  • Determination to crush the competition

Anchorman Drinking Game Rules

Separate all the players evenly into two or more teams.

Fill a pitcher in the middle of the table with beer. Usually at least three beers will be enough.

Each team will lineup on a side the start to bounce a quarter into the cup in front of them as quickly as possible.

If a player successfully bounces the quarter into the cup, the team yells out how many times they have made the cup. That player then keeps going until they miss.

Once they miss, they pass the cup to their next teammate.

When the team eventually makes 21 shots, they must bounce the quarter into the pitcher of beer.

The first team to sink the quarter into the pitcher wins!

The winning team gets to choose the order that the losing team drinks the pitcher.

Each player on the losing team can only get one go at chugging the pitcher, so once they stop the drinking must be started by the next player.

The last player to have to drink is the Anchorman and must finish the entire pitcher!

Anchorman drinking game combines the skill of fast-paced quarters with the fear of having to drink an entire pitcher. Strategy comes into play when choosing your team and making sure you have good players so you don’t get stuck as the anchorman! Check out some more great drinking games to keep the party going here!
