It is rumored that Al Capone invented beer pong. During the prohibition period, Al and his friends would gather together in dark, sketchy basements to throw balls into red cups.
Al Capone's Friends: What can we do with this empty ping pong table?
Al Capone: Beer Pong!
And thus it was invented.

Beer pong consists of ten cups (and two water cups), two balls, a table, and two teams of two people. The concept is pretty obvious of course, but the rules are based off whatever the host of the party wants them to be. No exceptions. Here is a list of possible rules.

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.

n. A drinking game in which players attempt to throw ping pong balls across a table into an opponent's half-filled cups of beer. Players are required to drink the beer from any of their cups into which the opponent throws a ball. The first player to hit all their opponent's cups wins. The loser is required to drink whatever beer is left on the table (in opponent's cups). For sanitary reasons a cup of water is kept at either end of the table to wash the balls off after each throw, but if you've ever played you know it doesn't really help.

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.

A drinking game usually played on a ping pong table (hence the name) in which two teams face off against each other in a race to sink their ping pong balls in the opponents cups. The set up consists of two teams on either side of the table, 6, 10, or any specific amount of (preferably) red party cups filled slightly with beer, and ping pong balls.

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."

1- a drinking game nobody plays.

2- synonym for beruit, a game that lots of people play.
Hey, stop calling beer pong beruit. While you may be correct, beruit just sounds dumb. And its played on a ping pong table so beer pong still works.
