This week the Gears of War franchise returns with its third instalment. While I have never been very good at the multiplayer when taken online, it has been a regular feature of my gaming nights since first game.
That said, I have never sat down and thought about a drinking game for them as we are all usually pretty hammered by that point anyway.
So this release I think its time I fixed that oversight and have taken a look at the multiplayer modes with an eye to getting drunk.
Now for anyone that has not read one of these drinking games before, here is an important little fact. When I refer to ‘A Drink’ I am talking about a quick gulp of whatever beer takes your fancy. Personally that is Guinness, but you know what you can handle and I will leave it to your common sense beyond that.
Warzone & Execution modes
The other Carmine brother – When someone on your team dies and you are still alive, Take a Drink.
Pay the Reaper – When you have to use a respawn you have to pay the price. Spawns 20 to 11, 1 Drink. Spawns 10-2, 2 Drinks. Final Spawn – Finish your pint
Capture the Leader
Your princess is in another castle – When your leader is captured, Take a Drink. If you then fail to save your leader before the 30 seconds is up, Take another Drink.
King of the Hill
This is my spot and I’m not moving – When you capture a point, Take a Drink
Fallen Comrade – Whenever your wingman dies, Take a Drink.
They made such a nice couple as well – Whenever a team is completely killed, Take a Drink
Lambent Warrior – At the end of each wave the two players with the lowest kills must take 2 Drinks, Everyone else 1 Drink
That’s all there is too it, a simple set of rules for the multiplayer modes (above and beyond the classic, drink when you die). Because of how fast some of these events can occur is would classify this as a Heavy drinking game.
