    Top Ten Train Drinking Games

    Whether it’s to Oktoberfest, or Hogmanay, pass the time the Stoke Travel way

    It’s train season for Stoke Travel, with our London-Munich-London Oktoberfest trains just about ready to roll out, and the yearly pilgrimage to Edinburgh for their New Year’s Eve Hogmanay celebrations filling fast with party commuters.

    The fab thing about our trains, despite them being supreme value for money and a superior way to arrive at Europe’s best parties, is that they’re all ours! Like, nobody else but Stokies onboard, and so we can, almost, kind of, do what we want (within the realms of civil behaviour).

    So we use the trains to make little rolling parties. Little precursors to the madness the rails are leading us to. Stoke doesn’t officially throw these train parties, as we can’t really condone them, but we do turn an unseeing eye when y’all get on board with all manner of beverages and then set to consuming them on the outbound route (only the real hardcore drink on the way back home).

    So here are some little drinking games to get you nice and festive on your way to the world’s best festivals, tried and tested by the team at Stoke Travel.

    1. Tunnels of love
      Simply down a cup every time the train passes through a tunnel. We’ve got no idea how many tunnels there are on either journey, but most scholarship on the matter suggests that there’s a bloody lot of them.
    2. Churches
      The same as tunnels, but you drink every time you see a church spire. When you’re flying past villages this is very often. These games aren’t very imaginative, but they’re effective. Once on the high speed Paris-Amsterdam train we played churches and got so trashed that even looking at a joint made us vomit.
    3. Lowest card
      Go through your wallets and pull out all of your cards. Credit cards, business cards, train tickets, etc. Whoever has the most cards drinks. Whoever has the least, drinks. The person with the most pointless cards has to explain the usefulness of each, and then drinks. Finish your drink if you have expired condoms in your wallet.
    4. Tickets please
      Fold your train ticket in half and then put it on the ground. Take turns in bending over and trying to pick it up in your mouth, without using your hands. If you can do it, have a celebratory drink. If you can’t, drink to soothe the carpet burn you now have on your forehead.
    5. Thomas the Tank
      Everyone gets in their underwear and puts a tank top on. You start drinking heavily. Whoever looks like the biggest tank then becomes Thomas the Tank and they have to streak. Everybody’s doing it!
    6. Choo choo choose somebody
      Simply choose somebody and make them finish their drink. If they don’t want to, pressure them. If they still don’t want to, mock them. Be a bully.
    7. Steammming
      Just get really drunk and then go around telling everybody how you’re Steeeeeammmming. It’s not really a drinking game, but we’re running out of ideas here.
    8. Off the rails
      When the train stops, run off and try and buy more booze. Miss the train. End up living in Belgium.
    9. Mind the gap
      Not really a drinking game, but try not to fall between the train and the platform as that will mess you up more than any drinking game ever will.
    10. Booking your seat
      Do it now, because spaces are limited and it really is the best way to travel from London to Oktoberfest or Hogmanay.
