Video Game Drinking Games

In honour of St. Paddy’s day, the kind folks at TwistedBard would like to help you celebrate in your own unique way. We have delved deep into the memory banks to bring up some blurry nights of immense fun and drinking.

St. Patrick’s day is held on the 17th March to commemorate the death of St. Patrick (the Patron Saint of Ireland). In modern times St. Patrick’s day is celebrated across the globe as those who clutch onto the smallest slither of Irish heritage use the day as an excuse to go all out and just get smashed. For those of you who want to celebrate the day, but don’t want to go out and face the drunken masses, here are a few drinking games you can play in the comfort of your own home with a trusted group of friends:
