The Always Macabre Tim Burton Drinking Game

This Tim Burton drinking game works for any movie or short directed by the macabre Tim Burton. Since most of his films carry similar themes (Death, lonliness, Standing out) it makes for some pretty great drinking rules. This makes for a great way to enjoy the Halloween season.

The idea of this game is simple. Just pick your favorite film directed by Burton and get ready to drink whenever any of these rules come up. We suggest trying it with some of his darker comedies like BeetleJuice or The Nightmare Before Christmas.

What You’ll Need To Play The Game

All you’ll need is any movie directed by Tim Burton and some drinks. A full list can be found here.
