'Beirut (Beer Pong)' Drinking Game Instructions

Players: 1

Beer Pong is a drinking game in which players throw a ping-pong ball across a table with the intent of landing the ball in a cup of beer on the other end. The game typically consists of two 2-player teams and multiple cups set up on each side set up in triangle formation, much like bowling pins or billiard balls in their starting positions. The goal of the game is to eliminate the other teams' cups before one's own cups are eliminated. When a ball lands in a cup, that cup is eliminated and the defending team must consume all of the beer inside that cup. The losing team must consume all the beer remaining in the winning team's cups. Throwing the ball can be done with an arc shot, or straight line, or a bounce shot. This is not a game for the casual player. It is a serious competition, one involving skill, luck, and of course a little booze. There are leagues dedicated to the fineries of this endeavour. There are varying rulesets depending on where you play, but one official ruleset is well defined at this site.
