Episode 1142: There Was a Terrible Ghastly Silence

<<FIRST     <PREVIOUS     NEXT>     LATEST>>

"Last drinks" is the call by a barkeep to indicate that it's almost closing time, and patrons should order their last drink for the evening. It can be adopted into many styles of game as a mechanism for converting a pleasant evening in a tavern into a bar room brawl if, against all reason, one has not yet broken out. If the call of "last drinks" itself does not set off the hair-trigger for the inevitable brawl, simply have the barkeep state that there are only enough drinks left for half the people in the bar.
