Game of Thrones Drinking Game
« on: February 26, 2012, 06:56:38 AM »

In honor of the new season coming up, we are having a Day of Thrones marathon where we will watch the entire first season to prep us for the start of Season 2. In preparation I combed the interwebs in search of some good ideas for a drinking game for the viewing.


Here is what I have so far (not that I will use them all, well maybe, but ones I liked and organized them a little).


Somebody says
------------------
"A Lannister always pays his debts"
"It is known"
"Just so"
"Winter is coming"
"seven hells"
Imp, Cripple, Bastard, or Any Other Reference to Unfortunate Births
"We'll talk when I get back..."
"little lord"


When someone calls Arya a boy
Bran says something about being a cripple.
Viserys says he is the dragon/don't wake the dragon


See:
-------------------
Direwolf
Nudity
Raven
Blood spirting out of a slit throat
Decapitation
Child gets harmed - shake head and drink
&^%$@es get told - drink
s**t gets real - drink
s**t gets real because a &^%$@ got told - finish your drink
Jon Snow stands there with his mouth open.


Every time Robert takes a drink, drink
Every time Tyrion drinks, drink


Finish your drink:
------------------
Any "named" character gets killed
Doggie style - drink while doing a fist pump

Triumph of the Dungeon Master!

Ah, how I have come to love that sense of accomplishment and victory that I get when I pull the wool over the eyes of a clever player character. What DM Triumphs have you had?

Some of mine:
1. Finally killing an incredibly powerful, lucky, annoying player's character.
2. Finally achieving a TPK (Total Party Kill)
3. Finally achieving a TPK using only traps
4. Finally working out how to make it so that d**n wizard doesn't steal the spotlight all the d**n time.

I was wondering about this series.  Is it a great show for its own sake?  Is it "follow the books" great, or is it great only if  you ignore the gaping disparities between the books and the television series?  Or is the show legitimately better than the source material?

I haven't actually read the books yet, but probably will in the future.  I'd probably like to watch the series as well if it's any good, but I was burned pretty badly by the godawful "Legend of the Seeker" show.  It's incredible that they managed to go so completely off the rails in the very first episode . . .

It as close to the books, as it dares to be, being a television show. George RR Martin was thrilled with it, if that makes a difference. It is also a great show for its own sake. I am a big fan of all the books (recently finished dance with dragons) and can say that the hbo show kicks butt, despite being somewhat different, and of course skipping over chunks of story that just aren't transferable. The books cover so many years, locations and characters, that its amazing how much they *did* include in the tv series.

Anyway I can launch into a lengthy review, but will spare you :)  I give the series a 4.5/5

I agree with Muro on giving it a 4.5, hell Ill give it a 4.75 due to the addition of so much nudity. yes Im a pervert. It keeps to the books nearly as much as you possibly could. I honestly have never seen a tv show or a movie that has kept to a book as much as this series has. I was rereading the series as I was watching the show and keep up and was amazed at how close it was kept and how entertaining it was to actually see what I was reading. Bottom line, read the books and watch the show. However the first time watch with without playing the drinking game.

I will give it a 5/5 because I read the first book long ago and didn't enjoy it enough to continue. Watched the first couple episodes and it brought back the book straight to mind. So I read the entire series (up to the most recent anyway, another frick'n Robert Jordan). Anyway, the movie was awesome enough that it rejuvenated my reading of the entire series and I had no plans to ever do that. Still not my favorite set of books by any stretch but the movie simply makes them KICK ASS in all ways possible!!

Watch it, watch it now.

Do the drinking game, but do small sips. :P

As far as me thinking to suggest reading the books first...not sure if you need to. If you like the movie, the book will be that much better and the movie that much more fun for you because of your ignorance. I would probably put my vote towards watching the movies and then read the book!

Forgot to mention the Seeker movies. I liked the series but it was like Xena or Hercules. They have the characters and world and only loosely use the actual book parts. Been to long for me to qualify that but, as a whole, I enjoyed the first season and just realized there is a second. In my queue!

It seems that Lord Strolen wishes to see how many people he can put in the hospital with alcohol poisoning!
