How to play Tic-Tac-Toe Drinking Edition Game  

Before you begin to play Tic-Tac-Toe Drinking Edition Game, you’ll have to set the playing area up. On a table or flat surface, use some masking tape to create grids of 3 x 3. Pour your drinks in the disposable party cups and ensure that there are enough drinks for each of the players in every team. Using different colored party cups makes it easier to differentiate between the teams.

Group your players into 2 teams, ensuring that there is an equal number of players on both. Once your set up is done, you’ll be ready to play Tic-Tac-Toe Drinking Edition Game. Here’s how:

Step 1: Have one player from each team stand side by side. When you say go, the players must grab a cup filled with drinks from their side of the table and finish it.

Step 2: When they’re done with their drink, they must now put the cup upside down. Have your players perform a flip cup by the edge of the table. If they successfully perform the flip cup, they’re then allowed to put their cup anywhere on the grid. If they fail, they must continue their flip cup attempt.

Step 3: Once the first player has completed their task and placed their cup on the grid, a second player from their team can come to play immediately. They must repeat steps 1 and 2. This is the same for every other player on each team.

Step 4: The game ends when either of the team successfully performs the flip cup and conquers the grid in the middle of the table. Their cups must be in a sequence horizontally, vertically, or diagonally without any obstructions from the opposing team’s cups.
