I play beer pong quite a bit. We play with mainly traditional rules, but my roommate introduced me to the call it rule, which means if you call the cup you make then it counts for two. However, if you make it in a different cup it doesn't count at all. Also, we stopped playing the death cup rule because it resulted in too many spilled beers. We replaced it with a pressure rule - if you lose by more than 7 cups you have to take a shot along with drinking all the beer.
I play sometimes but mostly when tailgaing. I have one of those portable tables displayed in my beer pong hub. We don't fill the cups with beer, we fill them with water and drink from cans or bottles....lol that may be the old fogy way but I'm not gettin sick!
I play in a lot of tournaments in bars and we have to use water in the cups instead of beer. Most states wont let you play the game in a bar if you area using beers. Plus i agree with ya, I don't want to drink a beer out of a cup ten other people have already had their slobber on
