    I was playing last night and I had an idea. Why doesn’t the WSOBP have a skills game just like in bowling or pool? You could have people put items in front of the cup and bounce the ball over, bounce off walls, or the ball will have to bounce a certain number of time before it can go in etc… I know you couldn’t getting going this year but for the future that would be something to think about. Anyway, just a thought.

    Billy if you have 2 pong shots side by side people can compete to see who can make cups the fastest. Like who can hit 10 or 20 first.

    honestly i no its not my decision and its cool either way if there is a skills thing or not but i just hope that there is just normal beer pong there and that is the reason why we are there for the 20,000

    i wasn’t trying to take away for the reason for being there but i thought it would be a fun event on the side or for the people who don’t make it to day 4.

    Oh I think skill games are a great idea- like a trick shot competition, where you just bust out whatever moves you have like a behind-the-back shot, or if you could set up some crazy bounce shot, that would qualify too…. I don’t know if you guys have seen that video on YouTube called Epic Pong Shots, if those guys show up they would have a field day. link

    Speed Pong also comes to mind, and you could do this in a number of ways, for example you could have a 6 or 10-cup rack with the bottoms cut out, so the balls pass through instead of filling up the cup, then each player has 30 seconds or so and unlimited balls, and an official counts the number of cups they hit… That would be pretty interesting.

    Then there’s accuracy and distance, like for example maybe you get 10 shots at a 6 or 10 cup rack at 6 feet, 10 shots at 8 feet, 10 shots at 12 feet, etc, and you track your accuracy there. Or to make it more skill-based, the cups could be randomly positioned on the table.

    Anyway just thinking out loud about some of the stuff we’ve been wanting to do add to the WSOBP.

    duncan, pong shot already has a built in counter for speed. You don’t need to have an official keep track for the players.

    It’s also possible to quickly compute a players shooting average, since they can stand in 1 place and toss a hundred balls w/ no fetching :D
