Your Sunday: The (Unofficial) ‘Game of Thrones’ Drinking Game
“Game of Thrones,” which airs on Sunday nights on HBO, has a colorful web of complicated characters. Sure, they’re weird, dirty, and murderous, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t make a spectacle of them! Life is short (especially if you live in Westeros, am I right?), so let’s celebrate them with a drink…or a few.
We’re doing away with the flagrance and irresponsibility that accompanies drinking on a work night, and bringing you the (very unofficial) “Game of Thrones” drinking game. Your joy might, as Tyrion says, turn to ashes in your mouth Monday morning, but it will be worth it. Huzzah!
PREPARE YE SPORT
You receive bonus points for an authentic(-ish) beverage of choice. This includes mead (which you can actually buy in San Francisco), spiced wine, ale, or cider for ye lightweights. Should you so choose to indulge in a medieval libation such as these, you may demand that one other person in your party drinks every time you open a new bottle or pour another glass.
Drink once for every time:
Tyrion is a smart ass.
Cersei is spiteful. She will have this look on her face:
Sansa is weepy.
Someone is fully naked.
Whenever someone dies (whose name you don’t know or remember).
Daenerys yells at someone/a dragon/a crowd/a city in general.
Theon Greyjoy (currently going by “Reek”) flinches.
Petyr Baelish (Littlefinger) has a mustache.
Drink twice for every time:
Jon Snow proves that he actually does, in fact, know some things.
Someone mentions Jaime’s missing hand.
Samwell is dopey.
Drink three times for every time:
Arya kills someone.
Bran has a vision.
