Drinking Game of Thrones, Amended

It occurs to me that many fans of Martin’s series might have been disappointed to find that my last post about Game of Thrones was in fact about Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee. And despite the fact that I gave many suggestions for getting hammered, I suspect the fans might still be upset. Thus, I’ve decided to apologize by giving the people what they want: a Game of Thrones drinking game.

Except for that my version is played using the novels.

That’s right, folks: step right up, and get hammered while you read. What, you’ve never played a reading-drinking game before? Well, it’s high time you start!

A Novel Approach to Getting Hammered Whilst Enjoying A Song of Ice and Fire

The Basics:

1 drink for the prologue
1 drink for a new chapter
2 drinks for any Stark except Bran
3 drinks for Jon Snow, Daenerys, any Greyjoy, or any Lannister
4 drinks for Bran (because let’s face it, Bran chapters need all the help they can get)
2 drinks for any new geographic location
3 drinks for every direwolf
1 drink every time someone mentions winter, and how it’s coming all the time

Building a Buzz

2 drinks every time Cersei and Jaime have sex
2 drinks every time you feel bad for Robert Baratheon
3 drinks every time you question why you feel bad for Robert Baratheon
1 drink every time you feel bad for Arya
2 drinks every time you feel bad for Sansa
1 drink every time Arya does something awesome
2 drinks every time Sansa does something annoying
3 drinks every time you ponder the mystery of Jon Snow
1 drink every time you want to murder Joffrey
1 drink every time you want to murder Cersei
1 drink every time you’re creeped out by Theon
1 drink every time you think there’s more to the Hound than meets the eye
1 drink every time Littlefinger or Varys does something suspicious
1 drink every time a Dothraki claims that it’s known
1 drink every time a Dothraki talks about/attempts a rape
1 drink every time Khal Drogo gets freaky with Daenerys

Blacking Out Before Depression

Finish your drink every time you lament the realism of these novels
Finish your drink every time you praise the realism of these novels
Finish your drink every time someone you thought was a major character dies

Enjoy!

Naturally, this is not an exhaustive list, so if you have any further suggestions, feel free to leave them in the comments!

  1. Drink every time he describes someone eating a crust of bread soaked in bacon grease. You’ll not only destroy your liver but you’ll find your cholesterol levels raised by pure power of suggestion.
