How to play?

• This game is a relay race.
• Teams line up on opposite sides of the table.
• Each cup is filled about a quarter of the way full by the tourney judge.
• The person at the head of the table by the tourney judge is considered the starter (order of players will be at each team’s discretion).
• Game will be started by the tourney judge. The two starters from each team will cheers and then pound their beverage.
• Once you pound your beverage, you put the bottom of the cup on the edge of the table and attempt to flip it so that it lands up-side-down.
• Once the cup has successfully landed up-side-down the next person on your team may then pick up their cup, pound their beverage and try to flip it.
• This happens until all players on a team have successfully flipped their cups. The team whose anchor player successfully flips their cup first is the winner of that game.
• The starter of that game will then rotate to the anchor position if another game is necessary. All other players on a team will shift forward one position.
• To advance to the next round, a team must win two out of three games in that round.
