12 pack of Root beer

8 ft Table

Step 2: Set Up

1. Place Cups like bowling pins on both ends of the table (Back row 4, 3rd row 3, 2nd row 2, and 1 and the front)

2. Fill cups ¼ full of Root beer to obtain stability of the cups so the cups will not fall over if a ping pong ball hits the cup too hard (2 cans of Root beer for each team)

3. Fill wash cups with warm water and place the wash cups to the side of the table for both teams

4. You are now set up to play

Step 3:

Do not stress about making mistakes, you will get better with practice

This is just a game, you will just drink some root beer even if you lose

Step 4: Rules of the Game

1. Elbow doesn’t cross the Table

2. If both team mates make cups team shoots again

3. Make 2 cups in a row you’re heating up and 3 cups in a row you’re on fire and when fire is accomplished shoot until you miss

4. Island (cup by itself) if called and made is 2 cups

5. If same cup is made by both team members it’s 3 cups and balls back

6. 2 re-racks per team

7. If ball is bounced into a cup pull 2 cups, can be slapped out of air after first bounce and before entering a cup

8. If center cup and 3 corner cups are made then ring of fire is obtained and that team wins by default

9. Caught air balls equals a cup pulled by the team that overshot the table

10. If player does not make a cup the entire game and your team loses you have trolled the game and must sit under the table for the duration of the next game
