BGH Thirsty Thursdays - "Circle" Drinking Game

Here at Bloody Good Horror we spend much of our time talking about good movies and bad movies alike, and picking apart the things that place titles in either category. In horror specifically, there is a beautiful gradient, comprised of everything from "so bad it's good" to "just plain bad." For many movies in this grey area, the viewing experience itself - who you watch it with and how - can be as important as the movie itself. In that tradition, every first Thursday of the month we'll fondly recall one of those kinds of movies that seem made for the loud and alcohol-fueled viewing party, and give you the framework to host a screening of your very own, complete with imbibing instructions!

Note: BGH reminds you to respect the minimum age requirement for drinking in whatever god forsaken hellhole you live in.


The concept of a group of strangers being trapped together and forced to choose the fate of the people around them is not novel. We have seen it play out time and time again to varying degrees of success. At its center (see what I did there?) this is exactly what Circle is about. There are fifty strangers in a room, with no memory of how they got there. Every two minutes, someone dies. Each person's fate rests in the hands of the people standing around them. With this many stereotypes - I mean people - in one room, what could possibly go wrong?

 

Rules:

  • Drink when you correctly guess the next character to die.
  • Drink when you find it impossible to believe any given character has not been killed yet.
  • Take a swig whenever the stereotype presented is so off as to genuinely make you question if the writers have ever actually interacted with people before. 
  • Drink because holy shit there's a child down there!
  • Raise a glass whenever anyone in your party announces their own strategy for surviving the Circle.
