where’s that bottle of scotch?

A veritable pile of book-related drinking games on this forum thread here. I especially like “The Secondhand Mass Market Horror Paperback drinking game.” And I thought the query-letter drinking game I’ve been developing was enough. Though I might like to see a fantasy cliche drinking game or something. You know….

Drink when….

….the farmboy discovers he’s the secret child of the last high king.
….the name of the fantasy setting is unpronounceable using human vocal cords and impossible to spell
….[insert favorite, or least favorite, fantasy cliche here]

Yeah, yeah….ways to amuse one’s self on a Friday night while avoiding reading manuscripts. Heh.
