Ready your tankards and drinking horns, my brother Nords, for only the strong of heart and liver can handle this Drinking Game!note 

Take a swig of mead (or whatever you foreigners are drinking right now) whenever one of the following happens in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim:

  • You hear one of the following lines:
    • "I used to be an adventurer like you. Then I took an arrow in the knee..."
    • "Let me guess - someone stole your sweetroll..."
    • "No lollygaggin'."
    • "Some may call this junk. Me, I call them treasure."
    • "Trinkets, odds and ends, that sort of thing."
    • "Looking to protect yourself, or deal some damage?"
    • "That spell looks dangerous... keep your distance."
    • "Do you get to the Cloud District very often? Oh, what am I saying... of course you don't."
    • "Never should have come here..."
    • "So you wish to master the arcane arts..."
    • "Skyrim for the Nords!"
    • "You know,if you've got the aptitude, you should join the College of Winterhold..."
    • "You know what's wrong with Skyrim these days? Everyone is obsessed with death!"
    • " Well, well! Another maggot to squash beneath my boot!"
    • "My favourite drinking buddy!" (also drink an in-game beverage if you're not playing a teetotaler).
  • You end up over-encumbered.
  • A dragon randomly appears in the game world.
    • Take another sip if it was during a really inconvenient time.
    • Take one more sip for every time it kills someone.
    • Also take another sip if it manages to kill you.
      • Down the rest of the tankard if it does a Finishing Move kill on you when you had more than 50% of your health left.
      • Likewise, down the whole thing if you get a Finishing Move kill on the dragon.

  • Something glitchy happens, whether amusing or game-breaking.
  • A Draugr disarms you.

    • Down the tankard if that animal manages to overpower a dragon.
  • If you've downloaded the Dawnguard DLC, take a sip for every time vampires ambush you on the road.
    • Or every time the Dawnguard ambush you on the road.
  • Cicero or the Spectral Assassin says something annoying.
  • The Courier ambushes you in a remote place.
  • Have one shot for every Daedric Prince that claims your soul.
