Robin of Sherwood Drinking Game

I made this drinking game because I thought RoS didn't have one, then I visited Gisburne's NASTY Knight Page and discovered there was in fact a RoS drinking game in existence. There was enough difference that I decided not to scrap my version, but make sure to visit the other game as well. (Besides, there's tons of other funny stuff at the NASTY Knight page that you wouldn't want to miss.)

If you're not sure what a drinking game is...it's really very simple although every game has slightly different rules. While watching Robin of Sherwood (any episode is okay, but may work best if you have a short marathon <g>) look for incidents of the things listed below. When they occur, follow the directions (# of sips, what to say) for each incident. (Feel free to pick a few from the list, add your own, play around with it...this list is just to get you started.) The # of sips get higher the more rare the occurance is. Traditionally, you'd use an alcoholic beverage, but it works just as well with a non-alcoholic drink or some kind of snack food like pieces of candy or pretzels that come in units of one (so you can substitute one piece for each sip).

If you don't have time to get out the old Robin of Sherwood tapes, you could also use the list as a trivia quiz and see how many episodes you can think of where each thing on the list happens
