New Quest Set: The Twelve Days of Whiskey

Nothing says holiday cheer like mind challenges!


 We're still unsure why a clearly drunk Santa Claus is popping out of a present
In between caroling, present wrapping, and general bouts of holiday cheer, the Giant Bomb staff thought up a new Quest for you brave souls: The 12 Days of Whiskey. For those of you familiar with our Quest system, this challenge will seem pretty straightforward. But here's the catch: every day for the next 12 days we'll be launching a new step in the Quest challenge - each day will count down to 1, Christmas Eve. 12 Days, 12 Quests.
 
In addition to Giant Bomb, we're running Quests over at sister sites Comic Vine and Screened, so be sure to flex your mental muscles over there as well and earn some of that sweet, sweet XP.
 
Now, don't be a grinch, check out this gem to start off the Quest!

Posted by ip007

So, what does that page mean exactly? Does a quest complete pop up when I go there? 'Cause it's not..

Posted by CitizenKane

Let is begin!

Posted by AndyPhifer

I love new quests, but man do I hate how it destroys Whiskey's web servers.

I know! It looks so bad.

I find that typing in an animal and slapping a "Z" on at the end seems to work pretty well.

Posted by damswedon

Haha did it. 
Wish we got told our completion number, but I can why you wouldn't do that.

Posted by Daniel
@MjHealy: Ha! Yes that does work surprisingly well ;)

The 12 Days of Whiskey..... I think I threw a party with a similar title once, but my memory of it is a little fuzzy...... 

Posted by Legend

Just finished the first one. Whoever is responsible for creating those horrible gamez must be stopped.

Posted by Video_Game_King

Gem? *clicks link* Someday, I will beat that game. And the day after that, I will write the wiki for it and not get Major Fan.

Posted by FlipperDesert

I got partway into the first one and then all the Ubisoft shovelware games made me want to off myself. Uuuurgh.

Posted by HubrisRanger

Completed. The Xtreme naming convention's convergence with "girl games" is kinda bizarre.

Posted by guthwulf

Xtreeeeeeme Gamezzzzzzz!!!
 
Also I love Poniez.

Posted by wolf_blitzer85

Ahh so that's why the site is running like ass ;)
 
Cool idea guys! I might dive back into quests again, as I've been kind of slacking lately.

Im going to take this quest at face value, (as im a little confused).. 
 
Day 1: Jameson

Posted by Daniel
@tinylanda: You start Day 1 of a Whiskey celebration off with Jameson? C'mon, man, c'mon......C'mon.

As a young whiskey drinker I have to ask why the c'mon? It's not terrible. I could be snob against Whiskey Media's staple Bulliet brand (just going off what I saw from the site/ big live show), that shit aint no small-batch either, haha. 
Posted by tinylanda
@daniel @Gunharp   Its only a start, get it out of the way quick, have it in abundance.. as well as a few variants that ill be throwing in until i have to start buying more whiskey's mid next week 
Posted by beej
@tinylanda: get some woodford reserve up in it!
Posted by tinylanda

@beej Might be a little hard to come across here in Ireland, at least not in the next 12 days. ill stick to the blends and single malt scotches :) 
 
Might pick one up though next time im through the states,

Posted by weegieanawrench

Posted by artofwar420

Cool pants!

Posted by MightyMayorMike

Hmm, going to that first page didn't kick off any quest for me. I must be missing something...

Posted by ApolloBob

I got my 12 - waiting for the next set to unlock.  Oh quests, why can't I quit you?

Posted by generic_eric

Posted by tinylanda

Day 2: Macallan 10 Year 

Posted by Duder_Me

The xtreme games is screwed up. Not all the game pages work!

Posted by tinylanda

 Day 3: Jack Daniels Single Barrel

Posted by ch3burashka

It's been 2 days, and no one has completed the quest set yet. I'm disappointed in you, GB community.  
 
Very disappointed.

Its buggy. I keep refreshing the Uwe Boll page, but nothing happens. 
Edited by Skullo

Can people give some general hints about either current quests? Like the unlucky places and crazy mascot. I got the RE and SH things to pop up. and HL.

Hey what the hell's going on? Quest 7 was supposed to launch on December 18th, but it's now 1.10am GMT on the 19th.

Posted by Count_Zero

For Six Unassuming Monsters
 
Tonberry (cute, slow, unassuming, deals the maximum possible damage in the game) didn't make the list. 
Chocobos didn't make it 
Cuccos (the Chickens from Link To The Past who will kill you really fucking dead) didn't make it. 
Jack Frost (From the Mega Ten series) didn't make it. 
 
So, did anyone get this quest. If so, do they have clues?
