Edward Forty-Hands Drinking Game
This week’s drinking game is about as simple as it gets, but it is as fun and hilarious as it is simple! We would not recommend this one for drinkers who are “out of practice”—yeah, we’re kind of talking to you, lightweights!
If you are up for a challenge, throw on some pants that are super easy to take off (not as creepy as it sounds), and let’s get at it!
What you need:
- 2+ participants
- 2 40’s for each participant (40 oz beers)
- Duct tape
- A solid bladder (highly recommended, but not required)
Set it Up!
You probably know where this is going... each participant will have a forty duct-taped to each of their hands. The forties should be secured so that participants do not actually need to hold the 40’s… rather they are stuck with them even if they would like to put them down!
Once all players have a forty duct-taped to each hand, we are ready to go!
It’s Drinking Time!
The only thing left to do is drink! Some play so that both forty caps are removed immediately (making it incredibly difficult to do anything without spilling). We recommend leaving the caps on until you are ready to drink. A bystander can help you with removing each cap when the time comes.
So, your hands are pretty much useless now. The winner is the person who finishes both of the 40’s first! Once both 40’s are finished, the duct tape and forties can be removed and the finisher is rewarded with a much-needed bathroom break.
SO, you might be wondering what happens if you need a restroom break prior to finishing your 40’s. This is where the easy-to-remove pants come in. If you have loose sweats you can manage to get off with your 40’s on, go for it. If you have a great friend who is willing to help you out—like seriously, great friend—go for it!
The one thing you should NOT do if you would like to stay in the race is remove either of the 40’s. Regardless of whether one has been finished yet, the rules of the game state both 40’s must remain attached until both have been finished. Having said that, we recommended DQ’ing yourself over peeing yourself. Dedication comes at a cost, but wearing piss-soaked clothes for the remainder of the night is entirely too high of a price.
Try it Out!
The only thing left to do is turn into Edward Forty-hands! We wish you the best of luck. As always, please drink responsibly! No one wants to be the guy/gal that pushed a little too far in Edward 40 hands and projectile vomited all over the entryway.
With that out of the way, have a blast!!
