"Before I begin, I would like to put to rest a dirty dispute: the difference between Beirut and Beer Pong
. Let me start off by saying that they are different. Whoever tells you that Beirut and Beer Pong are one and the same probably also told you that he was popular in high school. Neither of these statements are true. A great deal of confusion could be avoided if Beirut was always referred to as the version without paddles. Beer Pong uses ping-pong paddles. Hence, Beer PONG — get it?"
Beirut/ ruit, is a popular drinking game, that some less informed people like to call Beer pong ( beer pong is a totally different game).
Materials: 6-8 foot table
22 solo cups
3 ping pong balls
beverage of choice
water for the water cups
In ruit you set up 10 solo cups on each side of a table. Arrange the cups in a pyramid formation, 4 cups, 3 cups, 2 then 1, all of the edges of the cups touching. Fill the cups with any beer you want, preferablly filling the cups at least half full. also have two water cups to wash off dirty ping pong balls. After your set up a player from each team can shoot for first shot. After this is won players continue to shoot one team at a time, three ping pong balls into the opposite teams cups. When one team sinks a ball, the other team drinks the cup that the ball landed in. This procces is continued until one team makes all of the other teams cups. There are many variations of the game, and other little rules regarding rearranges, bounces, when you pick up cups and so on... depending on who you are playing with.
contrary to popular belief, beirut(ruit) and beerpong are two different games. Beerpong uses paddles to hit the ball into the cup, while in Ruit the ball is simply tossed in by hand
"The difference between Beer Pong and Beirut is that Beer Pong refers to any variation of the game that uses paddles to hit the ball in the cup, while in Beirut, the ball is thrown by hand, " said Jason Keith, head of the National Beer Pong League.
