“Beer Ball” vs. “Beer Pong”

This fast-paced game shares similarities to the classic favorite, “Beer Pong”. However, “Beer Ball” adds some twists and turns, making it unique and even more fun!

Both involve alcohol and a ping pong ball, but here’s how “Beer Ball” stands out. Instead of shooting into empty cups, players aim to hit their opponents’ beer cans. Sounds easy, right? Think again!

When you hit a beer can, you must finish drinking your own beer as much as you can before the opposing team retrieves the ball. This rule adds an element of strategy and suspense to the game!

How to play “Beer Ball”

“Beer Ball” is a simple and straightforward game anyone can enjoy! To get started, you will need:

  • At least two teams with at least two players each
  • A flat surface, such as a table or counter
  • Two beers per player
  • A ping pong ball

Now follow these steps to get the ball rolling:

1. Divide into two teams

Make sure each team has the same number of players, and decide who goes first with a quick round of rock-paper-scissors. Both teams stand on opposite sides of the table.

2. Set up the beers

Each player places two unopened beers on their side of the table, about an arm’s length away from each other. The beers should be standing upright and next to each other, not stacked.

3. Start the game!

The team who won the rock-paper-scissors round starts the game by having their first player in front of the table toss the ball toward their opponents’ beers.

4. Aim for the cans

The goal in “Beer Ball” is to hit your opponent’s beer can with the ping pong ball. If you miss, your turn passes, and the other team gets a chance to throw. If you hit one of their cans, it’s time for them to drink!

5. Drink up!

As soon as the ball hits an opponent’s beer can, quickly open one of the beers in front of you and start drinking as much as you can before the other team retrieves the ball! The other team has to get the ball back and slam it on to stop you.

If you finish your beer before they can do this, congratulations! You just scored a point for your team. If not, put the can back and let the next team go.

6. Keep going!

The “Beer Ball” game continues with both teams taking turns throwing and drinking until all beers are empty. The first team to finish their drinks wins! If you want to add some extra excitement, keep score and play multiple rounds.

“Beer Ball” Rules

Want to make sure your “Beer Ball” game runs smoothly? Keep these tips and rules in mind:

1. Use cold beers

This game is all about speed, so make sure your beers are cold and ready to drink. Warm beer can slow down the pace and be less enjoyable for everyone involved.

2. No hand touching

Players cannot touch their opponents’ cans or the ball at any point during the “Beer Ball” game. If you do, it’s considered cheating, and your team will lose a point.

3. No creeping closer!

We know you might get a bit eager, but players must stay behind their designated line at all points during the game. No sneaky creeping closer to get an easy hit; we’re watching you! 😉

5. The resurrection round

Feeling left in the dust? Don’t worry! Introducing the resurrection round for any team lagging two points behind. You get a free throw with everyone else pausing to watch. Nail it, and you’re back in the game. Miss it, and well…you get to be the cheer squad!

6. Customize your game

Don’t be afraid to add your own twist to the game. Maybe introduce silly penalties for missing shots or rewards for epic throws. “Beer Ball” is not just a game; it’s a canvas for your creativity. Unleash your inner party game Picasso!

For example:

  • For every shot you miss, spin in a circle three times before returning to your spot. 😵
  • If someone from the opposite team catches your throw without the ball touching anything else, they get a free throw! 🏀
  • If you hit the ball, your opponent opens their beer and chugs it as fast as possible. Whoever finishes first gets a point! 🏅

The possibilities are endless, so have fun and customize the rules to fit your group’s unique dynamic. After all, that’s what “Beer Ball” is all about - having a great time with your friends over some delicious cold brews. Cheers to that!
