1. Elbow rule
Elbows must stay behind the edge of the table during a throw otherwise it doesn’t count. Stern but fair.
You can call for your opponents to re-rack the cups TWICE in a game, but only when 6, 4, 3, or 2 cups are left.
3. Bouncing & swatting
If the ball is bounced (or bounces) on the table, the defending team can SWAT it away before it lands in a cup.
If the ball lands in the opposition’s cup and starts to spin on the rim, the opposition can get down and give it a cheeky blow, in hope of moving it from the cup.
5. The death cup
If the defender has ANY drink in their hand during the game, the attacker may attempt to throw a ball into the cup. If the shot is successful, they win the game – no matter how many cups are left. Sorry not sorry.
