Thing is, the drinking games we played
didn't involve plunking an object into the
beer that had just been handled by a
guy who just got done adjusting his balls
in the bathroom and didn't wash his hands
afterwards. Ya know?



Ha! Very true. It's weird; you could ping a shot off the rim and have it land in an ashtray, or even the spitoon-type receptacle for the tobacco chewing baseball players, and the only gripe was that whatever stuck to it "wasn't fair" as it altered the weight and bounce of the ball. There would be literally no word on the sanitation of said ball, it would just require a wiping on one's shirt or jeans to visibly remove the bias to the satisfaction of the non-throwing team.

I can't make this stuff up. Tiltpoul's offering pretty much sums it up. It's absolutely crazy. The fact that GAMING SPACE has been used to hold these events, that goes to show the power of this simple game. That a college bar, famous for $0.25 draught and shots on the cheap (college kids, after all) could get hundreds of dollars out of these same kids just by sheer numbers, it's kind of remarkable.

@Nareed, a non-drinker such as you, or an ex-drinker such as myself, would see it as so much idiocy. Surely no one has ever been driven to drink just from seeing this game. It doesn't have THAT much pull. But for anyone already looking to get smashed, you play it just once, and by the end of the night you'll know everything about 2 bounce, consolidation, defense house rules, the whole lot. It's very addictive, and just plain fun ;)

President/A$$---- played 3handed is a very good strategy game. the rules we used 3handed were if you throw a pair matching a single card or a pair it would clear to you or if you threw trips matching a single card it would clear to you. so say you had to lead with the 3c and had no other 3s in your hand and the next player threw a 5, then it was likely he had a pair of 4s in his hand and trip 5s before he threw that 5 or just that 5 and if you dont have anymore 3's in your hand the 3rd player has the rest. youre better off just holding onto a pair waiting to see if the person before you throws a single card of that same rank or that same pair and then you skip the other two players and clear it to yourself. and lets say you had a 4 in your hand too, that means the 3rd player probably has the last 4 so youd hold onto your 4 until he played his 4 so you can then play your 4 and skip the second player.

Beer Pong is HUGE!

My brother-in-law is in his 40's and plays competitively. He's earned a couple trips to Vegas to play in the national finals.

Read any college chat board and O'Sheas is at the top of the list for recommendations when visiting Vegas.

That's partly because O'Shea's is the Vegas home of Beer Pong. Plus, the vibe there does remind people of a frat house. If it had a hotel, the collage boards would say to stay there too.

Of course many of the same forums advise staying at IP as well.

Compared to the average college dorm, the IP earns it's "Palace" name. And the price is right. Plus, it's right next door to O'Shea's.

When I was in high school, we used to play this game on long bus rides... however, there was no drinking involved and we called the game President/Intern (alas, I was in high school during the Clinton administration).
