Wildcat baseball is a pong style drinking game where teams of 2+ compete to score runs on offense by making cups or by preventing them while playing defense



Cup Setup: First, arrange the cups on the table in what will look somewhat like a diamond (see setup picture). A single with one cup would be where home plate should be, A double with 4 cups will be where 1st base should be, or off the right and a little farther than the single cup. Triple will be to the left and farther onto the table with 3 cups. Home run will be two cups farther down onto the table on each side in a line pointing towards the long end side of the table. A grand slam will be two cups at the farthest point on the table and in the middle in a line. Finally, you will have 4 off-colored cups that the defense can put anywhere on the table they want to at any given point during the game.

Player Positioning: The players participating in this game will surround the table for foul balls and outs. Last, pick a home team and an away team.


The Wildcat Baseball rules are easiest to explain when assuming the teams are 3v3, so we will explain from that perspective. You will stay in order 1 to 3 according to your lineup, and each player at bat shoots the ball once per turn (unless a foul ball occurs... see below). We suggest playing 9 innings, with 3 outs per team per inning.


Each player will take turns standing at home plate, about one foot from the table. They try to throw the ball into a cup that is labeled a single/double/triple or home run/grand slam, and they will shoot their pong ball. In the event of a make they are granted that base. If they completely miss the cup and it goes off the table this is considered an out.

Foul Balls: If the ball is on the table and the offensive team gets the ball back before it falls off, it's a foul ball and a-re throw(extra at bat) takes place. With both teams surrounding the table during gameplay, remember that the defense can swat the ball off the table for the out.
Home Runs: Home runs count as more than one point, depending how many players are on base at the time.
Grand Slam: Grand slams always count as 4 runs no matter how many players are on base.


After a shot, each team tries to get the ball before it goes off the table to either get the out (defense) or the foul ball (offense). The four off-color cups (or marked cups) represent double plays (2 outs) if they are accidentally made. There are three outs each inning, so this will give the defense the leg up in the inning with 2/3 outs scored on one turn.


Offense: Players on offense tend to not drink as much.

  • Double plays:Those 4 off colored cups come back to haunt you. If you make one of those you not only get two outs but you have to drink the amount to which it is closest to. So if you make a double play cup by the grand slam cups that is 4 drinks to you!

Defense: Most drinking takes place while on defense (unless you suck at shooting!).

  • Single: 1 drink (entire team)
  • Double: 2 drinks (entire team)
  • Triple: 3 drinks (entire team)
  • Homerun: 3 drinks + how every many is on base (entire team)
  • Grand Slam: 4 drinks (entire team)
