"Game of Thrones" season 7 premiere is right around the corner and lots of "GOT" parties have been planned all over the world. It's time to release an updated version of the "Game of Thrones" drinking game. Are you ready? Here you have the rules for the new season of the show.

How to play

Take a sip when:

  • The opening titles start
  • Someone says "Winter is here"
  • A White Walker shows up
  • Swords are drawn
  • Dragons spit fire
  • There is a feast
  • Littlefinger creepily hits on Sansa Stark
  • A face is swapped with the Faceless Men technique
  • Samwell mentions Jon Snow
  • Tyrion says something clever
  • If someone says "King in the North", everyone must shout "The King in the North!" and take a sip. If a player doesn't shout the words, he/she must drink a full shot.

Take a shot if:

  • Arya kills someone. In case of mass murder, take a sip for each victim
  • A White Walker kills someone
  • A relevant character dies
  • Daenerys says "Dracarys" or her full name and titles are announced
  • Someone says their house words
  • Someone mentions the Mad King, Rhaegar Targaryen or Lyanna Stark
  • Arya says she's "no one"
  • If Bran time travels, the first one to say "Hodor!" can choose who is going to take a shot
  • If The Wall falls down, the house owner(s) takes 3 shots
  • If a long-lost character reappears (Gendry, Nymeria, etc.) the last person to arrive at the house takes a shot.

Optional rule:

  • Every time a House sigil is on the screen, the first one to say those house words decides who takes a shot.

Making new rules

Each time a member of the group suggests a new rule and every other member agrees, the new rule takes place immediately.

Drinking too much?

You can easily adjust the quantity of alcohol you're drinking. If you think you're not drinking enough, you can take half a shot instead of a sip or use bigger glasses. If you think you're drinking too much, you can take half a shot instead of a full one. If you don't like to drink alcohol and your fellow Game of Thoner's don't object you need not consume any alcohol at all.

Remember not to drink and drive! If you have been drinking, get a ride home, use public transport, call a taxi or Uber. Choosing in advance which member of the group won't drink is the smartest idea. The non-drinking friend will have fun as well: watching "Game of Thrones" new episodes with friends is great even without alcohol.

A short video to get ready for the new season
