Seriously...that looks like the goldfish game that they have at carnivals! 8-o You'd probably be drunk like a dead goldfish if you got through that one. :*)

I'm sure the rules are different for each place you play...I have seen it played with 6 cups and 10 before. Either way, you're still drinking the equivalent of like 2-3 cups of beer in a 30 minute period. I have to imagine that messes you up!

I forget - do you have to bounce the ball once before you get it in there or not?

Depends on house rules.

Yahoo! News wrote:Mich. Pair Wins Beer Pong Championship

ANN ARBOR, Mich. - A pair of recent University of Michigan graduates are each $5,000 richer for being the best at a national tournament involving a campus drinking game popular among many college students.

Jason Coben and Nick Velissaris are the champions of the " World Series of Beer Pong," which took place earlier this month near Las Vegas. The two beat out more than 160 other competitors to split the $10,000 grand prize.

Beer pong is played this way: While standing, players attempt to toss a Ping Pong ball into cups that are partially filled with beer at the other end of the table. If the players succeed, their opponents are forced to drink the beer in the cup.

Beer pong has made the transition from house-party game to being a featured event in bars that host tournaments. Companies sell custom-designed beer pong tables and related products. A merchandiser of beer pong paraphernalia held the "World Series of Beer Pong."

Critics say the game encourages binge drinking, but Coben and Velissaris say it's not about irresponsible drinking. They say it's a way to have a good time with friends.

"It's like playing darts at a bar," Coben told The Ann Arbor News.

Coben and Velissaris picked up the game several years ago. Coben was a swimmer at Michigan, Velissaris was a wrestler, and they got to know each other through the athletic community.

When they were old enough to go to bars, they brought the game with them and played among friends.

Eventually, the two began helping to organize weekly tournaments in Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti.

At the national tournament, Coben and Velissaris were sponsored by a campus-area bar, The Brown Jug, which paid the $550 entry fee. The bar's owner, Perry Porikos, agreed to put up the money.
He said Coben and Velissaris are regular customers who have helped out in a pinch at the bar. The two paid their own airfare and plan to pay back Porikos from their winnings.

They also wore T-shirts with the bar's name during the competition.

I was in Ann Arbor for a month this summer and spent a majority of my evenings (and some early mornings) at the Brown Jug. What a FINE establishment. $3.75 for Knob on the rocks!!!

This story is one of the eight headlines on Yahoo's home page right now. I can't believe this is "news."

PFFT... Beer pong is for wussies...they should try shot pong (and champagne pong, while it may sound gay, is much drunker than beer pong as well)

(In beer pong, whoever loses the match must drink the remaining cups on the table - not a huge deal when you are talking about beer, since there is usually only about 6 total beers out there to start with, but the stakes are raised a bit when you start talking about shots)

Perhaps you would like Zima Pong? Or Mikes Hard Lemonade Pong?

The Brown Jug is a decent establishment.
Anyways, I think the real reason they won is because beer at house parties in Ann Arbor is free.
You go to East Lansing, they charge you $5 for a cup :-t

Getting tired of us stealing all the Ohio football talent I guess.

Beer pong is good stuff, my game needs a lot of work though. Then again, with this game, everyone is a winner.

Shot pong sounds like something that you should get from the free clinic.
