The patent-pending protective barriers fit right onto your typical party cups and even feature a "catch element" that keeps the ball from bouncing out (and potentially falling on the floor again), which is a goddam game changer. So far, the guys behind the invention have raised over $13,000 (at publish time) toward their $70,000 Kickstarter campaign goal, and said backers will score a 20-pack of Slip Cups when they're ready later this summer for all kinds of "clean" beer pong gaming. Who knew beer pong and good hygiene could go so well together?
Let the clean games begin.
