Dream of Electric Drinks With This ‘Blade Runner’ Drinking Game

Drinking Games

This coming weekend marks the 30th anniversary of the release of Ridley Scott’s visionary science fiction film Blade Runner. We are only seven short years from the predicted dystopia of 2019, and while we don’t have cool flying cars or synthetic snakes yet (let alone replicant love slaves), we can still hope for the future.

Whether you prefer the studio’s “Director’s Cut,” the Ridley Scott-approved “Final Cut,” or the less adored theatrical cut from the summer of 1982, you can enjoy it fresh with this drinking game. Buffer your stomach with some noodles from an Asian street vendor or drink the liquor straight from the bottle as Rick Decker does (though you probably won’t last through 20 minutes of the film if you choose to do it that way). Also, gird your loins for the rumored Blade Runner sequel in the future because you’ll need some strength and copious amounts of alcohol to deal with the aftermath of that film.

And now, to cover our butts… This game is only for people over the age of 21. Please drink responsibly, and be sure to let your emotions loose during a Voight-Kampff test.
