Why flip cup is better than beer pong.
How? it requires absolutely no skill at all. The only way flip can be better in any way, shape, or form, is because girls like it better because they suck at pong.
Seriously, I know multiple people who can hit it first flip 9 out of 10 times...myself included, and I have played like 5 times in my life.
i really do feel like flip cup is much easier to master, however it does involve many more players, but the game is very short-lived, reason there are beer pong tournaments all over but no flip cup tournaments. pong is the winner
I once played 50 straight games at our frat's party with a cup of wop. I was still standing at the end and have the photo to prove it. (for those that are my facebook "friends", scroll through my photos and find towards the very end the one of me and my buddy Twist labeled "drunk".
Also, another reason flip cup is awesome compared to beer pong is that it is a drinking game in which you do exactly that - drink! Why spend hours waiting to play a game for 20-30 minutes because people can't make it in the cup. It's boring. Instead, do some sort of chugging competition.
However, Ultimate Beer Pong, which we would play in the fraternity house, was awesome. Two players per team, 10 cups per person, three balls. Rock, paper, scissors to see how many balls each team gets to start. Once the first ball flies, its no holds bar. Pushing, shoving, tackling, diving - anything it takes to get that ball. The only other rule is that you have to shoot it from behind your side of the table. So you can run around the table, under the table, tackle your opponent through a door (seen it), and get the ball, you just have to run all the way back without getting close-lined in order to shoot. It adds brutality, stamina, strength and the much-needed excitement to an otherwise boring game.
Then again, when all else fails, just pull out the deck of cards. [afro]
