Ever hear of beer pong? Or The World Series of Beer Pong?
Beer Pong is generally played by teams of two in which each team takes turns throwing a table tennis ball into the other team’s cups. The cup is taken away once a ball lands in it, then the contents are eagerly chugged.
If both teammates hit cups, the balls are rolled back and they get to shoot again. The team that successfully hits all of the opponent’s cups wins the game.
Since there are many ways to change up the game, it’s a good idea to quickly go over things like racks and bouncing/swatting before the game begins. The winner of the game typically stays at the table and awaits the next challenger. A list is formed to keep track of who is next to play.
Leave it to young adults to make a drinking game out of throwing a table tennis ball into a cup of beer.
This game can have a lot of rules. For instance, there is the “Elbow/Wrist Rule.”
It’s usually an unspoken rule at house parties that players must keep their elbows behind the table’s edge when shooting. If a wrists rule is in effect, players must keep their wrists behind the table’s edge.
Breaking this rule results means the shot doesn’t count. If the shot is made, the rule breaker may step back and re-shoot the ball.
This tends to be the most argued-over rule in Beer Pong because it is sometimes difficult to determine if the elbow/wrist does indeed cross the plane of the table.
