So this is how the game works
So what is beer pong?
The official rule book states that beer pong (sometimes called Beirut) is a drinking game where players throw a ping pong ball across a table, with the aim of landing the ball in a cup of beer.
The official British version, Brit Pong, has two players, with 10 cups set up in a triangle formulation at each end of the table. Other versions can have one to four players, and six cups.
Each team takes a turn attempting to shoot a ping pong ball into the opponent’s cups, which have a small amount of beer in the bottom. This keeps the cups stable when the ball hits it but fails to land inside.
If a ball lands in a cup (known as a ‘make’), the other team consumes the contents and the cup is removed from the table.
The first team to eliminate all of the opponents’ cups is the winner.
