Game of Thrones Bingo, Episode 8.1!

The new season of Game of Thrones is about to begin, and that means that it’s time for a new round of Game of Thrones Bingo! You can find a set of ten cards here:

GoT Bingo 8-1

For those who’ve never used one of my bingo cards before, most of the spaces are things that MIGHT happen, but there’s no assurance that they will. I’m sure we’ll get a dragon versus dragon battle at some point, but I think it’s a long shot for the first episode. Beyond that, a few basic rules…

  • (Character)/(Character) means that we have a meaningful interaction between those two characters. So in the case of Jamie/Brienne, do they have an awkward reunion?
  • You’ll have to decide if you’ll allow the name of a thing being spoken to be enough to fill a space, or if it needs to play a more significant role in a scene. Can you mark off a square just because someone in the show SAYS “The Night King” or “The Army of the Dead,” or do we actually need to see them on screen?
  • In general, debate as to whether a scene checks off a box is encouraged. Was that nudity gratuitous, or was it tasteful and justified? Was that injury really “gruesome,” especially by GoT standards?

As always, the most important thing is to have fun! And remember, when you play the game of Game of Thrones Bingo, you win or you… don’t. It’s pretty straightforward.

The Game of Thrones finale is here, which means one last chance for bingo. Will The Hound and Brienne face off in the North? Does Arya have something cooking? Will Cersei somehow find a way to choose violence… and will she have a drink before she does?

Game of Thrones Bingo, Episode 6.9

It’s possible you’ve ended up here while trying to find an Eberron Q&A – if so, follow the link for that. If you’re here for Game of Thrones, what we know is that this episode is supposed to focus almost entirely on the battle for Winterfell. Given that, I’ve only included North-centric squares, and we have a lot of “Someone kills someone” spaces. It seems like a sure bet that Ramsay will kill someone, but what about Sansa? We know Wun Wun the Giant will charge into battle, but will he crush an enemy by stepping on someone? And will someone turn out to be unexpectedly pregnant? Only time will tell!

Game of Thrones Bingo, Episode 6.8

For anyone playing along at home, here’s the bingo cards for this week’s Game of Thrones:

GoT Bingo 6-8

There’s a few holdovers from last week, as we’re still hoping to see Arya on a boat and at least one dead Frey, not to mention a few possibilities for more familiar zombies. And while we all know that Stannis is Dead, the space refers to someone – most likely Brienne – specifically bringing it up in conversation. “Face Off” primarily means someone removing their face (as we saw last episode)… but we’ll accept a particularly dramatic confrontation!

Have fun!
