It’s that time again – the 3rd annual Charity Flip Cup Tournament is going down on April 8th at 7 p.m.! Flip-cuppers from all over will bring their A-game to Field House until one team has out-flipped ‘em all! ChatterBlast is delighted to be part of this event AGAIN, this year with our friends from Mazeppa Productions. Check out last year’s pics and you’ll see why Philly ChitChat named the Charity Flip Cup Tournament his number one event of 2015.

If you suffered from a case of FOMO because you were too busy last year, now is your chance to get in. Rally up your best team of five and start practicing! But before game day, you may have a few questions. Here’s what you need to know.

What is Flip Cup and how do I play?

Are you from another country? Did you not go to college? Let some grandmothers teach ya.

How many people can play on a team?

You are limited to five (5) players per team.

Can I have more than 5 people on my team?

Didn’t we answer this above? No! If you have more than 5 players, you must create another team.

I don’t want to play but I would still like to come and support. Can I do that?

Of course. There are two (2) spectator options.

  1. $10 – does not include free beer.
  2. $30 – Includes free beer. Nice.

What should I wear?

Beer is going to be everywhere, so where something that you wouldn’t mind getting a little wet. However, note that there is an award for best team outfit! Come looking sweet! 

Will tickets be available at the door?

Sort of. The only tickets available at the door will be for spectators. All team participants must purchase their tickets in advance.

How does my team win a match?

Each match consists of five (5) rounds, so matches will be determined by a “Best Out of Five” system.

If we lose our first game, are we out of the tournament?

There will be an open hour of game play from 8p.m.–9 p.m. Here you’ll be able to warm up, sip some beer and get ready for the tournament. Be warned though: Once the tournament starts, it will be single elimination.

What? One hour of open play?

Yes, we know each team has to get warmed up before they take home the winning prize. You’ll have from 8–9pm to play other teams, scope out the competition and strategize how your team will flip its way to the top.

So, if my team is out do we still enjoy the event?

If you paid the money, you get the deal! We’ll have various tables set up for fun so you can continue to play flip cup all night long against other teams, enjoying your free beer!

What does the winning team receive?

A gorgeous trophy and bragging rights for the entire year! Adulation of your peers, and the inner-warmth of knowing you’re the best.
