Season 6 Premier Party
Game Of Thrones Through New Eyes
The Game Of Thrones Death Pool
Here is how this works:
During dinner we will all have an opportunity to place our bets on who is going to die this season. You get 10 points for guessing the correct person and 5 points additional if you correctly guess the episode. You do not lose points if you incorrectly guess the episode. You get minus 10 points if you incorrectly guess a person (so you can't bet on EVERYONE, k?) but you can never go below 0 points.
The person who has the most points at the end of the season will win something effing amazing at the finale party. More details on that as soon as my brain births it...
I printed pictures of all of my living characters on some parchment paper and will cut them out. I'm going to pin these to a cork-board. Yup! That's it, nothing fancy, just a cork board. I was able to find some super cute weapon thumb tacks that I'll use for my guests - get to that in a minute.
The pictures will be pinned to the cork board with regular boring pins, title and decorations at the top, of course. Each guest will have a pile of little flags at their plate - each one is a different color labeled with their name. They will also have a pen - on the back of their flag they will write the name of the person they are choosing to die and an episode number (if they wish) then will use a weapon to pin their flag to the character. Betting is CLOSED once the show starts and will remain that way for the entire season. As people die, they will be marked with a red skull and crossbones and each guest will be updated of the stats via text.
I have room on my board for 7 more people and suddenly names start flying from my husbands lips like he's an auctioneer... Eventually we found ourselves having the John Snow discussion. He is NOT ON THE BOARD.
SPOILERS!?!? Ok, seriously, you haven't read the books and you haven't watched the series yet, what are you doing here?? Don't get all huffy over spoilers when we are going into season 6 and you haven't done your homework! At this point, if you aren't caught up yet that's on you.
I digress. John Snow is not on our board because he is "dead." A LOT of people are going to be disappointed when they set his body on fire, that's all I'm sayin. (Not saying that's a certainty but all this talk about him being alive means he's dead and he's not coming back..... my guess - I mean, who doesn't live and breathe for the moment that Game of Thrones dashes our hopes and ruins our dreams?)
The seven we must consider are, according to the Lord of the house, are as follows:
