Skyrim has been out for ages now, and, having just jumped back into it, it’s as addicting as ever. I decided to write up a drinking game for it simply because I wanted to revisit the gorgeous countryside and reanimating dead corpses, but I wasn’t sure it was going to be the best material to drink to. I was wrong. There are a few recurring elements that walk the edge of comical at how often they pop up, usually within succession. It’s a bit of a shorter list than usual, but it works. Let’s get into it.
Any form of the word “Dragon” is mentioned – be prepared.
Skyrim is mentioned.
Someone comments on your race, gender, appearance.
Someone asks if you’re sick.
Any of the recruiting groups are mentioned – Legion, Stormcloaks, Thieves Guild, etc.
You level up – drink the number of your new level.
Any skill goes up.
Fail a lockpick attempt – drink for each broken pin.
Fail a conversation attempt – persuade, intimidate, etc.
You find some kind of alcohol in a chest / container. Drink for each one.
Drink 5 for death – make it a shot if it’s from a trap.
Take a shot if you let your horse die because shame on you.
All I can say is a few conversations with the Jarl and the Greybeards about dragons and dragonborn, and you’re gonna forget you already accidentally killed your horse three goddamn times.
