A tailgate celebration is an American custom that everybody must experience. There simply isn’t anything like it. It has an environment that while hard to describe, is certainly distinct and will pique anybody’s interests!

There are a couple of reasons why everybody should experience tailgating. First off, you will certainly meet some extraordinary individuals that typically don’t attend other kinds of parties. These people have the tendency to be friendly and casual, and of course enjoy partying.

Another reason is the food. For some reason, hot dogs and hamburgers taste much better when they’re grilled outside of an arena. At a tailgate, you get to enjoy classic American food prepared in the standard method, on the grill!

Remember the alcohol. A lot of, if not all people consume booze at tailgates. You can definitely have fun without drinking, but many find that consuming a few beers (or considerably more than that) at the event significantly improves their experience. Consuming while lounging, listening to some excellent music, talking with others and watching some throw around the football is a great experience that can be enjoyed by all.

Tailgate Beer Pong

One of the greatest things about tailgating is the game of beer pong. Beer pong is a game played by numerous people on a table with a ping pong ball, beer and cups. The objective of the game is to get the ping pong ball into the cups arranged on the end of the opposing side of the table. Beer pong can be see at nearly ever tailgate party, college party and even at pubs and bars that hold their own tournaments. It is a great game that can be played nearly anywhere. You cannot go to a tailgate anywhere in America where beer pong is not present. It truly is a remarkable game.

College Parties, Things to Be Careful Of

Ever since I can remember, I have been going out, partying, drinking, having a good time, but always making sure I always act responsibly. I am huge advocate for enjoying all that life has too offer by going out partying and socializing. I have met so many great people over the years that I wouldn’t even consider changing a thing.

In present day however, there is a growing issue with people overdoing it, especially college kids. Drinking and driving deaths are at an all time high, and so are alcohol induced hospitalizations. With all of the crazy new types of alcohol, college parties, drinking games and drugs out there, it is important to keep a few things in mind when heading to party, or discussing it with your kids.

Party Safely in College and Elsewhere

College parties can be very fun, and a great way to have a good time with your friends. A few drinks and a few fun games with some talking and dancing. But be warned, not everything always goes according to plan, so here are a few things to remember about the infamous college party.

college party

Always be with someone else
It is always advisable that you stick with at least one other person when you go out to a party. You don’t know what someone might do to you if you drink too much or surround yourself with too many people that you do not know. Make sure you have your friends with you and you will never have to worry about this!

Drink some water in-between drinks
Do not drink beer or liquor to the point where you cannot be in control of yourself. When you need to possibly drive (never when drinking) or walk home, you need to be functional. With some water in-between alcoholic beverages, you will be able to stay hydrated and sober if necessary. You will also feel much better the next morning!

Only drink what you know
Do not drink anything unless you or a good friend got it or made it for you. If you do not know what is in the cup, how do you know it is safe to drink? This will decrease any chance of being drugged or poisoned. Although this is very rare, it is still important to be aware of when heading out for the night.

Play drinking games in moderation
We all love to play beer pong, cornhole and a variety of other drinking games. One key point to note is that although these games are incredibly fun, it is very easy to overdo it when playing. So, when you decide to play a game of pong or tailgate toss, make sure you limit your alcohol intake as well as the number of times you play in a given night to ensure that you do not go overboard.

Be Safe
If you remember these few tips, college parties, or any party for that matter can be loads of fun. As I mentioned, going out and socializing is very fun and can be important for building and maintaining new friends and relationships. If you make sure to always act responsibly, you will never have any problems. Here is a cool video to help you understand the basic Do’s and Don’ts of partying in college.

Inflatable Beer Pong at My New Home

Check out this great post from a longtime friend of ours. He recently purchased a new home and asked us where he could find himself an inflatable beer pong table for his new pool. We were able to recommend a number of places and cool ideas for him to spice up his yard for that next outdoor party! Let us know what you think!

inflatable beer pong table

After all these years I’ve finally been able to upgrade to the home of my dreams. I live in South Florida and just purchased my 3 bedroom 2 bath home with screened in patio and in-ground pool. Yes, I have always dreamed of an in-ground pool that I would not have to share with the general population. Public pools can be very dirty and there is a lot to be said for someone who can own and maintain their own pool. One of the greatest benefits is that I can go for a swim anytime I want without anyone else in the pool! The other great benefit is that I can play beer pong in my pool. Most public places don’t allow rafts or toys of any kind.

