Some games are just more fun than others. There is no denying that watching a football game is a lot more exciting than watching 18 holes of golf. Sorry, it’s just a rule in the universe that you have to deal with. These universal rules stretch to the backyard games that made up most of our college lives and for those of us still having fun, make our weekends even more fun. Polish Horseshoes is more fun than Ladder Golf. KanJam is more fun than Bags or Cornhole (yeah, we know that will make some of you mad but the truth hurts). Washers is more fun than Dizzy Bat (but watching people play Dizzy Bat cannot be beat). Power Hour is more fun than… nothing. Power Hour is just a terrible idea. What is the one game that trumps them all? The one game that (cough) shows off true athletic talent (cough)? Beer Pong.
Some of us have tried to make a beer pong table out of anything. Usually it is an old ping pong table that is slowly falling apart but does just well enough to get the job done. Others have spent $150 for a fold up one that usually doesn’t even stretch the full distance a table should. Then there are the ultimate desperados that turn a kitchen table into pong table which really just makes us sad. If you’re tired of having a table that is stuck in the minor leagues, we’ve found the solution to bring you up to the majors. The company is called BZ Custom Tables and they are creating some of the most awesome tables we’ve ever seen.
They begin by making the legs of the table able to fold up which means you can actually get this table mobile. Next, in order to prevent any issues with spilling, BZ has made the tops of their tables covered in Plexiglass to prevent any possible spilling. But why would anybody have concerns about spilling some liquid on a pong table? Well, when you cut out some of the most awesome designs and combine that with an LED backdrop that lights up the room, you realize the need for the Plexiglass. Which leads us to the best part: the customized designs of the table that are lit up with LEDs to make this board one of a kind.
The LED lighting is programmable and has more lighting options than we’ve still been able to figure out with our free demo that BZ put together for us. You can do certain shades of certain colors and have them gradually fade into one another. You can also choose to have the lights pulse which will turn any garage into a dance party (trust me, we’ve proven this). The triangles are also lit up to make throwing that much better. We recommend finding some clear solo cups to really show off the design of the table as we realized that having solid lights that blocked the light held the awesomeness of the table back.
Do any design that your mind can think of and these guys will make them come to life. They’re a couple of young entrepreneurs and great guys that we’ve had the chance to meet in person. If you’re already looking at tables that are $150 – $200 and have nothing unique about them, we really recommend considering one of these tables. The people I’ve shown this table have said (after wiping the drool away from their mouth), “This was $400? They should have charged more”. Support a new company, support some hard working dudes, and get the most awesome beer pong table you’ve ever seen.
