Be Original

Customise your Beer Pong Table!  Create something to be proud of… Lets be serious for a moment, is there really any bigger sense of accomplishment than creating something like this:

… For the sole purpose of providing yourself with yet another reason to drink???  Sure, you could be lame and use any old generic table, you could even unscrew your closet door and place it on top of a couple chairs (Yes I have done this one and it is perfect in times of desperation), but would it really be as cool as playing on something you yourself created?! I think not!

If you are creatively challenged, or just plain lazy, check out some of these sites:

Anything Can Be Turned Into A Drinking Game

Namely, video games… Video games are quite simply the easiest thing to turn into the fiercest of drinking competitions. 

The game must be multiplayer of course, preferrably up to four players (unless you want to get ambitious and link multiple systems together), the more the merrier right?!

In college we used to use the old school Nintendo 64 system where games like Bond, Mario Cart, & Mario Tennis (This was my favorite) lend themselves very nicely to the cause. 

Mario Cart

Great on Nintendo 64 and now Gamecube because 4 controller ports allow for more players.

Rules: Points are awarded per race and how much you drink depends on where you finish.  For example, the person who comes in first is awarded 4 points.  Each point equals 1 quarter of a beer, or of your drink if you are drinking a mixed drink.  So that person can make one person drink their entire beer, 2 people drink half, and so on and so forth. Second place is worth 2 points, and third and fourth have the pleasure of drinking as the losers always should.  Simple enough right?

Bond

Another fan favorite, this game is simple. Again the 4 player options lends itself well to the cause.

Rules: Everytime you die you drink (how much is up to you).  At the end of the round the same system as above applies.  The winner gets 4 points and second place gets 2.

Mario Tennis

So I’ve saved the best for last.  We used to play this game for hours before we went out, and often times it was the reason we did not make it out!

Best played in doubles mode (2 vs. 2) in rings, and rings only as this variation of the game lends itself perfectly for such a cause.

Rules: Play the game to 200 rings (ends when one team accumulates 200 rings/points).  Each ring counts as “a drink”.  “A Drink” is classified as however you deem it, on second, one chug, etc… At the end of the point whomever wins the point will accumulate a certain amount of rings based on how many rings the ball goes through throughout the rally, whether it be 1 or 20. For each ring the one’s who lose the point must drink that amount of rings split between the two players… 200 rings… You do the math… A few games of this and you’re set for the night, perhaps the weekend!
