What is beer pong vs. beirut?
At some schools, beer pong is a game played with paddles, and the object of the game is to use the paddles to knock a ping pong ball into your opponent’s cup. Beirut probably evolved from this sense of beer pong, and it is the term that definitively describes the game in which the players attempt to throw a ping pong ball into an opponent’s cup. At many locations, however, beer pong and Beirut are synonymous, as it is on this site. Wherever you see beer pong (or pong for short) throughout bpong.com, we are most often referring to the game in which the players actually throw the ball.
Why do you allow leaning at the MOBP™?
This has always been heavily debated, and we’ve spent hundreds (literally) of hours trying to get the best rules possible. So, here’s the short version. The main problem with leaning is fairness, dispute minimization, and enforcement.
First, how do you enforce that when you have 50 tables running (we can’t have 50 refs out there)? People have to enforce it themselves. In EVERY tournament I’ve seen with an elbow rule, people are always bitching, “You’re elbow crossed the table.” Now, some people are right, some are wrong, some are trying to get in the opponent’s head. In any of those situations, (and especially when big money is on the line) people’s tempers can flare. Verbal confrontations can escalate and lead to physical confrontations, and with 500+ people in the venue, we can’t have this shit. Thus, we wanted to minimize disputes (and then there aren’t enforcement problems).
Then we come to fairness: with big money on the line, we have to be fair, and we’ve got to get it right. Determining whether a person’s elbow crossed the line is semi-subjective. What if it’s the championship game and maybe that guy’s/girl’s elbow crossed the table? We make the wrong call, I cost a team $50,000 (or more). I don’t want that.
That’s the short explanation. Here’s a final thought: we’re always open to changing things up, but we’ve spent a lot of time considering this point and taken a shitload of input from other people. Most (especially those that have seen our events) are in agreement that we’ve made the right call. Now, if some 7’9″ mother fucker shows up and starts running tables, we’ll reconsider stuff (or maybe just cut off his arms).
I heard you guys play beer pong with water. Is that true?
Sort of. The World Series of Beer Pong, held annually in Las Vegas, does in fact use beer in the front 6 cups of the beer pong rack. However, there are a number of places in the US where playing beer pong with beer is not allowed in bars. Therefore, you will often see beer pong played with water in local tournaments. We’ve found that this version of the game is just as fun as playing with beer in the cups..
What is a Masters of Beer Pong™ Tournament Satellite?
This is a tournament held at a local bar or venue where the winning team will receive a free paid entrance into The Masters of Beer Pong.
How do I run a Masters of Beer Pong Satellite Tournament?

I love what you guys are doing, and would love to become a sponsor. Is that possible?

One or both of my parents would like to play beer pong with me. Is that cool?
Absolutely. Family pong tournaments and family pong nights can be some of the best. You certainly get to see who was born with skill and who had to learn the game.
I’m not very good at beer pong. Should I play in a beer pong tournament anyway?
Absolutely. While beer pong tournaments can be highly competitive, they are also a lot of fun. They’re a great way to hang out, meet new people, and talk a little trash to someone you’ve never met.
