By request... The Rules...

No, these are not the rules about how to catch a man. Ewww.

These are the rules to the official Grumpy Frump Princess Bride Drinking Game. Actually, now that I think of it, this was the game I played with my husband when we were first dating. And it was the night of our first kiss. So, technically, I bagged my husband using these rules. Hmmmmmm. But I digress...

The official rules state that you must take a drink, equal to one shot, one swig... whatever... each time you hear any of the following, in any order:

  1. Vizzini (played by Wallace Shawn) exclaiming, "Inconceivable!"
  2. Any utterance of "As you wish."
  3. "Hello. You killed my father. Prepare to die." (This one will kick your ASS toward the end of the movie!)
  4. Any time Fezzik (Andre the Giant) makes a rhyme ("No more rhymes! I mean it!!" "Anybody want a peanut?")
  5. Any time the "Dread Pirate Roberts" is mentioned.

The only other rule is that you have to be of legal drinking age to play. At least, that's a house rule here. If you can still stand by the end of the movie, you win.

The bonus round: You watch the DVD and play, and then watch the bonus features while still playing... if you're still standing, you are a master. Or a raging alcoholic. Take your pick.

Take a shot of choice after the line:
"You mean you wish to surrender to me..very well I accept."

because it's the greatest line in the movie.

Never was one for drinking games, but I do loves me some Princess Bride. I can quote that movie front to back.

"You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."

"Inhale this, but do not touch."
"I smell nothing."
"What you do not smell is called Iocaine powder. It is oderless, tasteless, dissolves instantly in liquid, and is among the more deadly poisons known to man."

I could go on...
"You mocked me once, never do it again. I died that day...You can die to for all I care."
"Assssssss youuuuuuuu wiiiiiiiiiissshhhh!"
"Oh, my sweet Westley, what have I done?"

I'll stop now.

I have been following your blog for a while now, but confess that I have never signed in. I suspected you were a Princess Bride fan when you called your husband Farm Boy, but with today's post, I know it to be true. And it makes me happy, for it is indeed the best movie ever made. :)

"Wait. Is this a kissing book?"

"Bye-bye boys! Have fun storming the castle!"

Ah, I think I'll go plug in my dvd and watch it again. :)

don't call me MA'AM said...

margus: Yay! I love new rules!! And that is a great line.

jaek: actually, that date was the last time I played a drinking game. Sad. Now, the only drinking game I play is a guessing game:"Will I be able to walk after this ONE glass of wine?" I'm such a wuss!

kristie: I'm so glad you finally commented! And I agree... best movie ever! I love those quotes, and I especially love Fred Savage in that role. I think my favorite quote in the whole thing is "I'm not a witch! I'm your wife!" Carol Kane is hilarious.

Hope you come back often!

I can't wait to try this game... I've played similar drinking games all with bad endings.

My friends and I were obsessed with Center Stage in college and tried playing a games with it. Every time a main characters name was said you had to take a drink. Well, this last about 30mins because there are like 7 main characters. So you can do the math. It was painful. Very painful!

DccM, since you don't have an email listed I'm returning your comment: Thanks for the very detailed comment to my post about the suspended teacher. It helps to have someone who was formerly in the system speak to this issue. I guess if teachers don't want what they said put on tape they shouldn't say it, eh? :)

Poppy Cede said...

*DcmM, sorry. I have become stupid in my older age.

Paisley said...

Master Peebody said...

I'm yet to see the movie. Might ask around to see if any of my friends have got it.

What a fantastic game! This is the first time I've visited your blog. What a treat. All my favorite lines have already been identified, except maybe, "You're very clever. Now shut up," said by the grandpa to Fred Savage.

don't call me MA'AM said...

Poppy: that's odd. I thought I had that somewhere. OH, wait. That's part of the contest. Never mind. :-)

Paisley: I don't think I could do it now. As in, I don't think I have the drinking chops anymore. hah

MPB: yes, you MUST!!!

kitkat: very glad you stopped by! Oh, and could they have cast anyone better than Peter Falk in that role? He was perfection!!

Ludicrousity said...

Haha! That sounds fun! I love tha tmovie!!!

Red said...

Is this a kissing blog?!? You know PB's been on VH1 lately? Wow, that was a lot of acronyms in a row. Anyway, I love that drinking game and will have to remember it.

Kim said...

Jaek and I should have quote off.

"You rush a miracle man, you get rotten miracles."

"You seem a decent fellow. I hate to kill you."
"You seem a decent fellow. I hate to die."

"You mean you wish to surrender to me? Very well, I accept."

"True love is the greatest thing, in the world...except for a nice MLT, mutton, lettuce and tomato sandwich, where the mutton is nice and lean and the tomato is ripe."

Gosh, I love that movie. I'm going to go rewatch it right now.

don't call me MA'AM said...

ludi: I might play it again tomorrow night... but with Diet Coke only. :-)

red: "Wait. Just wait." :-) I noticed it was on VH1 a few times over the weekend, but we didn't have time to watch. Good thing we have the Special Edition DVD!!!

kim: "And you! friendless, brainless, helpless, hopeless! Do you want me to send you back to where you were... unemployed in Greenland?!?! I think Vizzini and Miracle Max have the best lines in the whole movie... and everyone has great lines!
