Everyone will already be crying come Sunday night watching the premiere of the final season of “Game of Thrones” on HBO, so why not add alcohol to the equation? Proceed with caution, though, because this game will get you drunker than Tyrion Lannister.
To stay on theme, we recommend drinking official “Game of Thrones” wine or beer, or even White Walker Whiskey, while playing this game.
Take a sip:
Whenever someone is addressed as milord/lady
If anyone refers to the “King in the North” or “Khaleesi”
You forget a character’s name
Jaime kills someone
Cersei plots revenge
Anyone says the word “house”
Take a shot if:
Jon Snow and Daenerys sleep together again
The dragons fight each other
A main character loses a limb
Any of your friends says “it didn’t happen that way in the books”
Finish your drink when:
There’s a sex scene
One of your favorite characters dies
Arya crosses a name off her kill list
You hear the words “winter is here”
Chug the entire bottle if:
The Night King sits on the Iron Throne
Pour one out for:
All of your favorite characters who have fallen
To add some extra fun, assign all the friends at your watch party to be a member of a certain house (Stark, Lannister, Baratheon or Targaryen) and have them drink when their house is mentioned.
So grab your Valyrian steel shot-glasses and all your friends who are die-hard “Game of Thrones” fans. It may be mid-April, but winter is still here.
