Beer pong is an all round popular pick for almost any party and it’s no wonder people want to mix things up and evolve their typical beer pong game, and so the Basketpong drinking game was formed.
Gone is the horizontal flat board and its been turned up vertically, with the essence of traditional basketball and the integrity of the much-loved beer pong game.
This is a hybrid beer pong + basketball drinking game, and here we’ll show you the best portable Basketpong set out there and all the benefits of enhancing your usual beer drinking game!
What Exactly Is BasketPong?
Basketpong is a mix between two popular games, basketball and beer pong.
With the beer pong board now vertical there are 6 rims per board to attach the cups, and all you need to do is fill the cups with beer and off you go.
The aim of the game is to land the ball in any of the cups and make your opponent chug the beer from the cup you’ve just hit. The game is designed for 1 on 1 competition or teams of 2 and is an ideal, convenient drinking game for any party.
Just remember when looking for a great Basketpong set to search for something portable, after all, who wants to be carrying a great big board to and from parties. Also look for something that is versatile, can the height be adjusted?
And finally, consider the installation, having a great game that takes forever to construct kind of sucks the fun out of the game.
Xtreme Pong has crafted a great drinking game with their BasketPong boards so you can have the best time and endless fun with friends.
This new and improved drinking game comes in highly portable packaging ensuring you can easily transport it from one place to another in a simple carry case.
This set comes with 3 different playing styles which is one of the reasons this game is great value for money.
Xtreme Pong BasketPong set also comes with backboards, base, rims and posts made from durable, high-density polyethylene and is easily set up in less than 2 minutes.
This game is great if you want to be the life of the party and bring something new and exciting to the table.
