There are several opportunities (some might say necessities) for Διαγωνισμός ποτούs in The Witcher. Γκέραλτ's stamina will be put to the test. These contests usually involve some goal, though what that goal is may not be clear on the onset. It is usually worthwhile, but I would recommend having either a place to sleep handy, or better still, Wives' Tears on hand for the aftermath.
Participate in Διαγωνισμός ποτούs to gain information and rewards.
- Left-click the "drink" icon in dialogues to choose a beverage and begin drinking.
- Continue drinking until Γκέραλτ's rival gives up (otherwise Γκέραλτ winds up passed out and you have lost).
- Characters often have drink preferences and may refuse anything but their favoured beverage. Outdrink your opponent but take care not to pass out.
- Use beer wherever and whenever possible.
- Διαγωνισμός ποτούs are one of four Παιχνιδάκια within the main game.
