Players team up for competitive two-on-two beer pong, trying to shoot ping pong balls into their opponents cups from across the table in this turn-based game.



Two teams of two face each other from accross the table. Cups are filled with beer and arranged in three rows, in a 1-2-3 triangle-forming manner, with the point facing the opposing team (see picture). Can be played in 6 or 10 cup format.


Beer pong can be played in one vs. one or two vs. two format (for 3v3 or more, I'd suggest checking out Civil War), and can be played in 6-cup or 10-cup format.

Before the first game begins, The team that gets the first shots is decided by players shooting at each-others cups simultaneously while maintaining eye contact (known as "eye-to-eye"), until a cup is made.

Beer pong is a turn based game, and a turn consists of each player on a team shooting their ball. Once both balls have been shot, the opposing side drinks the beer from the cups that were made, and their turn begins. The game ends when one team makes all of their opponent's cups. If redemption rules are in play, the other team may each get a shot at making their opponents remaining cups, in a shoot-until-you-miss fashion (where a 3-cup overtime can be forced if all cups are made).

Here are some popular optional rules:

  • Roll Backs: If a team makes both shots in the same turn, they get to re-shoot. This can be repeated indefinitely.
  • Same Cup: If a team makes both shots into the same cup at the same time (before the cup is removed), they win the game.
  • Bounces: If a ball is bounced into a cup, two cups are removed instead of one. However, bounce shots can also be blocked at no penalty.
  • Heating Up/On Fire: If a player makes two shots in a row (doesn't have to be in one turn), he calls out "Heating Up!". If a third shot in a row is made, he calls out "On Fire!", and gets to re-shoot until he misses.
  • Re-Racking: Each team can ask for the opposing team's cups to be rearranged in a way of their choosing. Typically only one re-rack can be requested per game.
  • No Rack, No Redemption: If a team doesn't request a re-rack over the course of the game, the opposing team gets no rebuttal and loses once all of their cups are made.
  • Celebrity Shots: A celebrity shot is when a player gives their turn up to someone not taking part in the game. Make or miss, the celeb shot uses up their turn.
