Hamlet Drinking Game
Analysis suggests "drink" as an optimal word on which to drink.  v
RELATED
Drinking game criteria dictates using a word with frequency near the target number of drinks, which depends on drink concentration. In Hamlet that ranges from "absolute" (2) to "that" (389). If shots, in the 5-7 range would be reasonable adult non-heavy drinking number. Beer in contrast would need a common word. I've played with words in the 6-9 range (such as "wisdom" or "Hamlet") and a problem is they go by fast. So picking a higher frequency word makes sense, expecting to miss some. Conveniently the word "drink" occurs 15 times. This allows missing some, or drinking heavily. Furthermore, they're fairly distributed, culminating at the end with poisoned wine.
I therefore propose "DRINK" as an optimal word on which to drink as a drinking game during Hamlet.

Note that this is a simple count and sort by exact word, and does not consolidate variations (such as drinking/drank/drunk).
