Game involves players; 2 per team, each player has 2 throws per round. Teams are throwing at the other teams’ stanchions with their cups in place. 1 point for a hit, and a drink for the other person who's stanchion was hit, 2 points for a leaner or if you hit both stanchions, 3 points for a ringer and they must kill their beer and 4 points for a Shocker which is a hit on one stanchion, and then a ringer on the other stanchion. Teams play to 21, must win by 2. If you miss both of your throws, you lose a point and must drink, if both of you miss, both lose a point, the team loses a point (3 total) and that team must do 10 push ups. The game begins by a best of 3 rock, paper, and scissors to decide who throws first and from what side.

Drinking game invented by Scott (last name withheld for Google Search reasons) of a small town with a Scottish name in southwest Washington. He is now referred to as The Godfather by players of this game.
Damn! They needed four points to win, and they got a Shocker on their last throw.
Respect The Game, and drink.
