HOUSE RULES

We know that every college and house party plays beer pong a little bit different. Here are the general rules we'll be using for the Cupid's Cups Tournament. 

  • 10 Cups per side in a triangle formation. Each cup will be about 1/3 filled with water.  
  • Shooting: 
    • 2 players shoot per turn and alternate with the other two teammates for the next turn.  
    • If a ball goes in, that cup is removed. The goal of the game is to eliminate all of your opponents cups.  
    • If a team makes both shots in a row, they get 2 balls back and the next teammates in the rotation will shoot.
    • If a shot is bounced off the table and goes into a cup, two cups are removed.
    • Shooting Foul: If a player leans forward and their elbow is clearly over the 'foul line' that shot will not count and the shooter will forfeit their turn.  
  • Defense:
    • As soon as a ball hits a cup or the table, you are permitted to block, swat, or grab the ball.
    • You may NOT blow or use fingers to remove a ball settling into a cup 
  • Redemption: The losing team gets rebuttals - They will take turns shooting until they miss. If they are successful in removing all of their opponents cups, the game will continue into overtime with each team having one-cup. 
  • Re-Rack: A team may request one re-rack a game.
  • Time: 
    • If a pool play game is not able to be concluded due to time called, then the team with the most cups will win the game. 
    • If the teams have an equal amount of cups, it will be marked as a tie. 
    • There will be no time limits in the elimination rounds.
    • The time limits will be published and communicated prior to the event, and may be subject to change depending on how many teams we have in the field.

DRINK RESPONSIBLY

Although this is a 'beer pong' tournament, all games will be played with water filled ups. There is no requirement to drink alcohol as a penalty for a score. CLUBWAKA encourages all participants to drink responsibly and ensure you have a safe ride home.
