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.
