The Gargoyles Drinking Game

by Marie Conrad

Okay, so it isn't on at a time when you'd normally be drinking, let's just leave that aside for a moment. What you'll need:

  1. A bunch of tapes of Gargies isn't enough.
  2. An ample supply of your favorite beverage...milk, right?
  3. This list.

Drink once when:

  1. Gargoyles break out of their stone coverings
    Twice if they show all six of them doing it.
  2. Xanatos chuckles evilly or smirks.
  3. Owen makes a fastidious gesture.
  4. Gargoyles' eyes glow.
    Twice if they get the color wrong, i.e. a female gargoyle's eyes glow white.
  5. Elisa's gun gets used.
    Twice if it's not her using it.
  6. Demona rants about the "cursed humans."
    Twice if she isn't talking about Elisa.

  13. Lex fiddles with an electronic gadget.
    Twice if he doesn't spew technobabble while doing it.
  14. A flashback to Scotland occurs.
    Twice if almost the entire episode is a flashback.
  15. The Weird Sisters appear in an unusual form (the kind where the only giveaway is the hair color.)
  16. Goliath and Elisa have sexual tension.
    Twice if it's *really* blatant.
    Three times if there are verbal innuendoes.

    Twice if he does it after she just tried to kill him again.
  18. Goliath whines about losing home/honor/etc.

    Twice if the opponent is singularly unimpressed.
  20. Xanatos informs us of just how well things have gone exactly as he planned.
  21. Xanatos throws money around.
  22. Bronx gets to go along when the gargoyles fly off to fight.
  23. Something is foreshadowed.
  24. Someone besides Elisa or Goliath gets to fight with Demona.

  37. Some magical talisman changes hands for the umpteenth time.
  38. Fox and Xanatos make goo goo eyes at each other.
  39. A policeman besides Morgan is shown (Demona in disguise counts).

    Twice if you can't tell it's them before reading the credits.
    (Batya "The Toon" Levin)
  45. A NEW guest character is played by someone associated with Star Trek in any incarnation. (Someone who's been a guest character on ST, such as Matt Frewer, does not count unless it is a recurring character; John "Q" DeLancie would count. Oh, don't I wish.)
    Twice if it's someone who has already played a different guest character before.
    Three times if the role they play is recognizeably similar to the character they play on ST. (e.g., Majel Barrett playing a nurse, someone's mother, or the voice of a computer; Wil Wheaton playing a boy genius; et cetera.)
    Finish your Drink if it is Patrick Stewart.
    (Batya "The Toon" Levin)
  46. Take a drink when more than one gargoyle is out cold, and they wake up at the same time.
