World Series Of Beer Pong To Trade Booze For Water

November 21, 2013 at 5:28 PM | by | Comments (7)

The World Series of Beer Pong will bounce (sorry) back into Las Vegas January 1-5 trading Hard Rock for the Flamingo this time around.

Some 1,000 players from more than a dozen countries are expected to compete for $50k in cash prizes. If you want to be one of them, you have until December 10 to register. But, a big buzz kill may be a move by the WSOBP to switch brews for H2O:

Relive Your Collegiate Glory This Summer In Vegas

While all other subjects are up for debate, we know one thing's for sure: college taught us how to play beer pong, and it taught us really well. This July, Vegas wants to help us prove it.

The "Masters of Beer Pong Tournament" (name needs work) is coming to the Hard Rock July 1-3 with a prize purse of up to $250,000 and players are expected from 48 states and a dozen countries. Ahem, aren't you glad you got all that practice back in the day?

You can read all about the specific rules here (our favorite is the "Dipshit Not Paying Attention Rule") and, apparently, you don't have to play with beer. We'd certainly recommend it, though, for the sake of everyone's entertainment. If we remember our collegiate days correctly, half the battle was staying sober enough to see the cups, and the drinking was more for the spectators than the competitors. Seriously, who wants to watch a bunch of sober people stand around and shoot balls into solo cups? Not us... so fill'er up!

Where To Beer Pong Now That Bill's Has Packed Up Its Cups

February 5, 2013 at 7:31 PM | by | Comments (0)

Beer pong at O'Shea's. Gone, but not forgotten.

Not everyone is worthy enough to take home a big check for beer money which leaves the rest of us practicing the art of small ball until the next World Series of Beer Pong. For many, that equates to retreating to the sticky confines of a frat-stanked basement. But, unless you're a rebel, that means finding above-ground practice grounds in Las Vegas.

The ultimate beer ponging stomping grounds, of course, used to be O'Sheas until it closed up shop and shipped their tables over to Bill's. But, now that Bill's is no more where's a guy (or gal) to go when they need to unwind and sink the ball in the cup?

Chaos. Balls. Beer.

January 8, 2013 at 3:06 PM | by | Comments (0)

We're always curious to experience new things in Las Vegas. Even though the†World Series of Beer Pong (WSOBP) has been around for almost 10 years we needed to see what it was all about in person. The WSOBP was exactly what anyone would imagine,†times 10.

The WSOBP is held in a ballroom that you probably never realized existed, far away on the second floor of the Flamingo. On the first day of WSOBP, there were about 100 tables set up. The action was chaotic with that many games going on at once. The loud up-tempo mix of rock, pop and hip-hop only made things feel as if they were moving faster. People were dancing, taunting, jumping around, drinking and having a great time.

Imagine the old beer pong area at O'Sheas, but 10 times larger. This was a bro event. There were bro's dressed like it was Sunday afternoon and there were bro's in uniforms and then there were two awful performing bro's in bath robes that probably used WSOBP as an excuse to visit Las Vegas (and who could blame them).

Show Off Your Beer Pong Skills, Win $50K

December 5, 2012 at 12:04 PM | by | Comment (1)

Two guys and ten cups with a $50,000 dream.

Another year nears closure which means many sports enthusiasts have another year of beer pong practice under the beer belts. The 8th annual World Series of Beer Pong returns to the Flamingo January 1-5 to hand out $70,000 in suds soaked prize money.

The best ponger from a field of teams expected to exceed 500 will take home $50,000 while those with more creative tastes can take aim at other prize money, including $5,000 in costume prizes. It should be noted that the WSOBP doesn't discriminate against non-beer drinkers. Official WSOBP rules - yes, rules - allow for cups to be filled with beer, water, or any liquid. Water? Beer drinking athletes of the world, please don't let us down.

Throwdown Some Beer Pong Downtown

Where: 129 E. Fremont St. [map], 89101

Beer Pong may be down with the closure of O'Shea's, but it's not out. Those particular tables have shacked up at Bill's and cups can be setup elsewhere, too, but mostly around the Strip. So, where's a beer pong pundit to go downtown?

Our prediction had been for The D to add some beer pong against their backdrop of dancing dealers. But, competitive beer drinkers can, instead, sink it at Golden Nugget.

Where To Find O'Sheas Now That O'Sheas Is Closed

May 1, 2012 at 6:00 PM | by | Comments (10)

O'Sheas is no more.

