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.
Dexter specific:
  • 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”
  • Drink any time Dexter says or thinks "Tonight's the night"
  • 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 anytime Quinn says "FUCK!" when the rest of the sentence has a calm tone.
Rita and the Kids specific:
  • Drink anytime Astor is a jerk
