The goal of Flip Cup is to flip and finish up the cup faster than the other team.
Each player stands behind his cup. The first two players of each team begin. They cheer and start drinking at the same time. As soon as the cup is empty, the player flips over the empty cup and places his hand on it. As soon as the first player has his hand on the cup, the second player of the team can start to drink. The team in which all players first have their hands on the empty cups wins.

We recommend at least four players. So two players per side.
However, if you are already four, Beer Pong offers an excellent alternative to drinking games.
