Since you already plan on drinking beer, you can enjoy some brews while enjoying an exciting game of beer pong. If you have played the game before, you know how much fun it can be. If you have never played, get ready for endless fun without having to head out to the bar and spend a ton of money. All you need to get started is a beer pong table, some 16 or 20 ounce plastic cups, some ping pong balls and of course beer.
The game itself is simple, toss a ball into cups on the other side of the table and force your opponent to drink. The easiest way to play is with 4 people, two teams of 2. Each team will fill 10 cups about a quarter full with beer and arrange them in a triangle on their site of the table. Once this is all set-up, you are ready to play. You can flip a quarter to see who goes first.
Once you start, each team takes turns tossing the ping pong ball at the opposing cups. The goal is to land the ball into 1 cup at a time, until you eliminate all of the cups. Once a cup is made, it is removed from the table. The beauty of this game is that both teams will get to enjoy beer and some good competitive fun. Play alternates until all of the cups on one side of the table are gone. The losing team must also drink the cups that are still standing on the winning team’s side. Once those are finished, you can start a new game.
To get good at this game, you need to have or develop good hand eye coordination and the ability to hold your alcohol. Once you get the hang of it, it is incredibly easy and fun to play. Beer is not a requirement as there are a lot of variations to the game, so don’t worry if you do not like the taste of beer. You can use soda, water, liquor or whatever else your little heart desires.
Once you get really good, you can think about investing in an official beer pong table. There are a lot of companies out there that manufacture products with regulation beer pong table dimensions, those that meet all of the standards for tournament and league play. Better yet, most of these tables can be easily customized, so you can get anything you want on them. Once you have your table and start practicing, you can even consider joining a league or tournament where you can win real money.
Whether you are playing a game of pong with beer, or any other type of beverage, it is a fun game for everyone. It can create great memories, enjoyable rivalries and make your Saturday nights much more entertaining. Next time your buddies want to head out to the bar and spend a ton of money, throw the idea of beer pong and how much fun you can have without spending any additional cash.
