Pin It

If there’s one movie to get drunk to, it’s The Big Lebowski; Walter and The Dude will be glad to help you out.

How to Play

Put on the movie, and get yourself ready for the following penalties:

1 Drink

  • The Dude refers to himself in third person.
  • “Fuck”, “dude”, or “man” is said.
  • Walter gets angry.
  • Walter says “Fuck it dude, let’s go bowling”.
  • Dude, Walter, and Donny are bowling.
  • Walter puts down Donny.
  • The Dude’s rug is mentioned.
  • Someone speaks with an accent (i.e. Jesus, the nihilists).
  • Bunny’s toe is mentioned.

2 Drinks

  • Walter mentions Vietnam.
  • The Dude has a dream.
  • A line in the script is repeated (3 if that line is used somewhere not within the plot, i.e. “This aggression will not stand”).
  • Someone bowls a strike.
  • Someone is interrogated about the mystery (i.e. “Where’s the money Lebowski?”, “Is this your homework Larry?”).
  • A Creedence Clearwater Revival song is heard.
  • Walter mentions converting to Judaism.

3 Drinks

  • Donny goes offtopic in a conversation.
  • The Little Lebowski Urban Achievers are referenced (4 if it’s another merit).

Finish Your Drink

  • Walter not only says something angry, but he does something angry (i.e. the fight with the nihilists, pulling the gun on Smokey).
  • The Dude gets angry with the law (i.e. the private eye following him, the police station).
  • Philip Seymour Hoffman’s character laughs.
