“It’s not easy being drunk all the time,” Tyrion Lannister once said.
The sixth season of HBO’s Game of Thrones returns tonight at 9 p.m. For a show with so much drama, so much death and so much sorrow, no viewing experience is complete without some alcohol to dull the pain.
Here’s The Hatchet’s drinking game guide for the season. Beware – spoilers abound:
Sip your beer:
For every poor soul that gets mauled by Ghost.
For every poor soul that gets killed by a White Walker.
For every poor soul’s body part that gets dismembered.
Sip your wine:
Along with every character that drinks wine as well (prepare yourselves for whenever Cersei or Tyrion show up).
Every time Melisandre utters, “The night is dark and full of terrors.“
Every time Hodor utters, “Hodor.”
Shoot something stronger:
For every shot that shows Jorah’s greyscale getting worse (alternatively, every time Jorah mopes about something).
When you start rooting for a character you used to hate (e.g. Jaime and Cersei)
Every time bona fide creeps Ramsay and Petyr make you uncomfortable.
Shoot specifically Fireball:
For every poor soul that gets roasted to death by a dragon.
Finish your drink and party all night:
If Jon is resurrected.
Finish your drink and sob into the empty cup:
If Jon stays dead.
