The Beer Pong Articles / Pong
Beer Pong is one of the most known drinking games around, so coincidentally the game has been known for getting people pretty inebriated. Traditionally beer pong is played with 10 cups per side, this is usually 2 beers worth of alcohol. These party goers laughed at the idea of 2 beer games, and at the idea of potential alcohol poisoning. After an extra trip to the store for cups and beer they set up their racks and prepared themselves for a battle the likes of which their livers had never seen before
Most of us have had a point in our lives where we thought, “I can play a game with more than 10 cups” these are usually the famous last words followed by a blacking out, or power yacking. These guys decided that it would be acceptable to play beer pong with 36 cups, almost 4 times the amount of a normal beer pong game. Their back line has 8 cups instead of the traditional 4!
Number 4 is quite a step up from the last one, number 5 used 36 solo cups in order to play, which was about 7 beers total. The fourth rack on our list is just about 4 times that size! These guys have made a rack so large that a triangle would not even fit on their table, they had to remove the corners of their rack and they still have a staggering 12 beers in 114 cups!
This next party goer made his rack too big for his table also, rather than cut corners like number 4, the third on the list simply made two smaller racks positioned perpendicular to the normal racks. These “small” racks are still 50% larger than a normal beer pong rack. Their larger rack has a 10 cup back line, totaling for 140 cups and 14 beers!
Our last two nominations of best beer pong rack have led us to one simple conclusion, you’re probably going to run out of table space before you run out of beer. Number 2 makes the list because not only did they have the balls to play beer pong with more cups than our other featured party goers, but they also built a table big enough to hold all of their cups in a triangle. This massive hour glass shaped table is large enough for a 20 cup back line! That’s 210 cups and 21 beers per side!
Our final game of beer pong is something to behold, rather than make one extra-large rack, these guys have come up with a triple stacked version of beer pong. Its pyramid pongs drunker cousin, this game rack takes the win because it has more cups than anyone else at a staggering 360 cups but they also were able to play on a regular sized dining table something the other party goers on this list had a hard time doing. To put this into perspective there is more beer in one side of this game than there is in entire 30 rack….
Beer Pong, the ever changing party game where the rules are set by the house. Rules can vary from naked miles for the trolls or instant losses for lingering drinks. In order to prepare you for all these complex rules, here at LEDBPT we have conducted extensive research in regards to house rules and have compiled a list of our favorite house rules for you to try at home.
Coming in at number 5, is Head Hunter. With this rule, participants must be careful when placing their shots, a mistake could cost you your head… but more importantly a cup! Head hunter is a unique rule that lets you unleash some of your pent up frustration that comes with any drinking game. Any time the ball is shot and air-balled off the end of the table it can be caught by the opposing team before it hits the ground. If the ball be caught, they player on the receiving side has the opportunity to throw the ball at the throwing team’s heads. Players on the throwing team are allowed to dodge the shot but not grab it out of the air. Should the other team be hit in the head, it counts for a cup.
Explosion is a rule that can easily turn the tables in a close game, it’s a simple rule with a devastating outcome, almost instantaneous rage quits from the other team. Teammates that sink the ball into the same cup eliminate all cups that are touching said cup. Should both players make the middle cup at the start of the game all touching cups would be eliminated, this would erase 7 cups from the table in a single turn.
Circle of death is you guessed it, a deadly rule. It is one of the very few rules in beer pong where it actually results in an instant loss if achieved. There are 4 cups that must be made in order to trigger the Circle of Death. Each of the corner cups must be made first, the two at the bottom and the one at the top. This makes a circle of 7 cups in the center of the table, by then making the center cup last a Circle of Death is achieved and the game is over.
10 cups not enough for you? Want your party to go a little more HAM? Beeramid is definitely the rule for you then. It makes beer pong shoot from 10 cups up to 20 cups total. A traditional rack is arranged then an additional rack of 6 cups are placed above the initial 10. On top of those 6 a smaller rack of 3 is placed above them followed by a single cup to top the rack. Beeramid works a little differently to normal beer pong, only specific cups can be made. There are two ways to make cups, only cups on the top rack can be made by shooting the ball into. If a ball is made into a lower tier row the ball is pulled and the cup stays. The second way to make a cup is to knock a cup from a higher tier into a lower tier, the cups are then stacked and are eliminated, and this is an easy way to eliminate hard to make cups on the top tier.
Sink it and Drink it is straight pong plain and simple, there is no heating up, no fire, no bounces, no nothing. You progress through the game on talent and talent alone. There are no reracks like there are in traditional pong, instead every time there are 6 or 3 cups remaining it changes to an automatic triangle. Straight pong is ideal when there is a large group trying to play, its quick and intense games make it easy for everyone to get in on the fun.

We are essentially the Lamborghini of Beer Pong Tables, offering a rigid metal frame construction that meets tournament regulations of 8ftx2ft dimensions and is capable of standing up to the wildest parties or events you can throw at it. RGB LEDs reflect 16 different colors off infinity mirrors creating the illusion of an endless space under the table’s glass top. An infrared controller located on the bottom of the tables gives the user the ability to change the color/strobe pattern of the lights or even make them sync up to music playing. Complete with removable legs, a bi-fold design and magnetic locks means that as soon as the party is over cleanup is a breeze.
We also offer customization options for our tables, adding unique customer created graphics in a white vinyl finish which really pops under the LED light.
