Let’s be real, you’ve got to master the basics of certain drinking games you’ll find at every party.

Obviously, at your tailgates and parties this season, you’ll be thrown into a situation where you don’t know the drinking game. And that’s OK. But let’s be real, you’ve got to master the basics of certain drinking games you’ll find at every party. So we scoured the Internet and asked our college-aged sources (the true experts, after all) just how to nail that round of your all-time favorite drinking games: beer pong, flip cup, and King’s Cup. All in the name of good journalism, of course.

Check out our tricks and tips for winning (OK, and maybe cheating) at the most popular drinking games. We promise, 68 percent of the time, they’ll work every time. (What we can’t account for, obviously, are your alcohol levels when playing. So you know, if you do lose, don’t blame us — blame the booze.)
