E[G] Drinking Game S2 E21 – The Hobbit

This week on the Educating [Geeks] Drinking Game hosts Alice, Andrea, Cassie and Megan come up with drinking game rules for the 1937 novel by J.R.R. Tolkien The Hobbit. The hosts create their own Smaug inspired drink and try not to burn the house down in the process.

The Rules


Take a drink

  • Every time you feel like the Dwarves are being whiny complainers
  • Any time Bilbo is being a curmudgeon and wishes he was back in his Hobbit hole.
  • In celebration of any songs in the book
  • Whenever Bilbo has ridiculous luck take 2 drinks
  • Whenever there is blame-shifting going on
  • Of cinder whenever Bilbo gets to chill out in a cool location for a while
  • Any time Gandalf arrives on scene
  • Every time you’re annoyed or disappointed with Thoren
  • Any time you notice that the narrator has made himself apparent in the story
  • Any time you find yourself drawing a parallel between The Hobbit and something in pop culture
  • When Bilbo is behaving more of a Took and less of a Baggins
  • Any time all of the Dwarves names are said in a row
  • Whenever there is discussion about treasure
  • Any time someone is communicating with an animal


Take a shot

  • Any time Bilbo puts on his magic ring
  • Whenever you realize they didn’t think something through


During Riddle Battles

  • Take a drink at the start of the scene
  • If you guess the riddle correctly, take 1 drink
  • If you are unable to solve the riddle, take 2 drinks


Signature Alcohol

Mead or your favorite beer.


Signature Cocktail

The Smaug

Fireball whiskey or goldschlager with everclear on top. Light the everclear on fire and make sure not to start a fire in your house.



Chip the glasses, crack the plates!
That’s what Bilbo Baggins hates!
That’s what Bilbo Baggins hates,
So carefully, carefully with the plates!

Blunt the knives and bend the forks!
Smash the bottles, burn the corks!
That’s what Bilbo Baggins hates,
So carefully, carefully with the plates!
