Game 2

Ok, folks, here it is: the semi-official 1993 Beverly Hills, 90210 drinking game. IMHO, you'd have to be not sober to watch it anyway, but's that's JMO, right? :-) One word of warning: if you play this game as described, yo will possibly wind up with alcohol poisoning. If you play this game using something non-alcoholic, your bladder will probably explode by the first commercial break.
