Brundage Mountain and Payette Brewing are teaming up to host the Idaho State Championship of ‘the most athletic drinking game in the world.’ GELANDE QUAFFING!
Eight teams of four people can compete. (Register the day of the event 9:30-12:00 in Guest Services). First come, first served. $40 per team, includes first mug and all beer.
Here’s how it works… Two teams will play at the same time, side by side. Each game lasts for one minute. The first and most important rule, if you are watching or playing and you berate any of the judges, you will be asked to leave or disqualified.
Scoring: Once the round starts, teams must slide their mug down the table with mugs filled to the appropriate fill line. Two players start out at each end of the table. Player one slides one mug down to his or her teammate who must catch the beer, drink the beer and the TAP THAT MUG ON THE TABLE before the next mug can be launched to player two. If the next mug is thrown before the previous mug has been tapped on the table, that mug slide does not count. Drop your mug? No points for you. Catch the mug by the glass itself? Your team gets one point. Grab the mug by the handle? Congratulations – you get two points. Get creative when catching those mugs, judges might praise you with up to 5 style points!
If you break your mug, you must pay $5 to get another one.
Judges will add up points at the end of each round to let you know who won. (Single elimination)
In the case of a tie…drumroll please…we go into a QUAFF OFF! The two teams who tied will have ONE throw to impress the crowd. Judges are invalid at this point. Your goal is to get the crowd hyped and cheering loudly for you – they decide who moves on to the next round. If your team gets sent to a Quaff Off, you and your teammates will have one minute to delegate amongst yourselves to create a game plan. Our advice? Come prepared. Bring props. Once that minute is up, send over your team captain. The winner of rock, paper, scissors will decide who goes first. There are no limitations to this round as long as you are being safe! Your entire team can participate in this one throw. You can throw one mug, two mugs, even a pitcher! Get creative! You only have one shot!
After both teams have gone, the crowd cheers and the judges pick a winner based on the crowd’s liveliness. Again, no berating the judges.
And the game continues until we have a winner. One last note, during the championship round, games move from one minute to one minute and thirty seconds and style points are key.
Here’s a look at what to expect:
