OBJECTIVE: We aimed to quantify the degree to which students pre-gamed in New Zealand, using self-report and breathalysers.

We asked participants to report how many drinks they had consumed, their self-reported intoxication and the duration of their pre-gaming session. We then recorded participants' Breath Alcohol Concentration (BrAC; µg/L) and the time they arrived at the event...
