Ruskie is the commonly used nickname for the game known as RUSSIAN, or RUSSIAN BERUIT. This game, lovingly referred to as the Game of the Gods, involves ten 16 ounce cups set up Beruit
style on each side of a standard Beruit table. The cups are then completely filled with beer; this results in upwards of about 15.5 beers per side.
