Games in which an object (usually a ping-pong ball or a coin) is bounced onto, into, over, or through an obstacle. These games may utilize an existing surface or might require the purchase or construction of equipment.


Game Type: 
Boot Factor: 

A team stands at each end of a ping pong table with each person's cup full 'o beer on the table in front of them. Teams usually are two or three.

The cup must not be closer than the distance from the tip of your thumb to the tip of your pinky (fingers spread wide) from the edge of the table.

With ping pong ball in hand, each player (one at a time) tries to throw the ball into any opposing players' cup. Players can lean over the table as far as they can to close the distance.

Super Quarters

Game Type: 
Boot Factor: 

An extension of Quarters, and Speed Quarters. This game has also been referred to as Chandeliers.
Supplies: people, beer, many cups, and a quarter. High buzz factor.

Take one cup, "the big chug," fill it with beer, and place in center of table. Put a small amount of beer in a cup for each player, and place these cups around the big chug; remember which cup is your own.

The game begins with a player attempting to bounce the quarter into any of the cups.

Speed Quarters

Game Type: 
Boot Factor: 

This one is said to be more fun than the original game. This one doesn't allow for those certain people to concentrate for half-an-hour while everyone else gets bored. The cardinal rule in this game is - you snooze, you lose! Supplies: people, beer, a shallow glass, and two quarters.

Situate everyone in a circle. Give the two quarters to two people opposite each other in the circle (or as opposite as possible). Then, say "GO!" and the two people try to bounce their quarters into the same glass.


Game Type: 
Boot Factor: 

This drinking game involves bouncing a coin (typically a 10cent piece), off of the surface of a table (a linoleum one is very suitable as it is really bouncy). The participants form a circle around the selected table with a full glass of their favorite brew (naturally alcoholic).

The aim is simple, to land the coin inside the glass cleanly, without contacting the glass at all by bouncing it of off the table (generally the edge of the coin is best, however, it is entirely the choice of the bouncer.) If the bouncer manages the feat then he/she may select someone who then must skull. (What fun!!). If the coin hits the rim in any form what so ever then it is a RIMMER (bummer for the bouncer), the bouncer must skull.


Game Type: 
Boot Factor: 

A mindless game that actually requires a certain amount of coordination. Supplies: people and beer (as usual), a quarter (hence the name), and a shallow juice-type glass. Or, for a real challenge, and a longer game, use a shot glass with a reasonably wide rim.

All players sit around a table, or similarly hard surface, and, in turn, try to bounce the quarter off the table into the juice glass. If successful, the player tells any other player to have a drink, as well as receiving another turn. If the player fails, play passes to the next in the circle.
