Democratic Presidential Primary Debate Drinking Game - Round 6

February 11, 2016 – PBS NewsHour

The Rules Are Simple

The rules for the early primary debate drinking games will follow the 'Texas Hold'em' style. Each candidate will have a few words unique to him/her. In addition, each debate will have three 'community' words.

Select Your Candidate

This is a game afterall, and games are more fun when you are competing.

Listen for the Words on the List

Listen for YOUR candidate to say his/her specific words and listen for every candidate to say a community word. If ANY CANDIDATE says a community word, EVERYONE drinks

Take a Drink when you hear one

Because this may be a high scoring game, we define a drink as a gulp of beer or sip of wine or liquor. Know your limits and please drink responsibly.


The Candidates and their Drink Cues

  • Hillary Clinton — Families, Guns, Flint, Iran
  • Bernie Sanders — Education, Wall Street, Percent, ISIS
  • Community Words — South Carolina, Military, Trump (any candidates say one - everybody drinks)
