Point Pong is a portable, lightweight game set based on the popular beer pong game that can be used on land or in the pool. It can also be used without beer. It comes with two tables, eight side cup holders, 20 colored rings, 22 16-ounce cups, six balls, and a carry bag with carry handles and a detachable shoulder strap. Separate the two tables until the string in between them can't stretch any farther. Place cups into each space on the tables. Then, stand behind one table and throw the balls into the cups on the second table. The colored rings denote different point values: black is five points, yellow is three points, red is two points, and blue is one point. The object is to be the first to reach 15 points. When a ball lands in a cup, you move it to a side cup holder.
A second way to play is to keep the cups in play even if a ball has landed in them. In this version, the first player to 30 points wins. Both versions require two players or two teams of two players.
This game will be a lot of fun to play at tailgating parties, on the beach, and at backyard barbecues. We like that the included balls are a little heavier than traditional ping pong balls, which makes them easier to throw.
Point Pong is for ages 8 and up. Obviously, if you're playing this with beer for traditional beer pong play, it's for 21 and up.
This took us 10 minutes to set up.
Point Pong is available to purchase from PointPong.com, Amazon.com, Buy.com, and specialty retailers.
