Kings cup

King — King's Cup: Finally, the namesake of the game. When the first three kings are drawn, that player pours some of their drink into the King's cup. The person who draws the fourth and final king loses the game and drinks the contents of the cup. (Yum!) While the name and rules vary widely, the set up is the same. A ring of cards is arrayed around an empty cup, called the Kings Cup. Players take turns drawing the cards and performing the action. For instance, if a player draws a two (“Two is You”), that player can point to anyone at the table, who then must take a sip of their drink. Seven is often “Seven is Heaven,” where the last person to get both hands in the air must drink. Whenever someone draws a king, all players pour a little of their beverage into the cup. The person to draw the final king in the deck must chug down the contents of the cup—i.e., the not-so-regal Kings Cup.

PLAYER

Five — Never have I ever: When someone picks a five, each player puts up 3-5 fingers. The person who picked the five starts with saying something they have never done, if you have done it, you put a finger down. The first person to put down all their fingers, loses and drinks.

This game is highly open ended and all of the cards can signify any mini-game, the rules and the card assignments are normally confirmed at the start of the game. Depending on house rules, the game either ends when the last rule card has been pulled or the king's cup has been consumed. In variations where cards are placed on top of the king's cup, the game is over when the cards fall off, with the player responsible for knocking them off having to consume the king's cup.
