One of the most anticipated shows, Game of Thrones, comes back and starts its final season on Sunday. It has been two years since the last season, season 7, aired on HBO, and people cannot wait for to see the final season. There are no rules in the show and everyone is waiting to see who, if anyone, will survive till the end of the show. Game of Thrones is one of the most watched shows in the U.S. right now, so there will be many watch parties for the premier of the final season. Here are some ideas for a Game of Thrones watch party.
Game of Thrones is a show that you have to devote your entire attention to or else you will undoubtedly miss something important in the show. But if you think that you can handle multitasking, there are many drinking games that are fun to play to the show. These could be good to make you and your guests watch the show more closely to see when you have to drink. My favorite list is to drink when: Daenerys dragons appear, someone gets drunk, main character dies, Little Finger schemes, when there is lots of violence, white walkers appear, the Iron Throne is shown, and someone says “winter is here”. This list will make you drink steadily throughout the episode.
While it is hard to eat while watching game of thrones because of the gore, some snacks would be ideal for a watch party. An easy snack is to make Game of Thrones cookies, they may be difficult to decorate if you decide to put the houses banners on them. You could also just decorate them with house colors or with each houses saying, such as “Winter is Coming” and “Fire and Blood”. Another idea is to make cake pops that are shaped like dragon eggs, or even just a cake that is shaped like a dragon egg. If you have all three eggs guests can choose which dragon they want to eat.
The last thing that you could do for a Game of Thrones watch party is to dress up for it. It is hard to find any clothes that resemble the characters that are under $70, but shirts are only $20. There are many shirts that say “Winter is coming”, “You know nothing, Jon Snow”, and “A girl has no name”. You could buy a shirt that represents you favorite character and wear it in the hopes that they will not die.
