10 Beer Pong Team Names with Movie References

You and your bros are putting together a beer pong team, and you want to make sure that your team name doesn’t suck. There are plenty of good beer pong team names out there that have already been taken, and you probably wish you’d thought of them first. But all you really need for a good team name is a pop culture reference and a slightly twisted sense of humor. Here are some suggestions from the Party Pong team for the best beer pong team names with movie references.

1. Were you one of millions of bros forced to suffer through Twilight? Commemorate your experience with a name like Team Edward and/or Team Jacob…or maybe Team Edward, Jacob, and Bella in a Threesome. Better yet, Team Vampires Don’t F*ing Sparkle.
2. Animal House Party. Van Wildest. Riff on some of the greatest frat movies of all time.
3. Road Trip. Euro Trip. So many movies to choose from about being young, horny, and On the Road.
4. The First Rule Of Beer Pong Is Not To Talk About Beer Pong!
5. Do you have major pride in the US of A? We’ve got lots of movies about “Murrica—make the most of referencing them! American Beauty. American Psycho. American Pie. You get the idea.
6. Get your superhero on, and tell the world what kind of man you are. Batman, Superman, Iron Man, Beer Pong Man…maybe even Florida Man (but seriously, we hope not).
7. Are you geek? Are you proud? Lord of the Pong. The Drunken Orcs. If you’re into LotR, fly your geek flag like Smaug breathing fire.
8. Sad that vigilante isn’t a valid career choice? Name your team for John Wayne, the Boondock Saints, or any Western hero ever.
9. Miss your childhood? Riff on every animated movie ever, from Land Before Time to The Lion King to Cars.
10. Legally Blonde. Your girlfriend likes this movie. You’ll get girlfriend points.

How to Prep for Oktoberfest

Oktoberfest…that yearly ritual when we all want to be in Germany and curse the fact that we can’t afford plane tickets. Fortunately, there are plenty of great ways to celebrate Oktoberfest here in the US. Number one way to celebrate? Beer pong!

Obviously, you should start out with an awesome beer pong table. You could keep it simple with a cheap beer pong table without graphics, but you could also get into the spirit of things with our Medieval table, or keep it classic with the Original wood grain. Or think about the possibilities inherent in a custom beer pong table…German beer wench design, anyone?

Second, you’ll want to get some awesome Oktoberfest beer. Whether you play beer pong with it or just have it around to drink before or after is up to you, but there are tons of awesome German and German-style beers around for this season, and the prices can range from super cheap to holy crap expensive. Buy whatever you want, but remember to shout “Prost!” and clink red solo cups with your bros every time you take a swig. It’s the German way!

Finally, get some sausage, cheese, pickles, and pretzels for you and your bros to nosh on between games. German food is basically perfect party food! Between taking swigs of beer, playing pong on a beer pong table emblazoned with a buxom beer wench, and eating gigantic bratwurst, you’ll be as close to Oktoberfest as you can possibly get without flying to Munich.

One final word? No matter how much you want to pretend that you’re in Germany…don’t wear lederhosen. Just don’t.

How to Host an Epic Beer Pong Halloween Party

Halloween is here, and it’s officially party time—time to set up your game on a cool beer pong table, drink something pumpkin-flavored, and dress up like your worst nightmare or your wildest dream.  This year, though, you want your party to be different—something that will impress your big crush and your best bros and make you the undisputed king of Halloween. Never fear, bro. Party Pong is here to help you set up the most epic party around.

1.       Make your beer pong game glow

No party is complete without beer pong, and a Halloween party is the perfect place for your favorite game. But instead of playing on that ancient folding table in your basement, kick it up a notch with one of Party Pong’s light up beer pong tables and a set of custom balls. They’ll make your game look spooky in all the best ways, and with some extra black lights around you’ll have the perfect eerie atmosphere for an epic party.

2.       Find the best Halloween-themed beer

Before you start your beer pong game, take a few minutes to sample some of the awesome Halloween-themed beers out there. They range from the predictable (pumpkin everything) to the frankly terrifying (Black Death beer made with super hot Naga chillies, anyone?), and they make a great precursor to your glowing beer pong game. Have everyone who comes to your party bring a bottle or 6-pack as tribute, and vote on which Halloween beers are the most ghastly delicious (and which ones are just ghastly).

3.       Make your snacks ridiculously Halloween-y

Chips and salsa is a major cop-out if you want to host a memorable party. And Halloween is the perfect opportunity to break out the most ridiculous spooky foods that you used to love as a kid. Cookies that look like fingers. Candies that look like eyeballs. Jello molded into a brain. Gummy worms in graveyard dirt. Food is one of the most fun, campy ways to make your Halloween party memorable—and if you can make awesome food happen as well as awesome beer, that’s a major party-hosting achievement unlocked.

