15 Tipsy Thoughts I Had Playing The 'Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone' Drinking Game

Diply 13 Apr 2018

After having watched each and every Harry Potter movie over and over again, I figured: Why not put a twist on the 'ole franchise, adult it up, and add some alcohol to the mix?

So I did, and I decided to play along with a drinking game as I made my way through the first film, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.

1. People say Harry's name way too often in this movie.

The first rule in this game that I followed along with (which you can find here) was, "Take a drink when someone says, 'Harry'."I dropped this rule faster than you can say, "Leviosa."

2. Honestly, Harry, why didn't you just open your letter in the hall alone when you first got it? You know your relatives suck — they're not just going to let you have a piece of mail.

I know we talk about how Harry failed for not grabbing a letter from the ground when they were all flying in, but he had his best chance when the first one came, and he failed.

3. We were all just okay with Hagrid permanently disfiguring a child because he was frustrated with the Dursleys? 10 points from all of us.

That is messed up, y'all! How did we let this slide?

4. Deleted scene: Harry Potter diving into all of the gold in his vault à la Scrooge McDuck.

I mean, the kid just found out he's pretty much loaded, so why not make the most out of this very rare situation?

5. Could no one else hear the convo between Harry and the Sorting Hat? They were speaking in very audible voices. “Not Slytherin, eh?” Cut to all Slytherins: “...the hell?!”

Also, did no one question why the Sorting Hat spent such a long time on Harry’s head?

6. Snape ? Knows ? How ? To? Make ? An ? Entrance ?

The man comes into his classroom with a straight-up flourish that is sure to gain all of his students' attention, that is, unless you're Harry and you would much rather take notes.

7. Those Hogwarts ghosts are all about that school tea. “Did you hear Harry Potter is the new Gryffindor seeker?” “Guuuuuurl.” ?

I guess they really don't have a whole lot else going on, so they might as well sit around and dish.

8. OG Dumbledore would have def asked Harry if he put his name in the Goblet of Fire “calmly.”

The original Dumbledore, may he rest in peace, seemed way more chill than the one who took over and basically accosted Harry, accusing him of throwing his name in the Goblet.

9. Harry Potter logic: I can’t see through this translucent invisibility cloak, better take it off so I can read these book titles more clearly.

Harry, sweetie — it's an invisibility cloak. You are trying not to be seen by anyone. Why must you take off your cloak to see better?

The margaritas were hitting me very quickly, and I may or may not have gotten up on my high horse. Just here for Hermione's 'tude.

11. Not even Voldemort is about to mess with the centaurs in the Forbidden Forest. That is how badass they are. Also, Firenze can get it.

It was at this point I was starting to become attracted to mythical creatures, and if you thought that stopped me from drinking, you are so very wrong.

Those pajamas are absolutely adorable, and it just makes his glo up even more magical.

13. Me: "Ron, put away your wand. You're not fooling anyone, blimey." Me 10 seconds later: "Ron! I take it back! Please grace us with your Wizard Chess Wisdom!"

I went through a roller-coaster of emotions in such a short time. My head was spinning.

No, it wasn't the alcohol! Blimey!

14. Harry lived through fighting off Voldemort at age 11 but is super excited about getting chocolates after he wakes up in the hospital. I’m such a Harry. ?

Just defeated the most powerful dark wizard in history and lived to tell the tale, but lemme dive into these Chocolate Frogs before I start the story.

Also, can we talk about how Dumbledore only awarded him 60 house points for almost dying?!

15. Hagrid spent the entire school year putting together a kickass scrapbook for Harry, and a "Yaaaas!" goes to Hagrid.

If anyone was wondering what he was doing down in his hut, now we know.

I highly recommend playing any and all Harry Potterdrinking games because not only did I discover new things about the movie, but I also learned new things about myself...

...such as that five margaritas is apparently my limit. Cheers!
