Subject: team quarters

You start off in teams of twos. There are five cups, one large and four small. One player on each team starts with the quarter. A countdown is given (3, 2, 1, go) both players simultaneously shoot for a small cup.

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.

Spinners

Game Type: 
Boot Factor: 

A physically and mentally "challenging" game. Low buzz factor.
Supplies: people, beer, and a quarter.

A group of people sit around a flat table with one quarter. One person takes the quarter and stands it on edge on the table, holding it with the end of his/her finger. with his other hand, (or with the same hand holding the quarter), he hits the quarter, causing it to spin (like a top) across the table.

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.

Rimmers

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.

Quarters

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.

Nickels

Game Type: 
Boot Factor: 
From: "Thomas Mercer" <tem7@worldnet.att.net>
To: <drink@slashpalace.org>
Subject: Nickels

Supplies:cards, a nickel, people, and any type of booze
This is a real good game that will get you real tanked.

The dealer takes the nickel and puts it under his beer or cup, then calls out a suit and deals the cards out to everyone at the table until the suit called is dealt to someone. That someone has to drink the numerical amount of the card (face cards are ten and aces are fifteen).

Drop the Dime

Game Type: 
Boot Factor: 

To play this game you will need a cigarette, a glass, a napkin, and a dime. Unfold the napkin and place it over the mouth of the glass so that it will stay in place (may need to secure with tape or rubber band). Then place the dime in the center of the napkin. The object is to see how much of the napkin you can burn away, taking turns, with the cigarette. The player to cause the dime to drop consumes a full glass of beer.
