The Chest of a Thousand Grogs is a Cursed Treasure Chest in Sea of Thieves, that causes its carrier to be drunk.

Cursed Effects[]

The scrapped Female Chest of a Thousand Grogs

The Chest of a Thousand Grogs curses those who carry it with endless Grog drunkenness, causing the Player Pirate to have blurry vision, swaying side-to-side movement, and start hearing distorted sounds along with accompanying Concertina music to the tune of "Drunken Sailor". Jumps while holding the chest, a cheer will be heard, and an abrupt collision sound of a Concertina when touching ground.

The Chest will also affect Rowboat handling when a Player is paddling one while carrying the Chest on back.

The Chest has a Grog tap on its front, allowing Players to refill their Tankards up to 1,000 times.[1]

  • The image on the chest is a cartoon of the famous Portuguese poet Luís Vaz de Camões, that wrote the famous book "Os Lusíadas" about the Portuguese conquests in the sea. He was famous for his drink habit and bar brawls.
  • A female version of the Chest of a Thousand Grogs was planned. Players will sometimes see this version on the Chest Discovery notification when the chest is dug up.
  • Sometimes when a Player picks up a Grog Chest, the "Drunken Sailor" tune will remain stuck on their character for all other Crew members as an auditory bug.
