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!

Beer Pong Tips, Tricks & Strategies

The brilliant thing about beer pong is that there’s no one way to play it. There are all kinds of regional variations around the US, and pretty much every new group of beer pong players comes up with their own set of “house rules.”  We say, celebrate the diversity in the world of Pong! That said, no matter what set of rules you’re playing with, there are a few tips and tricks that can help your game no matter what. In no particular order, here are the things that can improve your technique and help you have a better game.

1. Maintain the optimal level of Intoxication

Everything in life is a bell curve, and the effect of beer on your pong game is no different. For a while, each sip of beer will grant you phenomenal cosmic powers…and then, suddenly, the effect will be completely reversed and your beer pong game will crash. To stay in your happy place at the top of the bell curve, drink strategically! Alternate your cups of beer with cups of water so you can stay buzzed and confident for as long as possible—and avoid the sorry state of affairs where you’re falling over or seeing double and can’t actually throw the ball.

2. Grip your balls well

Your beer pong balls! What did you think we were talking about!?!?!?

Believe it or not, the way you hold your balls does matter. The basic overhand grip is probably the most popular, but you can test out several others if that one isn’t working for you. Try out an underhand grip, or even a “peace grip,” where you hold the ball between your index and middle fingers, like you’re making a peace sign. Feel free to experiment!

3. Get your physics on

Beer pong is really about physics, which means that you should have paid a lot more attention in your high school science and math classes in order to improve your game. Success in beer pong is all about the arc! If the curve on your ball is a good parabola (shaped like our old friend, the bell curve), it’s less likely to bounce back out of the cup. A good arc will also give you more control in your aim. Experiment with your toss to get the perfect curvature so that your balls really go where you’re trying to send them!

4. Cross train

We’ve all heard of cross training for other sports, but few people consider that it’s important for beer pong as well. Play a game of basketball to practice your arc and get a larger ball through a hoop. Play some darts at the bar to increase your hand-eye coordination and your aim.

5. Practice, practice, practice

It’s how you get to Carnegie Hall, and it’s how you achieve the status of beer pong god. (Yes, those two things are completely equivalent). Nobody has to know you practice your beer pong throws by lobbing ping pong balls into cups of water in your kitchen when nobody else is around. It’ll be our little secret. If anyone asks, you’re just naturally blessed by the beer pong gods with a great grip, great aim, and a great arc. Just grin and let the accolades roll in!

Do you have a favorite tip or trick for upping your game? Can you regale us with tales of your epic practice sessions or your favorite grip or your personal secret to getting the best arc? Let us know in the comments!

Sharkeez Beer Pong Tournament a Huge Success

Party Pong and Playboy just wrapped up the third and wildly successful Playboy Party Pong Tournament and Party this past Saturday at Sharkeez in Upper Manhattan Beach, California. Playmate, Heather Rae Young posed with teams on the red carpet, making for a dramatic, fun entrance from the start of the beer pong tournament. As team made their way to the beer pong tables in what was an epic first round series, the tournament atmosphere was filled with excitement and nervousness. All 32 teams competing for 2 free custom beer pong tables and 2 tickets to party at the Playboy Mansion, brought their A-games, for sure!  In the end, there was one team left standing and that team was Black & Mild.  Despite an 8 cup deficit in the semi finals, Team Black & Mild managed to battle their way back and advance to the finals where they proved to be the ultimate champions.  It may be cliche, but although the was only one winning team, everyone who attended Saturday’s Playboy Party Pong Beer Pong Tournament was a winner, as they enjoyed at least 2 refreshing beers, a chance to win their own Playboy Party Pong Beer Pong Table, the company of Heather Young, and exciting beer pong action.
