Skyrim Drinking Game

Skyrim Drinking Game -

Our Skyrim drinking game is a solo drinking game for anyone playing Skyrim. It can also be played by watching any online streamers on twitch who are playing Skyrim. For those who don’t know Skyrim is a massive open world rpg game, with nearly limitless things to do. So we figured if you’re going to spend the next few hours wandering around the Old World, getting in fights with local farmers and joining guilds, you may as well bring a few drinks on your journey.

What You’ll Need

For this game all you’ll need is the game Skyrim on any platform. As well as a few drinks. This can either be played solo or everyone in the room can pass the controller around and drink to these simple drinking rules. The rules are pretty straight forward and easy to spot. If you want the full effect, we suggest playing this game with some Meade and Wine.


Skyrim Drinking Game Rules

  • Drink every time you hear the word Dragonborn
  • Anyone mentions a “Sweetroll” drink three times.
  • You hear anyone mention “an arrow to the knee” drink three times
  • Unsuccessful pickpocket, drink twice.
  • You receive a threatening letter, drink 3 times.
  • Drink whenever you’re over-encumbered
  • If you die, finish your drink.
  • If you notice any kind of glitch. These have become pretty iconic of Bethesda games. 
  • If Khajit has wears if you have coin, take a sip.
  • Every time you are looting something and you notice some kind of alcohol like meade or wine, take a sip.
  • Every time you notice a piece or wheel of cheese somewhere, take a sip.

When a Dragon Arrives

(this can be random or during a crucial main story moment)

  • If the dragon kills anyone but you, drink three times.
  • If you run from the dragon, or the dragon runs from you, drink three times.
  • If the dragon kills you, you must finish a full drink.


These Skyrim drinking rules should suffice to enrich your experience. But remember if you’re playing with multiple people it’s always courteous to pass the controller around. There’s nothing quite as annoying as being invited somewhere only to realize you’ll just be watching someone play a single player game. And as always, please remember to drink responsibly. If you’re the kind of person who likes the idea of having a few drinks with their RPG experience, why not check out our Fire Emblem drinking game?
