Admit it: after a few games of beer pong, things get boring. And yet you probably keep playing because 1) beer and 2) you're an animal and don't know when to stop. But luckily, there's a new way to make the timeless frat house sport exciting again -- besides playing with IPAs, now that you're older and classier. It's called The Beeramid and it's literally a game changer.
Here's how it works: Instead of creating two standard triangular cup arrangements on a table surface, a Beeramid set lets you build two pyramid-like structures with three separate tiers of cups -- six on the bottom, three in the middle, and one on the top. As explained on the product's Kickstarter campaign page, each of your cups is "independently stabilized" on its own removable pedestal that even features a lip to prevent the cup from falling. You can add, remove, and arrange the cups pedestals and cups however you like, which could result in crazy backboard and bounce shots, according to Beeramid creator Adrian Cox.
"People say it's a good mix of change, while still keeping the core concepts of beer pong," Cox said via email. "You can still bounce, re-rack and make your own house rules. If I had to put a number on it, I would say it has a 85% approval rating and that's not just with friends. We have been taking The Beeramid to bars in San Francisco to see how they like it. The other 15% are beer pong purists and people that don't enjoy drinking games."
