It is very popular at colleges and universities around the world, particularly at the University of Rhode Island. At URI, we all play a little differently, which is part of the fun, but since we are all at URI a lot of these rules are university-wide.
On August 7, 2006 the global group "OFFICIAL UNIVERSITY OF RHODE ISLAND KINGS RULES!" was created on www.facebook.com finally declaring to the rest of the world the fine version of Kings that URI students have enjoyed for so long.
Here is the rough draft of the official University of Rhode Island Kings rules. You don't have to play by the "official" rules obviously, just use them and the other possibilities to create your own game:
OFFICIAL URI KINGS RULES
A - Pick one of these for the entire game: Social (Everyone drinks. This is better if you don't have a ton of alcohol.) OR Waterfall (Great when you have plenty of alcohol. Stand up and when you start drinking, everybody starts drinking. When you are done the person to your left can stop drinking whenever they want, and when that person stops then the person to their left can stop drinking whenever they want. It goes full circle, basically the last person is screwed.)
2 - For you (Pick someone to drink twice.)
3 - For me (You drink 3 times.)
4 - Categories (Condom brands, sex positions, cars, movies, music, sports teams, etc.)
5 - Coin Flip (Flip a coin. If it lands on heads you remove 1 article of clothing. If it lands on tails you pick someone else to remove one article of their clothing. Choose the rules before hand, such as whether shoes count as clothing.)
6 - Chicks (All girls drink. "But what if there are no girls playing?" you ask? Then give up at life. Go play Dungeons & Dragons or World of Warcraft, nerd.)
7 - Heaven (Last person to point to the ceiling drinks.)
8 - Never have I ever... (Other people drink if they've done it.)
9 - Bust-a-Rhyme (Make up a sentence and the next person has to have the last word rhyme. The person who messes up drinks.)
10 - Men (All guys drink.)
J - Spin the bottle (It was fun in elementary school, it is fun now.)
Q - Truth-or-dare (See above. Choose the rules before hand, such as who asks. Maybe the person to your left or right.)
K - Pour a portion of your drink in center cup (Name of the game- Person to pick the 4th King drinks it.)
8 other Kings possibilities-
-Questions (Keep asking questions around in a circle until someone messes up, loser drinks.)
-Thumb wrestle (Loser drinks.)
-Blinking contest (Loser drinks.)
-8:Make-a-date/Pick-a-mate (Pick someone to drink with.)
-4:To the floor (Last person to touch floor drinks.)
-Nose touch (Last person to touch their nose drinks.)
-Thumb Master (Only if you are playing at a table: Every time this person puts his thumb on the table everyone else has to, last person to do this drinks.)
-Make-a-rule (You get to make a drinking rule, such as no-cussing, and whoever breaks the rule drinks.)
On another note, it's common to see 5 - Guys. But "five" and "guy" don't rhyme, while "ten" and "men" do. Do whatever you want.
