Speak to Tekla at Fornburg in Norway

You'll first encounter the Drinking Challenge at Fornburg at the start of the game where Tekla, a villager, will challenge Eivor to a drinking match.

Drinking Challenges normally require Eivor to wager some silver to play, but for the first drinking game, it's free.

How to Win the Drinking Game

Eivor needs to finish three horns of mead before the opponent to win the game.

Time Your Gulps

The Drinking Challenge is essentially a rhythm game; you need to press X or A when the white circle is within the orange circle to drink the mead.

Timing and Speed

Each successful gulp speeds up the process, making the timing more difficult but also allowing Eivor to drink faster than the opponent. Find the right rhythm and chain your combos to win!

Note: Pressing the button at the wrong time causes Eivor to spill their drink, slowing down their progress and resetting any combos.

Listen to the Cheers

Starting a drinking challenge gathers a crown of spectators that will cheer at Eivor and their opponent, and they're more than just background characters!

Listen to their cheers. You'll want to time your gulps roughly at the same time they cheer Skal. They'll also cheer faster when you rack up combos.
