Television Drinking Games: Friends

Tayler Critchlow

You know that trivia game from “Friends?” Wish I knew how to play…


“How about we play for more money, say $150?” – Monica
“One hundred and fifty dollars.” – Ross
“Say 200?” – Chandler
“Two hundred dollars.” – Ross
“I got it! How about if we win they have to get rid of the rooster.” – Monica
“Oohh that’s Interesting.” – Rachel
“Hey we are not giving up the rooster, he is family.” – Joey
“If you win we give up the bird, but if we win we get your apartment.” – Chandler
“Oooh” – Joey
“Deal!” – Monica

You know the one when the gang plays a trivia game and Rachel and Monica end up losing their apartment? Well the episode is actually called “The One with the Embryos,” but the apartment trivia bet is far more interesting.
Ok, so this is for those true “Friends” fans, and it can also be made into a drinking game.
The basis of the game is each team will have a total of ten questions spread out in the categories of “Fears and Pet Peeves”, “Literature”, “It’s all Relative”, and “Ancient History”.
The team to answer the most questions correctly wins. In the situation of the episode it was either getting the apartment or the rooster leaving. However, you can have yours be whatever you wish.
The way to make it a drinking game is simply. Each time a question is answered incorrectly the entire team must take a sip of your preferred drink of choice for every point the other team has.
Alright, below are the questions that were used but if you are a hardcore “Friends” fan then feel free to add in your own.
