The rules, as tweeted by @eurovisiondrink
The grand traditions laid down by Terry Wogan and Graham Norton mean we drink whilst watching the Eurovision Song Contest.
If you like a little competitiveness around it, then here is our list. When anything in this list happens, drink.
Going to print these out?
Don't bother. You don't need to remember the list. Which is handy because if you play along, towards the end of the night you'll be unable to. Just follow @eurovisiondrink on Twitter. Every time something happens, you'll see what to do in your timeline.
(But if you must, just hit print now. This webpage should print to one sheet of paper comfortably. No need to copy and paste.)
@eurovisiondrink — for your real-time booze notifications. Boozifications.
Remember to drink responsibly…
- Always refresh the glass of your guests before your own.
- Always have copious snacks available.
- A true Eurovision Drinking Game fan knows to stay hydrated, and to pace themselves. Nobody likes a sloppy drunk.
- No belching.
