In the past, Flavorpill has brought you drinking games for some of our favorite shows, from True Blood to Mad Men to Glee . But even Don Draper would admit that there has never been a TV series that needs its own drinking game quite as much Skins. MTV’s American take on the controversial British series — which features teens doing drugs, having casual sex, and occasionally committing felonies — premieres tonight. We know that, in the spirit of these wild young things, you (and by that we mean, of course, those of you who are over 21) will want to be pretty intoxicated while watching it. Read the rules to our game after the jump, and be advised that hangovers tend to worsen as you age.

someone buys or sells drugs.
you hear a slang word you don’t understand.
Take a shot if…
