A question - Because I've just got to know.
« on: August 25, 2005, 08:27:15 PM »
I'd like to think it was because the member's of PPG have vast amounts of life experience, keen intellects and razor sharp repartee. PPG members have an intuitive, almost spiritual grasp of the complex moral and ethical issues that beset the modern world, and recognise that intelligent, articulate debate will bring about a renaissance of thought that will uplift and enlighten the planet as a whole.
But G3 members can drink us under the table.
I assure you that the PPG could easily outdrink the G3.
That depends on who Andyr is drinking for.  :D

Because I've just got to know.
But I have a left shoulder-blade that is a miracle of loveliness.  People come miles to see it.

Not really a fair question because we'd have to split Andyr between PPG and G3, so Spellhold Studios would probably win by default.  ;D

 Members who share dual (PPG & G3) citizenships would not be allowed to participate in the drink off. Andyr would be out of the competition. :pirate

But aren't we *all* dual members???

 G3 -    682 members

 PPG - 1449  members.

 Apparently not. The heaviest known drinkers do hold dual memberships and would be  :-ban from competition.

Them's fighting words. That can be said by an awful lot of us.

Not only do we have bulk drinkers, we have quality drinkers like RevRatBastard and Xiao. We so would win.

Okay, So we need to establish some rules. Here they are.

1. In the intererest of fairness, the competition will consist of equals numbers drawn from each community.
2. As most competitors hold multiple memberships, Competitors must nominate which forum they will drink for.

(If we remove all multiple members from the mix the competion would end up consisting of 6 members who only registered because they couldn't find the orb of Koozbane and wanted a spoiler)

Let the games begin!

Utterly rejected. Getting drunk is for singing, friendship and sex and not for tribalism and division. Apart from that there have to be at least 15 rules to have a decent drinking game!

Dear Jester,

I seek not to forment tribalism and division, I only wished to a begin a good natured contest and establish a thread whereby all can boast about their capacity to imbibe. (Many posters in these fine fora seem to find their alcohol comsumption relevant to just about any subject under discussion, I just thought "Hey, let's have a thread where alcohol consumption is the subject under discussion!")

Whilst drinking is an excellent opportunity for singing and friendship, I think the wisdom that comes with age draws me to the conclusion that Sex and drinking are seldom a good combination. If I ruled the world all Alcoholic Beverages would carry the warning - People seen through the bottom of this glass appear more Attractive and Interesting than they actually are!

Lastly, I agree. Drinking competitions should have at least 15 rules. I'm open for suggestions. I would however point out the best drinking competition rules are created during the competition itself, leading of course to highly creative rules, open to all manner interpretation and resulting in the fact that ultimately there are no losers, because we all will believe we won.

However some sort of quiz would be helpful, it could similiar to a beauty contest; looks while drinking, knowledge, capacity, how they would save the world while drunk, etc.

Which brings us to...
Rule 3: At the end of each round, one competitor from each forum will be nominated to take part in the "skill" portion of the competition. A "skill" will be drawn randomly from a hat. Skills may include - telling a joke, swimsuit modeling, general knowledge, ability to open a chip packet without spilling it's contents all over the table, walking in a straight line, suggestions for bringing about world peace...etc,etc. In the event of a tie, the winner of the round will be determined by either Karaoke or tequila shots.

Who drinks the best beer should be a seperate event: it will take a longer time to decide that outcome as there will be more debate involved.

30 000 points will be awarded to the person who drinks the best beer. The "best" beer will be decided by a 2/3 majority of concious competitors. Beers will only be recognised if the competitor nominating the beer is able to pronounce the name of said beer.
