  • Take a shot if the custom tool you made is inferior to a vanilla one you can get at the same time.

    Streams and Let's Plays 
  • One shot per Rage Quit.
    • Take another if they get so mad on the scarecam that they actually break something.
    • Take another if there's someone else in the scarecam with them who promptly laughs their asses off.
  • Take a shot when someone dies in Hardcore; a respectful one if it was just bad luck and a mocking one if it was a really stupid mistake.
  • Take one shot if someone loses their Diamonds (or their life) to lava because they didn't mine around them first.
  • A shot for every time someone dies by breaking one of the basic survival rules (don't dig straight down, don't go up to a cliff edge without checking behind you for Creepers, be super careful around lava, always watch for pits when mining in the Nether, etc). Take another one if it wasn't a noob, but an experienced player who really should have known better.
  • Related to the above, take a shot every time you find yourself yelling "IDIOT!" at the screen.
  • In streams, take a shot if they die because of bad advice from chat.
  • A shot when someone accidentally throws an item into lava. Two if it was Diamond equipment. Three if it was enchanted Diamond equipment.
  • Take a shot when someone dies in Hardcore in a way that they can see it coming and fly into a panic, ie being trapped by mobs or sinking in lava.
  • Take a shot when someone is cock-of-the-walk in their enchanted Diamond gear...then panics when they see a Witch.
  • A shot whenever someone has exceptionally bad luck, ie getting caught between two Creepers in a tunnel, being blown up by a mob falling into a Pyramid treasure chamber, getting pushed off a cliff by a random cow, etc.
  • Take a shot if someone starts talking to the viewers and is so caught up in it they get surprised by a Creeper.
  • A shot every time someone accidentally burns down or blows up their own house.
  • Laugh and take a shot if someone accidentally kills their pet...then take a shameful sip if it actually makes them cry.
