The Windows 8 Launch Drinking Game

Ben Rubenstein Ben Rubenstein Profile: Ben Rubenstein

As you’ve no doubt heard by now, Microsoft will launch the Windows 8 Consumer Preview on Wednesday at an invitation-only event during the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. While there will reportedly be no live feed of the announcement, we’re pretty sure that details will leak out one way or another over the course of the day.

During the inevitable onslaught of buzzwords, why not get a little bit of a buzz? Our Windows 8 launch drinking game is a handy way to keep tabs on this major event, and have a little fun doing it. The rules are simple – whenever you read or hear one of the words listed below on Wednesday, take the appropriate drink (of coffee or tea, naturally; the event starts at 3 p.m. Barcelona time, which is 9 a.m. EST/6 a.m. PST — even the biggest Microsoft fans don’t party that hard).

Got a word to add to the list, or just don’t want to drink alone? Drop us a line on Twitter @WindowsTT (hashtag: #win8buzz).
