I’ve said in the past how Beer Pong isn’t really Beer Pong if there’s not beer in the cups. I don’t even know how to process this latest development, an arcade machine – think Skee Ball or Super Shot Basketball – called Beer Pong Master.
If you’ve ever played this frat favorite, you know the game’s all about throwing ping-pong balls into red Solo cups with as much accuracy as possible. Beer Pong Master puts a high-tech spin on this by adding lights, sensors and a 22″ HD display that keeps track of your progress.
No splashes, no cleavagy distractions, and no beer. Where’s the fun in that?!
A look at the machine’s manufacturer Bay Tek Games shows that this is not some half-assed attempt to capitalize on the growing popularity of this “sport.” They make all sorts of real-deal Chuck E Cheese-type fun machines.
But you won’t be seeing this puppy Where a Kid Can Be a Kid ™ – Beer Pong Master is part of Bay Tek’s “Bar Pieces” collection, so it’s not likely that it’ll be turning little brothers into little brah’s anytime soon.
No word on if they’re working on a Wet T-Shirt Water Cannon game, but I imagine such a machine would be a hit in South Florida this time of year.
Below is a video of the machine in action. It kills me to say that it kind of looks fun.
