There are many TV and movie based drinking games on the web, and since there are many aspects of The Monkees television show that are in multiple episodes, I decided that a drinking game would definitely work in almost all of the 58 episodes. The only two episodes where you really couldn't do this drinking game are "Monkees on Tour" and "Monkees in Paris" since it's not in episode format and they barely talk and what not. But this is just for fun, ok?
I realize that there are many young Monkee fans that are not of drinking age, so for this game, your beverage of choice does not have to be alcoholic. Root beer or fruit punch or water or anything can work, though it is more fun under the influence of something.
So, pop in an episode of your choice (I will note whether or not each activity is more related to first season or second season) and have fun watching The Monkees with your friends.
