Beer Game: No Name Game|
Category: Miscellaneous Mish-Mosh of Icebreakers
Best way to play is with two teams of two people each. It's really very simple but can cause a mean hangover.
Each team sets up ten cups arranged like bowling pins on their end of the table. Fill one cup (players choice) all the way to the top, fill the rest half way. Each team takes turns bouncing the ping pong ball across the table. If it lands in a cup, the other team must drink it and remove the cup from their side of the table. When the ball lands in the full cup, both players on that team must drink an entire beer using the cup already full and filling up a half full cup. When you bounce the ball into your oppenent's last cup, you win and they have to finish any of the cups left on your side of the table.
Draw an imaginary line down the center of the table that the teams cannot cross.
One additional rule that makes it a little ruff is the loose ball rule. If you bounce the ball and your oppenents have trouble catching it, you can cross the line and try to get it back. Caution: full-scale brawls have resulted from this rule.
