Do you miss playing that favorite drinking game that you enjoyed every weekend in college? Do you even remember what fun games you played in college? If you have ever been to a college party, backyard party or football tailgate, chances are youve played the game of beer pong. It is one of the most popular drinking and party games out there and will be for years to come. If you are new to the game or have never played before, here is an article that can serve as a beer pong guide for dummies.
In order to start a game of pong, you will need a few supplies. The first thing you need are some 16-ounce or 20-ounce plastic cups and some beer. You will want to fill all of the cups about a quarter of the way full with beer. Once that is done, you will want to arrange 10 cups in a triangular formation on each side of the table. You can use a kitchen table or picnic table, but it is recommended that you use an official beer pong table. If you dont have one, you can easily find your own beer pong table online or at a local store.
On top of the cups, beer and table, you will need some durable ping pong balls and some additional cups for water. The object of the game is to toss the balls back and forth at the opposing teams cups, so it is important that you use durable balls. Also, you want to have some cups with water in them, so you can wash the balls off before each turn. Beer pong balls can bounce off the table onto the floor, which can get them quite dirty. Use the water cups to make sure the balls are clean before tossing, so no one has to drink a cup of dirty beer.
To start the game, you will want to have at least 4 people, so you can have two teams of two people. Once you get going, each player takes turns throwing two balls at the opposite side of the table. The objective is to make them into the cups. When this happens, a cup is removed and consumed by the other team. The first team to eliminate all of the opposing cups will deemed the winner. Sounds easy, right?
The great thing about this game is that it can be played anywhere. There are so many portable tables out there that you can now bring your game of beer pong to any party. Beer pong has become incredibly popular at tailgate parties, backyard parties, college parties and all sorts of outdoor parties. If you have played before, you know how much fun it truly is. If you have never played and are looking to get involved, you can use some of the ideas above to help get you started.
