Greg’s Cheers to Gaming: Drink King

/ Oct 14th, 2016 No Comments

Sneak King

Throughout time, man has pondered ways to make videogames more enjoyable. Like most things, alcohol was the answer. Greg’s Cheers to Gaming is a series of pieces in which editor Greg Johnson combines gaming with alcohol to make an even more interesting game.

2006 was an exciting year: the UK had its first case of bird flu, North Korea claimed to have conducted its first nuclear test, and Burger King released a trio of video games, the most notable of which was Sneak King.

In Sneak King, players take on the role of the Burger King himself. The objective is to deliver burgers to hungry folks scattered around different levels without being seen. It’s basically a family-friendly version of Hitman.

While the game is absolutely perfect, Sneak King was missing one major ingredient of an excellent Burger King experience: booze. So, in the spirit of Halloween, we bring you one of the creepiest games ever created and a drinking game to play along with it: Drink King.

The Sneaky King

Sneak King isn’t just awkwardly delivering burgers … actually, it is. That is all the game is about.

Players must surprise NPCs that have a burger icon above their head, which can be done in one of two ways. You can sneak up from behind or jump out of hiding places and environmental elements to deliver burgers.
 

Sneak King

Here comes The King…

Do I pop out from a bush to startle the mailman with a piece of chargrilled goodness? Or do I come upon a business woman from behind and delight her with a decadent piece of meat and cheese while she’s coming home?

Delivering a burger is done with a button press, which then prompts a quick mini-game requiring a constantly moving slider to be stopped with another press of the button. The slider must be stopped as close to full as possible, and this is the only real skill required in the game.

Not A Big Mac

Before you play Drink King, there are some excellent drinks that partner perfectly with Sneak King’s themes. Remember: you’re drinking with the king, so if none of these mixed drinks suit you, just have it your way.

The King

  • 1/4 whiskey
  • 1/4 tequila
  • 1/4 vodka
  • 1/4 gin
  • A lemon peel around the rim for a “crown”

My Way

  • Molson Coors King Cobra beer
  • Splash of steak sauce

Your Way

  • 1/2 peach schnapps
  • 1/2 Jägermeister
  • One cherry

Note: this drink is meant to be chugged!

Sneaky Burger

  • 1/2 Ol’ Major Bacon Bourbon
  • 1/2 Hefeweizen beer
  • Flavor with Naked Jay Big Dill Vodka
  • Pair with Kerrygold Aged Cheddar (with Irish Whiskey)

Also, don’t forget to grab some Burger King. I’d personally recommend a classic burger and fries combo — that’s what The King would want.

The King’s Way, The King’s Rules

Now that some interesting drinks have been assembled, it’s time to dive into the rules.

Each player must start the game by gently kissing both their food and drink. This begins with one player saying aloud “A Kiss for the king!” All players must respond back: “I hope the king’s kiss has satisfied you m’lord.” Saying all of this in a Sean Connery accent isn’t necessary, but it does add a lot.

Once gameplay has commenced, players drink when the following occurs:

– A player successfully delivers a burger as The King. Everyone must yell “huzzah,” then drink.
– A player fails to deliver a burger as The King. Everyone must yell “boo,” then drink.
– An NPC spots The King. Everyone must yell “Away scallywag!,” then drink.
 

Sneak King

Maybe you purposefully get caught, you rascal you!

If anyone fails to properly respond, that is considered breaking the rules and that person is named “The King’s Fool.” For the remainder of the evening or until a new fool is crowned, anytime the fool begins to speak, any player may interrupt with “Quiet fool, court is in session!” The fool must then hang his/her head and take a drink — with great sadness, of course.

The King’s Fool may lose their foolishness (no longer be the fool) by successfully delivering a burger as The King. No one may deny the fool ample opportunities to do so.

Sneak Responsibly

The King’s greatest fear is that his subjects will drink irresponsibly, so do your king proud. Don’t drink and joust, drink with friends, and always have a meal prepared. We’re not commoners, after all.

Now, three cheers to Sneak King and three more for Drink King. Away with you now!
