Beer Pong may have been among the most popular drinking games of choice for the past several years, but another game may soon be edging its way to the top of the gaming list on college campuses and in bars everywhere--Flip Cup.
One night- after many, many, many, many, many, many consecutive Flip Cup victories- two long-time best friends, Mike and Scott, had an idea. "Let's start a monthly Flip Cup tournament in Hoboken!" And so it began...Mike and Scott became the Flip Cup Guys. Flip Cup Guys LLC is home to the co-ed Flip Cup tournaments, tours, and events in the United States. Flip Cup Guys donates proceeds from all of its events to the winning team's charity of choice.
What started in Hoboken, NJ is now a growing phenomenon with Flip Cup Guy's leagues being built in New York City, Philadelphia, Chicago, and across the U.S. If you've never played and don't exactly know what Flip Cup is all about, two teams face off against each other to see who can finish their drinks and flip their cups mouth side down the fastest. The first team to successfully flip all of their cups wins.
The Flip Cup Guys' latest venture is what they have dubbed The World's Largest Flip Cup Tournament. The Tournament, which is expected to bring 64 teams together to face off for Flip Cup supremacy, is set to take place at 1 p.m. on October 11th at the M1-5 Bar in New York City. With six players per team at $30 per player, teams that are eliminated from the standard tournament enter the Flip Cup Guys loser bracket (aka the Toilet Bowl) and compete for an actual toilet seat! The winning team will get a 7-day Sun Splash Tours vacation in Negril, Jamaica or a cruise to the Bahamas on the famous Rock Boat.
