A few people who have played succession games with me know of my penchant for tipping a few during play. I have also been PM'ed if I had rules. I have started playing again and when I do drink on the weekends I jotted down the owns I could remember. I started making myself rules because I would become so absorbed in the game I would sometimes forget I had a beer next to me and 2 hours later it would be warm. I put in these automatic drinking pauses to assure my game play was well balanced. Feel free to add more if you have any that I may want to incorporate and please no harping that drinking and Civ don't mix. 3 parts civ and 1 part whiskey make an excellent "Sneak Attack" Also included are a few rules I follow while out drinking. Barbslingers Rules for a Drinking Conquest There are 3 types of drinks I use: Quick swig of beer, Long guzzle of beer and the oft-used shot of Crown Royal. Swigs- After every city build or conquest New tech, love those 3fers Connect a resource / lux. Look for pop-up Making peace. Quickie and back to the game. After going through cities and hitting enter as many swigs as needed. This takes time and youll need the beer after this arduous task. Guzzle While game is loading. Leader / great wonder build DOW either way, stand up while drinking this one. Possibly a shot if sneak attacked. New era was a 3 guzzle stand up pause. Shots - Losing a city. Exterminating an enemy. Taking over the lead per F8. Anytime you need to clear your head and think about what strategy to use its a stand-up shot. Closing game when you cant see it anymore.
