The Official Rhythm of War Drinking Game

Whether you’re the type to sit down with a light pink wine in the evenings or a staunch fan of Horneater lagers, this Rhythm of War drinking game is guaranteed to carry you through several bottles (Brandon himself recommends boba tea for this particular game). Be careful — don’t try this all in one go!

By Yvonne Ye


Take a sip when:

  • Kaladin has a Bad Time
  • Kaladin and Lirin fight
  • Shallan switches personas
  • Venli successfully lies to someone’s face
  • Eshonai appears in a flashback
  • Adolin proves once again that he is the only one in the entirety of Roshar with emotional intelligence
  • Dalinar scandalizes someone
  • Two sips if Dalinar scandalizes someone by pointedly reading in front of them
  • Navani does SCIENCE
  • Navani and Raboniel do science TOGETHER
  • Taravangian outplays someone
  • Jasnah kills a man (temporarily or permanently)
  • You are seized with the desire to punch Moash (or at least take him by the shoulders and shake him very firmly)
  • You spot another worldhopper
  • You spot another Herald

Finish your drink when:

  • Kaladin becomes the hero he needed (by inventing therapy)
  • You spot either 1) Sazed or 2) some off-world chickens
  • Jasnah and Wit tag-team the most brutal takedown in the history of the Cosmere
  • Deus ex Dalinar (literally)
  • At the end of chapter 80: “The Dog and the Dragon,” because let’s be honest, we all really need one about now
  • An Ideal is sworn
  • “You. Cannot. Have. My. SACRIFICE!”
  • Rhythm of War suddenly shifts genres from epic fantasy to psychological horror

  1. Take a drink when Kaladin has another black out, manic depressive, crushing self-doubt, etc, etc episode: Can you say “alcohol poisoning”…lol! Poor Kaladin, he just stays that way & I didn’t notice until I re-read books 1-3 to get refreshed for book 4. But I still LOVE this series
