How To Play The Ultimate National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation The Drinking Game
Everyone should try to get into the Christmas mindset. We suggest drinking spiked eggnog and playing Christmas music while players are getting settled in. If you have a fireplace, build a fire… you get the idea. Make it as Christmas-y as you want!
Start playing the movie once everyone’s ready. Drink about 1oz each time you drink and take a swig whenever:
· The swimming pool is talked about.
· Clark has donned a sports-related article of clothing.
· Ellen calls Clark by a pet name.
· Someone’s wearing an ugly sweater.
· A hair piece appears on screen.
· Clark’s bonus is talked about.
· Cousin Eddie annoys Clark.
· Clark puts others at risk in his quest for the perfect Christmas.
· A person or pet messes with the Griswold Christmas Tree.
· A calendar door is opened.
· Clark has an awkward moment.
· Someone calls Rusty “Rus.” Take two drinks if they yell it.
· Clark has the super intense “crazy eyes.”
· Every time the neighbors grumble.
· Cousin Eddie says something that’s just plain weird.
· Aunt Bethany appears on screen. Take an extra drink if she speaks.
· Mary shows up on screen.
· There is singing, Christmas bells, or holiday music playing in the background.
· Todd and Margo’s stuff get ruined…by Clark.
· A new family member/s shows up at the Griswold’s home.
If you’re playing with a slightly competitive group, create a list of the rules and put them in plain sight of everyone for easy referencing. This is a social movie drinking game, so the focus is to have fun. But we get it – sometimes the fun is in the competition.

Russ!- At any point during the game, a player can point at a another play and say “Russ!” If the other player doesn’t say “I’m right here, Dad”, they have to take a drink.
Power Grid- Each player must finish their entire drink when Clark pulls down the power grid.
Penalty Drink- Any player caught not drinking according to the rules has to down the rest of their beer/eggnog/wine/etc.
Drink Mirroring- Oh, movie drinking games. So many opportunities to hardcore drink. Players must finish their drink each time a character finishes their drink.
Frank Shirley Rule- The first player to shout “Get me somebody! And get me somebody while I’m waiting!” as soon as Frank Shirley shows up on screen for the first time gets to tell a player of their choosing to finish their drink.
Knock Knock- The player who beats all others to the punchline and, while using the exact gestures as in the movie, says “Knock on the door, peek in” dolls out two drinks to other players.
Santa Hat- The Santa hat gets passed around as an added twist in this movie drinking game! Players who forget to drink have to wear the hat until it gets passed on to another player. Players who misquote any line from the movie also must wear it. The person wearing the Santa hat at the end of the movie must chug their entire drink.
