This, of course, was inspired by many, many other 'Net drinking games. The best ones I've seen make sense, show what is strange or repetitive about a series, and go to outrageous, speculative lengths. Well, here goes my attempt at an Elfquest drinking game. As stated in the Disclaimer, my intent is not to sabotage the copyrights and properties of Warp Graphics, but merely to add an attempt at humor to the ranks of Elfquest-based fan material. Thanks for understanding. Now, just don't try this at home, cubs!
