Closely linked to the nachspiel it is a party taking place before you go out on the town. usually taking palce in a private residence the object of the vorspiel is to socialise with friends while getting drunk and saving money by not having to drink as much when out on the town.

striktly translated from german it means forplay in a sexual meaning, but has been adoped by nordic countries as a party term.
