The presidential and vice presidential debates are coming up quick, with the first one on tomorrow, Wednesday 10/3. What are the best debate bingo cards and drinking games you've seen this season?

I haven't been following the run-up terribly well, but I figure it's worth a shout-out to my friends Tom and Dori and this first 2012 incarnation of their long-running JavaScript Presidential Debate Bingo Cards

I'm going to drink 1) every time romney condescends to the audience/moderator and 2) every time obama says something that'll be taken out of context by foxnews the next day

I suggest a drink for every time Obama says, "Let's be clear."

I still think this bingo game would be fun, but I haven't gotten around to making it yet.

Salvor - Get me clean copies of the icons + any required permissions, and I'd have it for you in a jiffy.

Every time Obama says "make no mistake" (in his eerily Bush-like way).

Every time Romney says "net-net."

Every time Obama starts an answer with "Look..."

Every time Romney says "I spent my life in the private sector."

My friends and I started one that's great because it works with every politician ever- and since we started doing so it really pops out for me when I see somebody doing it.

Drink every time somebody makes this hand gesture- the extended fist, thumb long on top with index finger slightly pushed out, fist raised and lowered on emphasis of speaking.

WARNING: alcohol poisoning is a thing. This hand gesture will ruin you.

i always like just putting a mustache on the screen and drinking when it lines up with someone's face.

I would think taking a drink every time someone says some little nugget of wisdom directly from the party playbook.

I'll drink every time a candidate raises due process concerns.

I don't drink.

There are some good ones here that let you generate as many variants as you need.
