They have to place the balloon in the cup and blow it until it fits enough to hold the glass and lift it. The player lifts the cup without touching their hands and places it into another cup. They deflate the balloon and repeat the process until all the cups are stacked together. The player who completes the task first wins the game.

Then you draw numbers and the person whose number is called out picks up any gift from the pile.

Fingers drinking game

This one is a thrilling game about concentration. Place a glass filled with alcohol in the middle of the table, make a circle around it and each player places a finger on the rim of the glass. A designated person counts from three to zero and guesses the number of people who will still have their finger on the glass once the countdown is over. For example, with five people, the person would start the countdown and say "Three, two, one, three." The players have 3 seconds to decide whether they want to keep their finger on the glass or take it off. If the guesser got it right, those 3 people are out of the game according to this example. If wrong, they drink and stay in. The play continues until there’s only one person left. That remaining person finishes the drink that everyone had their fingers on.
