LOR Rules for Fools
We’re all out of beer! How will we vanquish evil now?

These rules are split into three categories: Watching one of the three films, watching the entire theatrical release trilogy in one go, or watching the entire extended edition trilogy (you obviously have a lot of time on your hands). So stock up on your beverages of choice, remember that this is not the time to enter double-digit proof land, and enjoy your altered trip through Middle Earth.

    Watching The Trilogy (extended edition):

Anytime someone says “shire”

Anytime someone says “my precious”

Anytime Sam and Frodo look like they’re about to make out

Anytime a character takes a drink (water, mead, tea, whatever)

Anytime Elvish is spoken

Anytime the One Ring is put on

Anytime there’s a false ending in “The Return of the King”

Anytime a dwarf is tossed, drink 3 times

    Watching The Trilogy (theatrical release):

All of the above rules plus:

Anytime someone says “Mordor”

Anytime someone says “Moria”

Anytime you see the eye of Sauron

    Watching One Film:

All of the above rules plus:

Anytime Legolas shoots his bow

Anytime someone eats something

Anytime someone says “Sauron”

Anytime someone smokes a pipe
