Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer (1964) Drinking Game

Rudolph Drinking Game

The Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer Drinking Game has players drinking to the classic 1964 claymation movie of the same name.┬áNarrated by Sam the snowman this film follows Rudolph through his adventures to finally be accepted by Santa and the other reindeer and find his spot on Santa’s sleigh. This quickly spirals out of control when his parents and Clarise get kidnapped and it’s his job to save them from a carnivorous snow man.

This classic claymation film will probably always be heralded as the most classic Christmas movie of all time. Even close to 60 years after it’s released it can still be seen on television screens across the world around the holiday season. And since you’ll probably be watching it this Christmas anyway you may as well grab a few beers and make the experience even better!

Players will drink one whenever any of the common themes repeat throughout the movie. In addition to that players must continue to chug their drink as long as Rudolph’s nose is lit up on screen.

Rudolph The Red Nose Reindeer Drinking Game Rules:

Drink one when

  • Someone mentions Christmas
    • Drink twice if it’s mentioned in a song
  • Yukon tosses his axe
  • A Christmas song starts
  • Santa says something mean
  • You hear “ho ho ho”

Chug as long as

  • Rudolph’s nose is lit up

The only very commonly occurring rule to drink one here is the mention of Christmas as it’s repeated almost every other sentence in the movie. Having to chug your drink for Rudolph’s nose being lit up will prove to be difficult because as the movie progresses you’ll see his nose light up for longer and longer periods of time. The Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer drinking game is a great way to pass the time during the holiday season.