4.       Make your decorations as awesomely creepy as possible

Don’t just make a half-assed jack-o-lantern and spread some fake cobwebs around alongside cheap decorations from the drugstore. To have a Halloween party that people will remember, you need to make it look good.  Choose one Halloween-y idea (skulls, bats, pumpkins, glowing eyeballs, your favorite creepy movie, whatever), and make everything you use to decorate your space with fit into that theme. Whether you’re making everything about grinning skeletons or Tales From the Crypt, having a theme makes your whole setup look more polished (and you can probably find a custom beer pong table to match your theme). You are trying to impress your bros and your crush, right?

5.       Have Prizes

Want to make someone’s evening? Give them the chance to win something. Have a prize for the best costume, the best beer pong play, or the best/weirdest Halloween beer offering. Make the prizes awesome (a bottle of the best/scariest Halloween beer, a set of customized beer pong balls, a metric ton of Halloween candy, a life-size skeleton, whatever). Having great prizes means that people (like your crush) will remember your epic party for ages.

Funny Beer Quotes from Famous People

You may or may not think of yourself as an intellectual, but you definitely think of yourself as someone who drinks beer. Lucky for you, there are plenty of famous people who ARE intellectuals who ALSO drank beer and said awesome, inspired things about it. Next time you need to sound smart at a party (maybe to impress that hot brainy girl), bring up some of funny beer quotes about beer from famous people about your favorite subject—beer!

Beer Quote #1:

“Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.” ― Benjamin Franklin.

One of the finest minds in American history tells us that beer is a God-given gift? Who are we to argue?

 

Beer Quote #2

“I am a firm believer in the people. If given the truth, they can be depended upon to meet any national crisis. The great point is to bring them the real facts, and beer.” ― Abraham Lincoln

Wiser words about people and politics have never been spoken.  We all knew that Lincoln was a great president, but by talking about beer he’s proven himself to be truly wise.

 

Beer Quote #3

“For a quart of Ale is a meal for a King.”—William Shakespeare

See? Kings are awesome enough to drink all their meals, according to Shakespeare. The rest of us get to have our beers interspersed with pizza.

 

Beer Quote #4

Oscar Wilde got it right! And, you know, it’s important to show solidarity with the drinking classes by drinking with them!

Beer is intellectual, and so are you! Clearly it’s a match made in heaven. You should take all the idiots’ beer away from them and drink it yourself!

Beer Pong Movies

We all know that beer pong is awesome. So on the nights that we’re not playing, we should be watching movies about playing—it’s like getting extra motivation for the next round. Here are five beer pong movies to watch with a cold one.

Beer Pong Movie #1:

Road Trip: Beer Pong (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1319733/)

Three college roommates on a road trip across the country to compete in a National Beer Pong Championship. Did we mention they’re on a bus full of gorgeous, scantily clad models? Also don’t forget “Get Your Balls Wet,” in which the cast of Road Trip: Beer Pong tells everything they know about the sport (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1625550/)

Beer Pong Movie #2:

Last Cup: Road to the World Series of Beer Pong (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1078603/)

It’s a documentary. About Pong. Now you can truthfully tell that cute girl in English class that you watch documentaries for fun.

Beer Pong Movie #3:

Beer Pong Hero (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1899124/)

A dude who’s never had a drink in his life signs up for a beer pong tournament to impress a girl. Hilarity ensues.

Beer Pong Movie #4:

Beer Pong Saved My Life http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1426355/plotsummary

A pair of best friends, tired of their boring lives, join a nearby beer pong tournament. When it turns out that they’re some of the best players there, the praise goes to their heads and untold shenanigans begin.

Beer Pong Movie #5:

Beer Pong: Behind the Glory (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1419291/)

An investigative journalist discovers the world of competitive beer pong in this hilarious mockumentary. Like Last Cup, but a lot more fun.

 

Get your Netflix and Amazon subscriptions in order, or get yourself down to the closest going-out-of-business video chain, and next time you’re bored with a beer in your hand, watch one of these movies. Then go find someone to play pong with.  Possibly to compete with at the national level. For honor, glory, and beer!

Best Ways to Keep Beer Cold

Nothing is worse than warm beer. But not all beer cooling methods are created equal. Here’s a rundown of the options, so as the weather gets hot you can keep your beer cold and icy.

1. Styrofoam coolers

Pros: the ultimate in portable and disposable. Take it with you to the beach or to the mountains or wherever the hell your road trip will take you, abuse it thoroughly, and know at the end of the day that even if you destroy it, you’ll still have had cold beer and you’ll have only spent a few bucks on the container.

Cons: Styrofoam’s bad for the environment, dude. Get something that costs a couple bucks more that’s reusable.

2. Beer can sleeves

Pros: They keep your individual can of beer cold while you’re drinking it.

Cons: They only work for one can at a time. Also, they mostly look dumb.

3. Thermoses

Pros: Holds a couple of beer’s worth of booze, designed to go with you wherever you go.

Cons: Everyone needs to bring their own, because one thermos definitely won’t hold enough beer to share. Also, make sure you get one that looks like it actually belongs to an adult and not an elementary-schooler.

4. Kegerators

Pros: They hold an entire keg! And keep it cold! With science!

Cons: They’re not exactly portable. You can use it for a kickass house party, but you can’t take it on the road.

