Quarters is a mainstay of the college party scene, and if you’ve been to your share of parties you’ve probably played it or at least seen other people bouncing quarters off a table into shot glasses (now you know what they were doing). It’s a simple game that requires only a few things.
Most imporantly, however, people can drift in and out of playing without disrupting the flow too much. This makes it an excellent party game if you are trying to cultivate a casual atmosphere, since Beer Pong and Flip Cup often require teams and long runs on the table.
What You Will Need:
- Two Shot Glasses
- Alcohol: Either a cup of beer or a shot
- A table (must be able to bounce a quarter on it)
Getting Set Up:
To get started, everyone gathers around an empty table. Make sure that all players have access to the space in front of them. Two players, on opposite sides of the table, are each given a shot glass and a quarter. A cup of beer, or a shot, is placed in the center of the table.
How To Play:
- Players take turns trying to bounce their quarter into the shot glass in front of them. Each player shoots until they succeed, then passes the quarter and shot glass to the left. If a player hits the shot on their first attempt, they can pass the shot glass and quarter to anyone at the table. Otherwise, it is just passed to the left.
- If the person to the left, who has just received the glass, is currently in the process of shooting, they lose. They must drink the beer/shot in the middle of the table.
- The loser refills the beverage in the middle and continues shooting until they have succeeded or they get passed again (I hope you are starting to see how some people are going to get real drunk from this game).
