X-Files News is on Archival Mode. Updates are on hiatus.

Alright Philes, it's time to talk alcohol. Many of you have played the old X-Files drinking game in the past, but with new episodes coming out, it's time for a refresher course. If you're planning on having too good of a time with fellow Philes during the new episodes, this is what you're going to need to know. We've condensed various iterations of the rules and put together the best set of drinking game rules that we can.

Obviously, please be responsible when using them. If you ever attempt Fight the Future, be extra careful because it's basically a death trap, not that we would know...And remember, hydration is key!
