Haha @ pic #3! I just had a conversation this very day with a guy at my local liquor store (by “local” I mean it’s in the same strip mall as my store) about how he beat his grandpa at beer pong, but his grandfather is refusing to admit defeat.
This is a far cry from my grandfather who lives in a dry county in TX and, due not only to his location but also his medication, has to drink near beer. And he’s Irish, to boot!
Nicoretta – Usually, for each ball you manage to toss into one of your opponent’s cups, they have to drink the beer in that cup. You win the game when you manage to get a ball in each of their cups before they have done the same to you. Generally each side (and people play doubles sometimes too) has six or ten cups arranged in a pyramid formation (depends on how long you want the game to last I guess).
I think it is hilarious that there are grandparents out there who play it.
#1: Shameful. Just shameful. I really hope that’s P-shopped.
There are a few variations to the beer pong rules such as clutch, gang bangs, bounce shots being worth two drinks (because you can knock them away), etc. It’s my favourite drinking game. A buddy has the official BPL sized table and everything.
eusadnama – I understand the notion of certain cultures (AND individuals) requesting that their funeral be a happy event celebrating their life, but I don’t see how more than a small handful of people, twisted or not, would be flattered at the idea of one of their relatives posing for a photo by their casket with a shit-eating grin and a thumbs-up.
nuff – Yeah, elaborate on the ‘gang bang’ rule please, LOL.
#3 looks absolutely THRILLED to be playing pong with his grandma. it’s strange to see it played during the day in gram’s dining room with clear cups.
a friend of mine has the chilled cup formation so there’s never warm beer…it’s kinda amazing
A gang bang is when you sink two balls in the same cup before your opponent takes it off the table and drinks it. If you do, they lose the game and have to chug the remainder of their cups. Also, if they throw and hit your hand when you are trying to take the cup out of play, it counts as interference and they drink a cup automatically. Also, if a ball is swirling in a cup, you can blow it out before it touches the beer and you don’t have to drink.
One of my favourite beer pong games involved a makeshift floating table in a pool and playing on a hot summer day. So awesome.
I’m Hayley, and the post up there is mine, lmfao! How did you even find it to put it on here?… Anyway, just for the record that was sarcasm, the convosation wasn’t lovely at all! It was quite scary really. :/
