3. American Flag Beer Pong
What you’ll need: 35 Cups (15 Red, 11 White, 9 Blue) 2 Ping Pong Balls, 1 large table
How it works: Ever played beer pong before? Of course you have. Although it’s primarily associated with frat boys and sloppy college girls, this is one game that the whole family can enjoy…21-years of age and over of course. Instead of sticking to the traditional six to 10 cup triangle, use the red, white and blue cups to create the image of the American flag. There should be five rows of seven cups:
Row 1: First three cups should be blue, and the rest lined up should be red.
Row 2: First three cups should be blue, and the rest lined up should be white.
Row 3: First three cups should be blue, and the rest lined up should be red.
Row 4: All white cups
Row 5: All red cups
Rules: Basically like beer pong, only you get absolutely no re-racks, and if you and your partner each make a cup, the other team still gets to shoot. You do not get the balls back because on a hot streak one team could definitely dehydrate, and we’re all about hydration on the 4th of July. Jumping from the traditional 10 cups to 35 should definitely keep you and your partner busy for a while, and you’re guaranteed to be the life of the party once you finish up your first game.