My First Backyard Party with Inflatable Beer Pong

I’m unpacked and settled in and preparing to host my first backyard pool party. I’ve invited my friends and family, prepared my menu to cook on the grill, and staged the pool, deck, and yard to welcome everyone to my backyard “oasis”. I purchased torches and installed around the edges of the pool to set the mood in the evening when I turn on the interior pool lights, and wait for everyone’s reaction. I made sure I had enough beach towels, chilled beer and soft drinks, munchies, and sun tan lotion. I also made sure to pick up a bunch of toys, including an inflatable beer pong table! My friends were able to refer me to a store that sells inflatable beer pong coolers. Who would have thought, a floating beer pong table with a built in cooler! This will be great to play a number of fun games as well as keep all of our refreshments cold, even in the pool! Here is a cool video I found about inflatable tables.

The day of the party arrives and it’s a beautiful, sunny, and breezy south Florida day. My guests start to arrive and tours of the house are provided, ending with the back yard and my pride and joy. The responses were as anticipated and I felt proud that my guests felt the same reaction that I did. Everyone loved my new set up, especially the beer pong table! As the sun set, I lit the torches, and turned on the pool lights, and lit candles as the tables. It was the perfect way to relax after a day of sun and fun and over-indulging in food and drink. My guests thanked me for a wonderful day, each asking to be included in the next backyard pool party.

Why I love Backyard Parties

Each day when I return from work, I go to my oasis and feel like I’m on vacation. Swimming, relaxing, reading, and cooking out. All my favorite activities and I don’t have to leave my home to enjoy them. It truly is a great feeling to be able to go out into my yard and do what I want, when I want. Life is good.

Cornhole: Another Fun Drinking Game

Even though this site is all about beer pong, beer pong tables and how to play the game, we are also passionate about many other drinking games. The most particular one we are talking about is cornhole. This game is equally as fun as a game of pong and can also be played anywhere. Check out the information below and see for yourself! One of our favorite tailgate and lawn games to play is Cornhole, also called tailgate toss, baggo or bean bag toss. The game uses a wooden board with holes big enough for the featured bean bags to travel through. Every single time a participant scores or passes a bean bag through the hole they will receive points. This game is incredibly popular and can be played anywhere by anyone.

The Game of Cornhole Toss

To play this well-liked game, you will initially need two cornhole boards. Each board is going to have one hole near the top and will usually be made out of wood, although there are a lot of compact plastic boards available. We can help you find both wooden and plastic boards if you are looking to purchase one. In recent years, many individuals have actually begun developing their own cornhole boards by creating their own graphics and logos.

cornhole game

More importantly, you will certainly see this game at pretty much every tailgate event you ever head to. It is specifically sought-after in the south where custom-made team boards and college logo designs reign. We cannot even begin to inform you how many cool various designs we have seen. You absolutely need to begin going to some prominent tailgate functions to see for yourself! Once you have you your boards and you are ready to go, begin playing! The common round will include a participant throwing four times with a 10 second rest in between; this game may be played with doubles as well. Any team that passes a tailgate toss bag through the hole will immediately be awarded points. Any bags that come down on the board are also qualified to receive points, depending upon how many bags there are and how close they are to the hole. There are going to be no points for bags that do not stay on the board. You can also look up official baggo rules to discover the conventional rules and see how some others play.

The Beauty of Cornhole Tailgate Toss

We hope you enjoyed this brief post about the widely popular game of tailgate toss. We have been going to tailgates and parties for years and have notice this game growing in popularity. The game of cornhole is a great way to have a good time with your good friends. This low-cost game can provide hours of enjoyment in almost any weather condition. Have a fun time with this great tailgate game and make sure to share the fun with all of your family and friends. If you are in need of some information on where you can purchase products, or ways to design your own, you have come to the best spot. We are buddies with a lot of developers and designers who can help you get the best board for your every need!

What Is Beer Pong

What is “beer pong”? Where does it come from? Put simply, beer pong is a drinking game played by two teams of (usually) two players each. Each team takes turns trying to land a ping-pong ball in the opposing teams cups. This makes it sound way too simple. It is a bit more complex than that. Let me explain a bit further.

what is beer pong

In a basic game of beer pong, each team stands at one end of a table, or other flat surface. This is the playing field. At each end of the table, the teams have ten cups arranged in a triangle similar to bowling pins. These cups can be filled with just about anything, but, as the name implies, they are usually filled with beer. Each team then takes turns trying to land a ping-pong ball in the opposing teams cups, called a make. When a team scores a make, the opposing team is required to consume whatever beverage is in that cup. The cup is then removed from the table. This is the most basic explanation of how the game works.