5. Freezable Beer Pong Coolers

Pros: It’s a rack to help you line up your cups perfectly! It keeps your beer cold while you play! It’s portable! It’s specifically designed for beer pong!

Cons: Is it possible to have cons for anything specifically designed to help your beer pong game go better? There is absolutely nothing wrong with this method of keeping beer cold!

Clearly there are plenty of options for keeping your beer chilly…but only one that will keep your beer cold WHILE YOU PLAY PONG. We have a winner!

Appropriate Beer Pong Clothing: Jerseys & Uniforms

We’ve previously posted about how shoes can impact the great sport of beer pong, and which shoes you should be wearing to score your big wins. But there is another aspect of beer pong’s sports culture that must be considered… Jerseys and Uniforms!

If you have an official league (or are starting one!) there are a few beer pong jersey elements that are pretty much standard, even though they’ve never been formally codified. They consist of…wait for it…pants or shorts of some variety…and a shirt or jersey of some variety. Shocking! Turns out that people who play beer pong, even for honor and glory in the official leagues, mostly want to be comfortable and be able to move, while still showing their team affiliation and their pride in the game. So while they might have matching jerseys in their favorite colors, or screenprinted mascots plastered on their t-shirts, beer pong clothes are really just that—clothes.

So what should you actually be thinking about when you’re planning on what to wear to the big game? Here are a few questions to ask yourself:

  1. Can you move in your clothing? If you can’t run around and maybe take a flying leap for that epic shot, rethink your ensemble.
  2. Is it super hot/ super cold out? Materials that wick moisture are fabulous during the warmer months. Fleecy clothes are better for the winter.
  3. Are you taking your game seriously as a sport? Or are you taking your game seriously as a freaking good time? Choose one or the other and dress to match.
  4. Are you sexy and you know it? Flaunt it! Wear something hot! Show some skin! (But not in the middle of winter. See above).
  5. Are you sexy and you don’t know it? Refer to #4.

Or, you know, wear whatever the hell you want.  Because it’s a party. And it’s beer pong. And as long as you’re playing the game and getting drunk, who cares about anything else?

How to host a massive beer pong party and not hate yourself the next day

 

Party Pong Beer Pong Party

Everyone loves a fantastic party full of beer pong! Everyone wants to go, get drunk, play pong, have a great time, and maybe get laid. Everyone dreams of hosting the biggest, most epic party imaginable.

Once.

And then, the next day, when your entire house smells like spilled beer, there are empty cups and beer cans everywhere, you can’t tell what color the floor is,  there are three strange people asleep in your bed, and you and all your bros are nursing hangovers…you’re going to hate yourself and everyone who came to the party, because while everyone else gets to stay in bed with their hangovers, you’re the ass who has to clean up.

Relax, bro. It’s not so bad. Here are the best ways to host an epic party at your house and not hate yourself the next day.

  1. Get a beer pong table that will set you up for success

The days or regular folding tables are over, bro. You will increase your epic-ness and reduce your cleanup woes if you use a dedicated beer pong table with pre-drilled holes to hold your cups. You gain bro points because dude, you actually have your own beer pong table. You gain morning-after points because you’ll have a hell of a lot less beer on the floor. If you really want to up the ante, get a custom table with a playmate emblazoned on the surface, and then get your bros to wipe off the table between games. After all, you can’t be disrespecting that playmate’s luscious boobs!

  1. Keep it outdoors

Do you have any outdoor space at all? Is the weather even slightly above freezing? Keep your party outdoors as much as possible. You’ll have more space to put people if you have indoor and outdoor action going on, and you’ll have less mess and spilled beer inside the house to deal with the next day. Plus, having most of the party taking place outside reduces the chances that you’ll find random strangers making out in your bed at the end of the night.

  1. Set up obvious places for your empty beer cans to go

It’s not rocket science, bro. Put out big trash bags in obvious places, and people will figure out that the empty cups and cans go there. People will barely notice during the party—sticking trash in trash bags is kind of automatic—but you’ll notice the next day, when you won’t have nearly as many random plastic cups all over your place.

  1. Pitchers of water

Yeah, we all know that half the point of a party is to get wasted, but make sure there’s water and other non-boozy stuff for people to drink. Hydration is good, and people are a lot more likely to remember to drink water if it’s out there and obvious. Believe us, everyone will be happier, both during the party and after, if there isn’t vomit in the sink.

  1. Stock up on your cleaning stuff ahead of time

You know that massive beer and supply run that you make before you host a party? When you get booze, chips and salsa, red solo cups, and whatever else you and your bros want for the big night? Add cleaning supplies to that supply run, and you’ll be a significantly happier person the next day. Think paper towels, extra trash bags, Swiffer stuff, Clorox wipes, a metric ton of febreeze…you get the picture. You might feel like a loser when you’re shopping, but believe us, your hangover will thank you the next day.

So. Now you know the secret to not hating yourself the morning after throwing an enormous party. What the hell are you waiting for bro? Next party’s at your place!