The long-running casino closed its doors at noon Monday, April 30 to make way for The LINQ with promises to return again, some day. Until it does, many Vegas visitors are wondering where they can find cheap games, cheaper booze and, most of all, beer pong now. While these places can't replace O'Sheas, they just may hold you over until its return:

Cheap Table Games:

Blackjack
Hooters, El Cortez, Bill's: $3 minimum
Luxor, Excalibur, New York-New York, Casino Royale, Plaza: $5 minimum

April 25, 2012 at 1:35 PM | by | Comments (3)

Letís paint a scenario. Youíre in Las Vegas. Youíve done all of the obvious touristy things, but you want to know something not-so-obvious to do. Something fun and different.

We hope you enjoy it and find something new to check out the next time you are in town.

We are almost halfway through our One Fun Thing series.

Beer Pong May Be Down, But It's Not Out

March 20, 2012 at 11:54 AM | by | Comments (5)

Time for another VegasChatter Question! This time, it's a VegasChatter Question and VegasChatter Flashback all rolled into one. It's gettin' crazy up in here! Do you have a question about Vegas? Send it to us and if we deem it clean enough, we'll post it here on VegasChatter!

Beer pong is a cherished tradition for many Vegas visitors. There's even a World Series that pits the best against the rest. Meantime, some virgins have gotten lost over it. So, it's understandable when VegasChatter Facebook fan Eric Solomon read of O'Shea's last St. Patrick's Day hurrah before it closes forever April 30, he worried about where he would play beer pong during his July visit. A very valid concern so that the next four months of practice aren't wasted. Although, many would argue getting wasted practicing isn't a waste. But, we digress.

Will A Million Bucks Get You To The Riviera On Time?

Where: 2901 Las Vegas Blvd., South [map], 89109
February 22, 2012 at 4:32 PM | by | Comments (2)

Best use of the pick and roll ever.

A million bucks must be the magic number to grab the attention of Vegas gamblers, players, and sports fanatics these days. Yesterday we highlighted a million dollar money shot and a million dollar bonus win at Three Card Poker. Now, the Riviera is going mad this March with a million dollar contest of their own.

The March $1,000,000 Tournament Challenge will pair college basketball fanatics with college party fanatics. The challenge features 100% payback of up to a thousand entries at $1,000 a pop. For those whose mathematical brain cells are more long gone than their college days, one thousand entries times a thousand bucks calculators out to a million dollars.

This Vegas Virgin's Friend Went Missing

August 10, 2011 at 1:34 PM | by | Comments (0)

We told you about our first time...visiting Vegas, that is. And, some of you have told us about yours. Now it's time for another VegasChatter member, DenverGambler, to tell you about busting his Vegas cherry.

This Vegas Virgin story is going to sort of break the rules. Iím going to tell you about my second trip to Las Vegas. Why? Because my first time in Vegas I was 20. Not old enough to gamble, to drink, or to do much of anything. We took a road trip from Denver to Las Vegas to see a concert. While there I fell in love with the town and I knew I would have to be back when I was 21. Fast forward one year and I was four months into my 21st year. Why did it take that long? When youíre the first friend to turn 21, you have to wait for others to turn 21 before you can do Vegas. Once we had a group of three, off we went.

New Game Alert: 3 Dice Football

Where: 3555 Las Vegas Blvd S [map], 89109
March 30, 2011 at 2:31 PM | by | Comments (5)

We've said it before we love craps and we're a bit protective of our baby. Last week we saw that O'Sheas debuted a new dice game that looks very similar to craps called 3 dice football. How dare anyone try to infringe on our favorite game in the casino?

The concept seems as if it will be fun as the game is a combination of football and craps. It's no secret that we like to drink when we gamble and while we can follow craps it took about an hour to figure out what was going on.

At first glance 3 Dice Football is going to be way too complicated for us. The 3 dice make us do way too much math by making us both add AND subtract to find out the results of our bets. Here are the quick rules from the game's creator TCS John Huxley:

The primary objective of 3 Dice Football is to score a Touchdown.

The game begins on the offensive 20 yard line. There are only 3 downs in 3 Dice Football, with a first down possible at the 10 yard line. The outcome of each down is determined by rolling 3 Dice delivering 4 possible outcomes:
- Yards Gained : Total of green dice minus red die
- Penalty : Total of green dice is lower than red die
- Trips TD : Instant Touchdown with any triple
- Turnover : Red 6 rolled with Green 1-1 or 1-2
