Beer Pong | Beirut

Beer Pong, otherwise known as Beirut, is a popular drinking game where players are challenged to throw a standard ping pong ball into the opposing team's beer filled (or water filled) cups from the end of a table. Typically consisting of teams of two players, Beer Pong games begin with either six or ten cups organized, or racked, in a triangle formation on either end of the table. If a player successfully lands a ball within a cup, that cup is to be consumed and removed from the table. The game finishes when all cups have been eliminated.
