Drinking game for Dexter:
This game is meant to be played with a low-alcohol content drink such as beer. If you play with anything stronger, than we suggest you call the hospital beforehand.
The killer rule: Whenever any character commits a crime, take a drink. Murder, breaking and entering, tampering with police evidence, assault, whatever. For some episodes this rule alone can get you nicely buzzed.
Take a drink whenever a crime scene is shown.
Two drinks if you knew about the crime scene before the police did.
Drink any time Dexter misunderstands or does not get a social norm
Drink any time someone says something dramatically ironic about Dexter
Drink any time Dexter says the words “Dark Passenger”
Take a drink anytime Dexter uses “working late” as an excuse.
Drink any time Dexter runs his fingers along his trophies
Drink any time Dexter says something and then immediately contradicts it in his thoughts
Drink every time Dexter kills someone
For a fun variant take x/2 drinks whenever Dexter kills someone, where x is the number of pictures that Dexter has hung up in his kill room.
Take three drinks if Dexter kills someone outside of a killroom.
Drink any time Deb uses three or more curse words in one sentence
Drink any time Debra uses an unusual expression with curse words (I.e. “Fuck me sideways”)
Drink any time Deb stops herself from cursing
Take a shot whenever Debra says something that hints at her daddy issues.
Drink any time that Quinn does something illegal, immoral, or unethical.
Drink any time that Quinn hints about how awesome he is (i.e. Having lots of girlfriends, having lots of money, being good in bed, etc.) regardless of whether or not you or any of the characters believe him.
Drink anytime Quinn says "FUCK!" when the rest of the sentence has a calm tone.
