Rule 1: Take a drink every time somebody falls off a cliff or otherwise drops from a great height.
Rule 2: Take another drink if they survive unscathed.
Rule 3: Take a drink every time Thorin tells Bilbo he shouldn't have come.
Rule 4: Take a drink every time Bilbo agrees with Thorin that he shouldn't have come.
Rule 5: Take a drink every time Gandalf turns up apparently out of nowhere to save the Dwarves and Bilbo for almost certain destruction.
That's all I've got so far but I'm sure they'll loads more from the second and third films as well.
Sounds like a surefire way to die from alcohol poisoning...
You should post it on TV Tropes. Seriously, they do that sort of thing.
Indeed, they have one for The Lord of the Rings
. To whit:
Drinking game for the Peter Jackson version of The Lord of the Rings. Beware of extended film marathons!
•Take a drink when Frodo says 'Sam'.
•Take a drink when Sam says 'Mr Frodo'.
•Take a drink whenever anybody mentions the One Ring.
(If you have a death wish, take a drink every time there's a close-up of the ring.)
•Take a drink whenever you see somebody's filthy, chewed finger nails (unless they're yours).
•Take a drink whenever a bad guy dies (good god).
•Take a drink whenever Gollum says 'my precious'.
•Take a drink every time somebody pulls out a sword.
•Take a drink every time you talk along with the dialogue.
•Take a drink any time Gollum hacks 'Gollum! Gollum!'
•Every time Elrond appears on screen say: 'Miiiiiiissster Baggins'.
•Take a drink every time Legolas says something vague and portentous.
(Take a drink every time Legolas makes a Captain Obvious remark.)
•Take a drink each time Legolas' eyes change colors.
•Take a (small) sip every time Frodo's stressed-out, ring-possessed face looks like... something else. [These last two words are linked to a TV Tropes page called 'The Immodest Orgasm']
•If you feel like living dangerously, take a drink whenever a character says a line that was at worst unremarkable when the films came out, but has become Narm due to Memetic Mutation. WARNING: TV Tropes cannot be held responsible for any alcohol poisoning anyone got if they took this challenge. You have been warned
BTW, in case you don't know, Narm is an overly hammy performance in an otherwise serious moment of fiction. That's what I get the impression, anyway.
Four minutes? That's ages! What if I get bored? I need a television, a couple of books. Anyone for chess? Bring me knitting.
