'Quarters' Drinking Game Instructions

Players: 3 - 10

Quarters is perhaps the original drinking game, and can be played anywhere there is alcohol.

Players sit around a table armed with a quarter. A cup (empty or full of alcohol, depending on your preference) is placed in the middle of the table, at least 10 inches away from all players. If the table is not big enough, just move the cup when it's a new player's turn.

The players must bounce a quarter off the table and into the cup, in any way possible using only the quarter, the table and the cup. If successful, the player makes another player drink, and gets to try again. (If you're using a full cup, the assigned player must drink the whole cup and retrieve the quarter.)

If the player missed the cup, the player to their left is passed the quarter and they get to toss.

Some optional rules: If the quarter bounces off the rim, a re-toss is allowed. If the rim is struck three times in a row though, the player must drink.
Also, if the player misses they can call "Double!". They toss again, and if successful, they assign a player to chug their entire drink. If they miss though, the player must chug his drink.
