In King’s Cup Drinking Game, the most common meaning of Ace is Waterfall. So, when ace is drawn, all players have to chug their drinks until the player who drew the card stops drinking. But this too happens in a systematic way. When the player who drew the card stops chugging, the player to their right can stop and further they player to that player’s right can stop.
In the Australian Version of King’s Cup Drinking game, the meaning of ace is slightly different. Here, ace can all ‘snake eyes’ on any of the player. So basically, no player will look at the player who has snake eyes until another Ace is drawn. But if any player takes a look at that player, then the player who saw snake eyes player has to drink.
The meaning of Two is you. So, the player who drew the card can ask another player to drink. In some games, it is also known as Give 2, where, the player who drew the card will point at two other players to drink. They can also ask one player to chug 2 drinks.
When a player draws a three in King’s Cup card game, they have to take a drink. So basically, 3 is me.
Four means Whores. When a four is drawn, either women drink or the people who have sex with women have to drink.
Five is Jive. It can also be called Bust a Jive. The player who draws a five has to come up with a dance move and the player to their right has to copy the same dance move and plus add to it. This continues for all players until someone in the group messes the steps up. That player has to then take a drink.
Six is similar to four. It means dicks. So here, either men drink or those who have sex with guys will drink.
Seven is Heaven. As soon as a seven is drawn, all players raise their hands to the sky. The player who is last to raise their hand will have to drink.
Eight means Mate. You have to choose a partner or a mate and whenever you drink, they have to drink to and vice versa till the game ends. When a mate draws an eight in the game, they merge the mates and now 3 players have to drink together. When all of the players get mated, it cancels out and the ties are cut.
Nine means Rhyme. It also means Bust a Rhyme. The player who draws a None card says a word and the rest of the players take turns naming a word that rhymes with the original word. So, if the player who draws a nine says ‘hello’, the next players can say words like yellow, mellow, fellow, etc. The person who cannot think of any rhyming word has to take a drink. You can also try rhyming phrases or sentences to make it more fun!
