A drinking game spawning from Beirut, Powell Cup brings a gentleman’s laziness to the drinking table. The founders of Powell cup dedicate its name the cherished memories of high times at Lake Powell
. In order to play, contenders require the traditional supplies of Beirut; and, in addition, it is necessary that two lawn chairs are set up on either side of the table for comfortable seating. The two-man teams arrange four cups on each end of the table in a diamond formation. Each side takes collective turns shooting ping-pong balls at the opposing cups, and, as a requirement, the balls must bounce at least once before landing in a cup. Additionally, team members on both sides of the table are not allowed to stand up from their seats. A hockey stick is highly recommended for handling ping-pong balls out of arms reach. So sit back, relax, and play Powell cup.
“Class starts late tomorrow, should we rack up some Powell Cup?”
Response: “I’ve got nowhere to go and no one to see so I could sit a few rounds.”
