Rules - Satellite Money Cups


When playing with the basic rules for beirut (beer pong) the shooting team has no control over which defender consumes the beverage contained within cups they hit. Satellite money cups give the shooting team an opportunity to force a specific defender to consume beverage.

Satellite Money Cups

Show Me The Money

Money cup is beirut (beer pong) slang for a cup that is completely filled with beverage. Forcing an opposing player to consume the beverage contained in a money cup can impair their ability to shoot, giving a shooting team a method to practice the "best defense is a strong offense" maxim of sports.

My Dog Ate My Cup Assignment

Cup assignment, is part of what makes satellite money cups so interesting. Normally, in beirut (beer pong), teams are permitted to choose which player on their team will consume beverage arbitrarily. With satellite money cups, this is not the case. Each satellite money cup is assigned to an individual player at the beginning of the game, and cannot be reassigned. When a satellite cup is hit, the player that it is assigned to must consume the beverage contained within it.

Run The Option

Another part of what makes satellite money cups so interesting is that they are optional cups. All other cups must be hit as a condition for victory, but satellite money cups are exempt. A team does not even have to attempt shots at the satellite cups if they choose.

Grudge Matches

These variations make satellite money cups ideal for grudge matches and some other situations, including:

  • If a team has a big lead on their opponents, they might want to rub it in by shooting at the satellite cups.
  • If a team is getting blown out, the satellite money cups give them an opportunity to stick it to their opponents before they get shot off the table.
  • Since the cups are assigned to individual players, a player might want to send a personal message to an opposing player by hitting their assigned satellite money cup.
