To kick off the game someone declares “Let’s get the ball rolling!”
From there players say any of the following phrases to determine who will speak next.
- “Whiz” – The ball moves on to the next player
- “Bounce” – Ball skips the next player and moves on to the following
- “Boing” – The ball bounces off the wall and switches direction
If any player stutters, messes up the word, or speaks out of turn, they lose the game. They must down their drink. Feel free to switch up the words after a few games to keep things good and confusing.
