Ultimate Pringles, generally known as "U.P" is an extreme sport originating in Belfast, Northern Ireland. The game consists off an unlimited amount of players attempting to catch a flying Pringles lid (refered to in U.P terms as the disc). The game is much like frisbee only much more complicated and competitive, at times getting quite violent when players collide in an attempt to catch the disc. The size and transparency of the disc also gives amateurs a hard time adjusting to the fast paced sport, though coloured discs are available (and recommended) for beginners and also for playing at night (it should be noted that coloured discs have a higher gauge than standard discs).
The aim of a game is simply to show skill and attempt moves, such as "The Dive Bomb" (when a disc swoops downwards at great speed, making for a difficult catch) "Glider" (when the disc flys smoothly at a slow spectacular motion usually over great distance) or the "Double/Triple/Quadruple Touch" (when the disc is hit multiple times as oppose being to caught by players and continues to fly).
The game usually ends when the disc breaks (after constant abuse) or is lost due to a poor throw, or simply when participants give up after exhaustion.
