If you know what the “Beer pong” is, you have probably spent some time in the States. It’s a collage drinking game started in America. When I studied in the States, I happened to be in the school where the game started. Well, at least that’s what they say. They call it Beirut instead of Beer pong though. but beer pong is a better known term for this game. Of all the drinking game I know around the world, I personally think it is the best game ever.
Here in Oakhouse Kichijoji 2, me and a bunch of my housemate played this game for the first time in the house. It turned out to be a great idea.
Aiming the cup on the other side…
Filling cups with beer…
The rule is simple. Put plastic cups on the table like bowling pins and pour a beer in each cup. Then you throw a ping pong ball from the opposite side of the table. Take turns. If you get the ball in, the opponent team has to drink. I honestly think this is the drinking game for share house because it usually gets messy while you play. You don’t want to play this game in your living room.
The table gets messy as the play goes on…
As the game goes on, it gets harder and harder to get the ball in the cup. Also, you get drunk quickly if your team is losing. Though the funny part is that you never know which team is going to win until the very end of the game. The last cup on the table is always the hardest one to get in. So even if you’re losing at the beginning, you still have a fair chance of winning later on.
Even if you’re not good at it, give it some time to practice. You will get better as you play again and again. This is why I think this game is close to sport. In fact, there is a world championship of beer pong.
It gets harder and harder as you get drunk.
It was great to be able to play the old drinking game I used to play. Everyone at the party loved the game even though some of them played it for the first time. We’ll probably host this kind of beer pong party sometime soon. Maybe even make it a regular event? Our house is probably the only house you can play beer pong in the entire city of Tokyo.
