Since the dawn of time, necessity has always been the mother of invention. Are those mammoth steaks too raw, fella? Try some fire! Having trouble lugging all those rocks back and forth? Say hello to the wheel! Feel the need to both slap and chop something? Vince’s gotcha covered.
However, until the early 1950’s, college students everywhere were thirsty for an entertaining party game. Surprising as it may sound, standing around and socializing about Eisenhower’s latest policies wasn’t exactly the most enjoyable pastime. So a few innovative minds at Dartmouth college decided to shake things up a bit.
What goes best with alcohol consumption? A game of hand-eye coordination, of course! Thus, beer pong was born. In its infancy, the game was played with paddles and a net, much like standard table tennis. However, because a drunken individual and a blunt object may not be the best companions, some changes had to be made. Around about the 1980’s, the game was simplified to the red-cup-pyramid version we see in campuses and garages across America today. Renowned among frat guys and tailgaters alike, beer pong is the cornerstone of many celebrations.
What would any game of beer pong be without the ping pong balls? Well, probably not a much of a game at all. Just a bunch of cups on a table.
