Caps is a drinking game that was started in Glendive, MT[citation needed]. It involves throwing bottle caps into 16oz-20oz beer mugs (North America, North Europe, and Argentina), or at another other bottle with a cap balanced on open beer bottles upside down. (France).

Four players split into two teams seated 8 to 16 feet apart(butts behind the cup), with a beer mug filled with beer placed between both players. Each side take turns throwing 1 cap each into their opponents' mug. Each time a team makes a shot, the other team gets a chance to "top it" or "match the shot" (rebuttal) by making a shot. If no cancel is made, the team that made the original shot or last top gets the points while the other team must drink a full beer between them. However, if a top is made, the team which originally made the shot tries to make a top as well. This exchange continues until a top shot is missed, at which point the team that missed drinks its beer and a point or points may be awarded to the team that made the last successful shot. The game then continues with both teams taking turns shooting. The first team to 5 wins or the first team to win by 2 after 5. If there is an occasion where 3 out of the 4 players make a cap within 4 shots the odd man out is the beer fetcher (bitch), and if all 4 players make back to back shots than a social is called and both teams drink their beers.
