Beer Pong

There are many different house rules and regulations when it comes to beer pong. Different countries use different words and even different table owners can make different rules. First of all, the table. A regulation beer pong table is 9 feet by 5 feet. (Mine is 8 feet by 4 feet because it's all we could fit in the car) You can get a nice, hard piece of plywood at any Home Depot like store. Maybe $25. Then you need 4 Beer mugs. You can go to for the beer mugs. Make sure you get the 1 Liter Oktoberfest style Masskrug. Then just buy some ping pong paddles and a net and you're set. Oh, and a ton of beer of course. The goal now is to obviously get the ball into the mug. If it hits the mug and does not go in, it is one sip. If it goes in, you must chug the beer. Needless to say, copious amounts of alcohol are consumed during a battle of beer pong.

Here are some critical verbiage you must know in order to look foolish which in beer pong is not looking foolish, if you know what I mean.

  • Rim Sinker = When your opponent hits the rim of your mug and you react quickly enough to sink the ball directly into his mug. Probably the second most difficult sink in all of beer pong
  • Swish = When you sink the ball directly into the beer in the mug without hitting any of the mug. This is the single most difficult sink in beer pong.
  • Rim Job = Hit the rim of the mug, 3 sips for your opponent
  • Mug Hit = Hit the side of the mug, 1 sip for your opponent
  • Pong Dance = Not to be confused with pole dance. This is when you sink the ball in your opponents must celebrate.
  • Bouncer = This is the most humiliating way to be sunk. Your opponent bounces the ball into your mug while you are not paying attention.
This would qualify as a rudimentary introduction into the world of Beer Pong, but it will suffice for the short term. The truest and surest way to learn would be to actually play a few rounds. Many pictures to come!
