One of my favorite things about tailgating, besides drinking and eating, is playing games. And so I’m always on the lookout for new tailgating games or just as good, ways to make old tailgating games better/fresher. So when I found the spinning beer pong rack I knew I was on to something.
This really is one of those inventions that you wish you had gotten off your lazy ass and done. All it is is a typical 10 cup pyramid that is mounted on a platform and a small little motor rotates it. Needless to say, this adds a whole new dimension to the game. It uses the same old plastic Solo cups and can be used on or off. It has a low profile so you really don’t notice that much of a difference (especially important if you use the gay bounce rules). The Spin Pong racks also use two AA batteries, so don’t forget to pick those up.
Now if you are looking to turn up the notch on your daily beer pong matches, you will want to pick up two to keep the playing field equal. However, at our parties we use the Spin Pong on the challenger’s side so that the winners have an increased challenge at keeping the title game after game. You’d be surprised how difficult it can be at first as you get used to the speed of the spin (TIP: aim for the center one first, it doesn’t rotate.) but it doesn’t take too long to get into the rhythm if you’ve got any sort of beer pong game.
