Herere the rules:

1) Take a cup/glass/bowl or four of your favorite libation, alcoholic
or not. Im not much a fan of the stuff, but you should see me down a
keg of OJ (the drink, not the murderer). (Note: If you do choose to
use alcohol, please choose a designated typer, so that your posts dont
become as nonsensical as Interbots.)

2) Boot up ye old puter.

3) Connect to the internet.

4) For aol users: repeat step #3.

5) For aol users: repeat steps #3 and #4.

There ye be, folks. If you can still see straight, please e-mail me
and let me know what you think (if you can still do that, too). Let me
know if you want to have additional, updated versions of this Game sent
directly to you.

Please dont take offense if you are not mentioned in the game. If I
like you, its probably because I couldnt think of anything
appropriate to say about you. If I *dont* like you, youre probably
better off, anyway, because Id most likely insult you in some fashion.
Aint I a shtinker?

Warning: This Game should not have been read by the humor-impaired (you
know who you are), nor should it be taken internally. Keep it out of
the reach of children and Interbot.

Disclaimer: I do not promote alcohol consumption by minors. Heck, I
dont promote alcohol consumption by *anybody*. If you must drink, do
like I do and get a pitcher of your favorite citrus drink.

The preceding, the Alt.Toys.Transformers Drinking Game, version 1.0
is copyright of Andrius Schmid. Okay, I didnt really copyright it,
but if you rip it off, I will hunt you down and stick your mouse in a
very painful place (which I have not yet determined). This is a
parody of all other internet drinking games. If you wish to post all
or part of this Game in a public forum, please let me know first, so I
can contact my spies to see if you are deemed worthy.

If you have suggestions for additions to the Game, please e-mail me.
Remember, all suggestions must be A.T.T. related. I maintain the right
to edit, include, or not include any suggestions. If I do include your
suggestion, you will be credited.

Where to find this Game in the future: I will regularly post the most
current version of this Game on or around the first of each month. The
Alt.Toys.Transformers Drinking Game will also be posted upon request.
Updates will be posted whenever I see fit, usually in the case of an
alteration (not including spelling or punctuation changes) or addition.
Therefore, you do not necessarily need to read this again until version
1.1 or higher. I do not yet maintain a web page, but will probably
have this up on a site in the (near?) future. Everyone else can link
to that site, but I will probably not allow them to create their own
page. I will post the site location as soon as it is up and running.

Special thanks go to all those who are mentioned in the Game (and all
those who arent) for making A.T.T. a pleasant (or unbearable,
respectively) experience. I loves ya, gang.

Please send any and all suggestions/compliments/brutal verbal attacks
