Hockey is a coin drinking game where people surround a table and mimic the sport using a quarter as a puck and beer for a goal


  • 1 Quarter
  • 1 Beer per person per game
  • A floating table (not touching a wall)


Each player stands around a table, preferably one that everyone can reach around. Everyone has a full beer can that will act as their goal.


Each participant takes a turn spinning the quarter. The "spinner" calls out the name of a random player. Once that person's name has been called, they become the "shooter." After and only after the name has been called can all participants (except the shooter) cover their beer with no more than two fingers-- I usually play where you can only use your index and pinky finger. The shooter then attempts to flick or sweep the quarter and hit any of their opponent's guarded beers. The defining clink of a quarter on the metal can denotes a goal scored. (There is no penalty for missing) If a beer is hit, everyone takes their beer off the table. The person who hit the beer spins the quarter, during the duration of spin the person whose beer was hit must chug their beer.

Additional rules

  • If the drinker finishes his/her beer whilst the quarter is spinning they can enact "instant revenge" by slamming their empty beer can on the quarter. Whoever scored the goal in the first place must then drink in the same quarter spinning fashion. If the player who scored the goal can stop the quarter with their finger in an upright position (perpendicular to the table) the one who was scored on must chug their beer.
  • If you are scored on three times you must wear the "helmet of shame" upon your head-- which of course is the empty cardboard beer case You have only three tries to get the quarter spinning on your turn; if you fail to do this your beer goes in the penalty box (center of the table) for one turn, during that turn you cannot block your beer with your fingers.
  • You can play elimination style, leading to an epic one v one face-off, or you may play till an individual player earns a certain number of points. Or till you're all too drunk to care.
