A Thanksgiving Drinking Game


by Sinead Hunt

Thanksgiving can be a stressful time for many of us. Family pressures combined with the knowledge that what we’re celebrating is predicated on the subjugation of native peoples create a torrent of emotions. Luckily, there’s nothing that brings the whole family together like the shared joy of alcohol! With that in mind, Barnard Bite is here to the rescue with a drinking game that’s fun for the whole family!

Here are the RULES:

-A shot for every class you were forced to attend the Wednesday before break

-Drink: Every time a relative asks you, “Wait, what did you say your major was again?”

(BONUS ROUND: Extra shot if they then proceed to ask you, “What do you plan on doing with that?”)

-Drink: Every time a well-meaning relative brings up Donald Trump

BONUS ROUND: Shot for every time a relative says, “Well, he doesn’t really mean that…”

-Two shots for every time a relative says, “It’s not that I’m racist, but I really think that Trump just has a better plan for the economy. He is a businessman after all.”

Finish the whole damn bottle: A relative quips, “But at least it’s better than having a criminal for president…”

-Drink: when you lose track of how many slices of pumpkin pie you have consumed

-Drink: if your drunken relatives attempt to play football in the yard, despite their inebriated state

-Take a shot for every time an aunt asks you about your love life

Finish the whole damn bottle: if she then proceeds to insinuate that every student at a women’s college is a lesbian

-Three shots to forget all the homework you are ignoring over the weekend

Finish the whole damn bottle: if your relative mispronounces it as “Barnyard,” instead of “Barnard.”

-Barnard Bite encourages you to consume alcohol responsibly and does not advocate for the irresponsible use of alcohol. This post is meant as a joke-
