A New Hope

Welcome to the Dark Side–we’ve got all the good beer. (Which we most definitely did probably not steal from someone’s fridge.) The room’s about to start spinning more than Darth Vader’s ship at the end of the Death Star battle [Spoiler Alert].

Drinking Rules for A New Hope

Take a Sip Whenever…

A Stormtrooper dies*

Grand Moff Tarkin rolls his “R”s for an unnecessary amount of time

Characters use their headsets to communicate (includes helmet coms)

Take a Drink Whenever…

Someone mentions the “plans”

A Stormtrooper fails at a basic, common sense task during a battle, guard duty, a search, or interrogation

Vader senses something through the Force

Someone makes derisive comments about the Force

Someone boasts about how awesome the Death Star is


Finish Your Drink Whenever…

A Stormtrooper actually succeeds at a task (onscreen or mentioned/implied)


Drinking Rules For the Whole Trilogy

Take a Sip Whenever…

Stormtroopers manage to not hit something right in front of them

There’s an explosion in space

Someone mentions  “the Force”

There’s an old-fashioned screen wipe


Take a Drink Whenever

Someone loses a body part (includes droids)

Someone mentions “destiny”

There’s a shot of a pilot going down in flames as his cockpit crumples around him

Someone is inexplicably racist against Chewie (this includes line of dialogue, insults, random petting, etc.)

It seems likely that R2-D2 is saying something obscene/derogatory

Stormtroopers are gamely trying to run in that armor


Finish Your Drink Whenever…

Someone chokes someone else (this is not limited to Darth Vader)

Someone mispronounces a name (drink twice if the character whose name is mispronounced is in the scene and doesn’t bat an eye).

The Millennium Falcon‘s lightspeed doesn’t work

You hear the Wilhelm Scream

A Stormtrooper hits whatever he’s shooting at



*Under no circumstances should you apply a guesstimate of loss-of-life aboard the Death Star. You will literally drown in alcohol.
