Bing Bong Portable Beer Pong Table Review

Bing Bong Beer Pong TableWe got our Bing Bong table last week, and we couldn't wait to test it out. We hadn't played beer pong in a while, but as soon as we reviewed the Bombed game we were hooked again. We checked out the Bing Bong table on a few criteria, including portability, durability and playability.

Portability: Thumbs up on this one. We like the fact that the Bing Bong table lives up to its claim of being "portable," folding up to about the size of a suitcase, 2'X2', and weighing in at 20 pounds. We actually walked about a mile carrying the thing, and while we had to switch hands a few times, that's mostly because the heaviest thing we've lifted recently weighed 12 ounces. We wouldn't want to take it backpacking, but it's the perfect size and weight to toss into the car.

Durability: We didn't exactly have Inspector 12 banging this thing around, but it seems sturdy and we didn't have any worries about the table collapsing as we played, no matter how rowdy things got.

Playability: We've read one complaint about the Bing Bong table that it was too short to play effectively. We call that hogwash. Standing at 21", this table is a few inches shorter than the ping pong table in the Liquor Snob offices. We had a lot of fun playing with this table, both with the typical Beirut rules, as well as with the Northeast regional bouncing rules. The only place it falls short (literally) is in length - the Bing Bong table is only 8' long where a ping pong table measures 9'. But honestly...would you rather show up at a party with a beer pong table that's a foot short, or with no beer pong table at all?

Cool Factor: As we mentioned when we first got our table, this thing is just damned cool. As soon as we unwrapped it, everyone in the office was clamoring to see it set up and itching to play immediately. Just imagine next time you're at a party and you're the guy who brought the Bing Bong table. Instant superstar anyone?

All in all, we think the Bing Bong table is bad ass. Plus, we talked to a man on the street (when we were doing our portability test), who lived with five other guys in a college apartment. He said they wouldn't mind paying $150 to have a beer pong table of their own, especially since they could split it, and mentioned it seemed like a better idea than their current table, which is a door they knocked down in their apartment. There you go...100% of the people we interviewed say Bing Bong tables are great!

It never ceases to amaze me just how many "column inches" bloggers have given to the phenomenon of beer pong. What exactly is so fascinating about this idiotic drinking game?
