Crash Roulette Is The Greatest Skyrim Mod Ever Made
Skyrim is renowned for having one of the most innovative and impressive modding scenes in video games. From the massive Live Another Life overhaul to the addition of Daenerys’ Starbucks cup from Game of Thrones, it genuinely seems as if there’s a Skyrim mod for everything.
But today I found it – the single greatest Skyrim mod of all time. Have you ever heard of Crash Roulette? No? Well, let me tell you all about it then.
Crash Roulette – a pun on cash roulette – is a mod in which you bet the opportunity to earn in-game money against completely crashing your game. All Crash Roulette really does is add one tiny gambling minigame to Skyrim – and yet, it is my favourite Skyrim mod of all time simply because of how effortlessly funny it is.
“Five scripts work, one doesn’t,” reads the official mod description. “Challenge an NPC, make the bet – if they lose, they die and you get the gold, if you lose, you crash to desktop.”
To play the game, you simply walk up to any NPC in Skyrim and choose the option to bet 1,000 gold against them. You pick one Daedric number and shout it at the sky, with a one-in-six chance of winning. Even essential NPCs can die if they lose at Crash Roulette, which can cause… issues.
“This mod is obviously meant as a joke and just for fun,” the mod description says. “It should not be taken seriously. Since it allows you to kill essential NPCs as well, it can potentially break your quest progresses. It’s compatible with everything though.”
The official mod page also has a to-do list down at the bottom of the description, which only has one single task: “Make a hardcore edition that even makes the saved game corrupt if you lose.” Pretty intense.
Anyway, Crash Roulette is the best Skyrim mod out there because it is completely and utterly ridiculous, like pretty much all of the good things in life. I’m excited to bet my entire 1,000 hours of save data against a Whiterun Guard for 1,000 gold when the hardcore mode launches. I can already feel the exhilaration.
