Star Wars V
To drink, or not to drink. That is the true test of a Jedi.

While I’m sure it would be easy to adapt the following rules for the three films George Lucas released specifically to crush the spirit of anyone born before 1990, I’d like to forget the prequels ever happened and so these rules have been designed for rewatching Episodes 4 through 6.

    Social Drinks:

While many other instances could have been thought up for individual films, my thought was that all three would be watched and so I tried not to be too harsh with the social drinks.

Anytime someone says “Force”

Anytime someone says “Jedi”

Anytime a lightsaber is turned on/off

Anytime someone/something loses a limb, drink 2

Anytime someone has a “bad feeling about this”, drink 3

Anytime an incestual event occurs, drink 4 to wash the taste out of your mouth

    Individual Characters:

Keep in mind that casual imbibers will do just fine with the social drinks but should you feel the need to up the ante, choose a character and drink whenever their name is said – it’s up to you whether it should be an exact name or something approximate (i.e. My Lord for Vader, Your Highness for Leia). And to make matching your tolerance with the series easier, here’s the list in approximate descending order of liver injury (you’ve been warned).

Luke (careful, this one is over the century mark if you watch the full trilogy)
Darth Vader
Princess Leia
Obi-Wan (Ben) Kenobi
Han Solo

(It’d take two or three of the following to match any of the characters above)

The Emperor
Jabba the Hut
Lando Calrissian
