So I played Beer Pong for the first time ever at a party on Friday. Now grant it most of you are probably thinking, “Give me a break! This guy is 25 years old and has never played Beer Pong before? Yeah right!” Yeah well that is right so deal with it. I’m a deprived individual.

Now maybe it was just my teachers but I found the game to be quite confusing. From what I gathered these are the rules to the game.
  • There are two teams of two players on opposite sides of the ping pong table trying to get two ping pong balls in 6 different cups.
  • The rules apparently can change at any time depending on the players and the variations of play style they have (or have not) played before.
  • Your teammates don’t tend to like it when you yell and mock them for playing crappie.
  • Each arrangement style of cups has a name, like the “Triangle” or my personal favorite, the “Traffic Light.”
  • Somehow there is some way for a team to just keep throwing balls without it ever being your turn.
  • Sexual innuendos are the only allowed means of communication between any players or spectators during play.
  • Teammates also tend not to like it when you make them purposefully miss by knocking their arm on the toss to prove to them they can’t really be playing any worse.
  • Did I mention the rules can change at anytime somehow?
  • Mt. Dew can give you just as much buzz as beer provided you’re drinking it like it’s going out of style.
Oh well. It was still fun…somehow. Although it was either that or watch Celebrity Eye Candy ’06 on VH1. I was told about another fun game called Flip Cup which has an even funner version called Ultimate Flip Cup, but I’m not sure I’ll even be able to comprehend those rules. Honestly how hard is it just to drink really fast if you plan on getting wasted?
