Robert Jordan: drink when a man snorts. Drink when a woman sniffs, tugs at her hair, folds her arms under her breasts, calls a man wool-headed or threatens violence on a man. When characters spend over a hundred pages pointlessly bickering that could have been avoided by a five-minute conversation, finish the bottle.

Classic science fiction: Drink every time a person who lives in a far-future society that has FTL travel and ray-guns needs to calculate or investigate something, and so busts out a slide-rule or microfilm viewer.

(Finish beverage whenever all male members of the cast, and NO females, sit around smoking and drinking and discussing the plot. Chug another if an actual "cocktail hour" is mentioned. NOTE that this makes H. Beam Piper's "Fuzzy" stories particularly dangerous.)

Sappho: Drink every time you can't tell if something is hot or disgusting.

You know, most of these are pretty half-assed, but this one is just puzzling. There's not much that's explicitly sexual in Sappho. But this is not just inaccurate; it also kind of smacks of homophobia.

Terry Brooks:
-Drink every time someone does something "wordlessly". (Do a shot if they are nodding wordlessly. Do another if this is shortly after another character's death.)
-Drink every time the word "maw" is used.
-Take a drink for every red-haired female romantic lead who is described as "wilful" and/or "fiery-haired". At least one shot every time she "brushes back her fiery hair" and demonstrates her emotional strength. Double if she wears soft boots that scuff on the cobblestones.

One of the best things about smoking cigarettes is sitting down with a good noir or period piece and chain smoking along with the characters. A lot of authors tend to harp on the scent of tobacco and smoking while reading can really elevate the experience.

kaibutsu: "… and I'm still trying to figure out how any planet (read: Terminus) can be considere 'remote' when they've mastered instantaneous intergalactic travel."

IIRC, it's heavily implied (and maybe even mentioned, though I think that happens in the later books / Asimov's wider mythos) that they don't have 'instantaneous travel' - hyperspace is hard to navigate, with a fair degree of uncertainty particularly when travelling through the crowded galactic centre & denser parts of the spiral arms, due to difficulty in calculating the exact hyperspatial distortions from mass in 'real' space. As a result, they have to make many short jumps with long periods (days?) of recalculation in between.

(Myself, I always wondered why they didn't jump well out of the galactic plane as quickly as possible, across, then back in…)

You could base a drinking game around Asimov's well-rounded and believable female characters, but you'd be drier than the man himself…

(I'm gonna re-read a 'Lucky Starr' novel and take a swig each time Bigman is patronised by someone, with a double if it's by Lucky himself. Don't think I'll be going to uni tomorrow…)

Artw: There are two kinds of drinking games. The ones that you play seriously and get mildly inebriated, and the ones that are thinly veiled excuses to seek total oblivion as quickly as possible.

I'd add for Heinlein's later work: Take a drink every time a main character does something or is described in a way that reveals them to be a thinly disguised wish fulfillment fantasy for the author.

Sourwookie: I'm thinking specifically of America "Amy" Shaftoe (though I was counting YT too). In particular where on page 581 (Arrow Books, 2000 edition), Amy speaks with Randy regarding the idea of them hooking up:

"It's not even clear to me that you and I constitute a potential couple. But you have started acting towards me in a way that indicates some interest in that direction, so you have certain obligations." Amy has now started to get pissed off and begun to move around the yard. The Shaftoe boys eye her warily from across their steaming oatmeal bowls, ready to spring into action and wrestle her to the ground if she should fly out of control. "It would be just... totally ... unacceptable for you to make those kind of representations to me and then jet off and cuddle with your California sweetheart without coming to me first and going through certain formalities, which would be awkward but which I would hope you would be man enough to endure. Right?"

DRINK!

Now I love talking shop as much as the next scientist, and I have been known to utter sentences that contain a large proportion of multi-syllabic words. But as a woman, I must protest: WHO TALKS LIKE THAT!?!? Don't get me wrong, I think Stephenson's characterisation of women is quite charming. That being said, the day I say to Mr. Russel-Wallace "you must go through certain formalities, which would be awkward but which I would hope you would be man enough to endure"... that day would also herald the flying of pigs and a crystalline hell.

This misses the game aspect unless employed at a book club, for which I would suggest that everyone drink when a participant says "I didn't get," "my favorite," "didn't you hate," "kind of a metaphor," "didn't finish," "this dip," or "can't keep it in his pants."

I didn't find it odd because she's the daughter of a possibly-crazy Vietnam vet (who was the son of a definitely-crazy WWII vet) with two crazy honor-bound brothers who are all part of a pretty rigidly-structured traditional-values Tennessee Southern family. I also got the feeling that she had adequacy issues behind the strong front she presented in regards to how Randy viewed her, so she might have been hamming it up a bit.

I don't even know if he has been translated to English, but with Jose Agustin if you drink whatever the protagonist is drinking and you smoke whatever the protagonist is smoking, you will have a lot of fun and finish the novel almost in real time.

Last time I did this, I fell asleep on the chair at the bottom of one page, woke up and smoked a joint. I turned the page and he describes the protagonist blacking out and waking up to a joint.

The Jane Austen drinking game.

1. inadequate dowery
2. small dogs
3. first one to call a womanly skill is safe, next time it is shown, the others have to drink (ex: piano forte).
4. woman looses her countenance (2 drinks)
5. retention of countenance (3 drinks)
6. spontaneous equestrianism
7. falling in love (1 shot)
8. esteem and/or regard
9. womanly skill plus failure to observe rank is a double count--which means the last person to take their pinky off their drink has to chug
