Drew Moerlein: This is Flip Cup, also known as Flippy Cup in some parts of the world, not in my home. What you're gonna need is a bunch of cups, a bunch of friends. Anywhere from two to 10 friends, somewhere around there. Two or 10 per team, so four to 20 players. You could play one on one, if you're looking to get shwasty.

So you're going to line up your cups, you're gonna to line them up just like this, on the opposite side of the table. The teams line up on both sides of the table and each person has their cup. You put a bunch of beers in the middle of the table, just for refillers. And you're going to fill your beer, you're going to fill your glass up about, it depends on how intense you want to go, you'll realize after the first few games that filling it up to here every game is probably not a wise decision, depending on how you define wise. I would fill it up about a quarter to a third, you know, you can go a little less if you really want to play a ton of games and not get wasted. You're gonna fill the glasses up. And how the game is gonna work. You're gonna line up across from an opponent, that is the person who you are essentially chugging against. The first two people go. Boat races, boat races, let's drink a cup. Boat races, boat races, let's get f'd up. Boom. And they chug their cup.

Group of speakers: Five, six, seven, eight. Boat races, boat races, let's drink a cup. Boat races, boat races let's get f'd up.

Drew: It goes up, down, up and you cheers each time. Up, down, up. So, boat races, boat races let's drink a cup. Boat races, boat races let's get f'd up. And then you chug your cup, put it down and flip it. So as soon as this cup flips and lands, this person can go. Until that moment, this person cannot touch their cup. You can not have your hand on your cup, waiting to go, you have to have your hands on your lap. As soon as you see this cup land. And those are players.

Group of speakers: Yes! Yes! Yes! Go!

Drew: Those are the different players playing. So I flip mine, finish it, the next person can touch their cup, after mine lands. Does it, flips it. Next person, as soon as this cup lands, drink down. Once all the cups go and then it gets back to the last person, say we started here, all the way down to the end of the team, back to first person, they finish. The first team to finish, boom, we win. Yay! And then you go like this, flip all your cups back over, take your beer, fill 'em up. Fill 'em all up, get ready, take as much time as you want and then you move down a person. Change the person who's starting and go. And that's Flip Cup.
