The ball & cup version of chandeliers is a hybrid of Quarters and Chandeliers (Coin) in that a ball and cup replace the quarters and shot glasses that are passed around, and rather than continuously refilling the middle cups, a finite number of cups are filled for each game, including a "death cup" for the last drink.
Players spread out evenly around the table. All of the cups (except the two shooting cups) are placed in the center of the table, and filled with alcohol (with one death cup filled to the brim). Two players opposite each other begin the game with 1 ball and 1 empty cup each.
Chandeliers (ball & cup) version is played in a rapid fashion, similar to Quarters, where each players goal is to shoot the pong ball into the empty cup as quickly as possible, and then pass the cup off. If the cup is made on the first shot attempt, it can be passed anywhere on the table, otherwise it's passed to the player on the left. In making a shot on the first try you can screw people over in one of two ways, by passing the cup behind the person who has the other cup, or by passing it in front of that same person.
When a shot is made and the person to the left is still shooting, their empty cup is smacked off the table, forcing that person to pull a cup from the mid-table pool and drink it (quickly!) in order to have a new cup to shoot their ball into.
The game continues at a rapid-pace until all cups from the middle pool are gone. And of course, whoever gets their cup smacked last drinks the death cup!
