First Friday Drinking Game
May is finally here, with summer just around the corner. The release of Mario Kart Wii last weekend was the excuse we all needed to get to the summertime slackin'--even if we students still have a few finals left. The Mario Kart series has been a foundation of my gaming history since I was in preschool, and aside from the occasional spin-outs, it's only gotten better with age. In celebration of the new release, I've compiled a list of drinking game rules you can use on any Mario Kart game you want to drink to. Sure, drinking and driving is never a good idea, but it's totally worth playing Rainbow Road while you're sloshed.
1 drink for fucking up a shortcut jump
1 drink for attempting Super Mario Kart's Rainbow Road
1 additional drink for each fall on Rainbow Road
1 drink if you try to wrangle up 16 people for a grand prix in Double Dash
2 drinks when (not if) your online opponent signs out early in a race in MK DS
1 drink every time Toad talks with his Country Guy Voice in MK 64
2 drinks for Toad's Cracked-Out Voice in Double Dash
1 drink per collision with a cow/penguin/mole/other assorted animal
1 drink per fall into ice, chocolate, lava, water, or endless pit
2 drinks for accidentally using an item instead when you're trying to hold it behind you
3 drinks each time you trade an awesome item for a crappy green shell
1 drink if your online opponent snakes through and entire course in MK DS
1 drink if you get hit by a blue shell
2 drinks if you get hit by it on a jump
Finish your drink if you decide to play Toad's Turnpike in Extra Mode while drunk--if you're going to "I'm cool to drive" through a course that involves semi trucks hurtling at you, you may as well go all-out
Warning: Excessive drinking during gameplay may result in severely-affected driving skills and an increased likelihood of getting fishooked by Lakitu. Play with caution!
