Pregame

verb; zero derivation
To drink alcohol before going to a planned event. To pregame means to start drinking alcohol before an event in an effort to be intoxicated upon arrival. Usually this happens when the event is either something very boring or expected to be boring, such as a party. The word is derived from the noun pregame, which is the time period before the “game”, or whatever is going to take place. Pregame can also be used in the athletic sense of preparing physically for an actual sporting event, which is where pregame in the sense of drinking alcohol comes from.
 
We need to start pregaming now if we’re going to have fun.
Etymology : Pregame (v). From English [Pregame (n). PRE- (before) + game from Old English ‘gamen’.]
