Drinking Game: The Lord of the Rings
Drinking game for the Peter Jackson version of The Lord of the Rings. Beware of extended film marathons!

  • Take a drink when Frodo says 'Sam'.
  • Take a drink when Sam says 'Mr Frodo'.
  • Take a drink whenever anybody mentions the One Ring.
    • If you have a death wish, take a drink every time there's a close-up of the ring.
  • Take a drink whenever you see somebody's filthy, chewed finger nails (unless they're yours).
  • Take a drink whenever a bad guy dies (good god).
  • Take a drink whenever Gollum says 'my precious'.
  • Take a drink every time somebody pulls out a sword.
  • Take a drink every time you talk along with the dialogue.
  • Take a drink any time Gollum hacks 'Gollum! Gollum!'
  • Take a drink every time Legolas says something vague and portentous.
  • Every time there is a close up of the Eye of Sauron.
  • Take a (small) sip every time Frodo's stressed-out, ring-possessed face looks like... something else.
  • If you feel like living dangerously, take a drink whenever a character says a line that was at worst unremarkable when the films came out, but has become Narm due to Memetic Mutation. WARNING: TV Tropes cannot be held responsible for any alcohol poisoning anyone got if they took this challenge. You have been warned
  • Take a drink every time Frodo trips over his own feet. By the end, you should look as haggard and beaten as he does.
  • Take a drink whenever Frodo and Sam have a bromance moment.
  • Take a drink whenever the name of a person, place or thing is said in an ominous and portentous voice.
    • Take a drink whenever someone repeats the name of something dangerous after the first person said it.
  • Take a drink whenever Gandalf turns up and just makes things ok. For extra difficulty, do that with The Hobbit.
  • Take a drink every time the Dies Eerie plays in the music.
  • Take a drink every time someone complains about what a different species did or didn't do several centuries ago. Particularly Thorin Oakenshield.
  • Take a drink whenever a hobbit screws up.
  • Take a drink whenever a member of Boromir's family screws up.
  • Take a drink whenever someone says "One by one" or "You know (of)..." in Fellowship of the Ring
