Flip Cup Drinking Game Rules

Flip cup is a fun and fast-paced drinking game that requires teamwork, quick reflexes, and of course, drinking. It’s a great game to play with a group of friends at a party, and it can be enjoyed by players of all skill levels.

Setting up the game

To set up the game, you’ll need the following supplies:

  • A long table
  • Plastic cups
  • Beer or other alcoholic beverages

Place the cups at the edge of the table, with one cup for each player. Fill each cup about half full with the desired beverage. Divide the players into two or more teams, with each team standing on opposite sides of the table.

How to play

The game begins with the first player from each team chugging their drink as fast as they can. Once they finish their drink, they place the cup back on the edge of the table, with the open end facing up. Using their thumb and index finger, they attempt to flip the cup over the edge of the table so it lands upside-down.

If the player is successful, they then pass the baton to the next player of their team, who then repeats the process of chugging their drink, placing the cup back on the edge of the table, and trying to flip the cup over.

The game continues in this fashion, with each player on a team taking their turn, trying to flip their cup as quickly as possible. The first team to have all of their players successfully flip their cups wins the game.

Tips and variations

Here are a few tips to help make the most out of your flip cup game:

  • Choose the right size cups: Using cups that are too large can make it difficult to flip them, while cups that are too small may not hold enough liquid.
  • Practice flipping the cup before the game: It takes some practice to master the art of flipping the cup. Practice flipping cups with water before the game to get a feel for the motion.
  • Create a relay style: To make the game more interesting, you can create a relay style with different players taking turns on a team, to make the game last longer and more engaging.
  • Add different rules: You can add different rules to the game to make it more challenging, such as requiring players to spin the cup three times before attempting to flip it.

Flip cup is a fun and exciting game that can be enjoyed by players of all skill levels. With a little bit of practice and teamwork, you’ll be well on your way to winning your next game.

Remember to drink responsibly and follow all local laws and regulations regarding alcohol consumption. Have fun and enjoy the game with your friends!
