5 Ways to Improve your BP Game this Year

It’s New Year’s Resolution time again, and what better way to start the new year than by resolving to improve your performance at the one thing that matters: beer pong! Here are 5 tips to improve your game and get better at beer pong in the new year–some of them might even help you develop other skills as well!

 

  1. Practice, Practice, Practice

The same thing that gets musicians to Carnegie Hall is the thing that will bring you to beer pong glory. You become better at everything through practice, and beer pong is no exception. Play at parties, play at bars, play plain old ping pong if you must, but the more time you spend hitting balls with paddles, the better a player you’ll be.

 

  1. Play Video Games

Yeah, you heard us right. Playing video games is actually good for you, no matter what your parents say. Video games have been shown to improve hand/eye coordination, which is a crucial skill in perfecting your beer pong shot and in making the epic saves that will win you the game. So if you really want to win at beer pong, get out your PlayStation and practice!

 

  1. Determine Your Technique

There are dozens of ways to hold and throw a ball, with detailed YouTube tutorials on every possible variation on beer pong technique. Try out all of them (bonus points if you practice with one of our customized beer pong balls), and you’ll figure out there’s probably one way in particular that works best for you. Practice that and make it your signature technique, and your muscle memory will carry you through game after game victorious.

 

  1. Pay Attention to Your Feet

That thing we said about trying out every possible technique for holding and throwing a ball? It applies to your stance as well. Contrary to popular belief, beer pong doesn’t just happen with your upper body–the way you stand, the bend in your knees, which foot is forward…these things all matter. So practice your stances, and find the one that works best for you and that supports your signature throw.

 

  1. Get Buzzed

When you’re playing beer pong at a party, there’s a certain level of intoxication inherent in the practice. If you practice your beer pong technique with a beer on board, you’ll develop your muscle memory with the same level of intoxication that you’re likely to have when you’re playing for real. So if you’re trying to figure out how to win at beer pong, one part of the answer is to practice with beer!

This is just a short list of beer pong tips that can help you win more games in the new year. If you need more tips, check out the Three Activities That Will Improve Your Beer Pong Skills.  Do you have other tips to recommend? Let us know in the comments!

But, it’s at the beer pong table where things really get interesting.

Sometimes, you level up.  And then you level up higher.

Wait, there’s no beer pong table at your spring break destination? We can work with that!

At the swimming pool rather than the beach? You can totally take your game underwater.

Play it in traffic.

Play it after a snowstorm.

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.

Scrabble Drinking Game

So, you’re crushing on that cute girl in the Comp Lit department, and beer pong just isn’t her thing. But hey, there’s got to be a way right? She likes words, you like beer… Drunken Scrabble. What better way to introduce to her the joys of drinking games? It’s almost a match made in heaven.

Rules of the Scrabble Drinking Game:

Take one Scrabble board, with all the various and sundry pieces associated with it (bags of letters,etc).  Get together the girl of your dreams and a few more friends (best bet is to have 8 people total, and you can play in 4 teams of 2). Bring a case of beer (ask beforehand what she likes, extra romantic points dude).

As you start to play, take a drink each time someone plays a word worth more than 10 points. If you’re playing with people who are at all intelligent, this should be nearly every turn. Take 2 sips anytime anyone scores higher than 20 points, 3 whenever someone gets more than 30, and so on.

Partway through the game, make the suggestion that creativity counts in terms of both spelling and what constitutes a “real word.” Shakespeare made up words, didn’t he? So can you! If you can come up with a plausible-sounding definition, it counts! By the end of the game, the board should be full of ridiculous nonsense words and everyone should be ridiculously tipsy and giggling.

Take a picture of the board when you finish, and share it when you’re all sober the next day. See if you can remember what all your made-up words meant. With any luck, your lady love will have had a great time, remember most if not all of the crazy made-up definitions, and be eager to have a drunken scrabble match again. Voila—second date!

The Oscars Drinking Game

Whether its the Oscars, the Emmys, or Golden Globes, you know you’re going to watch the awards shows. Now whether you have any real interest in the celebrities or not, the one thing you do know is that you might as well drink while you’re doing it. Here’s a new drinking game, applicable to any awards show you may be watching.

  1. Anytime anyone says the name of the award show, take a drink.
  2. Anytime the host’s attempts at humor fall flat, take a drink.
  3. Anytime anyone uses the words “excitement” or “anticipation” to describe the atmosphere, take a drink.
  4. Anytime there’s a big, dramatic pause between “and the award goes to…” and an actual name, take a drink.
  5. Anytime the camera pans to the candidates for an award and at least one of them isn’t wearing a big, fake smile, take a drink.
  6. Anytime the winner doesn’t immediately register that their name was just read and they should get the hell onstage, take a drink.
  7. Anytime a winner starts to cry during their acceptance speech, take a drink.
  8. Anytime a winner thanks their family, take a drink for every family member they mention by name.
  9. Anytime a winner thanks God, take 2 drinks—one for you, and one for Jeebus!
  10. Anytime a winner talks over the allotted time, chug from whenever the host tries to shut them up until they actually stop talking.

This set of rules should get you pretty sloshed, pretty quickly, no matter which awards show you’re watching. If you have ideas for rules of your own to add to this list, either for awards shows in general or for a specific one, post them in the comments below!

Key Steps to Snow Beer Pong Tables

It’s freaking freezing outside, and the snow is up past your knees. The sensible thing to do would be to stay inside and get drunk normally. I mean sure, you could even have some classic drunk karaoke. But for an intrepid bro like yourself who recognizes the voice of opportunity, there’s only one thing to do: play snow pong!

