Flagaholics New 2024 Beer Pong Rules

Beer Pong Basics:


  • A long table, typically 8 feet
  • 22 plastic cups (10 for each team's triangle formation and 2 for rinsing balls)
  • 2 ping pong balls
  • Beer or beverage of choice


  1. Form two teams of one or two players each.
  2. Arrange 10 cups in a triangle shape at each end of the table, facing each other. Each cup is partially filled with beer.
  3. Place a rinse cup filled with water on the side to clean the balls if they hit the floor.


  1. Teams take turns trying to throw ping pong balls into the opposing team’s cups from behind their end of the table.
  2. If a ball lands in a cup, the opposing team removes that cup and drinks the contents. If both teammates land their balls in cups, they get the balls back for another turn.
  3. The team that eliminates all the opposing team's cups wins.

Standard Beer Pong Rules with Variations:

  1. Elbows Rule: Players must keep their elbows behind the edge of the table while throwing to prevent overreaching.
  2. Bounce Shots: Balls may be bounced into cups, but the defending team can swat away bounce shots. Bounce shots often count as two cups.
  3. Reracks: Each team is allowed to request a re-formation of the opposing team’s cups at the beginning of their turn, typically twice per game.

Ending the Game:

  • The game ends when all of one team’s cups have been removed.
  • The losing team has the opportunity for "redemption," where they try to hit remaining cups in a final turn. If they succeed, the game goes into overtime with three cups arranged in a triangle.

Safety and Considerations:

  • Always drink responsibly and know your limits.
  • Use water in cups if preferred to maintain hygiene.
  • Ensure everyone is comfortable with the game and consent is given to play.

Variations to Explore:

  1. Fireball: Successful shots in consecutive turns heat up a player, allowing them to keep shooting until they miss.
  2. Death Cup: If a player sinks a ball into a cup that’s already been hit but not yet removed, the game is instantly over.
  3. Island: Once per game, a player may declare a specific cup as the "island," and if they hit it, multiple cups are removed.
