Round three of Democratic presidential debates is here, and we know how to make it a little more interesting.

Unlike the past two debates, Thursday’s will only be one night with 10 of the 2020 hopefuls. It will be hosted by ABC News and Univision at Texas Southern University.

Whether you’re hosting friends or hanging at a bar, have some fun with this debate drinking game.

Who’s on stage: Former Vice President Joe Biden, New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Former Housing Sec. Julián Castro, California Sen. Kamala Harris, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar, Former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Entrepreneur Andrew Yang

Take a drink if:

  • There are any audio problems.
  • Sanders and Warren avoid criticizing each other.
  • A candidate turns a question on policy into an attack on Trump.
  • Only one candidate raises their hand for a yes or no question.
  • A candidate accuses another of using "Republican talking points."
  • A candidate curses.
  • You have to Google who a candidate is.
  • A candidate speaks in Spanish.
  • Biden says "malarkey."
  • Trump tweets about the debate.
  • A moderator or candidate mispronounces "Buttigieg."
  • A candidate rolls their eyes in response to an attack from another candidate.
