Basketball

Ok, this game is an original. The directions are lengthy but simple if you know how to play real basketball.

You need: A deck of cards, 3 glasses (preferably 3 different sizes), at least 2 people, a coin, beer (or harder stuff if you want).

Setup: divide the deck into 4 random piles of 13 and set them upside-down in front of you. Each pile represents a quarter. Take the 13th card of each pile and turn it 90 degrees, this card represents the "buzzer-beater" (to be explained later). Arrange the three glasses in a row vertically in front of you so one is closest, one is middle, and one is furthest. Flip a coin to determine who will go first, this is the "tip-off."

Playing the Game: The person who wins the "tip-off" flips over the first card from the "first quarter" pile. If the card is between the numbers Ace to Five then that counts as taking a "two-point shot". The person who flipped the card must now take the coin and try to bounce it off the table into the two-point cup (the closest one). If the shot goes in the other player must take as many drinks as the card was (i.e. 3 of hearts = 3 drinks). If the shot is missed however, the other player does not drink and it is now his turn to flip a card from the first quarter deck. If the card flipped over is between Six and Ten, then that is counted as a "three-pointer" and the coin must be bounced into he middle cup. If made that same number of drinks are taken. If a face card is flipped (Jack, Queen, or King) that is considered a foul (explained later). The player who wins the tip-off begins quarter one and four, the other begins quarters two and three.

When a Foul Occurs: When a foul card is turned over, the player must now attempt a shot at the two pointer glass, if made this shot is worth 10 drinks. After this shot, one or two more "free throws" are taken at the two pointer glass (depending if the player made or missed the original shot respectively).

Buzzer-Beater: This is the final card you previously turned sideways. When the buzzer-beater card is turned over, the player must now shoot for the third and furthest glass. If this coin is made, the other player is to take twice the number of drinks as the card designates (potential for 21 drinks if a foul card is turned over). Note that if the buzzer-beater is a foul card you must still attempt the first shot in the buzzer-beater glass and take the foul shot at the two-pointer.

Winning: The game is over when all four quarters have been played. The good thing about this game is that there is no loser unless you actually keep score of the points you make. Good luck trying to do the maths.


*** Warning: this game is intended for a mature audience that is of legal age to consume alcohol. Please drink responsibly and help others safely enjoy alcohol.
