The Beer-Pong Rules – A short Tutorial

Preparation for tonights Cambie-Pong Tournament 

As we don’t have any ‘New Kids on the Blog’ today, I am gonna make use of the time and go through the most important beer-pong rules again. 

Once again – no pressure, but I do want us to be prepared! 

49175269351_12d4b48abb_o.jpgHowever those are just general rules and may be modified in every game. So I won’t guarantee that those will be exactly tonights rules. Some rules might be different or may not apply at all. But I am sure, we will find out tonight. But let’s start with our short Beer-Pong-Tutorial! 

1.No-one wants you to be an alcoholic 

This game is not supposed to force you to drink! The only reason I am calling it Beer-Pong Tournament is literally because, that is how the game is called. Tonight, we will be playing the game with water in our cups, therefore you decide if you want to drink or not! 

No matter what, this is the most important rule ever – YOU DON’T HAVE TO DRINK IF YOU DON’T WANT TO. In any case you are welcome to take part in the game. 

2. Reracking 

It is also referred to as simply rearranging your cups. Usually you are allowed to do that twice during a match, but this depends on the amount of cups that are involved total. So we will have to wait till tonight to actually find out. You are allowed to do that, whenever it is your term, in other words: before you are about to throw. 

Also, if you opponent requests it, the last cup may always be pulled back and centred. 

3. Bouncing 

If a ball hits the table and then goes into a cup (even by accident, blindfolded or whatever), the cup that the ball goes into is removed, as well as another cup of the defending players choice. If there are only two cups remaining, the bounce only counts as 1 cup. 

4. Fingering/ Blowing 

You may have heard the very sexist limiting term, that either one of those affects you IMG_4558.JPGaccording to your gender … I’ll give you a moment to figure out what I mean…. but since we are living in 2020, I’d say let’s loose those gender rules! 

However fingering is when the ball is spinning inside of a cup and the defending team pulls it out with his/her finger. Blowing is when the ball is spinning inside of a cup and it is blown out by the defending team. 

Very difficult rule … I know :D. 

5. Fixing Cups 

If requested the cups may be fixed at any time. Don’t mix it up with the racking. It simply means that you put the cups where they are supposed to be as they might have been shifted during the game. 

IMG_5093.JPG6. Trickshots 

This rule applies after shooting, if the ball rolls back to the shooter without hitting the floor (you may also grab it mid-air), they can shoot it again in a creative, tricky way. (For example behind the back, blindfolded, through a leg …). 

7. The Rebuttal 

After the last cup is hit, each player from the loosing team has a chance to hit the remaining cup. Each player shoots until they miss, the order is irrelevant. Once both players miss and there are remaining cups, the game is over. If the players manage to hit all remaining cups the game goes into a 3 cup overtime. 

(This rule, is pretty much played different in every single game, so please pay attention, before you get into a fight with your opponent ;)). 

8. The Elbow rule 

This rules claims, that the elbow must be behind the edge of the table. Although this rule only applies in the actual process of throwing a ball. You might think, this is very obvious, but trust me for some people it’s not :D. 

Just wait until you opponent screams “watch your eeeellllbbboooowww” with every single move you make, even if it’s just to pick up your side-drink to have a sip (when it’s not even your term) .. hypothetically I mean… 

Once again, they will be explaining the rules tonight and they might differ to the ones here, but now your knowledge is refreshed and you are ready for the big night. 

Can’t wait to see you there! 

Cheers,

PuB Night Review

What a fun (and late) night!!! I honestly wasn’t planning on having a big one but with the atmosphere of everyone enjoying theirselves it was hard to keep away from the drinks :).

I have been having many ‘firsts’ lately and I experiences what a night out at the Yale Saloon was like, and I loved it! It was too great to catch up with everyone again and talk about our week. The food went down a treat and was well needed for a big night of dancing and bull riding. It was so great that the +18 were able to join us for dinner and have a go at the line dance. It seems to be that the most wanted drink for the night was Jagerbombs, there were a few fireballs here and there but personally fireballs remind me of my second night in Canada (wasn’t a good one) hahaha.

After few more Jagerbombs and bull riding competitions we were then ready to move onto the Roxy where we enjoyed live music of some old favourite hits. While dancing I look into the distance and oh my, what did I see…… but a beautifully set up beer pong table, there is nothing more beautiful than seeing this table. It didn’t take long till we had taken over one whole half of the club with this intense beer pong game. As the night went on the live music forced us to the d-floor and the last of us danced and sung the night away. Before we knew it we were at Roxy Burgers at 2:30am reminiscing on our fun night and laughing over some burgers and fries. 

Thank-you everyone for such a great night, I LOVE YOU GUYS! I have been feeling a little homesick lately but you guys bring my mood back up and I appreciate you all ❤

PuB Night Review

Wow, wow, wow. You guys are crazy! But I love it! It was my very first PuB Night and I was definatly not expecting the turn up we had. I was lovely meeting so many new faces and it makes me love Vancouver so much more knowing I get to spend my Wednesday nights with you!

