Booboo Pongsubmitted by Sean
I've got a game of pong for the real drinker. For this game you need 2 sets of ten cups on either side, this is for 2 people at the same time, 2 ping pong balls. Lots of beer and also liquor, but not a lot and this is also optional when played with liquor it can get much more intresting. If you are going to play with liquor this is called the death cup and it goes at the head of the pyramid. You also need two wash cups.
You throw the ball into the cup you drink you make both shots the balls go back to the persons that made the shots and they may shoot again. However if the ball is mistakenly shot into the wash cup(boo boo) then you have to drink all of the other players beer and your beer at once. the winner is the one that sinks all pong balls in the opponents cups. This is a game for the true drinker at heart. Enjoy and be merry.

this version was created by J-Pac and DTG, two drunken math majors to make for the most skill oriented, fast and fun game
played on an 8' by 4' sheet of plywood
we don't actually only play with beer, any alcohol you want is legal, rum, mixed drinks, whatever
- Cups are to be filled to the first line on standard keg cups, this is about four ounces
- There is no leaning over the table at any time, if the ball hits you before reaching the end of the table, it counts as going in
- No crossing the line of the table when throwing, this is called leaning
- No bouncing off the table or floor(mathematically harder)
- Bouncing off anything else is legal (walls, people, ceiling, bottles, etc.)
- If it does bounce off something, a cup, an extraneous can or bottle, etc. the other team may swat it away or grab it, but if it goes in before hitting the table or floor, it counts
- If the ball goes in any other cup on your end of the table you must drink that cup, you may move any non-in-play cup the ball is going towards though
- If the ball goes in the cup you must chug that cup before shooting, no sipping
- Six cups, standard triangle shape on each side to start, with water cup on side
- You never have to drink the water cup, ever, if you play, you'll know why, that shit is nasty
- If you knock over a cup, you must refill it and drink it and it counts as being hit, this is alcohol abuse and must be punished
- The team who owns the table starts the night with the balls first, if they are on opposite teams a throw off occurs, after the first game the winning team throws first
- Throw offs: stare at the opposing player count to three and throw without looking at the cups, whoever gets it in wins, this goes on until only one person gets it in
- Alternate which team shoots
- If both members of a team make it, they get the balls back
- Rearrange into a diamond after two cups are hit, a triangle after three, a line long ways on the table after four
- Redemption: the team with their cups cleaned off shoot however many balls are at their end after their last cup is hit (unless the winning team hit the last two cups in one turn, in which case there is no redemption) if they make every ball (one or two) they keep shooting until they miss until they miss (if two balls are still in play they get to shoot the other ball if they haven't yet that time) or they remove all the cups, if the latter happens, the game goes to three cups per side and starts over with the team who initially won throwing first, same redemption and overtime rules apply
- Distractions are allowed and encouraged, but all people must stay at their own end of the table when distracting
- There is no talking about serious shit at the beer pong table
- Any arguments over rules are settled by the owners of the table, if this does not settle the dispute, it is settled like men, rock scissors paper
- If someone passes out, their team loses and the remaining person must drink all the beer (use pro wrestling style three time hand drop to determine consciousness)
- The losing team drinks the winners beer
- Teams are of two people only, no substituting
- Only girls may blow into the cup if the ball is swirling, if it hits beer before it comes out, it counts though
- "Laser shots" which hit the side of the cup and knock it over are illegal, the shot counts as having not gone in, the cup is refilled and the offender must drink one of his own cups
- "Laser shots" which go in the cup but knock it over are legal, but not encouraged, if the ball is inside the cup as it goes over, it counts
- If you are drunk enough to hit your own cups, it counts, you drink and the other team gets the ball
- each teammate shoots once per round, no double shooting for the better player
- If a player uses the restroom, they are to be ridiculed for no less than three rounds for being weak, if they are the first person to break the seal, this harrassing should continue for the entire night
- You must wash the ball off before each shot
- If the ball becomes balanced on the cups as the result of a shot before hitting the table or floor, it is an automatic win (I know of only one time this has been done)
- If the ball goes into an ash tray at any time it must be washed in the sink
- Winners stay on the table, losers fill the cups for the next game
- Winners should also be allowed to pick music, unless they like shit
- Trash talk is half the game, and if you play the Buckfutters or Psycho Thugs, it will be backed up
Century Pongsubmitted by Nicholas
My buddies and I attended John Carroll University in Cleveland, Ohio. We are and always will be a small school, but we are world renowned for our binging capabilities. Hence, we take our beer pong quite seriously, and I have taken part of and been a spectator to many a brawl spawned by beer pong. Anyhow, when the normal style just didn't seem enough, we invented a new one. We called it century pong, on account of there being 100 cups per side. There were either three or four member to a team, and 33 beers poured into each team's cups. The arrangements can vary, and they did tend to get pretty inventive. Two violations could induce a penalty of one cup being taken away: the opposing team either thowing or drinking out of turn. The game usually takes about an hour and a half, which may seem long, but it's so much fun. One last thing, girls simply cannot handle this game. We thought perhaps a select few could, but we quickly learned this is not the case, so no girls, they only knock over the cups, and sometime the table, and can never finish what they started.

