What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The game is newly released and is my first. You can expect there are some bugs, feedback on these are welcome. I would also like to get early feedback on what features should be added in addition to the ones already planned.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“1 year”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“I plan to address any bugs identified by players, as well as add some additional features like better integration with Steam and the ability to create custom "house rules" in addition to the default ones available already. We may add in-game integration with voice chat software if desired by users.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is playable online, each game includes 52 cards, one player at a time selects a card from the circle and drops it in the middle on top of the King's Cup. Based on the card selected a player or players will have to take an action (generally leading to someone drinking). Actions typically happen in the real world or in a voice chat room. The game ends when the final King is pulled. Several "mini-games" exist for special cards like 7-is-heaven, which requires all players to press the up arrow (or w key) and the last player to do so loses. The game involves verbal communication after each card is pulled, so it is expected that players use voice chat software in parallel to the game to communicate. There is no in-game chat. See the "About Game" section for full details and controls.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Price may increase moderately when we release, I expect it will always be less than $10.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Reading reviews and email feedback ( will be our main community inputs. I will keep an eye out on any social media feedback as well, such as Reddit or other forums. There is no dedicated forum at this time.”

About This Game

King's Cup is a drinking game played online with friends. A player pulls a card from the card circle and places it on top of the cup in the center face side up. Based on the card that player or all players must take an action, usually leading to one or more people taking a drink. It is recommended to have 3 or more players before starting the game and to use a VoIP chatting service like Discord.

  • Thumbs up: Right Click or Space
  • Heaven: W or Up-arrow
  • Date: Left click the heart next to another player's name
  • Drag a card: Left click and hold, move your mouse to move the card. (You can only drag card when it is your turn)
  • Flip a card: Drag it over the cup, release left click and it will flip (You can only flip a card when it is your turn)
  • Rename your player: Click your name, then type the new name you would like. Press enter when finished.

Rules for cards

The default rules are listed below. You can also create your own rules and change the text and minigames started by each card.

  • Ace - Waterfall, everyone begins chugging at the same time. Players can only stop drinking when the person in front of them stops, the first person to stop is the person who pulled the card.
  • 2 - You, choose someone to drink
  • 3 - Me, the person who pulled the card drinks
  • 4 - Whores, all the girls drink
  • 5 - Thumbmaster, the person who pulled this card is the Thumbmaster. At any point, the Thumbmaster can thumbs up (right click). This starts a mini-game where all other players must thumbs up (right click). The last person who hasn't thumbs-upped has to drink. The Thumbmaster can do this at any point during the game (until someone else is the Thumbmaster).
  • 6 - Dicks, the guys drink
  • 7 - Heaven, everyone must point up (press W or the up-arrow) as fast as possible. The last person remaining who hasn't pointed up has to drink.
  • 8 - Date, the person who pulled the card chooses a date. If either person in this date has to drink, both must drink. Some players allow only one couple at a time, some allow multiple couples and/or a person to be in 2+ couples at a time. This is up to the players in the game.
  • 9 - Rhyme, the person who pulled the card says a word. Going in order, everyone must rhyme with this word. If everyone rhymes, the rhyme keeps going in order from the top of the player list until someone cannot rhyme. This person drinks and the game resumes. Duplicate words are not allowed.
  • 10 - Categories, person who pulled the card says a category (e.g. car manufacturers). Everyone must name something in this category (e.g. Ford, Chevy), starting with the person who pulled the card and going in order according to the player list. This continues until someone cannot name something in the category (no duplicates). That person drinks and the game resumes.
  • J - Rule, the person who pulled the card creates a new rule everyone must follow. For example, "everyone must speak in a German accent". Some players allow multiple rules, some only keep one rule at a time. This is up to the players.
  • Q - Questionmaster, anyone who answers (or responds to) a question asked by the Questionmaster must drink. The Questionmaster should try to trick players by occasionally asking questions like "Whose turn is it?". Only one Questionmaster exists at a time.
  • K - King, when the 1st, 2nd and 3rd King is pulled that person takes a drink. When the 4th and final King is pulled, that person is crowned King and must take a ceremonial shot. The game typically ends here, but if you want to keep going until no cards remain you can.
