You’ve figured out your costume. Jammed out to the FYA Hunger Games Survival Mix. Prepared delicious themed cocktails and food. Argued incessantly about Peeta vs. Gale. Oh yeah, and spent OVER A YEAR WAITING FOR THIS FREAKING MOVIE TO COME OUT ALREADY!

Well, Tributes, that day is finally here! The Hunger Games is hitting screens at midnight tonight, and there’s one more thing you need to do to be utterly and totally prepared for your movie experience: print out this drinking game. And then apply it. Liberally. (After choosing a designated driver, obvs!)

Trust us: if you follow our heavily researched rules carefully, the odds will most definitely be in your favor. Your liver, on the other hand, may not survive the Games. (Here at FYA HQ, we’ve trained ours to be Careers.)
