Could “Hammertime”, a drinking game created by Australian law students, go global this summer?



Step 1 — Find the judge.

Step 2 — Request an appeal.

Step 3 — Approach the bar.

Step 4 — Make your submission (the appellant pays costs).

Step 5 — Drink.

Step 6 — Defeat the judge (by downing the pint faster than him) and the appeal is allowed.

Step 7 — At which point a handing over of the judicial wig and gavel takes place.

Here is further clarification of the “Hammertime” rules when the game is played among a group.
