Fantasy Inmate is a game played by (most of) the guards at Litchfield Maximum Security Prison. It is first mentioned
in "Who Knows Better Than I" when CO Copeland and CO Alvarez are talking about Frieda's suicide attempt. Later, in the CO lounge, CO Hellman tells COs Luschek, McCullough and Blake about the game, to Luschek's excitement. The game is played by picking inmates and gaining points for things they do/have done to them. For example fights, sex, tasks, etc. The game costs $100 to play and the CO with the most points wins. The game is played every Fantasy Inmate season.

The game is discovered by Gloria when she find papers for it in Luschek's desk. She attempts to inform the rest of the prision via Flaca's radio show but the mic isn't turned on yet. Alvarez returns and takes her to SHU for locking him out of the room (and potentially for attempting to expose the game). The COs shuts down the game out of fear that they might get exposed by the inmates. Alvarez is expected to win as he has gained the most points, but CO Copeland actually wins when her assigned inmates, Carol Denning and Barbara Denning, murder each other, giving her double points for murdered and murderer, allowing her to win Fantasy Inmate.
