Arrange the cups according to one of the designs here. Mark a spot on the floor to make sure all players stand at least 4 feet from the closest cup.
Single player: Bounce the ball into the cups to remove them with as few tries possible
Multi-player: Bounce the ball into more cups than your opponent(s)
Stand at the floor line to make sure you are at least 4 feet away from the closest cup.
Throw/toss/bounce the ball and try to get the ball in one of the cups.
If the ball lands in a cup, remove that cup from the rest and take out the ball to use for your next try. Keep track of how many tries it takes to remove all the cups.
- Decide how many rounds you would like to play (5, 10, etc.).
- The 1st player should stand at the floor line to make sure you are 4 ft away from cups.
- 1st player throws/tosses/bounces ball aiming for cups. If the the ball lands in a cup, remove it and take another turn. If the ball misses the cups, give ball to next player.
- The next player throws/tosses/bounces the ball aiming for cups. Take another turn if the ball bounces into a cup as stated above.
Repeat this until the players have completed all rounds or until all the cups have been removed by one player.
Count the number of small and large cups to determine the total number of points for each player.
- Red solo cup = 1 point
- Clear solo cup = 2 points
- Small dixie cup = 3 points
