    I read that as Eurovision = Meth and thought "well that's one way of coping I guess."

    I've watched every year since 1967 (Puppet on a String) and I've yet to pick the winner. I did predict Jemini would get nul points with Cry Baby. This year I think Germany will win with Cascada - Glorious. It's the highlight of the TV year.

    Pick a nation (except your own) make a five litre box of suspiciously strong fruit punch. And take a drink for every single point your nation collects! It soon becomes a great night!
    Surely though, that means you don't drink throughout the tedious, vomit inducing singing (which is the worst part), then get battered for the remaining 20 or so minutes while people in each country just read the results out?

    You have pre drinks during the comedy singing and then in the hour or so that it takes to get the scores in you get utterly trollied. It makes the whole thing worth while. Unless like my missus, you accidentally pick the winner. In which case you might be off to A&E instead!

    I'd rather neck a 2L bottle of Vodka before the show starts and get rushed off to A&E for alcohol poisoning than watch Eurovision...

    played this game once when was round a friends house and it happened to be on. We played with these rules...

    Everyone has to be drinking pints to play the game.

    1. Everytime your chosen country is mentioned, drink two fingers of the glass
    2. Nobody is allowed the UK so when it gets mentioned drink four fingers
    3. If your country wins you have to down a pint of mixed drinks from every player. (not nice when everyone is drinking different drinks!)
    4. If a non English speaking country as its first language sings in English then drink a finger.
    5. If any of the presenters change outfits during the show then drink half a pint.
    6. make up any as we go along.

    Thats the only time ive watched it and had more fun with all the fun we had drinking than actualy watching it.

    If you're really clever you'll get someone to count all the drinking you need to do then you can talk to others who dont like it either.

    Whilst not EuroVision, have a look at my London 2012 Games Maker friend Cassidy, and her Super Bowl 2013 Drinking Game
    the OFFICIAL Super Bowl Drinking Game - YouTube

    (I am sure it can be easily adapted for EuroVision!)

    She is just full of life (or Mountain Dew!) and her VLOG'ing skills are fantastic.

    This. Despite the BBC's best efforts to make us all 'good Europeans serving the Dear Leaders' by getting rid of Terry Wogan and overhyping this dull battle of rigged voting, it's a crap event and I would only watch it if I was playing the Eurovision drinking game.
