What Do You Call This Drinking Game?

Cheers!

Posted on

Hey crew — Sam here. Boy, do I have a question for you. Like many fine young American men and women, I enjoy a cold brewski every now and then. And you know what that means: Me and my crew ALSO ~love~ to play drinking games.

Because time getting wasted isn't time wasted.

One game in particular stands out. You know the one I'm talking about — two sets of cups (usually 10) laid out at opposite sides of a table in a pyramid format.

It's the game where you usually are way better at it when you're hammered.

This is like the French national beer pong team or something. Maybe they're playing with like, Champagne or something?

Well ANYWAY, word on the street is this game goes by a few names. Some call it "beer pong."

Others call it "Beirut" or "Rut" for short, pronounced the same as the Lebanese capital. IDK why, that's just the way things are.

And if you're playing with six cups, you might call it..."six cup"!

This is the weak version. I went to Notre Dame, and we wouldn't be caught dead playing with just six cups.

Or maybe you call it by another name! Either way, we need to settle this debate — what is the proper name for this drinking game?
