The classic card-based drinking game Circle of Death goes by many names in dorm rooms, bars and house parties around the world: King's Cup, Waterfall, Ring of Fire. Gather some friends, fill up your cups and sit in a circle to play this lively and fun drinking game.
The game is comprised of 52 standard game cards with several bonus cards added such as bomb cards that dare the person who drew it to a ridiculous challenge for the rest of the game such as pin your elbows to your sides and drink like a t-rex for the rest of the game. Circle of Death buddy cards link two players together for the rest of the game so that whenever one drinks, so does the other. Unlock trivia cards using the promo code KINGSCUP and test your knowledge on all alcohol related trivia when those cards pop up.
Circle of Death also includes star cards which rotate out every month with new and fun challenges for the whole group, such as Thumper, 2 truthes and a lie and more.
The game comes with a standard set of rules based on the classic game, but you can easily edit them in the settings. The standard Circle of Death rules are:
