Flip Cup Drinking Game Rules


Teams compete to see which is better at chugging beer and flipping a cup.


  • Plastic Cups
  • Flat table
  • Beer


Two teams stand on opposite sides of a table. In front of each member is a cup full of beer. The players match up against the player across from them.

Game Play

The game starts with the two opposing players at the end of the table going “down, up, down, chug.” This means they put their cup down on the table, and then they touch cups before putting them back down and chugging them. Once a player finishes drinking the beer in their cup, they attempt to flip their cup over. The most popular method is the “two finger flick” but any is acceptable as long as the player is not manually guiding the cup over the whole time. Once one player has successfully flipped their cup, the next player in line chugs their beer and flips their cup. This process continues until one team has successfully flipped all of their cups.

*Drinking games can be extremely dangerous and even deadly. Please drink responsibly and ensure that you do not consume unsafe amounts of alcohol.
