Each team will break up into 2 teams of 2 with each team playing in a separate bracket and the winners of each bracket meeting in the finals. Single elimination tournament with a 10 minute time limit per game. 6 cups, no re-rack. Each cup is filled with 1/3 a beer. Players will alternate drinking sunken cups. Losers finish the winner’s cups for them. If at the end of 10 minutes there is a tie play will continue until the first cup is sank. Bounces count as 2 cups and may be swatted, but must be an intentional bounce to count as two i.e. if you “toss” the ball and it bounces off one cup into another it only counts as one cup. If both players sink a cup they get the balls back. If they sink the same cup it’s game over. If a shot is interfered with i.e. a false swatting the player gets to shoot again. Guys may finger, girls may blow. There are no “bounce backs, rebounds, or second chance shots”. "Island" and "On Fire" rules apply. Sudden death redemption with 3 cup overtime. No redemption in overtime.
Party fouling results in automatic loss and party fouler must finish all the cups on the table themselves.
10 points for every game won i.e. in a 16 team event, winner =40 points. 2nd place =30 and both semi final losers =20. the 4 quarter final losers will get 10 points. All eight first round losers receive 0 points. Bonus points will also be awarded for each cup a team wins by. I.e. if a team eliminates their opponent with five of their cups remaining in play they will receive an extra five points that round.
