The Sci-Fi ConComm Meeting Drinking Game


Inspired by caprine's link to misia's Corporate Phone Meeting Drinking Game, I feel inspired to create something (eerily) similar:

The Sci-Fi ConComm Meeting Drinking Game

Take a shot every time the following happens:

  • Someone goes off on a humorous tangent
  • Someone goes off on a tangent from that tangent
  • That someone is nolly, glittercat13 or galtine1
  • The Chair attempts to steer the meeting back to the original topic
  • Someone actually returns to the original topic
  • Someone makes a Star Trek, Monty Python or Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy reference
  • Someone refers to the way things were done in their day
  • Someone refers to the way things are done at other cons
  • Someone threatens to quit
  • The meeting starts late
  • Someone shows up late
  • A department head is absent
  • A department head has nothing new to report since the last meeting
  • Concensus is reached Yeah, like that'll ever happen!
Suggestions for additions? I'm sure this has been done before, but the concept amused me, and I figured us San Diego fans could have a humorous spin on things. (Ha! Drink!)

Someone's phone rings and they take the call.
"Hi [fan name of person on the phone]" by entire group.
Someone leaves early.
Dinner/lunch plans are made before the meeting starts.

Bwahahaaa!

One shot: Someone says "shiny thing" to get everybody's attention.

Two shots: They actually hold up a shiny object while saying it.

Three shots: There is an immediate tangent about the shiny object. (Did you get that at FooCon? I saw a dealer selling those at BarCon! How much was it? Did you know they used that as an alien art object in an episode of Series?)

I was wondering how we'd work "shiny thing" in there...

In my experience, the references and tangents alone would get all participants hammered in the first 20 minutes of the meeting, and then the situation would just degrade from there.

That's one of those drinking games that one cannot hope to win. :)

1 shot anytime 2 (or more) people quote any fandom in unison.
1 shot anytime somebody bursts into song. 2 if they just burst.

That reminds me of a song...

Jeezus! Have you MET my BF?!?!? I'd be drunk constantly if I kept a running game of this going in his presence.

Bah.

totally unrelated but then most things from my mouth
but it reminded me of this exchange between you and Little John a few pennsics back

LJ Oh My God, he is pawing at the earth with his bare hands!
you: Oh he does that he is one of those earth mother types!

You are Geb. Nature is your passion. You find
yourself energized whenever you are in a place
without civilization. You most likely are a
part of PETA or are considering it...either
that or a real animal lover. It's people like
you that keep people like me from building
cities all over. And that's ok. Hold on to your
beliefs! :-)

I can't tell you how glad I am to have reduced my involvement with SF concom meetings to the one or two times a year we do a Gallifrey meeting. And even then, the chair is on speakerphone, 5000 miles away. :)

Shut up and take a shot! :P
