Beer Pong is one of the most famous college drinking games which involves two teams of 2 players at opposite ends of a long table standing over 6 (or more) plastic cups filled with beer. The object is to thow the ping pong ball into the plastic cups at the other end of the table, and your opponents have to drink the beer from the cup your ball went into and remove it from the game. Both teams play until one team makes the last cup. Cups of water have magical powers in this game because they somehow are able to clean ping pong balls that get dirty.
Re-racking is when one or more cups are removed, and the cups need to be re-organized. Some re-rack when there are 3 cups left, some re-rack after every shot made.
Redemption is what the losing team gets when the winning team makes the last cup. (This is only if both players on the winning team did not make both shots) The losing team gets a chance to try and tie it up and go into a 3 cup overtime. One of the two players on the team must make all remaining cups to force overtime.
Note: Be sure to ask about the "house rules" before starting to play, so they are established before the end of the game to avoid controversy.
There are many variations to beer pong which include different styles of play, type of shots allowed, number of cups, and cup setup. It is important to find out of bounce shots are allowed, and if so how many cups they count for, in some games bouce shots are not allowed, and in other games bounce shots can count as 2 cups. Some play with ping pong paddles, some fill their cups with water instead of beer, and drink a side beverage, if their cup is made.
