Catching title isn’t it? Well, let us explain. About two months ago we were searching the web for new information about our major hobby drinking. Through we found an application called Drinking Wars. Well, we are always in for trying new stuff and any game where you get points for drinking a lot sounds like our cup of tea (matter of speaking of course, we like beer). Especially when you have a drink in real life whenever you do so in the game. In the end we must conclude that it was a bitter disappointment. Be glad about it: we played it so you don’t have to.
Now we won’t get too deep into the details of the game, don’t worry. But we owe it to the makers of the game to give a small description of their creation. When we started 2 months ago it was still slightly interesting since the game was new. But by now we can say that it is exactly the same as other Facebook games like Mafia Wars for example. But instead of digital mob jobs you have to drinking challenges like beer pong. For a certain amount of energy points you get a number of experience points back. Winning fights against other players are another way to get more experience. With these experience points you can level up and open new drinking challenges. And by buying several kinds of items you can increase your strength to fight people. You can practically go on forever like this.
Now we played this game to the very respectable (definitely if you count the amount of time we wasted) level 115. We went from Las Vegas to Munich and now to Mexico, but didn’t really found a lot of excitement anywhere. It is a way to kill time, nothing more, nothing less. And than we saw there are people with level 50.000. We assume they are locked somewhere in Guantanamo Bay or a North Korean Basement, those poor bastards. What sick maniac would torture people like this?
So consider this not only a warning, but also a lesson in drinking morale. This game represents everything that drinking should not be about, since you are sitting alone behind your computer at home fighting other people. While true drinking should always be about socializing, even when home alone. So better pick your drinking battles somewhere in real life. Cheers!
