Title: Beer (Water) Pong
Purpose: To inform the audience on the proper procedures to be taken while playing beer (water) pong. Thesis: I’m going to talk about the proper materials and set-up of the game, the rules, and the best beers to use for the game.
1. Attention Getter: Looking to lighten up a party? Break out the Pong Table.
2. Audience: Fun for everyone, people looking for a competitive party game or
for people looking for a drunken stupor. 50 to 62 percent of college students
admit to playing drinking games (Correia, & Cameron, 2010), so I might as well
teach them how to play right.
3. Thesis: I am going to discuss the proper set up of the game, the rules, and
(hypothetically) the best beers to use.
I. Set up and materials
A. 2 standard ping pong balls, 20, 16oz “Solo” cups, and a table
(preferably a ping pong table)
B. Cups are to be arranged in a pyramid shape with the back row centered
on the edge of the table
II. The Official Rules ("World series of," 2011)
A. 2 teams of two people alternate taking shots other than the first shot.
First possession is decided at an earlier time. If a team sinks both of their
shots, one ball is returned for an extra shot
B. Bounce shots are allowed, but still only count for one cup. Grabbing
and swatting is only allowed after the ball as bounced off the
table or a
C. Cups knocked over are to be reset and the shot will be replayed unless
the ball was obviously in the cup before it was knocked over
D. Distractions are allowed as long as it does not interfere with the air
surrounding the cups or cross the plane of play
E. No player may take offense to insults.
F. Players allowed to play with water
G. Being late= forfeit, “taking a nap” will result in a slap
H. When the last cup is hit, the teams whose cup was sunk gets to shoot
until they miss to try and make a comeback victory...
