Edward Forty Hands is a brilliantly named college classic drinking game that’s much harder than it sounds!
Sip Score: ***** (High-Sipping game)
Game Description: Words can’t really do this game justice. It’s a hoot! Hands. Duct Tape. Two forties of beer or malt liquor. It’s all there for a great evening of entertainment.
Number of Players: Minimum of two
You Will Need: To have seen Edward Scissorhandsin order to appreciate the true genius of this game’s title. Oh, and two 40 oz bottles of beer, some duct tape, a couple of spare hours and a willing audience to enjoy the spectacle!
How to Play: Strap one bottle of 40 oz beer or malt liquor to each of your hands with duct tape (this is the Forty Hands part), and proceed to drink them both, as fast as possible, while they remain strapped to your hands. Players must also abide by the restrictive rules of the game at the same time. This is hilarious to watch and even more amusing to try to play!
Rules of the Game:
DO NOT UNTIE YOUR HANDS: Any competitor who does so is disqualified.
DO NOT POUR OUT OR SPILL ANY OF THE BEER: Any competitor who does so will be OUT!
DO NOT HAVE ANYONE ELSE DRINK THE BEER FOR YOU: This is a no-brainer, but if you do, you will be disqualified.
NO GOING TO THE BATHROOM DURING COMPETITION: This is an optional rule, which actually makes a lot of sense if you think about the logistical difficulties that would ensue…!
The competitor who finishes BOTH bottles of beer/malt liquor within all of the rules FIRST, is crowed Edward Forty Hands and is the winner!
You Lose: If you are disqualified or if you fail to finish the 80 oz of beer in their entirety before another competitor.
