DECIDING WHO GOES FIRST - EYE TO EYE: “Eye-to-Eye” is when a player from each team shoots the ball while maintaining eye contact with their opponent throughout their shot. If both players miss or both players make it, their partners now shoot. This goes on until one person makes it and their opponent does not. The hit cup is not removed; the ball is taken out and rolled back to the team that sank the shot.
ELBOWS: When shooting, elbows must be behind the edge of the table. If the shot is made, the infracting player may step back and re-shoot the ball.
RE-RACKING: One rack per game at 2, 3 or 4 cups. No racks mid-turn.
BOUNCING & SWATTING: If a ball hits the table and then goes into a cup (even by accident), the cup that the ball goes into is removed, as well as another cup of the defending player’s choice. The defending team may swat away the ball after the bounce, before it hits a cup.
FIXING CUPS: At any point during the game a player may ask for the cups to be fixed. (This is not a re rack, it is for cups that have been knocked out of place or slid on the table.)
BRING IT BACK: If both players on the same team sink cups during their turn, they get the balls back for a second turn.
DEATH CUP: Once a cup is made and is pulled up from the rack and before the contents have been consumed, the cup in a player’s hand (or even if they put the drink down) can be referred to as a death cup. If this cup is made by the opposing team, the game is automatically over and the team to sink the death cup is victorious. If the cup is still on the table and not in a hand and both balls land inside, it is 3 worth cups (2 additional chosen by defending team).
REBUTTAL: After the last cup is hit each player from the losing team has a chance to hit the remaining cups. Each player shoots until they miss, the order in which this is done does not matter. If there are racks left over they may be used now. Once both players miss and there are remaining cups, the game is over. If the players manage to hit all remaining cups the game goes into a 3 cup overtime.
OVERTIME: Three cups are placed back into a triangle shape and the would-have-been winners shoot first. There are no racks permitted on overtime, however the last cup may be pulled back / centered.
