'Spinners' Drinking Game Instructions

Players: 3 - No limit

A simple game, but extremely fun when played right. All you need is a group of people and a quarter.

Get everyone around a flat table. Someone takes the quarter and stands it on edge using a finger on one hand, and flicks the quarter with the other to cause it to spin. Immediately after spinning the coin, this person calls the name of someone else at the table.

The person who's name was called must do one of two things:

  • Stop the quarter from spinning by placing their index finger over it. The quarter must remain on edge and not fall!
  • Hit the quarter using thier finger to cause the quarter to continue spinning. Afterwards, they say the name of someone else at the table, and play continues.
  • If the person who spins the quarter causes the quarter to leave the table when they hit it, they must take a drink.

    If the quarter falls and lands flat before the "called" person can stop it on edge or for force it to continue spinning, then the called person must take a drink.

    Terrible spinning that cause the quarter to fall immediately results in the spinner having to drink, not the person they call.

    The best part of this game is that rules can (and should!) be added for anything you want, such as when it lands heads or tails, or when it stops, etc.

    Have fun!