IMG_5234.jpegThis PuB-Night started off to be a bit more classy than the usual PuB-Nights are. We went to the Old Spaghetti Factory, which is a restaurant and not a PuB, but you know … sometimes we do crazy stuff and break the rules ;-D!

Spread across two full tables we enjoyed a 3 course meal; entree, main and dessert along with some sneaky cocktails to wash it all down. The service was brilliant and were always asking if we needed more drinks (which is always necessary for PuB Night XD) The drinks were surprisingly cheap as we had Long Island ice tea on special and yummy banana mamas for only $6.

There was many discussion around the table about how late we were going to party till tonight as last Wednesday was quite late.

IMG_5252.jpgTime didn’t seem an issue as the night went on and we moved to The Cambie . It’s difficult to go home when the group vibes are too good. Beer Pong is always a great way to bring the group together and have a tournament. We were clearly having too much fun as other people around the bar wanted a turn and soon became friends with strangers. It was the last game, the finale and it was INTERNeX V.s Australians, sadly, they won but they gave the winning money to INTERNeX who turned the money into …… you guessed it, FIREBALL SHOTS. We thank those random Australians for their good sports.

The Cambie wasn’t the last stop, as the night went on we moved the party to Roxy where we shared more drinks and danced the night away. Overall it was a great first PuB Night and we thank those who came along to join the fun.

It was my first PuB Night and I couldn’t have summed it up any better. I love spending time with my INTERNeX group and you all made me feel so welcomed! I will be looking forward to many more crazy nights with you!

PuB-Night Review

What a fun night – again. I know I’ve been saying this pretty much every Wednesday now, but I am honestly having such a good time with you guys. Thank you! 

Last night we went to the Beaver again, the place where it all started – at least for me. And I honesty cannot believe it’s been almost two months since then!
One of the best things about the Beaver is also the fact that our 18 year old candidates are allowed to join as well. It’s always so nice to have everyone together!IMG_4828.jpg

So as always, we started the night with a few beers and some fireballs. And yes – of course I went for the nachos again!
And what would a Wednesday night at the Beaver be without music bingo? Considering the fact that we were such a big group, I was absolutely sure the victory will be INTERNeX’. Usually the luck always sticks with the newbies, and since we’ve got three this week, my hopes were pretty high to be honest.
But for some reason the luck was not on our side this time. Nobody got a single bingo .. what a disappointment. But of course our mood didn’t get harmed by this.
So after a few hours we got our stuff together and made our way to the Cambie. Always keeping in mind, that this was the more important match to win … after what happened a few weeks back (still bothering me btw).
But as we got there, no Beerpong atmosphere was to be found! Apparently nobody in there wanted to play a Beerpong tournament at this time, at least that’s what we’ve got told. Obviously this was not a reason for us to give up or even go home.
So after a few friendly chats with the bartenders, we got some cups and balls and since we were enough people to make 4 teams, we just started our own little tournament.
And as soon as we started, so many other people joined in and it just happen to turn out just as big as the usual Beerpong nights at the Cambie.
Anyways, not trying to show off here but the girl power, once again, proofed it’s strength and won the INTERNeX Beerpong tournament. I am so proud ladies, even tho we didn’t get to win the T-Shirts! 
I really hope that someones ego recovered by now :-D.
(I am really sorry for the quality of this picture…. my camera just isn’t really the best :-D)

Anyways I had a fantastic time and a short night!
Thanks again for such a fun PuB-Night, you guys are fantastic! 

So for those of you joining the hockey game – I am very excited to see you on Sunday.
And the rest I hope to see you at next weeks PuB-Night at the 131 Water Kitchen & Bar. 

Have a lovely Thursday! 

Cheers,

PuB-Night Review

Thank you guys! This was such a fun night!

Last night we went to The Cambie Bar & Grill, to check out this well known location ourselves. Even though I haven’t been to Vancouver for that long, I’ve heard many stories about it. And to be honest, as I heard they host a beer pong tournament on Wednesdays, I knew we would have to go there.  IMG_4553.JPG

Drinks went down well and the food was delicious. Especially the free nachos were appreciated :-D. Thanks again to the neighbour table, who clearly underestimated the “monster” nachos! As we all had some time to talk about how life has been treating us so far, the real serious stuff came up – what teams to make for the beer pong tournament. After long discussions, INTERNeX sent 3 teams into the race.
As this was all about fun, we realized pretty early, that some other teams take this way more serious than others … ;-).  So the INTERNeX crew had to stand together in this tournament after all. It ended up in a European (which was us) against not-European battle. We even made it to the final!
Only then we got told, that the winning team will get free “Cambie Shirts” …. motivation was on!

Unfortunately we lost that one very fast and kinda obvious. I’ll have to admit, we didn’t stand a chance against the CRAZY team we had to face. Congratulation guys, well played.  

IMG_4560.JPGEven though INTERNeX couldn’t bring home this cup, we still enjoyed it very much. And I still made a winning experience, I had my first fireball, what an experience! To be honest – I definitely expected worse, I even liked it. 

So thank you very much guys! This has been a great night. Can’t wait to see you all again at next weeks PuB-Night at the Portside Pub. 

Cheers,
