Set Up

#1. First, make sure everyone has a full cup of their drink of choice. Then, have everyone put a little bit of their drink into the Death Cup. Place the Death Cup in the center of the table.

#1. Once you’ve set everything up, the player to the left of the dealer draws the first card. (You’ll move clockwise for the rest of the game.)

#2. At each person’s turn, they draw a card and act out the specific rule. 

#3. After that, the next player picks up a card and the cycle continues.

There are three ways to end the King’s Cup Drinking Game:

  • One is that you just stop when you run out of cards.
  • The other way is to keep re-shuffling the cards and see where the night takes you. 
  • Or *sadness* you run out of alcohol.

The saddest reason to end is because you ran out of booze.

Card Rules

Everyone has to react according to the number or face of the card. Because it’s a long list, I broke it down into the “numbered card rules” and the “face card rules.” 

How To Play King’s Cup Drinking Game With Rules
Numbered Cards

2 – “You”– When you draw a two, you get to choose a person and make them drink.

3 – “Me” – If you’re lucky enough to draw a three, this is all you, man.

4 – “Floor” – For number four, everyone needs to get low and touch the floor. Last person must drink from the Death Cup concoction. Yum!

#4 = Floor

5 – “Guys” – Drink up, men.

6 – “Chicks” – Now it’s the ladies’ turn.

7 – “Heaven” – Remember the game “Seven minutes in heaven?” For card number seven, everyone has to reach their arms up as high as they can.

8 – “Date”– For this one, the player gets to choose a drinking “date” for the game. “Now, which one of you lucky souls gets to drink with me the entire night?”

9 – “Rhyme” – Obviously, “Rhyme” means you have to start speaking in rhymes.

First player to not have a rhyme has to drink from the Death Cup. Just don’t be that guy that starts with orange.

10 – “Categories” – When a player draws a ten card, they call “categories.” For example, categories can include cars, state capitals, or names of bands. Go nuts!

Face Cards

Jack – “Social” – Players act like the bride and groom just entered the reception hall. Everyone gets to drink!

How To Play King's Cup Drinking Game With Rules
Start texting your friends that you’re playing King’s Cup tonight.

Queen- “Question Master” – Catch someone who doesn’t respond in a question and make them drink from the Death Cup. 

King- “ Rule Master” – Come up with whatever you’d like, accents, names, anything that when broken will liven up the party (Buffalo, dominant hand, blue man?)

Ace- “ THE ACTUAL WATERFALL– Sort of like dominoes, where one piece can’t drop till the piece before it knocks it over. Same concept, except minus the fist fight. Start it up, choose who follows you on your left or the right side of you and keep the party drinking!

Thumbs: Usually a designated card such as all 5s, drawing “thumb” requires the player to place his or her thumb on the table. Everyone at the table must put quickly put their thumb down.

The last person to get their thumb down on the table has to drink. You must play the thumbs rule before somebody else picks up the thumbs card.

Date: Choose one person to be your drinking partner for the rest of the game. When you drink they drink and vice versa.

Cards on the Death Cup: A variation on the how to play the circle of death drinking game with rules itself involves everyone pouring their drink into the cup with each king.

But whenever they do that, they’re also playing their cards on the middle cup, with at least TWO corners hanging off of the edge.

Keep stacking the cards on top of the cup. When someone knocks the group of cards down trying to stack their own, it’s their turn to drink the contents of the King’s cup.

Never Have I Ever:Use a 10 card to representNever Have I Ever.”

Wild Card: Instead of “Social,” use a Jack as a “wild card.”

Kings Card Variation: Some versions play that you just pour part of your drink into the death cup every time you draw a king.
