POW! The “Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf” Drinking Game


After putting the I, Claudius Drinking Game to the test with a handful of amiable lushes, the market seemed wide open for more poisonous passtimes of similar hue. But the question nagged at me: what movie should I base a new drinking game around?

The answer was right under my nose. What’s the most drinkingest movie ever filmed, where alcohol plays such a pivotal role in the plot?

“Who’s afraid of Virginia Woolf, Virginia Woolf, Virginia Woolf? Who’s afraid of Virginia Woolf so early in the morning…”

I have heard of others hinging binge nights around this movie, so I can’t claim complete originality in the idea. But the game did need some structure. It is in the perhaps vainglorious hope of creating the Official WAOVW? Drinking Game Rules that I essay this humble project.
