The Drinking Game (of Thrones): When you play the Drinking Game of Thrones, you win, or your liver dies


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”

Drink when:

Someone dies

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.
