How to play “Chandelier” Drinking Game

The “Chandelier” drinking game is all about shooting ping pong balls into cups. Depending on which cup the ping pong ball lands in, you either have to drink or not. Easy right?

Get Started

Well, there’s more to it than that. Let’s take a look at what you’ll need and how to set it up:

  • Plastic cups (at least one for each player and two additional ones)
  • Ping Pong balls (one for each player)
  • Lots of beer
  • 4 or more players
  • A table

Now that you have everything you need, it’s time to set up the “Chandelier” drinking game. Every player gets one plastic cup and a ping pong ball. If you’re a big group, you can also share balls.

1. Set up the cups

Place the “death cup” (a regular plastic cup) in the middle of the table and fill it up to the top with beer. Put the death cup on top of a turned-over plastic cup so it is higher in the air than the other cups.

Fill your cups halfway with beer and place them around the death cup. It’s important to remember which cup is yours, so if you want to play it safe, let all player write their name on their cups with a permanent marker.

2. Start shooting!

Your goal in “Chandelier” drinking game is to shoot the ping pong ball into one of the enemys’ cups. You need to bounce the ball off the center cup (the death cup) before it goes into the other player’s cup.

So the ball has to touch the table first, then the death cup, and finally land in the other player’s cup.

2. If you make it into a cup, the player must drink its contents and is out.

If you make the shot, the person to whom the cup belongs drinks their drink and removes their cup from the table (so the person is out of the game). After they finish their drink, they have three chances to flip their cup.

If they can’t successfully flip their cup (the cup doesn’t land upside down on the table), they have to drink up the death cup. After that, the death cup gets refilled, and the “Chandelier” drinking game continues.

3. If you don’t make it into a cup, nothing happens.

If you don’t make the shot, it’s the next player’s turn.

4. If your ball landed in the death cup, everybody (except you) must drink.

If your ball somehow ends up in the death cup, everyone playing (except you) has to drink up their cup and flip it up again. The last person who’s managed to drink up and flip their cup successfully is out.

5. The game is over when only one player is left with a cup.

The “Chandelier” drinking game is over when there’s only one person left who still has a cup on the table in front of them. That person is the winner!

“Chandelier” Drinking Game Rules

Because the “Chandelier” drinking game is so easy to play, you can easily add extra rules to spice things up and make it even more fun. Here are a few variations you can try:

1. Sudden death: If the last player on the table successfully makes their shot, the game becomes sudden death. All players who have been eliminated get a chance to take one last shot at the death cup.

If anyone makes it, they can choose one player to drink the death cup and flip their cup to win.

3. Chandelier of shame: If you’re feeling daring, you can replace the death cup with a cup filled with a mix of all players’ drinks. Whoever enters this cup has to drink the entire concoction and is out of the “Chandelier” drinking game.

4. Punishments: If you miss a shot, you must complete a predetermined punishment such as taking a shot of hard liquor or doing a dare.

Now that you know the rules, gather your friends and let the “Chandelier” Drinking Game begin! Remember to drink responsibly and have fun! Cheers 🍻
