Slapcup. America’s Game.

I love America.  We are truly an industrious and creative nation.  America adopts things the world creates, combines it with something else and makes it better.  We took the hamburger from Germany, added two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun and created the Big Mac.  We took cheese covered bread from Italy, added pepporoni and sausage and called it pizza.  America itself was founded by a bunch of people who just thought they could do better than England.  Well, we  have also taken the world’s rich history of alcohol and added drinking games to make the drinking experience even more fun.  But we didn’t stop there.  These drinking games continue to evolve and it is that idea that I want to focus on.

America has created the single greatest drinking game ever, slapcup.  What is slapcup you ask?  Only the most important drinking game you should ever learn.  It is on par with learning the pledge of allegiance and the national anthem.  The game itself is rather simple but trying to explain it rather than just playing it doesn’t do it justice.  The best analogy I can give is if speed quarters and beer pong hooked up in the back of a Volkswagen after a Guns & Roses concert, slapcup would be their love child.

The game is basic.  Bounce a ping pong ball into a cup before the person next to you does.  If you do that then you can slap their cup away and they have to replace it with a new cup.  That cup is full of beer though so they must drink that in order to continue the game.  There are a few other rules but I don’t want to bog you down with details.  There are two ways to play, a continuous game and a stop and start game.  The continuous game is more common but the stop and start is more fun because it gives you time to ridicule the loser of that round of cup slapping.  There also tends to be a lot of cheering in the stop and start game which will draw a crowd if you are in a bar.

Another great thing about slapcup is that it is easy to make new rules.  This keeps the game interesting and allows you to get creative.  One new rule I especially like is called Trifecta.  If a person gets their cup slapped 3 times in a row then they have to drink a full beer on top of the cups of beer they are already drinking.  You would be amazed how an entire group of people can unite to get one person completely hammered after that person has lost their second round of cup slapping.

If you are still reading this I am a little surprised.  You should be scouring your kitchen for red cups and ping pong balls so you can play this amazing game.  If you want to learn more just go to Youtube and type slapcup, you will find plenty of how-to play videos.  You can also “like” slapcup on Facebook.  If you know of any cool rules post them in the comments section.  Good luck, and good slapping.
