A "traditional finnish bonus tournament"

For drinking one pint/portion of beer you will get 1 point.

For winning a game you will get 2 points.  Games are self paired.

Drink and play till 11 pm.  After that the scores are tallied and the winner is announced!

At the end, the person with the most points wins

The traditional prize is a carton of orange juice to lessen the hangover the next day. This is a 21+ event sorry Yuga and Joe :)


All in all its pretty simple, one person will be the designated sober person/score keeper to make sure we don't cause too much of a mess.  The people at fatcat agreed to give us a discount on PBR.  Its not really beer, but it works.

    ah, forgot the comment. I can bring one full-size wooden board + stones.

    I haven't been able to find any place to organize it in though.

    Okay, this thing has been sitting here for way to long. Let's get this off the ground or off the site.

    We're going to need at lease the following, whoever can provide it, speak up.
    1) Place
    2) boards (from the looks of it, 2-4)
    3) booze
    We can all split the cost of alcohol if necessary.

    Also, since I ran out of characters from the msg above: any idea in how many weeks we'll set this up? I'll can ask around for locations, there might be a place or two that would work...

    lmao XD I'm finnish and it's my first time hearing about this kind of event... Although it does sound like something Finns might come up with, so I'm in! Make sure you have the exact point values nice and visible at the event too, otherwise I have no idea how much I have to drink to make up for all the wins you guys get~ Btw, does the drinking have to happen while you're playing to get points? ;p

    ine point for a pint *** sorry typo

    lets say you get & point for every pint you drink; one point for a glass of wine; and 4 points for winning a game. There are three rounds and the person who has more points at the end of them is the winner of the tournament. Of course we will need at least one more or less sober referee to keep track of all this stuff etc.

    The rules need to be a bit clearer. If you win by X points you drink Y beers? Rinse and repeat for 3-4 rounds?

    And I'm not exactly sure if I borrow the meetup space for this event =O

    Otherwise it sounds fun