What is snow pong? We’re so glad you asked! Snow pong is the combination of your most epic beer pong battle in history combined with all your childhood fantasies of building epic snow forts. The steps are simple:

  1. Call your bros and tell them about the impending epicness. Get them all together and go outside.
  2. Build yourself a beer pong table/beer cooler out of snow (this is where the epic snow fort fantasy happens—bonus points if you have a major snowball fight while you’re building the table). Make it the same height and dimensions as a regular beer pong table, but hollow out places in the sides to hold your beer cans, so that they’ll be naturally nice and chilly for the game.
  3. Play pong! You can use the normal rules, or make up extra rules to reflect the fact that you’re outside in the snow. Add a chunk of snow to each cup, make the loser create a drunk snow angel…whatever your drunk creativity wants to do.
  4. Repeat until you’re all too frozen to continue. Go inside, get warm, and then go do it all over again!
  5. Send us photos and tell us in the comments about your variations on the game. The more ridiculous the shenanigans, the better!

These simple steps are the essential keys to your winterfest bronanza!

New Year’s Eve Drinking Games

New Year’s Eve 2014 is right around the corner, and so we must queue the nostalgia. We have all been around to witness such global extraordinary events such as the Outkast reunion, Frozen dominating the billboard for 20 weeks straight, and the resurrection of Michael Jackson himself! Or at least his old archived and unreleased music. New Year’s Eve is a special time of year mixed with romance, hope, and new year’s resolutions. But everyone knows that you can’t simply enter into the new year, you’ve gotta ring in the new year with the most craziest, biggest, and alcoholic party imaginable. To that end, here are a few New Year’s Eve drinking games to help get your party going strong.

1. Cheap Champagne Pong.

When in doubt, adapt a classic. Play it the same as beer pong, but use the cheapest champagne you can find instead of beer. It’s the party game you love the most, done New Year’s Eve style! While your at it, impress your bros and girlfriends with the most sickest neon glowing beer pong table to match the New Year’s eve decor.

2. Don’t Say It!

For this game, have a list of words that people can’t say. Make them words appropriate to the occasion that are quite likely to come up in conversation, like “party,” “new year,” “resolution,” etc.  Anytime someone says one of the forbidden words, they have to take a drink. This won’t necessarily result in people not saying the forbidden words, but it definitely will result in everyone drinking a little more and a little faster. Which is basically the point.

3. Ball Drop Drinking Game

As midnight approaches, it’s inevitable that people will start to cluster around the TV to watch the ball drop in Times Square. To liven up the experience, take a drink every time one of these things happens on TV.

The news anchor utters any of these phrases:

  1. “live from Times Square”
  2. “In [x] minutes, the ball will start to drop
  3. “people have been camped out here since [whenever]”
  4. “Performing later tonight will be [x]”

The screen shows any of these shots:

  1. The ball at any point before the countdown
  2. A pan of faces of people waiting for midnight
  3. The empty stage where they keep telling you interesting things will happen

Even if you don’t turn the TV on until ten minutes before midnight actually strikes, there will still be plenty of opportunities to drink!

With this set of games  prepped, you’ll be able to throw the best party in the history of 2014 and set 2015 off to a really great start.

Holiday Drinking Games

You’re going home for the holidays, which means lots of ugly sweater parties and awkward questions about your activities at school. To help you prepare for this inevitable slump in your social life, we’ve brought you five holiday drinking games to jingle your bells before you head home.

Holiday Drinking Game #1 – Christmas Carol Conundrums

Do you know all the words to “jingle bell rock?” Are you sure? Get a group of your friends together and distribute shot glasses. Have whatever liquor you like on hand. Someone in the group should start out by singing the first line of a Christmas carol or other holiday song. Go around in the circle, with each person singing the next line, until someone screws up. That person then has to take a shot and start the next song.

Holiday Drinking Game #2 – Twelve Days of Christmas

Warning: this drinking game is not for lightweights. Winning could quite probably involve alcohol poisoning. You’ve been warned. You’ll need a different kind of liquor for each of the 12 days of Christmas, preferably festive or creative varieties depending on what your budget will allow. Then you all start singing: “on the first day of Christmas…” and take a shot of the first beverage. On the second day, “two turtle doves” gets the a shot of the second kind of liquor, and the “partridge in a pear tree” gets you another shot of the first. And so on. The last person standing is the winner.

Holiday Drinking Game #3 –  Holiday Musical Chairs

The usual setup for musical chairs, but play the most obnoxious holiday music you can find. With each round, whoever is eliminated has to take a shot. As a variation, have half the group sitting on the chairs the whole time. When the music stops, whoever is walking around has to sit on someone’s lap. Depending who sits on which person’s lap, this could be naughty or nice!

Holiday Drinking Game #4 – Vodka Roulette

Prepare a shot glass for everyone in the room. All but one will contain water, the last one contains vodka. Everyone takes their shot at the same time, and whoever gets the vodka is out. They then get to prepare the next round. You can do all the rounds at once, or you can intersperse them randomly throughout the night to add that element of surprise.

Holiday Drinking Game #5 – Holiday Buzzwords

Everyone gets assigned a word at random: “Christmas,” “ho ho ho,” “snow,” “reindeer,” etc. Anytime during the party when someone hears their word they have to take a shot. This is also a great game to play surreptitiously on your own while at your family’s ugly sweater party. Make sure your punch is spiked, and take a sip anytime a family member says something awkward.

This set of games is sure to keep your holiday parties well-lubricated and full of holiday cheer.
