A vessel: The first and arguably most important element of King’s Cup is a vessel. Whether it’s a jug, a chalice, your mum’s priceless china vase, the kettle or the dog bowl, it really doesn’t matter. All it’s got to do is be watertight and be able to hold a lot of liquid. In fact, the funnier the vessel the more hilarious it will be when the loser has to down its contents. So give the house a good squiz, it’ll be worth it.A pack of cards: There are a lot of apps and random websites that’ll help you draw a card if you’re really desperate, but there is nothing better than a good old analogue pack of cards. Take out the jokers, shuffle and spread the cards out on a table in a circle around the aforementioned vessel. Make sure each card is slightly touching its neighbour so the cards form a complete circle (we’ll explain why later). Oh and double check you have all four kings, otherwise, the game is going to end in a huge anti-climax. Some friends: King’s cup works best when played with 4-10 people but, really it doesn’t matter. Whether there’s two of you or 52, you’re all gonna get pissed.Lots of drinks: Well… We’re not here to f*ck spiders.
