Top Gun (1986) Drinking Game

Top Gun has been a staple in my life. It’s one of those movies that subconsciously ingrains itself inside you. For all of middle school, I thought that was actually how you made out (sorry 7th grade boyfriends). I knew I had met my best friend for life when racing go-carts she screamed, “I feel the need…” and I finished, “The need, for speeeeeeeed.” I even had the first line of my online-dating profile as, “Talk to me Goose.” You’d be surprised how many men responded with, “Duck?”. *condescending frown* Someday I dream my future husband will propose to me by singing, “You’ve lost that loving feeling…” I could go on forever about my love for the cowboys of the sky.

I’ve always wanted to make a drinking game to this movie, but my request for flybys had always been negative. So I asked another Top Gun enthusiast, the formal editor of UVM’s Water Tower.  He had a background in movie drinking game rules, so I knew I had come to the right place. He inspired some ideas and in the end- this is what I pulled together.

Take me to bed or lose me forever.

Drink every time…

  • Someone alludes to their penis/sexual innuendo
  • They high-five
  • Maverick is being rebellious/dangerous
  • Maverick’s dad is talked about/referred to
  • Sunglasses are worn

Death Rule

Drink every time a call sign is used.


That’s right Ice… Man. I AM dangerous. *CHOMP*

I have an active imagination and always pictured Val at every scene just chomping after every line and Tony Scott screaming, “Goddamn-it, Val!” “Awe, come on Tony! I promise it’ll be so cool!!!”
