Ah yes, the classic game of Flip the Table. Initially popularized as a way to get to know dormmates freshman year at prestigious universities, it soon became a quick easy game to liven any party. (While this game may seem quite similar to the old Discordian game of Sink it actually came first and those losers were in fact copying us (not the other way around.))

Flip the Table is a game played by a group of people (usually co-ed), often in an informal setting purely for entertainment such as a birthday party. The game starts with any number of players and a table that the number of players may gather around; the players are arranged in a circle (or other closed figure if space is constrained; a double line is sometimes used) facing the table, with the people standing in the circle just outside of that table. A non-playing individual may observe or find more interest in a musical instrument. While the music is playing. The players in the circle all in unison grab the table. With all their strength they thrust upward at once, and the table is (usually) thrown into the air to come crashing back down, perhaps in a new, and more interesting, way.
