Euro you want to

Popped over to Troubled Diva to discover that the lucky chap is reporting on Eurovision from Athens. I am very jealous. Top tips can be picked up from the Diva's site if you are having a flutter or try the BBC site here . My sister will be having her traditional Eurovison party complete with selected national snacks and the Euro Points Drinking Game. I was minded to share the rules of my version of the Euro Drinking game( which I will be playing with my sister, J and friends) in the comments on the Diva's blog, and I reproduce the game rules here so you can all join in if you want

You will need: three hats (or containers to pick papers out of), international snacks, large quantities of alcohol, paper and a pen. Write down all the participating countries on bits of paper, put in hat. Do same with number of 'points' ( Include 'Nul Points') . Do same with characteristics ( suggestions below, feel free to add your own)

Everyone pick a country out of a hat.
Everyone pick a number of 'pointes' out of a hat.
Everyone pick a collection of 'characteristics' out of a hat. 'Characterisistics' include:

  • Wind machine
  • Gypsy Violins
  • Inadvertent nipple flashing
  • Peasant on stage
  • Flag waving
  • Bondage/fetish-wear
  • Wet-look hair
  • Luxuriant moustache(s)
  • Ambivalent sexuality/gender
  • Explosions/fireworks
  • Random percussion
  • Guitar solo
  • Over-use of crotch
  • Sudden tempo change (i.e from ballad to hard rock)
  • Rapping
  • High kicks
  • Formation dancing
  • Folk dancing
  • Removal of items of clothing (inc. hats). Bonus points for skirts or trousers.
  • Back flips
  • High-pitched inarticulate yelps or cries

You must drink, or score a point when your country, number of points, or characteristic (s) appear on screen. Keep a note of your drinks/scores.
Accompany with appropriate international snacks that are devoured when that country performs its song.

Enjoy! Salut! And come on, Teenage Life! ( The smart money is on Germany, though)

Wasn't Satanic Death Metal - they also sang a song called "The Devil is a Loser" which probably doesn't go down well with Satanists!
