Just a quick note: this game was created to celebrate the release of the Hamilton movie, but it can just as easily be played when listening to the soundtrack!
We’ve all been waiting for the day that a Hamilton movie would be available in our households, AND IT IS HERE! The film is a live recording from 2015, which means you get to see Lin Manuel Miranda, Leslie Odom Jr, and the rest of the incredible, original cast on the big screen without having to spend our life savings.
You can find the movie on Disney+, and I would argue the subscription is worth it just so you can watch Hamilton every day for the rest of forever.
This drinking game would be super fun to play with a group of friends, whether virtually or in person at a safe distance, and is family-friendly aside from the fact it’s… you know… a drinking game.
So it’s imperative we don’t throw away our shot, drop everything, and watch this glorious film with a drink in hand.
The rules are simple: raise a glass to freedom and drink every time you see the following…
The Hamilton The Musical Drinking Game
One sip when:
- Angelica says “Satisfied”
- Eliza says “Helpless”
- Hamilton says “Aaron Burr, Sir”
- Someone talks about Hamilton’s writing
- Someone says “The Schuyler Sisters”
- Someone mentions a duel
- Aaron Burr feels overshadowed by Alexander
- Someone says “Look Around”
- You hear the number “Ten”
- Someone says “Right hand man”
- You hear the main theme of the show from the song “Alexander Hamilton” (DUN dadada dun dun DUN, doo doo dooo doooo)
Two sips when:
- Someone mentions Alexander’s eyes
- Someone speaks in French
- Jefferson does something dubious
- Someone burns something
- King George vocalizes instead of using words
- Hercules Mulligan curses
- Someone references Alexander’s upbringing (orphan, son of a you-know-what, etc)
- Peggy has a line
Finish your drink:
- A main character dies
- You or someone you’re watching with shed a tear
