A 12-Pack of 24

I present to you, my humble readers, in honor of Jack's return, a Twelve-Pack of 24, or 24: The Drinking Game. When any of the following things happen during the course of an episode, drink:

  1. Jack kills someone
  2. The double agent calls the terrorists
  3. The techies solve the problem just in the nick of time
  4. Jack does it his way instead
  5. Someone is tortured
  6. The terrorists speak on the news.
  7. A weapon of mass destruction is first revealed or deployed
  8. Someone who works for CTU dies, is taken into custody or otherwise forced to leave
  9. A terrorist commits suicide
  10. They do the three-way split-screen thing (no, 2- and 4-way don't count)
  11. Jack's love life interferes
  12. Someone reveals information just before they die

Still recovering from the 2 day drinking binge. Can't quite see straight. Good god I need another episode to make this feeling go away.

There was a 2 day drinking binge that I wasn't invited to?

So, if anyone played last night they probably didn't get very drunk. The only times they would've consummed would've been #1 Jack killed in self-defense, #8 Spencer was taken into custody and maybe #10. Could be that the game needs a few more rules.

Your listings
#1, #8, #10

Well #10 happened two times
Don't forget, the doctor died, so #8 happened two times
If you count Spencer as a double agent then #2 happened

So, counting all that, it was 6 drinks, which is a little better than the original assessment.
But we can still do much better next week.

Well, granted I forgot about the doctor BUT I don't recall Spencer calling the terrorists. Walt (if you count him as a terrorist) called Spencer and in this game it doesn't count.
