The “Battlestar Galactica” finale is upon us, but save your tears for Friday. Now’s the time to marathon the entire series, to really hunker down and try to make sense of it all. Har. Not. The better way to celebrate is to partake in our unofficial BSG drinking game, which we suggest playing with Ellen Tigh’s fluorescent beverage of choice Ambrosia (Gatorade, in a pinch) or the strong brown stuff favored by Admiral Adama (tea, if you’re really committed to plowing through all 70 hours).
Glasses raised? Here we go! So say we all. (Stefano Paltera / For The Times)
Every time Gaius is talking to imaginary Six and another character looks at him like he’s loony.
We believe she’s real, Gaius! (Carole Segal / Sci Fi Channel)
Every time Admiral Adama cries.
Chug twice if he drools while doing it. (Carole Segal / Sci Fi Channel)
Every time Anders gets rejected by Starbuck.
Is it wrong to continue to root for him? True, he’s bald now, and his lifeless, mechanical body is rigged to the ship, but he was and is still more of a man than Lee any day. (Carole Segal / Sci Fi Channel)
Every time anyone yells “Gods damnit!” (NBC Universal)
Every time someone on the show takes a drink. (NBC Universal)
If you think Tory is a good replacement for Billy.
We’re not sure we want you to play anymore. No, we haven’t forgotten that Tory eventually and mercifully rids us of Cally, but Billy’s death was tragic. (Justin Stephens / Sci Fi Channel)
Shout the character you think she is: Eight, Sharon, Athena or Boomer.
If you’re correct, hand your drink to someone who got it wrong. (Carole Segal / Sci Fi Channel)
Every time someone says “toaster.”
If you actually bought one of these NBC-made Cylon toasters, stand up for your toast. All should know you’re the one who went a little too far. (Zoic Studios)
Every time you look at President Roslin and think, “That Admiral Adama is one lucky dude.”
Go ahead and toss back another every time you think Mary McDonnell was robbed of an Emmy nomination last year. (Carlos Chavez / Los Angeles Times)
If you’re bummed to discover that Ellen is the last member of the Final Five.
Hello? What are you thinking? It makes perfect sense! (Carole Segal / Sci Fi Channel)
Every time you think you hear Jamie Bamber’s British accent.
Yeah, that’s next to never. Instead, drink every time you want to laugh after Lee turns politician. (Carole Segal / Sci Fi Channel)
Every time you wonder why more people watch “Lost.” (Mario Perez / ABC)
Every time you’re weirded out by the late-blooming Saul-Six relationship.
Where the frak did that come from?! (Carole Segal / Sci Fi Channel)
Every time Starbuck has a mood swing.
Yes, every time. (Carole Segal / Sci Fi Channel)
If you, at any point, find yourself thinking about Ron Moore’s luscious mane in a jealous fit. (NBC Universal)
Every time you hear the term “skinjob” and it creeps you out. (Carole Segal / Sci Fi Channel)
