Given the plethora of oft-repeated lines, memes and tropes in both the TV show and the books, I'm actually quite surprised that nobody has already started this topic before. Since the TV series is rated TV-MA and the books contain even more adult-rated content, the thought of consuming adult beverages while enjoying a visit to our favourite fictional realm seems appropriate. So without any further ado, here are my humble first additions to the Drinking Game of Thrones. I'd say spoiler bars for events that haven't happened in the TV series yet are appropriate.
Lock your car keys up. Don't lose your head - drink responsibly!
Take a sip whenever:
- Anyone says "Winter is coming" or repeats any House Words (Hear me roar, We do not sow, etc)
- Anyone says "A Lannister always pays his/her debts"
- Anyone says "Words are Wind"
- Anyone says "Dark wings, dark words."
- Anyone says "For the night is dark and full of terrors" -- two drinks if it's someone other than Melisandre or a whole group.
- Joffrey commits a blatant act of physical or emotional cruelty
- Joffrey gets slapped. Looping the slaps only counts as a single occurrence.
- Anyone mentions onions when referring to Davos.
- Tyrion -- ah, to heck with it. Whenever Tyrion does or says something awesome, which is always. (LiverOfSteel™ may be required here.)
- Hodor says "Hodor."
- Bran wargs into Summer.
- Whenever the name of one of the novels or the name of the entire series of books (A Song of Ice and Fire) is mentioned.
- Dany gets whiny.
- Dany recites her full titles (one sip per title - LiverOfSteel™ may be required here too)
- Sexposition occurs. Two sips if it's anything other than Doggy-style (a.k.a. Game of Thrones position)
- Samwell does something heartwarming, heroic or decent.
- Sansa says/does something stupid (LiverOfSteel™ territory once again)
- The Hound does something kind.
- The Mountain does something evil.
- Dolorous Edd says something dolorous or witty.
- Littlefinger does something creepy.
- Dragons do something important (i.e. not a fashion accessory or part of an establishing shot).
- Stannis performs an editorial task or corrects someone's grammar.
- Arya is referred to as a boy.
- Arya recites her hit list.
- Anyone says "Valar Morghulis."
- Ygritte says "You know nothing, Jon Snow. LiverOfSteel™ -- or a transplant -- may be required for book readers.
- Two drinks if anybody else says it.
- Whenever a character or characters are in a bath or pool.
- Whenever The Rains of Castamere is played, whistled or performed in any way.
- Whenever The Bear and the Maiden Fair is played, referred to, whistled or performed in any way.
- Raise a toast "TO HBO" every time there's gratuitous nudity or excessive bloodletting.
Take a full shot whenever:
- A new named character is introduced.
- A named character dies. Two shots if he or she is executed as opposed to just dying in battle, disease, being murdered or by accident.
- Any major character comes back to life (by any means other than a flashback). Only drink on the reveal.
- Any major named character is permanently disfigured in some way but otherwise lives.
- Any form of incest, twincest or inappropriate intra-familial touching occurs.
- Two shots if it's in a religious setting.
- Arya takes a different name or identity.
- Any time a severed head is shown (multiples count only for one drink).
- Two shots if s a former POTUS is visible.
- Prophecy is revealed or discussed.
- Prophecy comes true.
- Any character "turns his cloak." (becomes a turncoat)
- There is a wedding. Spoiler
- Any character wargs into something other than his/her direwolf.
- A character is tortured.
- Westerosi history or lore is revealed
A full shot of Crown Royal whenever:
- A new king is declared or self-declares.
- A king dies.
Let's add to this, shall we?
