GAME PLAY BASICS
- Each team member will have a cup of beer filled up to the first line in front of them on the table.
- Referees will be at each table. The Ref will designate the end of the table and the player position that will start the race -- this will player #1. The teams can arrange their player positions at the table in any order prior to the start of a Match. Positions remain the same throughout the match, but the order of play shifts. For the second game of a match, player #2 is the new starter, followed by #3, then #4, #5, and finally #1. The sequence for the third game is 3-4-5-1-2, and subsequent games continue shifting sequence.
- All games will begin with a Gentlemen's Start: Each team's starting player holds their cup aloft at the Ref's signal, when both teams are ready. Each starter will then tap their cup on the table, tap their cup to the cup of the opposing starter, and then tap the table once again . When the cups touch the table for the second time, the race has begun.
- Once the race begins, the first player must drink their beer fully, place their cup mouth-up on the edge of the table, and use their hand to flip their cup over so that it lands mouth-down.
- Once the cup has landed and settled mouth down, the next team member drinks their beer and attempts to flip their cup. All members of the team MUST wait to grab their cup and flip until the previous team member has successfully flipped their cup. If the Ref determines a player touched their cup too soon, there will be a 5-second penalty hold.
- The race will continue until the fifth and final cup has been drunk and flipped. The winning team is the first to have their final cup land mouth-down AND settle on the table.
- In the event that the last 2 cups land and settle at the same time, the game will be considered a TIE. See TIEBREAKER rules below.
