‘2001: A Drunk Odyssey’ Drinking Game

2001

Even though he passed away in the last century, Stanley Kubrick continues to be one of the most revered filmmakers of all time. However, it is somewhat depressing how few people have seen some of his classic films. Love them or hate them, Kubrick’s classics should be experiences, on the big screen if possible.

One of his most well-known and groundbreaking films was 2001: A Space Odyssey. While the year 2001 has come and gone many years ago, the film survives in various formats. Some people – especially in the younger generation – may complain it is a bit slow-moving, especially compared to modern films of today. For those who want to experience Kubrick’s masterpiece but need a little help, this drinking game will assist you.

See? This column can be educational as well as hedonistic.

And now, to cover our butts… This game is only for people over the age of 21. Please drink responsibly, and don’t forget your helmet.
