Beer pong, also known as “Beirut” or “6-cup,” is a drinking game that is popular among college students and adults. The game is played with a table, cups, and a ping pong ball. The goal of the game is to throw the ball into the cups on the other side of the table, and if the ball lands in a cup, the opposing team must drink the contents of that cup.
The game is played on a long table, with cups set of 6 or 10 up at either end. Beer pong balls. The cups are arranged in a triangle shape, with 4 cups in the back row, 3 cups in the middle row, and 2 cups in the front row (Check the below image). The cups should be filled with beer or any other beverage of your choice.
- The game starts with teams of 2 players on either side of the table.
- The first team throws the ball at the cups on the other side of the table.
- If the ball lands in a cup, the opposing team must drink the contents of that cup and then remove it from the table.
- The team that made the ball into the cup gets to throw again.
- The game continues until one team has no cups left on their side of the table.
- The team that successfully eliminates all the cups on the opposing team’s side of the table is declared the winner.
- Rebuttal: When one team has eliminated all the cups on the opposing team’s side, the opposing team gets one last chance, called a “rebuttal,” to eliminate all the cups on the first team’s side.
- Redemption: If a player makes the ball into a cup, the opposing team can attempt to “redeem” the cup by making a ball into the same cup before the throwing team removes it from the table.
- No bouncing allowed: A ball cannot be thrown by bouncing it off the table.
- No touching: The ball cannot be touched or moved once it has landed in a cup.
- No “accidentally” dropping a ball: If a player drops the ball “accidentally,” that throw does not count and the opposing team gets to throw again.
In conclusion, Beer Pong is a fun and entertaining game that is perfect for parties, gatherings, and events. Remember to play responsibly and follow the rules to ensure a fair and enjoyable game for all players.
