The Three Musketeers Drinking Game

Editor’s note: Don’t forget Bryan Adams/Rod Stewart/Sting’s collaborative single from the soundtrack, “All for Love.”

All for one, and one for all!

When my mom made my brothers and I watch “The Three Musketeers” (1993) as kids, I thought she was crazy. Little did I realize the genius in her, embedding in me values like, “all for one and one for all!”, and learning valuable skills such as, “the art of wenching”. A film with Charlie Sheen as the musketeer telling others to “go with God”, Kiefer Sutherland as the musketeer who is haunted by his broken heart, and Chris O’Donnell playing the feisty D’Artagnan, living out his dream of being a musketeer!!! If you drank every time I wrote “musketeer” or “D’Artagnan” in that sentence, you’re already on your A-Game.

Esteban and I argue whether this or “Last of the Mohicans” is the best drinking game. I would argue that LOTM is the best, but that “The Three Musketeers” is, by far, the most absurd. The reason? You can get shit-faced playing with only the death rule. The first time I played was with my older brother/author of this great website, and all we had in the house was a variety pack of Mike’s Hard lemonades (Mama only made that mistake once). We came up with five rules total. We were obviously underestimating the musketeers, because halfway through the movie we were literally in tears. Mostly because of the sugar from the Mikes’… but little did we know what the musketeers had in store for us.

I could not be more honored to share my favorite drinking game of all time with Esteban’s followers.

Drink every time...

  • There is a reference to the motto “All for one, and one for all!”
  • There is any physical injury
  • Cardinal Richelieu makes a pass at the queen
  • Porthos mentions a gift/weapon given to him by someone important/made up

DEATH RULE XXX (frankly the only rule you need)

  • Drink every time someone says “Musketeer” or “D’Artagnan”.

    You thought your mom was crazy at the ripe bold age of 4?
