Dimes Drinking Game

Dimes -

The Dimes drinking game is somewhat of a more frustrating version of quarters. Rather than trying to land your coin in a cup, you’re trying to land it on top of one. So no matter how good you think you are at quarters, this will not be an easy task.

What You’ll Need

For this game you’ll need a few dimes per player, then a short cup or ash tray in the center of the table. And of course some drinks.

How To Play Dimes

First place the glass or ash tray in the center of the table, upside down. If you’re using a glass make sure it’s a short one because dimes don’t tend to bounce too high.

This is a game of speed, so shoot as fast as you can and don’t wait for your turn. On the count of three, play begins and players start bouncing. The goal is to land your dime on top of the glass without it falling off.

Be careful though, if another player knocks your dime off with your dime you must shoot again and try to get a new one on there. Whoever is the last player to get a dime up, loses the game and needs to drink equal to the number of players.

If at any point someone is stockpiling dimes and has more than 3 times, they must stop and take a drink before shooting. Other players can look around and call out players with more than 3 dimes.


Unlike quarters the dimes drinking game is very fast paced. It’s an exciting way to down a couple beers. The most difficult part is finding a good glass that will work well for this game, but if none are available you could always search for a good bowl or something else to turn upside down. As always please remember to drink responsibly.
