Pass The Cup – The Official Rules

Filed under: Sports

As promised in this week’s print edition of Artvoice, we are pleased to present the official rules for “Pass The Cup”.

Pass The Cup is best played at the ballpark with three or more players. The premise is simple. Each participant holds the cup as a batter takes to the batting box (for both teams), and then either places money into the cup or takes money out of the cup depending on the outcome of the at-bat. The the cup is passed to the next participant.

If there is money in the cup when the final out takes place, the individual holding the cup takes the final pot.

Always designate a “Commish” to referee disputes. Happy playing!
