road Show" and have a drink every time "veneer" is mentioned

So sorry to have confused everyone. :oops: :? I didn't mean that you should actually drink while reading, unless of course you really want to.

I wanted a list of things that actually occur, but not that occur so often that we'd all be roaring drunk by the end of the first chapter. (Therefore, something like "take a drink every time Biggles smokes a cigarette" would be too frequently, but something like "take a drink every time Roy appears" would not.)

I guess it's easier to play with a TV show or a film... we often play during political speeches to make them more interesting. (i.e., take a drink anytime the speaker says "fiscal responsibility".) Alternatively, you can make a "Bingo" card with different buzz-words on it and the first person to complete a column or a row wins.

Take a drink every time Roy appears would lead to unaccustomed sobriety unless I only read a couple of the books.

Easy, like the sound of this game!

Everyone has to down a shot every time:

Biggles acts like a complete know-all / boffin telling us loads about a really obscure subject

Biggles complains bitterly to the air commodore about his latest mission but is secretly glad he isn't stuck behind a desk any more

Von Stalhein escapes, even when every other member of the gang is captured

Biggles acts on an incredibly tiny clue/is very lucky with coincidentally meeting someone who solves the entire mystery for him in a moment

Biggles gives a really heartening speech about how he will never stoop to the levels of the baddies

Everyone down two shots for every time:

Anytime anyone tells Bertie to stop messing around/they don't think much of his idea

Ginger gets lost

Biggles thinks the aircraft won't make it off the runway...but it does


I think this is a great game, thanks kylie_koyote, I'd have thought playing it by the rules of the drinking game 'never have I ever' would be better though!

I went to the front desk and said, "I’d like my Van Gogh back now, please."

You're right, he does that rather frequently.

Every time one of "our boys" uses a parachute.

Not quite :) Biggles uses a parachute to escape from the balloon he is in (escaping across the lines) when Mahoney shoots at it and sets it on fire.

We don't have 'snipes' in Australia, yet I am thinking it is some kind of hunted 'pheasant-type' bird?

Correct - it is a wading bird but used to be shot - not sure if they still do. There are certainly a lot of shot water birds on sale in one big local farmers market here.