History of Beer Pong

So, where does beer pong come from? That’s not entirely clear, but it is widely believed that the game had it’s origins sometime in the 1950’s or 1960’s at Dartmouth College. The game was originally played using a regulation ping-pong table, complete with paddles. As time progressed, the paddles fell into disuse and the name beer pong was adopted. Since these early days, and its humble beginnings, the game has become a part of the campus culture of Dartmouth College. From there, it has spread nation wide, and even to other countries!

How to Properly Play Beer Pong

Okay, so now you know a bit about what beer pong is and where it came from. How is it played? It’s actually fairly simple. As stated before, each team starts with 10 cups arranged in a triangular pattern at one end of the table. The players on one team take turns trying to land the ball in one of the opposing team’s cups. This can be done with one of three different shooting styles. The first, and arguably the most common, is the bounce shot. As the name implied, this technique consists of attempting to bounce the ball off the table and into a cup. A close second to the bounce shot is the arc shot. In this one, the shooter attempts to lob the ball into the opponent’s cup using a motion similar to a free throw in basketball. The third style is the fastball, or snipe shot. Again, this one is fairly self explanatory. The shooter simply throws the ball at the target cup. The fastball is most common when the house rules state that a cup knocked over is removed from play. A good fast ball thrower can eliminate multiple cups with a good shot.

As with most party games, the rules may vary depending on where the game is being played. For instance, one game may allow the rearranging of the remaining cups after a cup is removed. This is called ‘re-racking’ and such a rule could be used to make the game a bit more challenging. If you plan on playing by house rules, though, you should make sure that everybody understands what they are before you begin. If you would like to know how we play, check out our beer pong rules page.

Get Quality Beer Pong Tables

Once again, just about any flat surface will suffice to serve as a playing field. However, for those true beer-pong enthusiasts, there are companies that market “official”, or even custom beer pong tables. There are many different types of 8ft tables with different logos and designs to satisfy everyone. We are more than happy to provide you with a list of reputable companies if you are in the market for a table.

For those real hard core players, try looking up the official rules as created by the World Series of Beer Pong. Bring this game to your next party, and liven up the house. Check out this great video of people playing pong and get yourself excited to play today!

The Champions Guide to Beer Pong

The game of beer pong is all about hanging out with friends and having a wonderful time. Nevertheless, for hero’s like yourself, another important part of the game is succeeding. As a proclamation of your vow to success, you’ve very likely bought a table of your own, but very quickly discovered, this in and of itself will not make you a champ. Listed below are the tried and true tips to adhere to, for you to release the beer pong hero inside you.

That’s right, it’s true. Perhaps even when it refers to beer pong, practice definitely makes perfect. If you undeniably want to be a winner, you’ve got to work like a champion. While this doesn’t mean passing up your regular duties and exclusively paying attention to the game, this does mean devoting a considerable amount of your time to actually playing beer pong. Fortunately for you, pong training is anything but tough. In fact, it’s one thing you can actually enjoy with a couple of your good friends right by your side.

Ways to Win at Beer Pong

A symmetry of really good offense and defense is what wins many games, and beer pong is no different. Instead of simply concentrating your efforts on your offense, make sure you are touching up your defensive skills as well. Depending on your rules, you may be able to blow on the ball while it is still spinning if you want to push it out. Additionally, some circles are even all right with using a single finger to force out the ball while it is still spinning around the lip of the cup. No matter what offensive techniques are allowed, you’ve got to be fast, so hone your skills and stay ready. Check out the great video we found on the importance of good defense!


If you definitely want to be considered an expert of the game, your trash talking capabilities have got to be on point. While many people see this strategy as extremely frustrating, there is always a technique behind the chaos. Trash talking is a wonderful way to get your opposition off focus. The less focused your competitor is, the worse their game will be, setting you up for a substantial victory. Having said that, as a bit of a disclaimer, don’t go too far. Keep your opinions and pranks light-hearted and fun; because, it is just a game.
