Quarters is a popular drinking game which involves players bouncing a quarter off of a table in an attempt to have the quarter land, usually into a shotglass (or cup) on that table. The game is popular at parties, especially in colleges and universities in the United States and Canada, as well as in Germany. It is also played in South Africa, where it is known as coinage.
The player bouncing the quarter is referred to as the "shooter." In some variations the glass is empty and each player has a separate glass to drink from, while in other variations the glass that the shooter is aiming for contains an alcoholic beverage.
The quarter is customarily bounced on the face whether heads or tails. Some games may allow a player to bounce the quarter on the edge, particularly by rolling it down their nose.
If a player makes his or her first shot, s/he can choose to pass the glass to any player who does not currently have a glass.
The players must determine beforehand how much is to be consumed each time a player is required to drink. This depends on the variation being played and the appetites of the players.
Numerous variations and special rules are available on the Internet.
