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 However, if a top is made, the team which originally made the shot tries to make a top as well.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 reach five points wins, or the first team to be two points ahead after five. If there is an occasion where three out of the four players make a cap within four shots, the odd man out is the beer fetcher ("bitch"), and if all four players make back-to-back shots then a social is called and both teams drink their beers.
