Quick Note on Official Rules

Official rules? Who are we kidding? We will set a suggested height for the board and distance for the throw line/ oche.  We will also list some of the basics for game play.  However, as we all know, with a game like this, house rules rule. Please enjoy our little modification of beer pong and feel free to make it your own.  We would love to hear any variations of how you are playing Oche Pong.

Re-Racks (Optional)

Repositioning the cups is generally permitted once or twice during game play. Re-racks or the number of re-racks should be stated before game play.  If you are looking for an official number to satisfy some spirited conversation then let's say one.

End Game/ Overtime (Optional)

Once a team eliminates all cups on their board, the opposing team has one last opportunity to send the game into overtime.  The opposing team is given the chance to throw until they miss without any limits to the number of throws. The game is over if any shot misses. If the team has not used all their re-racks, they can do so once before end game starts. If said team also eliminates all cups on their board, the game goes into overtime.  Overtime consists of 3 cups put back into game play anywhere on the board they chose and normal game play resumes.

One final note, please enjoy the game responsibly!
