Get woke and wasted with the ‘Dear White People’ drinking game

Get woke and wasted with the ‘Dear White People’ drinking game

We don’t know about you woke folk, but we thought season two of Dear White People was even better than the first. Bringing with it more scandals, topical plot lines, and slippery politics from the campus of Winchester University, S2 conveyed the message that representation matters and they absolutely nailed it this time round (while also tying in lots of will-they-won’t-they-OMG-yes-they-will love stories and cliff hangers to boot).  

Season three will be airing next month. In the meantime, we’ve put together a Dear White People drinking game for you to enjoy and pass the time with your fellow woke buddies. Be sure to enjoy the game responsibly and replace your booze with sips of coffee or water if you’re feeling woozy.

So without further ado, let’s get woke & wasted!

Take a sip of your drink everytime . . .

A text comes up on screen

Go easy on this one, it happens a lot.

Anytime someone says “woke”

“Here’s a little game I call ‘Woke or not’.”

Logan Browning in 'Dear White People'

Someone mentions a social media platform

Twitter, Instagram – whatever!

Something turns out to be fake news

#QuinWoke? Come on!

It’s one hec of a turbulent relationship, but we all know Sam will always be Gabe’s Insta bae.

Two headstrong journalists – it was bound to happen.

That irritating Sorbet dog turns up

At least, we think it’s a dog.

As said – awkward!

That girl’s got bite.

Take an extra sip if it’s so bad, you have to leave the room.

“It’s about to be Dear Fight People up in here!”

Kurk Kurks

You’re gonna need a sip anytime this douche is on screen.

Voice of an angel.

She’s the best friend everyone deserves and needs.

Including Joelle, finally!

What is her purpose?

It’s a highbrow soundtrack.

Homophobia, sexism – this show’s full of them.

When they Dear White People’d together.

He’s not a patch on Anthony Mendez (Jane the Virgin), but he’s still great.

Take a shot whenever . . .

Someone watches Defamation or Trap House Tricks

Someone takes a hit on a bong or a pipe or a spliff. Duh!*
