NerdWallet’s Vice Presidential Debates Drinking Game below lays out what to look forward to in the Paul Ryan vs. Joe Biden debates this Thursday, October 11 at 6pm PT/9pm ET. As Joe Biden and Paul Ryan prepare to face off for the Vice Presidential Debates, you too need to prepare – to drink, that is.

As mentions of Big Bird and the 47% of America abound, we can’t help but wonder what Joe Biden is going to say in response to all the craziness that’s been going on in politics this month. If you wonder the same thing, then this is the VP debates drinking game for you.

Our Vice Presidential Debates Drinking Game breaks down the best Joe Biden gaffes and Paul Ryan hiccups of all time, so you can nerd out in style while you sip your beer – or take your shot:

Sick of playing your typical drinking games and in need of something new as we gear up for the VP Debates this Thursday, October 11? Sick of your old favorite, remember the Kings drinking game? Kings, Flip Cup, Quarters, and all the other top college drinking games are no match for us this week!

Who Is Going To Win The Election?
Believe it or not, how much you drink on Thursday won’t determine the election outcome, sadly. Rather, the victor of this year’s race between Obama-Biden and Romney-Ryan will come down to one number: the 270 electoral votes it will take to win the Electoral College.

NerdWallet’s statistical election prediction model finds that because of the way the electoral map is drawn, Mitt Romney’s election odds are only at 23%. Updated daily with the most recent polling data, the electoral model shows how, if current polls are as accurate as historical polls have been, only a few key battleground states are really at play right now in determining the next U.S. president.
