This game was originally featured on KCWindham's Totally Tubular TMNT Site back in the late 90s. The rules have been updated as of February 8, 2014. To play you will need a couple of friends and some episodes of the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon on either VHS cassette or DVD. The game doesn't work too well with episodes from the red-sky seasons (see the Cartoon Season Showcase), so you'll want to avoid them. Granted drinking games are most popular among the college crowd, but if you're underage or just don't feel like getting hammered, soft drinks like Coke or Dr. Pepper work just as well. Drink and/or shout as directed below!
