Odds are if you are reading this blog, you enjoy drinking games whether its beer pong, tip cup, beer chess, or something more specific. There are many games that are helped by the addition of drinking rules, and it is so easy to write your own drinking game for any topic of your choosing, that it can begin to seem like all games are potential drinking games. Be warned however, not all games should be combined with alcohol. To save you from learning this the hard way, please avoid the following games while drinking.
1. (Sport) Ice Hockey: This game is an excellent predecessor to drinking, but the game should be completed prior to engaging in the consumption of alcohol. Let’s face it, skating with sticks using sharpened blades on your feet is not safe when sober. Please do not try it combined with alcohol.
2. (Video Game) Grand Theft Auto IV: The camera cuts, swerving and high speed motion are a key component in the following equation:Beer + G.T.A.IV= Motion Sickness
3. (Sport) Polo: Polo is an excellent drinking sport, for the spectators. While you enjoy your field side beverages, please remember not to jump into the fray. Neither water nor horses and mallets should be combined with beverages that reduce aim.
4. (Group Game) Red Rover: “Red Rover, Red Rover, send Bud right over?” Not so much. The only thing that seems like fun when playing this game and drinking is crashing into the other players. It’s a recipe for injury at best, and angry drunken brawls at worst. Not a good idea, especially if you ever want to engage in drinking games with those friends again.
5. (Board Game) The Game of Life: This game is boring. Beer is a depressant. Combine the two and you will likely fall asleep. And then you cannot drink or play anymore until you wake up. And that is counterproductive.
This list is not comprehensive, but hopefully it provides you with a sampling that can help determine when a game just isn’t fit for adaptation to drinking. And if you have a way to make one of these games work, spread the word!
So you’ve given it some thought and you’ve decided to take the plunge. Congratulations! You’re getting a beer pong table! But before you pick out your little bundle of joy (we’re still referring to the table, of course), keep in mind that different tables suit different types of people. Below our the three main kinds of beer pong table we sell, and who they’re going to be good for:
This sleek and classy table is designed for the Ponger of Mystery. Think dark sunglasses, handsome suits, and awesome Bond-like contraptions like, um, iPads. The aluminum table is the lightest and most easily transportable of all the tables, and it folds into a briefcase so you can take it with you on your jet-setting, crime-fighting tours.
This indestructible bad boy is designed to handle any spill, scuff, or party pratfall. Did one of your teammates take a stumble and crash head-first into the table? We can’t make any guarantees for your teammate, but the table, for one, can handle it. The plastic tables come in a wide array of colors and also lend themselves very nicely to custom graphics, so you can show off your spirit no matter what you’re celebrating. They can also come with pre-drilled holes for game cups, to keep your beer from spilling.
The smooth, classic wood table is the perfect compliment to any bar, pub, game room, or basement. It comes with two leg types—standard or detailed—so you can match it to the décor. It blends right in with comfy couches, bright dart boards, or fancy dogs playing poker.
Don’t forget, the above are only guidelines. Fit your table to your personality even better by adding bumpin’ speakers and custom graphics!

Are you one of those people who thinks a party is the perfect excuse to let it all hang out? Think again. Contrary to popular belief, the morning after a party most people do remember what went on the night before. Luckily, we at Party Pong tables are here to remind you how to avoid the most embarrassing party pratfalls. So sit back, peruse this article, and make sure you don’t become the next campus legend for all the wrong reasons.
1. Being a sore loser
So you and your friends have broken out your favorite beer pong tables for a quick game. Things aren’t looking so great for your team, and you end up getting clobbered by the opponents. Do you:
a) Smile charismatically and make a joke about how you’re still the top player where it counts (in the bedroom)? Or do you:
b) Throw your beer pong balls across the room and run out sobbing about how the game was rigged?
Please, for the love of all that is holy, choose the first option. Losing a game can hurt your pride, sure, but if you smile and make jokes, there are still plenty of ways to come out on top.
2. Shamelessly pursuing a guy/girl who isn’t interested in you
We admire your optimism and your persistence. But if you get a couple of rejections in a row from the same person, move on. There are plenty of fish in the sea—but the uninterested fish you pursue relentlessly will hurt your chances.
3. Drinking way too much
This brings us back to our original point: just because you forget a party doesn’t mean other people won’t. Getting tipsy enough to keep things boisterous and entertaining? Good. Getting so hammered that you’re falling down and slurring your words? Embarrassing!
4. Starting a fight
Just don’t. Seriously.
5. Publicly hooking up
Okay, so you found a hottie who’s interested in you! Do everyone a favor and take them to a private place—and no, by “private place,” we do not mean the party host’s bed. Hooking up is fun and will earn you some mad props—but not if you’re hooking up in front of everybody.
So soldier on and stay classy, Party Pongers!

If you were at the Playboy Party Pong Beer Pong Tournament and Party on July 30th at Cabo Cantina in Los Angeles, you would have seen for yourself how smoking hot Playboy Playmate Alison Waite really is. Not only is she hot, but she happens to be extremely friendly, outgoing and fun! After posing with the teams for a quick photograph on the red carpet, Ali couldn’t wait to cheer on the teams competing for their chance to win 2 tickets to a party at the Playboy Mansion. If you regret not attending this beer pong tournament and party, you have one week to sign up for the Manhattan Beach tournament at Sharkeez on 8/27.
Beer pong tables and naked Playboy girls are two beautiful things and when you put them together you have one epic party. Which is exactly what it was at the Playboy Beach House party filmed in Malibu, CA and expected to air on the Playboy channel within the next month or two. Of course Party Pong was invited and of course, a few members of the staff “HAD” to go. The Playboy Beer Pong Table made several appearances over the weekend which included some heated matches by a few well-known celebrities. No pictures were allowed, but we were able to get our hands on these photos just to prove we were there.
