Drinking Game / Tintin

Go To

Unless you want to trash your liver faster in one sitting than Captain Haddock did in his whole life, it is recommended that you use a low-alcohol content drink for this game.

Drink once when:

  • Haddock takes a drink.
  • Tintin dodges a car or a bullet.
  • Captain Haddock curses and you know what the word means.
  • Thomson and Thompson arrest Tintin.
  • Tintin says "What is it Snowy?" or "What is it boy?".
  • Tintin says "Great snakes!".
  • Advertisement:
  • Tintin says "No!".
  • Tintin yells "Gas!".
  • Cliffhanger.
  • Calculus mishears something.
  • Tintin gets chloroformed or gets a Tap on the Head.
  • More than one person laughs at a time.
  • Tintin visits a museum.
  • When Thomson says "To be precise..." and mangles what Thompson said earlier.
  • Thompson and Thomson exhibit incompetence.
  • You spot Herge.
  • Tintin wears a disguise.
  • Madame Castafiore mispronounces someone's name.
  • Snowy bites someone.
  • Someone suffers blunt head trauma.
  • Someone gets tied up.

Drink twice when:

  • Someone who isn't Tintin gets chloroformed.
  • Someone who isn't Haddock gets drunk.
  • Someone gets punched in the face.
  • Someone barely escapes death.
  • Captain Haddock curses and you don't know what the word means.
  • Tintin tricks some crooks into thinking his fingers are guns.
  • Thomson says "To be precise..." and doesn't mangle what Thompson said earlier.

  • Madame Castafiore gets someone's name correct.

Drink thrice when:

  • Racism.
  • Villain escapes.
  • Calculus hears something perfectly.
  • Thompson and Thomson exhibit competence.

Special rules:

  • Whenever Captain Haddock says "Thundering typhoons/Blistering barnacles" or any variations thereof, you must drink and repeat what he said word-for-word. Screw up, and you have to drink again. Repeat until correct. Harder to do once you're really drunk.
  • When Madame Castafiore sings "The Jewel Song" from Faust, you must drink until she stops singing.
  • When the theme tune reprises to denote a shift in dramatic tension, chug.
  • During "The Castafiore Emerald", take a drink whenever:
    • Someone falls down the stairs
    • Castafiore says "Mercy my jewels!"
    • Someone calls thinking it's Cutts the Butcher
      • When Haddock calls Cutts the Butcher by mistake.
    • Iago annoys someone.

How well does it match the trope?
