Midterm Study Drinking Games: How to feel productive when you’re absolutely not
Periodic-Table Pong: It’s like normal beer pong, but with elements and all the other things you should probably know for that big midterm!
Think, Drink: For every word in your textbook that rhymes with “drink”… drink. This includes slant rhyme, visual rhyme, and any other form of rhyme that could stretch it.
‘Kings’, Study Version: Replace a deck of cards with your sloppily-drawn flash cards, and when the beer is cracked open, the person who answered the last question correctly can choose who must chug it.
A simpler note card game for the friendless: Flash through study questions, and once you get all of them right, celebrate with a well-deserved shot.
Every time you have to look up a term in the Glossary, take a shot.
MediaVision watching game: Take a shot every time:
-a professor walks off-screen
-there is an awkward pause
-a professor responds to a student’s question, or awkwardly tries to do so.
Protractor Pong: Calculate the angles at which the ping-pong ball bounces off the table. If you’re not within five degrees, take a shot.
Flip Fact: a more studious version of the classic game ‘Flip Cup,’ with trivia on the bottom of each cup.
Drink every time someone coughs on the third floor of KSL.
Seriously, though, this is the quiet room, and you’re being inconsiderate.
For every dreaded essay page you write, take a drink. For every five textbook pages you read, take a drink.
To study important terms, play the name game. The first name of each word must start with the letter of the last one, and an incorrect answer would mean one shot.
Tip: Make it relevant. For example, “Organic Chemistry > yield strength > holy crap, I don’t know any of this!!!!!!” would be a valid string.
Pi: Take a shot for each decimal of pi you know – or eat a slice of pie! If you know more than four, let’s be real- you probably don’t need to study that hard anyway.
