The 5th Annual Charity Flip Cup Tournament: FAQ

February 28, 2018

It’s that time again, folks. The 5th Annual Charity Flip Cup Tournament is going DOWN on April 13th at 7 p.m.!

Renowned flip cuppers from all over the globe will once again bring their A-game to Field House until one team has out-flipped the rest! ChatterBlast is, once again, delighted to be part of this event with our friends from Stonewall Sports Philadelphia. Stonewall’s commitment to charity and nonprofit organizations (they’ve helped raise more than $100,000 (!!!) for LGBTQ nonprofits) made this partnership a perfect fit.

Check out last year’s pics and you’ll see what all the fuss is about.

If you suffered from a case of FOMO because you were too busy last year, you probably should have. Because you missed out. But the good news is that now is your chance for redemption. Flip Cup 5 is going to be our best year yet, so rally up your best team and start practicing.

Before game day, you may have a few questions. Here’s what you need to know.

What’s “flip cup”?

Um, ok. Are you from another country? Did you not go to college? Allow this bro on YouTube to explain:

How many people can play on a team?

This year, you will need five (5) team members on a team. No more, no less. Five (5) team members will play in each game. No subs this year.

Can I have more than 5 people on my team?

No more, no less. This has changed from last year when up to eight members were allowed per team. Please organize your teams accordingly.

Is there anything else new this year?

Yes! In honor of our fifth flippin’ anniversary, we’re introducing a VIP TEAM option, which nets you and your team deluxe #FlipCup5 t-shirts, a home table, food courtesy of Field House, and  more!

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

Of course! Spectator tickets are also available for $35. This gets you it gets you free beer, you can participate in post-tournament Flip Cup (non bracket) games, and hang out with the coolest kids in town while knowing you just donated $35 to two great local causes!

What should I wear?

Beer is going to be everywhere, so wear something that you wouldn’t mind getting a little wet. We highly encourage an organized team uniform for overall morale and spirit. Come looking radical.

Will tickets be available at the door?

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

How does my team win a game?

Each game 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 gameplay from 8 p.m.–9 p.m. Here, you’ll warm up, sip some beer and get ready for the tournament. Be warned though: Once the tournament starts, it’s single-game elimination. You lose, you’re out.

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 8–9 p.m. 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!

Help! What if my diet excludes things like gluten or alcohol?

We will offer a cider keg for all gluten-free flip cuppers. For those who wish to play sans alcohol, we will have numerous beverage alternatives available.

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.

What if I have more questions?

You can always shoot ’em over to
