A while back, I mentioned that LITO reader Clint was putting together an Office drinking game and he wanted your help. Well, with that help, he has created the Offical Office Drinking Game. I will include the game below.
As I said before, I’m not a drinker. But, I will be interested to see how each of the new episodes score. As the new season starts up, we’ll have Clint write in after each episode to let us know what the total count was for that show. Also, if any of you go back and watch some old episodes, put the episode total in this comment section of this post. That’d be interesting to know.
And now, tha official game rules:
Alright!! We have a final list. I decided to give the thread a few weeks to marinate and it looks like all the comments that were gonna come in have come in. Everyone’s feedback was awesome, but there was just too many to use them all. I did make adjustments to some that I did choose from LITO readers but nothing was drastically altered. I decided 20 rules was a good round number. You know, not too many to remember and not too little to NOT have fun. So without further ado.
