So many bottles

I posted a picture last night. pyr8queen  and I are shuffling things around in Tortuga-on-Venice and we replaced my (very nice, but small) bar with the incredible, ornate, and of course, nautical/piratey one that she built herself. It's a lovely piece of furniture, and it was already full of her own wine and liquor. And naturally my own bar was well-stocked.

So the first step was getting all the bottles out of mine, and swapping the two. Which meant we had all our bottles out of their respective bars. And I took that picture. That was...a sobering (ha ha) view of just how much liquor and wine we have between the two of us. There's only one possible answer, of course, which is to drink down as much of it as possible to reduce the number of bottles we own. That way we can be SURE we're not drinking too much. Otherwise, we might.

You like drinking. You like games.

I think the answer is obvious.

And because I like researching period games, here's a 15th century Spanish game with a drinking variant. It's actually a really fun half-strategy half-luck game. And you can play on a chessboard (just block off 1 column and 1 row).

The drinking variant is actually the opposite of most drinking games. You compete for the priveledge of drinking (which I like), rather than being "punished" with drinking (which can lead to a unhealthy downward spiral in some drinking games).

It plays fast, though. I would recommend taking small sips and using mixers.

You might try adding a strip varient. Every time you clear 4 in a turn (which is hard to do) your opponent loses and article of clothing. Or if you are in a hurry to get naked, strip on 3's, which are easy to come by.

Enjoy.

well, the obvious solution would be to have a "drink the bar!" party. hide the Good Stuff (tm) that you want to keep, but anything else that's below half-empty, or that you just want to get drunk up, put it on the bar. and play that drinking game from the comments above.
