Battle Shots Review

Posted in BatteShots, Random with tags , , on May 9, 2012 by George

I recently was able to get my hands on the new and exciting Battle Shots drinking game developed by the official Battle Shots company. Since playing the game a few times, I’d like to provide my personal review of the drinking game using several factors: ease of use, durability, drinkability, and overall level of fun that the game provides on a scale of 1 to 5. Here goes nothing:

1. EASE OF USE = 5 out of 5.

  • As you can see below the game comes fully equipped with shot glasses, pens for keeping track of hits and misses and two battleship-like looking board pieces that we had to put together to create the drinking game.
  • The board’s easily set into place above where the shot glasses without a problem and the shot glasses easily fit within their designated areas as well.
  • As for the game’s instructions, they were pretty clear and straightforward. It should be noted:
    • 3 shot glasses together = Carrier
    • 2 shot glasses together = Destroyer (you had two of these)
    • 1 shot glass = Submarine
  • See the picture below for everything included:

2. DURABILITY = 4 out 5.

  • The shots glasses were made of plastic and were fairly sturdy. However, during a party these could easily get lost or even broken, especially for the sloppy frat boy. However, the best part about the game board is that regular shot glasses or even dixie cups actually FIT in the designated places on the grid. Pretty Cool Stuff.
  • The part that you record your score was made of a shiny/eraser-friendly cardboard. I would have preferred something more sturdy, but it got the job done.
  • Cleaning and washing everything wasn’t a problem either.

3. DRINKABILITY = 10 of 5

  • During each game, each player is given 8 shots to drink. I also measured each shot glass, it is exactly 1 oz. So if you were using hard alcohol, this game is a pretty intense pre-game since it takes only between 15 and 20 minutes to play one game. However, if you were drinking a mixed beverage of sorts, or a beer (as seen in the picture below), you can drink and play many more games without falling over.

4. OVERALL RECOMMENDATION = 4.5 out of 5.

For the amount of money that the game costs and the amount of fun that you could potentially have while playing this game it is worth every penny. Here are some pros and cons I thought of to playing BattleShots:

  • PROS
    • Great pre-game! Playing two games and losing is 16 shots in roughly less than a hour.
    • It’s like Battleship with booze.  What can be better?
  • CONS
    • If you play with hard liquor, don’t plan on doing anything afterwards.

Where Can You Buy This Game?

  • Check out BattleShots.com and you can purchase it directly from that site.

Game Suggestions For the Future

  • Play with more people, obviously.  It helps to not only have more friends in general, but in this game it would be nice to play on teams such as beer pong.
  • A bigger board that allowed for boats, or possibly to just play with solo cups of beer such as beer pong.

Comments Welcome!

Six Superpowers Every Law School Student Wants

Posted in Law, Law School, Random on January 24, 2012 by George

It’s a classic hypothetical. Which superpower would you have? It’s a tough choice because there are plenty of powers out there to make the law student experience so much easier. How about the Wolverine-like ability to make highlighters come out of your hands?

Okay, maybe not that one. But here are six superpower’s every law school student would want:
1. Super Memory
Imagine this: you go to a class or read your textbook and that information just stays in your head. All of it. No cramming for exams, no rifling through your notes. Incredible.

2. Speed
Awesome speed would not only help you to get your assignments done quicker, it would mean that you would literally be able to run to uni faster than public transport could get you there – a lifesaver for submitting last minute essays. If you’d rather be Superman than the Flash, flying would also cut down that pesky commute to class.

3. Invisibility
Although not very helpful from a study point of view, if you ever found yourself saying something silly in class, you would actually be able to turn invisible and avoid some of the embarrassment.
4. Time Travel
Reading cases can get very dry. What if you could travel back in time and listen to the judgment being handed down? It would surely be better than reading the judgment.

5. Superhuman Strength
This may not serve you well in class or on assignments, but some superhuman strength, possessed by the likes of Thing, Superman, and pretty much all superheroes, would sure be helpful for carrying all those books home from the library.
6. Extreme multitasking
Imagine being able to read two pages of a book at once. Or write two pages of an essay simultaneously (just put a pen in each hand). Extreme multitasking skills would mean you’d get the work done sooner and you could get back to the important things, like your new scrapbooking obsession, a whole lot quicker.

Battle Shots is the New Beer Pong

Posted in Random on October 5, 2011 by George

Game night just got a little more interesting.

The game is called Battle Shots and appears to be best played in a winter hat and pajama pants. All you need to get started is some cardboard and a lot of shot glasses.

The idea that alcohol can improve a board game has a long and proud history. Trivial pursuit is insanely competitive after a round of drinks. I haven’t played Jenga sober in a decade and I’ll always associate dice with cheap domestic beer. Checkers was recently reinvented with shot glasses, although I can’t see how you could even make it through a single game, let alone be able to say the word, “rematch.”

Any board game with rules can ostensibly be transformed into a drinking game. Any negative move (your piece is taken or sent back to the beginning) calls for a drink. Any positive move (you pass GO, your checkers piece is crowned) allows you to assign a drink.

Alcohol may be the only way you can actually get through a game of Monopoly or Risk. And every game of Battleship is no different, it typically ends in tears or a board being swept off the table. But with a Michelob Ultra on the line, it would suddenly matter after two hours if you land on Park Place or manage to establish a foothold in Europe.

Just remember the best strategy in Battle Shots is the same as in Battleship and ALWAYS assume your opponent is moving his pieces between guesses.
