All you need are some cups, ping pong balls, and beer!

How to play “Beer Pong Beirut”

This classic game is played in teams of two. To begin, here’s what you’ll need:

  • A table
  • 20 Solo cups (10 for each team)
  • 2 ping pong balls
  • Beer, of course!

1. Set up your table.

Each team sets up their cups in a pyramid shape at the end of their side of the table. The base of the pyramid should have 4 cups, followed by 3 cups in the next row, then 2, and finally 1 cup on top.

2. Fill those cups up!

Make sure they’re filled with roughly the same amount of beer so you don’t get drunk too fast!

3. Decide who goes first.

You can flip a coin, play rock-paper-scissors, or whatever method you prefer.

4. Start shooting!

The first team gets to shoot one ping pong ball per player on their turn. They must try to shoot the ball into one of the opposing team’s cups.

5. Keep playing.

If a ball lands in a cup, the other team has to drink that cup and take it off the table.

6. Win the cup drinking game!

The first team to eliminate all of their opponent’s cups wins!

2. Flip Cup

Another classic cup drinking game that’s perfect for large groups, “Flip Cup” is a race to chug and flip your cup before the other team. Careful though, this game can get messy real fast!

How to play “Flip Cup”

Playing “Flip Cup” is easy, and all you need are some Solo cups, drinks, and a table or flat surface to play on. Here’s how it goes:

1. Divide into two teams.

Each team should have the same number of players; they should stand across from each other on opposite sides of the table.

2. Fill your cups.

Each player should have a cup filled with their drink of choice, preferably beer. The drinks should be lined up on the edge of the table in front of each player.

3. Start flipping!

Both teams start at the same time; the first player on each team chugs their drink and then tries to flip the cup from its edge up onto the top of the table.

4. Pass it on.

Once a player successfully flips their cup, they pass it down to the next player, who repeats the process.

5. The fastest team wins!

The first team to finish flipping all of their cups wins!

3. Rage Cage

Test your reflexes and hand-eye coordination with “Rage Cage”, a fast-paced game perfect for competitive players. This fun drinking game is also known as Boom Cup or Stack Cup.

How to play “Rage Cage”

You’ll need some cups, a large circular table, and two ping pong balls to set up for this game. Here’s how this cup-drinking game goes:

1. Set up your ‘cage.’

Arrange 20 Solo cups in the center of the table and fill them halfway with beer. Then, place one cup in the middle, filled to the brim with a mixture of all the players’ drinks.

2. Gather your players.

Gather around the table and give two players on opposite sides of each other an empty cup and one ping-pong ball.

3. Start bouncing!

The players with the empty cups start by bouncing their balls on the table and trying to get them into opponents’ cups.

4. Move fast.

If a player successfully lands the ping-pong ball in their cup on the first try, they can pass their cup and ball to any player they want. They must pass it to the player on their left if they make it onto their second or third try.

5. Keep going!

The cup-drinking game continues until two players are playing next to each other. If one bounces their ball into a cup before the other can, they can stack their cup on top of the other player’s.

6. Drink!

If you have your cup stacked, you have to get a filled cup from the center of the table and drink it. Once you have your empty cup, you can try bouncing your ball again.

7. Don’t lose.

Whoever got their cup stacked last, they need to drink the last cup in the center and are declared the loser. Then the game starts again!

4. Four Corners

Looking for a cup-drinking game that’s easy to set up but still brings the fun? “Four Corners”, also known as Beer Ball, is a perfect choice for a more casual yet still competitive game.

How to play “Four Corners”

All you need for this game is a flat surface, four cups, four unopened beers, and two ping pong balls. Here’s how to set it up and get playing:

2. Divide into teams.

“Four Corners” is best played in two teams, with each team standing on opposite sides of the table. Do a toss coin to decide which team goes first.

3. Begin throwing!

Both players on the first team throw one ping pong ball each, trying to hit their opponent’s cups.

4. Knocking over opponent’s cups!

If a player successfully knocks over an opponent’s cup, both players on the team should have to open their beers and start drinking ASAP.

The opposing team should try to retrieve the ball and place it back on the table before the other team finishes their drink.

5. Declare a winner!

The first team to successfully finish both their beer cups wins!

5. Quidditch Pong

Potterhead and beer lover? This cup-drinking game is perfect for you! “Quidditch Pong” combines elements from the beloved Harry Potter series with the classic drinking game, so grab your friends and brooms, and get ready to play!

How to play “Quidditch Pong”

This game requires some Solo cups, a table, ping pong balls, and drinks. Here’s how it goes:

3. Fill your cups.

Each team should fill their cups with a drink of their choice, preferably beer.

4. Start playing!

Each player takes turns throwing a ping pong ball into the other team’s cups. This game is similar to Beer Pong, just with a Quidditch twist. The amount of points that a cup is worth varies by special rules, for example:

  • 10 points: For using your bludgers to swat a ball illegally or if you knock your cup over.
  • 10 points: For a regular make. – 20 points: For making a shot through any of the three goals, which can be legally swatted by the other team’s bludgers (hands)
  • 20 points: If you score three shots in a row, you drink a Gurding Potion. You now have extra endurance and shoot until you miss, each shot counting as 20 points.

5. Keep playing until one team wins!

The first team to reach 150 points wins! Whoever scores the Golden Snitch (the final cup) gets 150 points and ends the game immediately.

2. Get ready to shoot!

Each player takes turns bouncing a ping-pong ball off the table, the death cup, and into one of the surrounding cups. If a player successfully lands their ball in another player’s cup, the owner must drink it, and they have three chances to flip their cup.

8. Yahtzee

A straight mind might be hard to come by when playing a drinking game, so why not embrace it with a classic game of “Yahtzee”? This beloved family game can be easily adapted to add some drinking fun.

How to play Drunk “Yahtzee”

To get started, you’ll need dice, scorecards (download online or create your own), and drinks of choice. Here’s how this cup-drinking game goes:

1. Roll the dice!

“Yahtzee” is all about rolling the right combination of numbers, so each player starts by taking turns rolling five dice. The goal is to get as many points as possible.

After your initial roll, you can choose which dice to keep and which ones to re-roll up to two times.

3. Score your rolls!

Once you’ve completed your three rolls, score your points based on the combinations of numbers you have. Here’s a simple breakdown:

  • Four of a kind: Same as above but with four matching dice.
  • Full House: Three of one number and two of another (e.g., if you roll two 3s, two 2s, and a 6, your score would be 25).
  • Straight: Five sequential numbers (e.g., 1-5 or 2-6). This is worth 30 points for a small straight or 40 points for a large straight.
  • Yahtzee: Five of the same number (e.g., if you roll five 4s, your score would be 50).
