The debate drinking game -- add your own rules

Pour yourself a cup of your favorite beer, wine, or whatever. Have your next cup handy – things can get going fast. (Feel free to substitute the term “hit” for “sip” and “blunt” for “cup”.)

These rules are just a starter set. Add your own rules in the comments section.

1 sip
