Thirsty Thursday: You Drank My Battleship

Battleship Drinking Game

Battleship Bar Game, by Mauricio (Tony) Harion

It’s more than just alliteration; it’s a statement, a proclamation that Thursdays are when the weekend should really start. Kicking it off right is the key, and what better way than with a cocktail that not only takes the edge off, but tastes good too. A hard thing to disagree with, we know. Drink up, get down and go to sleep happy.

With Peter Berg’s new movie Battleship hitting the box office this weekend, it’s only natural to harbor a bit of nostalgia. If your childhood was anything like mine, you likely spent hours deliberating over imaginary missiles, simultaneously guessing the location of their respective targets. But while talk of the new Battleship movie has many longing for the old, faithful board game, it’s also inspired a new, alcoholic appropriation. Never mind my battleship(s), you just sunk my liver!

Amenable to almost any board, the general gist is simple: the game carries on as usual, but this time each ship houses a certain number of shots (2 for a destroyer, 3 for a cruiser or submarine, 4 for a battleship and 5 for an aircraft carrier). If your battleship gets hit, so does your liver — with a shot of… whatever you want? Suggestions below.

Outdoor Battleshots

You can even fashion your own outside.

If you’re feeling outdoorsy, you can easily fashion your own on a table like the one shown above (via Geekologie).

Glow in the Dark Battleship

Or play in the dark, if you dare. Concept from Kickstarter.

No lights? No problem. Glow in the dark shot glasses will keep the battle on and liquor flowing. Sound fun? Support the Kickstarter.
