Comments



  • We do something similar but without the pub specific rules.

    20 mins per pub, pints only for guys, girls whatever they like.
    Toilet every second pub.
    Food ad libitum but only in your own time.
    Safety pints accepted; doubling up in one pub means you can skip the other.

    We usually do two; one on Baggot Street and the other a lap of Trinity. Doing the Baggot Street one on the 19th.




  • I get too comfy in the pub to be moving every time i've a drink!




  • I like to stay put in one pub too.




  • Rules? pfft, just go to 12 pubs, one drink in each, last man standing wins




  • effort. pub games and drinking games have never appealed to me, seems to be a very British thing from visiting mates over there. I prefer a good night out with mates and good beer, where each others company is the entertainment, not "who can get the most drunk and get us thrown out of a pub."

  • Christ OP, by the time you finish reading the rules you'd be pissed.

    yep, drinking games are for the type of people you'd see wandering around temple bar with zogabonds on thinking they're a bit "bonkers"

    If a group of twits walked into a bar doing this...I'd leave..
    Sounds like a british stag tbh..




  • we normally attempt this on st. stephens day.usualy gets fcuked up though,5 groups start off in different pubs and the groups end up crossing paths and joining up,then some groups end up doing pubs twice.but it's great craic.looking forward to it this year.

  • Not my kind of thing either. In line with most of you, I am not into pub games and would prefer to stick with one pub too. I just found it a bit funny to see what these crazies were doing, so I managed to get a copy of the rules. These guys were Irish and apparently were in pub 10, although it wasn't on their list. So it must have come under rule F. A few were well on, but some weren't too bad.




  • Did this last year. Too much effort. If I went to 6 pubs on a regular night out id be pushing the boat out, 12 is just mad. So for lazy people, 6 pubs and 2 drinks in each. The 12 Drinks of Xmas.




  • We do this every year, on year four this year! We always do it on Christmas Eve, we've t-shirts organised with the names of the pubs in order of when we visit them! 30 minutes per pub, 1 drink per pub! They're the only two rules and it's immense fun! Think we've up on 30 joining us this year!!




  • there's rules? :rolleyes:

    you just made it very very lame.




  • Im doing one on the 22nd when everyones finished their exams but not with all those rules... just 12 pubs, 12 pints, 30 mins each. Although i do like the idea of a forfeit.... :)




  • only two rules: last person to finish their pint carries the Rock of Shame. first person to finish wears the Hat of Triumph.




  • yea we're doing one the 18th as well. have done it every year for the last 3 or 4 years so its starting to become a bit of a tradition, and is always a good laugh...we keep the rules to a minimum though, just drink our pints in a half hour and hit the next pub!




  • We do it every year as well, approx 100 of us from work!

    Some people join in anywhere along the way, while there are the die hards that do the full 12. Its a great night out and great way to get to know other people from work :)




  • We had planned to do it on the 18th but the match kinda ruined that idea.




  • Doing one saturday in Kilkenny and we've ~100 up for it. Should be very messy. My only rule, "Avoid A&E".

  • In Cork we call this the Barrack Street challenge, except without all those rules, just simply a drink in every pub on the street, which is about 11 or 12 these days. Used to be a real challenge before with 20 pubs on the street, or so the legend goes...

    In Cork folks would know that there were never 20 pubs on Barrack Street and that a few years back there were one or two that were no go pubs. Many of the pubs that the pub crawl would have encompassed would be on Bandon Road ;)




  • How shameless is that ^^^^^^^^ for a first post ?

    And a double post too.




  • 7,238 posts and you necro-ed a thread from 2010?




  • A spammer dragged up this thread, they've been nuked along with all their posts so I think we can leave this here.
