On Friday, the world was introduced to “alcohockey.” Move over, beer pong, there is a new sheriff in town. Here are 10 reasons why alcohockey dominates beer pong, and why it should become America’s newest drinking game.
- You don’t have to chase rogue ping pong balls around. An air hockey puck is much easier to keep track of.
- There’s no need for a water cup, since it’s rare that the puck will leave the table.
- Alcohockey can be played in all kinds of weather. There’s no need to worry about windy conditions.
- As you booze, coordination goes right out the window. Don’t worry about aiming here. Grip it and rip it.
- Since there’s not much coordination needed, you can play deeper into your buzz than with beer pong.
- A crushed ping pong ball will ruin a game of beer pong. Crushing an air hockey puck is much more difficult.
- The rules are more straightforward. Look at the setup – there’s no room for blowing, bouncing, etc. House rules suck.
- Less spillage. Don’t worry about cups falling on your carpet; they’re set inside the table.
- Alcohockey is faster paced. Beer pong grinds to a halt when people can’t make shots. There’s no buzzkill here.
- It’s f***ing air hockey. Who doesn’t love air hockey?
**Bonus** The name is better. There’s no beer pong/Beirut debate going on here. Alochol+hockey = Alcohockey. It’s the perfect name.
