Al Capone: Beer Pong!
And thus it was invented.
Rodeo- When one team shoots, misses, and gets the ball back, at the end of their turn they get a chance to make a cup by throwing it behind their back. This is worth two cups if made
Death Cup- If one team makes a cup and the opposing team fails to remove said cup from the table, and the other team makes the same cup in question again, this is Death Cup and the opposing team looses and drinks all the cups on the table. (see recycle)
Recycle- This is when the winning team chooses to recycle their alcohol for the next game, even if death cup happens, because they do not want to share it with the opposing team.
Both Balls Same Cup- This can either be worth 3 cups and balls back to the team who made them, or 2 cups and balls back, host's choice
Rerack- There can either be one or two reracks, host's choice.
Air Ball- The team that Air Balls drinks one cup of opposing team's choosing, unless it is the final cup
Automatic I- If there are only two cups remaining, the team can use the Automatic I rule to straighten them up.
No Shooting While Drinking- If a shot is made while the opposite team is clearly drinking and has no way of knowing the game is on, the shot is canceled.
Greg: Yeah man, but i need to know his house rules so i can keep up with what is cool and whats not.
Cory: Yeah man, he will hit us up with the essentials.
greg: no you dumbass, but there will be beiruit.
bob: oh good, thats so much better.
The goal is to toss your teams balls into the opponents cups in a series of turns. When a ball is sunk, the cup is drank, then removed. "Re-racks" can be used twice to a players liking, with each specific name, like "diamond" or "black man's penis."
Steve: Hell yeah man I'm down.
Note: Table size, number of players/cups, and house rules concerning bounces, misses, and crossovers vary depending on the college/fraternity/drinking club involved.
Addition: This definition of beer pong is technicaally Beirut, but the orginal version of beer pong is so widely unplayed that the name is now a synonym for Beirut, especially in the South and at public universities.
It is common to find a variation of the game played without paddles, which is typically called "Beruit." The definition of beruit can be simply put as, beer pong with out paddles. It is a correct understanding that all forms of beruit are forms of beer pong, but all forms of beer pong are not forms of beruit. Therefore, it should be known that beer pong played without paddles is officially "Beruit Beer Pong" or simply "beruit" for short.
It should be known that the rules of Beer Pong vary with each person who plays it. Therefore, no official rules can truly be declared during a game without the consent of the event host or the house rules, if there are any on display.
