I've been trying to find an answer to this but couldn't find anything directly on point - hopefully someone here can assist.

If I prevent the sanity loss completely from Yig's horror check (such as by rolling 1 success on my will check, then drinking whiskey), do I avoid getting cursed?

Thanks for any insight / help you can provide!

You only need to read the text on the tile (Yig) and the Card (Whiskey).

Yig: if you lose Sanity from the test, gain a Cursed Condition.
Whiskey: You may discard this card to prevent... losing up to 2 Sanity.

The whiskey prevents you from losing Sanity.
Yig says: "If you lose Sanity."

The Whiskey prevented you from losing sanity, so you didn't actually lose sanity.

Agree with Mik - you are not cursed.

That was my interpretation as well, thanks.
