SUMOskinny magazine is the ultimate guide to college life. Part local, part national, and all college.
Having spent hundreds of drunken hours running game on beer pong tables across the country, I can easily say that it's time for a new college party icon.
Knowing how much college kids love Solo cups and the insane amounts of beer consumed during a night on the pong table, the masterminds at BasketPong have created hands down the best drinking game to date.
BasketPong is a combination of America's favorite past times, beer pong and basketball. Here are the ingredients:
- 2 parts beer pong (shooting at cups of beer with ping pong balls)
- 1 part basketball (the net concept and backboard)
- fill with beer and enjoy cold
The court is set up like a game of basketball with a BasketPong positioned approximately 8 ft apart. The game is then played like the beer pong, each team of two gets two shots to make one of the cups hanging from the backboard. If a cup is made, the other team must remove said cup and consume the cold (or warm) beer inside. Place the cup aside, aim, shoot and repeat.
Don't have room for a full court game? No worries, there are countless ways to play the game half-court style. My personal favorite is a good old fashion game of H-O-R-S-E. You all know the roles, pick a shooting point, drain a cup and watch your comrades consume the beer.
The BasketPong comes in an easy carrying case making it perfect for tailgates, beach days, or any other time you want to have a blast drinking beer. Set up time is about 1 minute so there is no excuse for you lazy bums out there.
