Here’s Our Official ‘Game of Thrones’ Drinking Game

HBO’s juggernaut Game of Thrones is returning to TV this weekend with a much-anticipated fourth season premiere on Sunday night at 9 p.m. And while there’s plenty of blood, guts and naked women to be excited about, when it comes to drinking and GoT there’s only one golden rule: when the characters drink, you drink.

And if you follow said golden rule for this week’s episode—King Joffrey’s long overdue wedding to Margaery Tyrell—then you will be nursing a massive hangover come Monday morning.

That’s right the next big wedding , the Purple Wedding, is upon us.

Time to drink up.

One drink for each:

  • New character introduced

  • Character being held captive

  • “Hodor!”

  • Reference to the Red Wedding

  • Switch to a new kingdom

  • Sansa Stark emotional breakdown

  • Ludicrous and over-the-top demand of King Joffrey (unnecessary torture included!)

  • Mention of Jaime Lannister’s cut-off hand

  • Time Brienne of Tarth does something manly

  • Pair of boobs on screen (has to be a full pair, not just a side boob)

  • Time a character drinks

Two drinks for each:

  • Banter between The Hound and Ayra

  • Littlefinger swindle or deception (essentially every time Littlefinger appears)

  • Moment Cersei Lannister acts like a bitch

  • Scene where Stannis Baratheon threatens to do something but does nothing

  • Plot twist involving Bran Stark and his crew

  • Time Jon Snow defies somebody’s order

  • Badass one-liner from Tywin Lannister

  • Reference to Lord Varys being an Eunuch

Three drinks for each:

  • Scene with a white walker

  • Death of a main character

  • Incest reference and/or incest sex scene

  • Time Bronn is seen with a whore on his lap and/or is drinking

  • Tyrion Lannister near-death experience

Finish your drink if:

  • Danny’s dragons kill somebody (doesn’t matter how)

  • Danny gets naked

  • A child is murdered or pushed out a window

Shotgun your beer if:

  • A character is held captive, tortured and has his penis removed in excruciating fashion, ala Theon Greyjoy last season
