Warning: Always drink in moderation, unless you too want to turn into a middle-aged writer of MLP fanfiction! I suggest medium strength beer for the rules as they stand, although hardcore drinkers may opt for shots.

Drink = a sip, while Finish your drink means what it says!

***Global Rules***

Take a drink whenever:

- the opening or closing sequence plays
If you choose to skip either, you must finish your drink. Shame on you!

- somepony refers to 'friendship'
Additionally, you must say "Friendship is Magic!" or finish your drink

- anypony drinks something, even if it's just hotsauce
Additionally, you must say "Confound these ponies! They drive me to drink" or finish your drink

- anypony refers to Princess Celestia
Additionally, you must say "Another thousand years!" or finish your drink
Supporters of the New Lunar Republic may choose to say "Down with the Tyrant!" instead

- Derpy Hooves appears on screen
Additionally, if Derpy talks, you must finish your drink

- any other fan-favourite background pony appears (e.g. Octavia, DJ-P0N3 etc.)

- Big Mac says "Eee-yup" or "Eeey-nope"

- Lyra and Bon Bon appear onscreen together

- somepony starts singing
Additionally, you must sing along with the song or finish your drink. It's okay if you mangle some of the lyrics - nopony is perfect!

- anypony claps (clops?) their hooves or brohoofs another pony

- a pony grabs another's tail

- a pony-related pun is made e.g. "Neighsayers", "Fillydelphia"

- somepony's mane is ruined

- a background pony speaks

You may also take a drink whenever you feel like it!

Finish your drink whenever:

- the Elements of Harmony are used

- anypony uses the expression "Best X ever!"

You may also finish your drink whenever you feel like it!

The Memes! They Burn! Whenever anything that has become a meme occurs in an episode, (e.g. "10 seconds flat", "Scootaloo's a chicken", "Dat flank!", "I only watch it for the plot..." etc. etc.) recite the meme, laugh, holler, throw snacks at the screen, generally make an ass of yourself, then finish your drink

Only one prob. I don't drink. :(
tyciol Featured By Owner May 30, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
In spite of what pics like… insinuate, "dat flank" is actually the side of the legs, where the cutie marks are, not the posterior.

You might mean "dat rump" as a "plot" or "dat ass" substitute.

My friend and I have every intention of trying this. All of this. With alcohol. Now we just need money and free time. Wish us luck.
thelovelypenguin Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2012
Hahaha, maybe this is better done with coffee, or something even more innocuous, such as juice. XD Actually, I'd probably favor soda, myself.
Jacky2734 Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2012
I cry foul!

This game is rigged to have every participant absolutely hammered by the first commercial break. Even if they use mild strength beer.
alxc22 Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2012
why not "whenever anypony says pony?" then you would die! :D *brohoof*
secondly ive managed to convince some non-brony friends to play this game.... let them join the herd! :D

necrodios Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2012
If you marathon the series, you can apply another rule after you've finished the first episode or two:

Take a drink whenever:
You are coherent enough to actually remember any of the other rules.
Buttersc0tchSundae Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
That rules quickly becomes even more meta as you struggle to remember it as well, necrodios! :icondashlolplz:

Shit, I will die. Could be a fun bonding experience with my brother, though. XD

Death is often a wonderful bonding experience, StainedGlassMasque!
I used to bond with my brother over a pokemon drinking game I wrote as well.
