After FYA HQ’s watch party for the first two episodes of The Baby-Sitters Club, I obviously had to INHALE the rest of the season and then honour it the FYA way: with a drinking game!

The Official FYA The Baby-Sitters Club Season 1 Drinking Game

Take a drink whenever:

  • Kristy rebuffs Watson’s attempts to get to know her
  • Mary Anne does something awkward
  • Claudia is making artwork
  • Stacey is shady about her diabetes
    • From Episode 4 onwards, just whenever diabetes is mentioned
  • Dawn mentions a cause that she supports
  • Kristy’s mom is the best
  • Mimi is also the best
  • Janine is the worst
  • Karen cracks your shizz up
  • you feel super old

Finish your drink whenever:

  • Mallory and Jessi make their first appearance

Drink some water whenever: 

  • the show MAKES YOU CRY?!?!? (Gotta stay hydrated, y’all!)

Raise your glass to toast whenever:

  • the show GOES. THERE. and does it in such a graceful and non-afterschool special way, like WOW we are learning and growing and LOVING IT

The Official FYA The Baby-Sitters Club Season 1 Drinking Game: Expansion Pack for Book Readers

Take a sip whenever:

  • you feel #blessed that your beloved childhood favourite has been so lovingly adapted 

Take a drink whenever:

  • you recognize the name of a baby-sitting client from the books

Take a shot whenever:

  • you notice an update from the books that infuses much-welcome representation into the show
