CUP Collector #3 GAME

GENERAL RULES

  • This can also be played with multiple players
  • You can either through one cork/bean bag at a time and rotate or you can through all four in a row. It’s better with larger groups to through one at a time to keep everyone in the game and helps speed up the turns
  • Every time you make it into a cup you collect the cup. After all cups are gone, the person with the most cups wins

 

Pool – GAME #3

GENERAL RULES

  • Each hole has an assigned pool ball number, both solid and stripe.
  • Each play throws their cork and tries to make their stripe or solid
  • The players continue to play if they sink their ball as called – Slop can be allowed but it’s up to the players
  • Since there are 14 holes and 15 balls, the first made cup will have the stemless wine glass or beer glass put in as the eight ball
  • There are no scratches as with pool, but you can add the rules as you see fit.
