Picture of Arduino Beer Pong Arcade
We are going to be making a flashy beer pong table.   The table lights up as cups are eliminated and old style arcade sounds are played.

This games elevates the subtle art of BEER PONG to a new level.  A sporting level.  A competitive, exciting, potentially sober (but hopefully not), future olympic sport!

This instructable only shows how to make half a table, but to complete the game and make ot 2 sided, just repeat all the steps and attach the two sides.

Here's what you'll need-

- 1000x800 sheet of ply
- 6 x Pint Cups
- White + Coloured Paint
- Old beer cask or keg for style points
- Some scrap wood / box / bricks for base

- Arduino board
- Bread Board
- 6 x LEDs
- 6 x Piezo sensors
- loads of wire
- Basic Soldering skills

-  Patience.....

-  More Patience

Step 1: Making the Table

Get a sheet of whaever wood is lying around, MDF / Ply, whatever it's going to be painted so dont worry too much about it.

Cut the sheet to 1000mm x 800mm.

Decide out where you want your cups to sit, by drawing a triangle and deviding the triangle into 4 even triangles (like the TRIFORCE).

The corners of each traingle show the centre points of your cups.

Drill a 10mm hole through the table at each centrepoint.

Paint all surfaces white and give it time to dry.

Step 2: Map out the Table Pattern

run tape around the outside of the table, and one strip dividing the top surface in half.  Like the pattern on a PingPong table.

Slap on a colour of your choice to complete the pong styling.

We chose to go for grey as  our design is intended for use by the carling company.

Let it dry.

Definitely would like a video to see how everything looks when it's in use.

Yes, a video, please!
