Who else plays this? If you're not in the know, you arrange 10 cups, pyramid style on each side of a table and fill them however full you want of beer. two people on a team usually, with ping pong balls you try to get your ball into any of the opponents' cups. The first one to rid the other persons' side of cups(they're discarded after you drink) wins. "You sink, they drink." excuse that weak phrase.

Businesses get in on drinking game

 

By JEFFREY GETTLEMAN

 

PHILADELPHIA - The bar is packed, the floor is wet, and dozens of glassy-eyed young people are squeezed around tables trying to lob Ping-Pong balls into cups of beer.

 

It is the final round of a beer pong championship, sponsored by a maker of portable beer pong tables, and all across the bar, as one team scores points, the other happily guzzles beer.

 

"It's awesome," said 22-year-old Chris Shannon, a senior at Drexel. "If you win, you win. If you lose, you drink. There's no negative."

 

Drinking games have been around since Dionysus. But a whole new industry has taken off around them, making the games more popular, more intense and more dangerous, according to college administrators who say the games are a thin cover for binge drinking.

 

In January, thousands of players are expected at the first World Series of Beer Pong, sponsored by a beer pong accessories company and held on the outskirts of Las Vegas.

 

This past summer, Anheuser-Busch unveiled a game it calls Bud Pong. The company, which makes Budweiser, is promoting tournaments and providing equipment to distributors.

 

"We created it as an icebreaker for young adults to meet each other," Francine Katz, a spokeswoman for Anheuser-Busch.

 

But she said Bud Pong was not intended for underage drinkers because promotions were held in bars, not on campuses.

 

And it does not promote binge drinking, she said, because official rules call for water to be used, not beer. The hope is that those on the sidelines enjoy a Bud.

 

On the ground, though, it may be a different story. At the Esso Club near Clemson University, Jessica Twilley, a bartender, said she had worked at several Bud Pong events and had "never seen anyone playing with water."

 

When told about the Esso Club, Katz responded that her information was that the club used water.

 

Budweiser is not the only brand using games. One recent Miller campaign featured spin the bottle, and its distributors have promoted beer pong tournaments as well.

 

Henry Wechsler, director of the College Alcohol Study at Harvard, said he was "aghast that companies who posture themselves as promoting responsible drinking promote drinking games, which by their nature involve heavy drinking."

 

As for the Bud Pong water defense, Wechsler said, "Why would alcohol companies promote games that involve drinking water? It's preposterous."

Drinking games are for people without the dedication to drink heavily on their own and that are so uninteresting that they can't think of anything fun to do while they're drinking heavily.

fags need drinking games

rockstars never needed "games" to make drinking interesting. It only goes to show how boring you gotta be to not have a good time in simple company of your closest peeps.

Gay. I see this shit at every colledge party we crash. It's always the same kind of party. They try and charge us at the door, we say no we got our 40s. When our 40s are empty we keep refilling at the keg, we tag the bathrooms and bedrooms and if there's access we bomb the rooftop. Then someone say's something about anything and get's stomped and in the process the beerpong table gets knocked over.

Fucking colledge kids.

Gambler's on point. Never tried it with shots, but that might be interesting if you're losing...

 

Used to play "flip-cup" when I was in school.

 

Except we took shots of southern comfort, instead of half a cup of beer.

 

Although the games only lasted about 10-15 min, the aftermath was usually quite horrific for anyone involved.

:haha:
