Okay. Not very often will I write about something as technologically geeky as video games. To be perfectly honest, I'm not much of a video game player evident by the fact that every time I play against Pud or The King at any game, I get absolutely slaughtered.
But THIS is different
Wii Sports is by far worth the price of admission if only for the Bowling game. The brain trust that consists of myself and Da Rev have developed a set of drinking rules that apply to the bowling game. I will now entrust you, the public, with this most coveted information.
Rule #1: You must play with your non-dominant hand.
Rule #2: On your first throw, if, for example, you leave 3 pins standing you take 3 drinks or 2 pins, 2 drinks. so on, so forth.
Rule #3: If you leave any pins on your second throw, it's double that in drinks. (ex: leave 2 pins standing = 4 drinks)
Rule #4: If you spare, no drinks will be taken.
Rule #5: If you drop the ball on the approach, you take 1 drink.
Rule #6: If you strike, everyone else playing takes 5 drinks. You MUST scream at them as they drink them to break their spirit. It is required of you.
Rule #7: If you bowl out of turn for someone else's bowler even if by accident, you owe 5 drinks.
Rule #8 (the tenth frame bonus drinks rule): If you make 3 strikes in the 10th frame, each one is worth progressively more. If you make the first strike, everyone else drinks 5. If you make the second strike, they drink 10 more. You make 3, they drink 15 more. There is a total of 30 drinks at stake in the 10th frame. Do NOT forget to humiliate them as they drink them.
Rule #9: Whoever comes in last at the end of the game must walk outside and shotgun a beer. Do not forget the ridicule celebration as they make their way outdoors for the shotgun.
Follow these rules and you too can be a Wii Drinking Champion as I have become.
