Beer Pong Dilemmas Solved

Posted by Luke

Problem #1:

Your Beer Pong skills are practically non-existent. Despite your efforts, you always seem to find yourself at the wrong end of a nasty cup of the cheap booze that nobody else wanted, while your opponent remains virtually sober at the other end of the table. How can you you improve your chances of winning? Do you practice your wrist movements? Take tactical 'fake sips' from your drink before the game to ensure that your friends are already more drunk than you are?

Perhaps the answer is simple: More cups!

Now with our 50 Pack of American Style Red Solo Cups, you can massively improve your chances of scoring, even after a few drinks. We also have a pack of 50 Blue Solo Cups, making it easy to set up opposing teams. Of course, you'll have to make sure that you get enough alcohol to fill the extra cups, or more friends to help you get through it.

Problem #2:

Imagine yourself in a crowded room, your friends are cheering you on. All you have to do is sink this little white ball into one of the opposite cups. You take a deep breath and throw, but the pressure is just too much, you've botched it! The ball shoots across the room, bouncing between the legs of your spectators on its journey. You look in horror as it rolls smoothly into the cobweb ridden, stale crumb infested abyss of your kitchen. It's game over.

Don't let this happen to you! With our pack of 5 Beer Pong Balls, you can ensure that one rogue ball doesn't spell the end for your Beer Pong fun.

5 Ways to Make Beer Pong More Challenging

Posted by Luke

If you're an experienced beer pong player, you may be starting to get bored of it. Where's the fun in sinking all of your opponent's cups before they've even landed a single shot? Why bother playing if the outcome is a forgone conclusion?

Well, for those who are finding that the game of beer pong has lost its challenge, we have a few suggestions. Here are five sure-fire ways of making beer pong fun again!


1. Spin Pong

A moving target is harder to hit, right? You may be able to throw a ball into a cup that's stood there like a lemon, but will you still be such a hotshot when the cups are SPINNING?



2. Penalties for Missing

The trouble with your traditional game of beer pong is the stakes - they're just too low. There's no punishment for missing...unless, of course, you enforce your own! For example, you could decree that players must drink a cup for every miss - the game would be over pretty quickly, but it would certainly be a bigger challenge! Alternatively, your opponent could choose an embarrassing forfeit for you to perform when you miss a shot.

3. Reverse the Rules

Here's another problem with the game as it's usually played: the worse you do, the drunker you get. If your opponent has lost 5 cups and you haven't lost any, they're 5 beers drunker than you, which makes it far easier for you to sink the remaining cups and win the game. So why not switch things up a little? If your ball lands in one of your enemy's cups, YOU have to drink the contents of that cup. This means that the game gets progressively more difficult as you play - it's not too hard to land that first shot, but wait and see how difficult it is to get that last cup when you've already drunk 9.

4. Play in the Pool

Trust us, it becomes a lot more difficult to take careful aim when you're treading water at the same time!


5. Stand Further Back

Maybe - and this is just a thought - you're finding it a little too easy because you're stood too close to the table? Take a few steps back, hotshot.

Beer Pong: The Next Level - Extreme Rules

Posted by Luke

Lads and lasses, ladies and gents, it's a pleasure to welcome you back! This week we're keen to delve into the mysterious (and awesome) world of Beer Pong once more - but in a lot more depth. That's right guys - we've already showed you the basics in our handy Beer Pong for Beginners Guide found herewhich will tell you everything you need to know to get yourself acquainted with Beer Pong: the party game that will change your life. 

Now if you're a seasoned Beer Pong player, or if in the style of Pringles - you've had a pop and you just can't nor do you want to stop and you're dying to scratch that itch and satisfy your cravings then folks, you have undoubtedly come to the right place. Here we consider Beer Pong a sport of the highest order, and in this blog post we'll be bringing you the extreme rules - the rules that will turn this light-hearted game into a battle to the death drunk. These rules allow Beer Pong to become the competition  it was destined to be - folks, it's time to bring out the big guns.

Follow these rules for Extreme Beer Pong - taking your game of Beer Pong to the next level. 


1. No elbows

This means no elbows are allowed to touch the Beer Pong table or anywhere near it. You shoot with your elbows behind the table. Any elbows will result in a drinking penalty, or if you're feeling harsh - the removal of one of the offending team's cups from the table.

2. No wrists 

The same as the elbow rule - but much, much harder. This rule means you shoot with your wrists behind the table, making the opposing targets even further away. This rule is only for the most seasoned of players - this makes Beer Pong pretty hard.

3. Re-Racking

Up to three times in any game each team can request for the opposing team's cups to be re-racked. This means you move the cups into some sort of formation where they're touching, rather than leaving lots of gaps. We might argue that this occasionally makes the game easier, but these are Beer Pong rules for you to use at your disposal, so use them wisely young grasshoppers.

4. Bouncing 

If you bounce a ball and it makes it into a cup - either accidentally or otherwise, this is a trick shot and means you can remove the cup which the ball bounced into and one other cup of your choice. 

5. Hitting the Rim

If your ball hits the rim and bounces out, without landing in a cup then we have a competition on our hands. A dirty pint is created and you are challenged to either hit the rim again or get the ball in the cup - if you manage it the other team shares the dirty pint, if you don't then bottoms up my friend! 

6. No Lonely Cups 

If you notice a "lonely" cup - which means one cup which is separated from the rest on the table, you can call it and attempt to hit it. If you miss or you hit another cup then your shot is invalid and you lose a cup of the opposition's choosing, if you hit it then that cup and another of your choice can be removed from the table. 

7. No Blowing or Pushing

If a ball is rolling around the cup or the rim, or is not settling in the cup then no blowing or pushing the ball is allowed. If anyone attempts to intercept the ball or cheat then you lose a cup. You must all wait patiently, for Beer Pong is not a game to be rushed. 

8. Shots 

Once one team has one, there could well be a number of other cups left on the table. Play these cups one by one - if you miss, you drink a shot, if you get it then you get to nominate another player of your choice to drink a shot. 

The beauty of Beer Pong is that you can make as many exotic and exciting rules as you wish. You might want to adopt a no swearing rule - offering a free shot to the opposing team whenever someone swears? The Beer Pong rule options are literally endless. Just remember: this is not a game for babies - you need to take it seriously, and play as if your life depended on it! 

Beer Pong Rules: How to Play

Posted by Luke


What's that? You’ve never played beer pong before? Don’t worry – we’d be more than happy to show you the ropes! It’s pretty straightforward, and once you know how to do it, you can teach your friends and organise a tournament!

You will need:

  • 1 x Beer Pong Table
  • 2 x Ping-Pong Balls
  • 12 x Paper Cups
  • Lots of beer (or another beverage of your choosing)

How to play:

Two people (or four, if you want to play in teams) stand at opposite ends of the pong table. Fill all 12 cups with beer, and place six at each end, arranged in this triangle formation:

Give each player a ping-pong ball, and you’re ready to start! Players take it in turns to throw their ball at the other player’s cups; if the ball lands in one of your cups, you have to drink that cup’s contents. The first player to drain all six cups is the loser!

It really is that simple, so grab the essentials from our Beer Pong department now and give it a whirl at your next party! Oh, and if you want to spice things up a bit, you could even try some of these additional rules...

Optional rules:

  • Each player has a separate drink set aside from the pong table. If you miss a throw (i.e. if your ball doesn’t land in a cup), you have to take a swig from your own drink!
  • The losing player has to perform a forfeit, as chosen by the winner.
  • Give each cup a number, and stipulate that each player must hit his opponent’s cups in the correct order (1-6). If a ball lands in the wrong cup, the thrower must perform a forfeit.
