Three mayoral candidates will take the stage Wednesday night for the final general election debate.

While Mayor Bill de Blasio has polled higher than all his challengers, Assemb. Nicole Malliotakis and former NYPD detective Bo Dietl haven’t dropped their fights to defeat him come Nov. 7.

After a raucous first general election debate where an unruly audience saw an attendee removed from the theater and the candidates shouted over each other, often cutting each other off and going over their time limits, what will happen at this final debate is anyone's guess.

To make the night more interesting, play this drinking game as you watch the debate, which will air on CBS 2 News and WLNY-TV 10/55 (in Spanish).
