Do not attempt if you value your liver.
  • The image to the right should give you a good start. It probably would be enough to kill you or at least knock you out.
  • Take a shot any time any of these are repeated:
    • "Here comes the general"
    • "Look around"
    • "That would be enough"
    • "I am not throwing away my shot!" or any of its variants.
    • "I imagine death so much it feels more like a memory"
    • "Aaron Burr, sir"
    • "One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten!"
      • Take two for "un, deux, trois, quatre, cinq, six, sept, huit, neuf, dix"
    • "Whoa, whoa, whoa-ohh-ohh"
  • Take a shot any time the year/location is mentioned.
  • Take a shot any time a character mentions going down in history.
  • Take a shot for any time a gunshot is fired/heard.
  • Take a shot for any time where A. Ham is introduced with a run-on sentence.
  • Take a shot for every time A. Ham writes a letter.
  • Take a shot for every time Eliza sings something about being in the narrative ("Let me be a part of the narrative..." etc.).

  • Take a shot for every reference to a modern rap/R&B/hip-hop singer or group.
  • Take a shot for every time actual historical documents are read from (e.g. Washington's farewell address).
  • Take a shot for every time Angelica says something about being satisfied.
  • Take a shot for every character that dies on stage. Traditionally you would finish your drink for this, but this show has such a high body count that it would singlehandedly destroy your liver. Don't forget Laurens has a death song in the stage show that isn't on the cast recording that falls between Acts 1 & 2. Don't bother for characters that die over the course of the action but don't die on stage (eg. Washington, Peggy)... unless you really hate your liver.
  • And remember! No fair pretending to drink! You are NOT throwing away your shot!
