Nice! I have a set with the pieces etched into them. The only problem is that unless you're playing with light lager, you can't see what your own pieces are.

So, how does the game work?  When a piece is "taken,"  who has to empty the glass?  I suppose you could switch it up depending on how you want to handicap the game (i.e., so that the player who is winning becomes more impaired as the game goes along).  Do you use "imperials" or tripels for the more "valuable" pieces?  Mixed drinks or liquor for kings & queens?

I like the idea of making the person that takes the piece the one who drains the glass, especially if the high value pieces have the high octane booze in them.

Yeah, like the Romulan ale King and Queen on the amber side . . .

I say the opposite. Loser drinks. It adds to the cycle of self-destruction.
