Drink to Kill: A review of DrunkQuest

Are you ready to drink for your life?

This is the quick and dirty guide to DrunkQuest: You draw cards for character class and an ability, then play proper involves drawing a treasure or facing up to a creature at play. To battle and “hit”, you have to drink a number of shots equivalent of the creature’s HP.

Take the shot!
Take the shot!

Think it’s easy? Right.

Low-level critter. Take 5 to take it down.

Notice the picture above: see the big red number on the upper left side? That means that it takes 5 shots to take down that monster. FIVE. And Sake is not even a mini-boss, at least. I was too tipsy when a boss was drawn, but I remember it going up to 10 HP or more.  For every creature you destroy, you take your liver down with you.

While you may co-op with other players to share the hits, the game knows how to stir up shit really fast. You may put draw or put down cards in your hand instead of facing the monster. Take note though: these cards are not co-op friendly. You either add to the monsters’ HP, force someone to drink for you, or have everyone at the table drink.

Did we win? I don’t remember.

I just noticed that we had started from a bucket of five beers and two very full bottles of rum, to NONE.

What, we're done?!
I woke up, two hours passed, and I wondered, ‘Why is the world on its side?’

DrunkQuest is great game for friends, gamers and non-gamers alike. Drink lots of water and eat a hefty burger before you adventure. Oh, and keep one friend sober. You’ll thank me later.
