Possible scenarios in beer pong

The moment a player scores, the opposing team has to immediately drink the contents of the cup and remove it from play. If the player throws too far without managing to touch a cup or the table, the latter has to drink from one of their own cups. When the ball bounces on the table before landing in a cup, the opposing team then drinks from this cup and the one placed next to it. In the event that the ball touches an element from the game, but doesn’t land in any cup, nothing happens and it’s down to the next player to throw. There are numerous other scenarios and new inventions are permitted. For example, as soon as the ball bounces on the table, the players can defend themselves by trying to catch it or deflect it. The most important thing is to have fun with it!

The game finishes when a player lands a throw in the opposing team’s last cup. The losing team must then drink the remaining cup from the opposing team. Beer pong is a sociable game. Have fun, think up some new rules and surprise your mates with your precision!
