The Only Drinking Game You Need for the Republican Presidential Debate

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Emory chapter.

What are you doing on October 28th at 8:00pm? Nothing? Perfect! Tune into CNBC to check out the Republican Debate. The last two were very entertaining—it’s clear all of the candidates have plenty to say!

For those who haven’t hit that milestone yet, you can have plenty of fun playing with soda or even ice cream. With that said, know your limits, drink (or eat) responsibly, and enjoy the show!
