The Drinking Game By: Andrea M. Winters, M.A., M.Ed., L.P.C.

The title for this game is slightly miss leading. This is actually an educational game to help prevent alcohol abuse in young adults just starting college.

Under the assumption that “play” is more fun than “work” – this game was designed to replace workshops and presentations formerly used to “teach” students about drinking. Instead, students play the game in teams, win prizes and in the process discover how, when and why they drink. The result: purposeful and conscious decisions around alcohol use.

We had the pleasure of working with Mrs. Winters on this game and wish her much success with it.
You can find more information about the game on their web site. The Drinking Game

Fun Fact: 
Research shows that students are at greatest risk of problematic drinking during the first few weeks of school when anxieties about fitting in and becoming comfortable are at their height. Playing "The Drinking Game" in Living and Learning Communities, First Year Residence Halls, and University 101 (or other Intro to College classes) provides a proactive approach to alcohol use and fosters student to student connection.
