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!

Awesome Things To Do When the Power Goes Out

The recent heat waves in California caused a 3 hour power outage last week and got us thinking…what do we do to entertain ourselves if the power goes out??

You can always play beer pong on a Party Pong Table with new Glow Lights.  DON’T play pong or any other game involving moving objects by candlelight—the reasons for that should be pretty obvious. But as long as you’ve got a crowd and all the necessary equipment, go for it! It will make a great story to share with your friends who were less well-prepared and spent powerless hours draining their smartphone batteries by obsessively checking the department of water and power’s website. Take photos and earn bragging rights when you finally have Facebook again.

If you’re not fortunate enough to have your Party Pong table nearby when the lights go out, or you lack non-flammable light sources, never fear. There are plenty of games you can play with no light—the best ones are throwbacks to being thirteen at summer camp. Truth or Dare?  Truths get racier the more drunk you get, and dares get more ridiculous. Go to a professor’s office hours in your boxers! Ask someone out while standing on your head! Dares can also wait until the power comes back on to execute, which gives you plenty of anticipation points to help you pass the evening. Variations can also include tales of your exploits from ages past—swap stories about the crazy things you did when you actually were thirteen at summer camp, and take a drink every time someone says “camping,” “hot counselor,” “saddle sores,” or “poison ivy.”

If none of those work for you, there’s always the tried-and-true pastime of singing drinking songs. Think beyond “99 Bottles of Beer”—you can turn “Old Mac Donald” into a dirty drinking song if you’re sufficiently creative about it. And the drunker you get, the more inventive your lyrics will be. If you’re not too drunk to hold a pencil, write your songs down for posterity, and do a dramatic reading of them next time you’re sober.

Obviously, this list is not exhaustive.  Comment and let us know what you would do if the power goes out!

Hash House Harriers: The Other Beer Sport

On-on!

Athletic drinking: perhaps you thought you were alone, beer pong fans, but hark! a “drinking group with a running problem”. What?!? Sounds too good to be true. But across the globe the Hash House Harriers, or H3, are out in full force. They’re like fraternities/sororities of silliness and fitness for adults of all kinds. The Constitution, dating back to 1950, states the group is meant to, “promote physical fitness among our members, to get rid of weekend hangovers, to acquire a good thirst and to satisfy it in beer.” And the Nobel goes to…

The ratio of exercise to drinking varies from chapter to chapter; most chapters have both runners and walkers.The level of social acceptability also varies; some are family friendly while others go out of their way to be as lewd or politically incorrect as possible.

Seems like this could get out of hand really fast but there’s a method to the madness. Each chapter has their own traditions but generally once a week one member, or hare, sets a trail with chalk or flour with different signs or markings signifying a false trail, a backtrack, a shortcut, or a turn. In addition to the tricks, several types of “checks” are also used- most commonly a beer check- to keep the hound–the other members–together by slowing down front runners and giving everyone a chance to regroup and socialize. Among the popular jargon between hashers the most common phrase- and perhaps most important- is “On-on!” shouted to let other members of the hound know they are still on the trail.

Want to join a hash? Look up your local group! Don’t be intimidated: all the local traditions and markings will be explained to you at the “chalk talk” before the hash. But do beware of the “down-down” used for both positive and negative recognition of a hasher requiring the member in question to finish the entire remaining contents of his/her beverage without interruption or else it will be poured on your head. But you beer pong lovers can handle that, right? So go work off that beer gut with the Hash House Harriers and invite your hound back to your place for some beer pong afterwards.

Sexy Party Games

Not quite the Twister you remember

Sure, sometimes it’s great to party with just your friends. Who wouldn’t want to spend a night of unfiltered trash-talking and divulging embarrassing details? Nonetheless, if you’re throwing a party and you’re expecting to encounter some sexy members of the opposite gender, we suggest breaking out a few party games of the adult variety. Here are four games that will be sure to bring you closer to the object of your desire in some way, shape, or form:

1. Underwear Musical Chairs

This game is similar to regular musical chairs, with one important variation: half of your party guests will already be sitting in the chairs, in a circle. When the music starts, the remaining half will walk in a circle; and when the music stops, the people walking will sit down in the lap closest to them. From here, anything goes.

2. Body Oil Twister

Did you know that Twister is more fun–and slightly more dangerous–if you grease up the mat first? The oil will not only add an extra degree of challenge to the game; it will also increase the likelihood that someone sexy will fall on top of you. We suggest challenging your chosen one to a one-on-one match.

3. Shaving Cream Slip ‘n’ Slide

You didn’t hear it from us, but if you use shaving cream you can break out a slip ‘n’ slide right in your hallway, without making (too much of) a mess. The water-free version is still slippery, but much easier to use indoors. And here’s the best part: to maintain the best traction, the girls will still want to be in bikinis.

4. Strip Beer Pong

Come on, did we really think we’d let this go without a mention? Strip beer pong is the ultimate in sexy party games; every time someone misses a shot, they’ll have to remove an article of clothing. You may just end up winning twice.

And hey, if all else fails, you can always find a sexy Playboy beer pong table to keep you entertained!
