King’s Cup (or Kings or Circle of Death or Ring of Fire or whatever weird name your friends call it) is a popular drinking game. For anyone who didn’t go to college or met someone who did, the game involves players choosing cards from a deck, each one requiring a different action that ultimately leads to at least one person taking a drink. Most people add crazy rules to the game to make it more fun. If you needed that explanation of game, you probably won’t understand this list. Here’s some of the best King’s Cup rules found on Reddit:
Choo Choo Train: Everytime you are laughing, you must pump your arms back and forth. This inevitably gets other people to laugh how ridiculous it looks and soon everyone is moving their arms which causes more laughing.
Every time you target someone (like in a two/you situation) you must touch the person’s chin, look dreamily into their eyes, and ask politely for them to drink.
If you touch your phone during the game, then the rule maker is allowed to send any text message to any contact in your phone.
You must always refer to yourself in the Majestic Plural. (We are going to the bathroom. We need a refill. We think that Originate’s ideas suck.)
THE FOREHEAD MASTER - This is a similar rule to the thumb master but you use your forehead instead of your thumb. The last person to touch the table with their forehead has to drink. After a few drinks, people start slamming their heads and concussions start happening.
T-Rex arms. Whenever you go to drink, you have to lock your elbows in at your sides so that you have T-Rex arms.
Everyone has to talk in the Christian Bale Batman voice
The “Get down Mr. President” rule is my favorite. When the rule maker puts his/her finger up to their ear (like listening to a secret service earpiece) everyone must follow suit. Then, everyone jumps up and yells, “Get down, Mr. President!” at the last person to do so, and gang tackles them to the ground.
I always liked making people finish their sentences with “dot-com.” These days, I think starting off every sentence with “hash tag” would be better.
You must end each sentence with a fake chapter and verse as if it were a bible quote: “Dude, get your own fucking beer. Ballsaks 4:13.”
You have to talk dirty to your beer and call it nasty names before you drink.
Every time someone had to drink, they had to flex and kiss their arms, to which everyone would respond, “NICE BICEPS!” Didn’t matter how little we worked out, everyone felt pretty good after a while.
We make the rule that every time you start to speak you have to start with, “Back when I was a pedophile…”
Everyone has to talk like Foghorn Leghorn.
If you draw a king, you have to eat it.
My favorite category is one that I innovated: Famous Asians. Not as easy as you think.
For Game of Thrones fans: The Hodor rule. When someone uses a curse word they become Hodor. From this point on they can only say, “Hodor,” until someone else curses and becomes the he new Hodor. They can also choose to fulfill their Hodor role by giving another player, of their choosing, a piggyback ride around the table.
If you swear you need to stand and sing the chorus of Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball.”
If you laugh you have to quit drinking forever and only do heroin.
Everyone has to talk like a 70-year-old pack-a-day smoker from Bensonhurst, Brooklyn.