12 cups, 6 on each side... 2 balls, 2 wash cups, loads of shit talking
THE TIP OFF...
at start of game... (without a previous winner)
1 ball starts on each side of the table, 1 person from each team closes eyes, and throws their ball... person that makes it into the cup, team gets to go first.
Each player from the team gets 1 shot... if 1 pong ball is sunk, then that beer is consumed, if 2 balls are sunk the two beers are consumed and the balls are returned to be shot again. If only one is made the other team takes their shot...
The formation of the cups are not changed until requested and only when a team is holding both balls... there is no formation change for 5 cups... if a team makes two balls in 1 cup the came is over and the LOSERS drink all remaining, other team should have got that cup faster... beers must be consumed before shots are taken
(applys only to last cup)
if a ball is "rimming out" meaning rolling around inside the cup:
- girls blow
- guys finger - the ball may not come out of the cup wet.
- 6= basic triangle
- 5= none - cups stay
- 4= diamond <>
- 3= 3 cup triangle
- 2= 1 in front of other :
winner stays on..... :)
Cranford, NJ Stylesubmitted by Charlie
- 22 cups
- 2 ping pong balls
- 4 players, 2 per side
- 4 beers, 2 per side
- 10 cup pyramid on either side, 2 wash balls
To start game off, one player from each team will throw to determine possession. However, they can not look at the cups, they must maintain eye contact at all times. When a team gains possession both players shoot. If a ball hits the table before it reaches the cups, opposing team may swat it away. If both players on a side make their shots, possession is retained. Also, if player A makes his shot, and player B on the same team manages to make it into the same cup, the game is over, and their team is victorious. When the last shot is made, the opposing team gets to match the opposing team by having both players attempt to make a shot. If not, then the game is over and the losing team must kill ALL the beer left on the table.

Object of the Game
The object of Beirut is to throw ping pong balls into the "full" cups on the opposing side of the Beirut Table, forcing your opponents to drink the beer in the corresponding cups. Once the cups on one side of the table are completely empty, the team on that side of the table has lost and must forfeit their side of the table to the next competing team.
Rules and Regulations
- One 12-ounce beer must be used to fill a single 6-cup pyramid of cups.
- Each team begins with a single ping-pong ball, at opposing corners of the table. If a winning team is remaining on the table, they choose which corners start with a ball. Additionally, the losers or challengers throw first.
- If a ball is thrown into a full cup on the opponents' side of the table, that team must drink the beer in that cup and replace it in the same location.
- If a ball is thrown into an empty cup on the opponents' side of the table, the team member in front of that cup will choose a cup in front of the thrower that must be drank by the thrower. If no full cups are left in front of the thrower, one may be chosen from anywhere on the throwing team's side of the table.
- Once a ball is thrown, it may not be touched by any player unless it is apparent that the ball will not land in any cup on the destination team's side. If the ball bounces off of the cups on it's destination side, and returns to the thrower's side, it may be intercepted at any time. If this rule is broken, the ball must be returned to the thrower's possession.
- If a player accidentally or purposefully drops a ball into any full cup on their side of the table, the respective team member must drink that cup.
- If a player accidentally or purposefully drops a ball into any empty cup on their side of the table, no action shall be taken.
- If a ball bounces off of a player into a full cup on their side of the table, this cup must be drank. However, if the ball bounces off of a player into an empty cup, play resumes as usual with no penalty.
- At any time in the game, if a player asks an opponent to straighten their cups, the opponent must do so.
- At any time in the game, if a player asks an opponent which cups are empty, the opponent must tell them.
- No player may throw a ball from anywhere in front of their edge of the table. In other words, they may not throw from the sides of the table.
- A player may not throw a ball while they are supposed to be drinking, however, they may pass the ball to their partner to put back into play.
- If all team members on one team are drinking at the same time (cup is still on the lips or still has beer in it) for any reason related to the game, they must forfeit the balls to the opposing team. They may wait until they are both finished drinking to do so.
- Players may throw balls at any of their opponents' cups at any time.
- If a cup is knocked over by a valid throw, the cup should be refilled to its original level and drank by the player in front of that cup.
- If a cup on a player's own side of the table is knocked over due to carelessness, the player must refill that cup to the original level and drink the contents.
- At the onset of any game, two opponents may opt to include a "challenge cup" in the game. This must be agreed upon before the game commences.
- Once the ball has been determined out of play, the first player to gain possession of the ball may use it for the next throw.
- Players may not throw balls at their opponents cups if the opponent is in the process of drinking one of their cups.
- The challengers must refill the winning team's cups, however, the winning team may choose which side to play on after the fill has been completed. This keeps the size of the fills fair.
- If a team is possession of all the balls in play, they may hold them to allow a team member leave the table for a brief period of time.
