Episode 200 is Saturday, Jan. 18. It is the final podcast. We will be drinking.

I’ve taken the liberty of making some edits to the preexisting drinking game, as some of it was a bit dated. I’ve also merged the “host” and “listener” drinking lists so we can all play together. In any case, come join the fun:

The Hunting Party Podcast Drinking Game!

Note that “If” is a one-time only drink. “Whenever” is a drink for EACH occurrence.


  • Whenever a host screws up/ misses their line(s) and/or is reminded by a co-host

  • Whenever a host complains about Hunter PvP

  • Whenever a host says, “Darkbrew Lager” (Darkbrew alone doesn’t count)

  • Whenever technical issues of any type occur

  • Whenever a show host is interrupted by real-life for any reason (e.g. kids, internet connection, girlfriend, fire)

  • Whenever a listener uses the word, “viable” or “optimal” in their question

  • Whenever a listener username is read that pokes fun at a show host

  • Whenever a question or reader email is answered by the chatroom rather than a host


…for each HPP running gag: Frostheim’s hairy wrists, Canadian jokes, Euripides’ hot sister, Feral Druids, Darkbrew’s Amazing Rare Spawn Tames, How OP Warlocks are, and Sporebats

  • If the show ends on time (impossible for this episode).

  • If the Auction House is referred to as the meta-game.
  • If you clear the mailbox of reader questions within the regular show time

  • If all the show hosts remain connected until the break

  • If all the show hosts remain connected from intro to outtro

  • If all five show hosts are in attendance (Darkbrew, Frost, Euripides, Arth, Alisaunder)

  • If Frostheim makes someone notably uncomfortable (e.g. “I’d totally tame you, Dawn!”)

  • If Euripides is accused of having certain inappropriate feelings towards Feral Druids

  • If anyone refers to the show notes during the show (e.g. “I’m just reading what’s in the show notes.”)


  • If a news announcement includes a new in-game item, NPC, or achievement named after a hunter community member

  • If a real-life injury is sustained by a show host during the show, including the break

  • If you realize that the show is not being recorded
  • If your question or email are read-aloud on the show (listeners only)

  • If Darkbrew is given half the crap Frostheim and Euripides give one another

The Hunting Party Podcast Drinking Game (Ep. 200 Addendum)!


  • Whenever Michele talks about out-drinking Frost (limit 3)

  • Whenever BRK talks about how it was “in his day” (limit 3)

  • Whenever Arth mentions Pet Tanking (limit 3)

  • Whenever Frostheim says “Semi-colon however comma” or enunciates punctuation in a similar manner (limit 3)

  • Whenever Euri talks about being a train conductor (limit 3). Add a second swig if moose are mentioned in the anecdote by any host.

  • Whenever Alisaunder shoehorns lore into a topic having nothing to do with lore (limit 3)
  • Whenever Zeherah corrects us with actual math (limit 3)

Personally, I think there are two that are going to kill us if we play correctly. The first is any time a host screws up their lines. There will be a TON of those. The second is if any of the “down a glass” things happens. A real-life injury seems the most likely.

    I’m not much into beer, so if I were to play this it would most likely be shots. I assume for the “Drink” and “Once” categories that would just be one shot? Then two for “Down a Glass”?

    • Arth says:

      Bah, rookie! I’m going to be rocking Johnny Walker Black AND home brewed beer.

      But yeah, whatever works. The point is just to have fun without passing out mid-Saturday. Plan accordingly, per your tastes and tolerance.

    I’ll have to take a tally and make up for it in the evening; very unseemly to do this on a Sunday morning.
    It’s sad to be losing my favourite podcast, despite understanding the reasons behind it. Just want to get in an early thank you to ALL you guys for all you’ve done over the years. My socks have been totally rocked off.
    Much love (not in a feral druidy way), and happy hunting/quaffing

    The end of a WoW podcasting institution. At the very least, I can say that Frostheim taught me the correct usage of a semicolon. Truly something I will carry with me my entire life -even if it makes me look like a smug jerk.

  4. Darkon ie Druidtamer says:

    I’m going to be laughing me butt off no doubt as all the rules except one will no doubt be used

    nerf locks

    Totally off track here but…
    Not only should we be able to tame feral druids, we should be able to skin the dead ones. Just a thought.

    On topic, I have not been able to tune into the podcasts due to RL timing issues, but i am really going to miss all of you, hosts and audiance. This is the one place real data without a lot of BS was available for us poor shmucks without a clue.


  6. Darkon says:

    out of curiosity was the show ever actually interrupted by fire or is that just for a joke

    • Arth says:

      I think just a joke. But you’d have to ask Dark or Euri to know for sure. If I think of it, I’ll mention it Saturday.
