Here are two cool variations to the ever popular game of beer pong.

Volley Pong and Guerrilla Pong Variations


First up is volley pong. This game is played on a much larger scale than the traditional way. The easiest way to explain it is that it is beer pong, but with trash cans instead of 16 ounce cups. It is typically played outdoors as it would really tough to find a place inside where you rack twenty, 30-gallon trash cans. The game is played just like a regular game, except you are using a volley ball or basketball instead of ping pong balls. This game is a ton of fun and a cool variation if you are tired of playing the same old game.

Next up is guerrilla pong. Now, donít get this confused with guerrilla warfare or a large, furry monkey, it is simply a drinking game. This game is a fun new alternative to the original and has been gaining popularity over the last few years. Each team will start with 10 cups and throws the balls back and forth like a normal game. The kicker here is that in each game, one team is designated as the invading army (guerrillas) and the other the partisans.

When a guerrilla makes a shot, a cup is removed just like a regular game, However, when the partisans make a shot, a guerrilla must drink the contents and then refill the cup. No cups will be removed from the guerrilla side. This means that the guerrillas need to act fast and win the game, or they will be there drinking for a long time! This game can get dangerous if the guerrillas are not good at beer pong, so it is recommended that only good players and shooters should play on that side.
