Eye To Eye Beer Pong Rule:
Chuggie’s House Rules – Rule #10
Whereas you could flip a coin to decides who goes first in a beer pong game, beer pong’s too rowdy for that kind of thing to go over. Besides, whoever’s doing the coin flip is probably corrupt and bribed by beer. So, I give a wholehearted thank you to whoever invented the Eye To Eye Beer Pong Rule.

How to Play the Eye to Eye Beer Pong Rule
After measuring just the right amount of beer in each cup and ensuring perfect starting cup formations, the beer pong battle has begun. Who will get that slight upper hand by going first?
Of course there are the “draw straws” or “flip a coin” methods, but come on. Basic bitch alert. This is beer pong!
To start, one player from each team shoots while maintaining eye contact with one player from the other team. The players shoot at the same time. While throwing, they must maintain constant eye contact with each other. Hence the name “Eye to Eye.”
If, during “Eyes,” a player breaks eye contact, they done fucked up. Because even if they sink a cup, it doesn’t count. Should’ve maintained eye contact, bro.
Here are the two other things that disqualify a sunk cup during the “Eye to Eye” period:
- In the event that both players hit a cup, neither of the cups count and their turn is over.
- If the balls collide in the air, these two players are shit out of luck. Their turn has ended.
If one of these things happens, their partners sub in as the new “eye to eye” players.
Now, if the subs both fail to make a qualifying hit cup, it switches back to the original two players.
This continues in sudden death fashion until one team hits a cup and their opponent misses.
A Single Variation to the Eye To Eye Beer Pong Rule
There’s just one variation I’m aware of for the Eye to Eye Beer Pong Rule. It states that if both players hit a cup or the balls collide in midair, they get a do-over. Hooray! They’re not disqualified just yet. They get to try again, and only if they both miss do their partners take over.
Chuggie’s Official Stance
According to Chuggie’s Official Beer Pong House Rules, this variation is unacceptable. No second tries. Sorry, Charlie. Keep it moving along.
For being The FUN Company, we might sound like hardasses. But we find enforcing rules like the “Eye To Eye Beer Pong Rule” to be the most fun. It adds an element of suspense because there’s a lot more at stake.
Beer Pong “Eyes” Hit Cup Rule
What happens after you’ve determined which team will go first?
Nothing, really. You don’t remove any cups hit throughout “Eyes” before the game starts. This includes the last hit cup that decided who gets first possession. It remains on the table.
Remember, the Eye To Eye Beer Pong Rule’s only purpose is to decide who starts. (And maybe to cause some creepily intense eye contact with that one guy you had a one night stand with a few months ago.)
Who starts first when it isn’t the first game of the night?
Good question. If it’s not the first beer pong game of the night, the team “running the table” automatically gets to start first. (“Running the table” simply refers to the winner of the previous game.) However, if the winning team leaves the table or new teams are formed, then the “Eyes” decide which team starts first.
And there you have it, the Eye to Eye Beer Pong Rule! Want to round things out with a kickass beer pong shirt, or beer pong tips and strategies?

So here’s a little personal info – I love to shop. Too much, in fact. In the past, I’ve gone on sprees and spent way too much money on clothes than I probably should have, but c’est la vie. We all have our guilty pleasures. Now I’m using this Eye To Eye Beer Pong Rule article as an excuse to at least do some window shopping.
Whatever you wear, it’s hella fun to get into the spirit of partying. BUT when you can tailor it to a specific beer pong rule, it gets even better. For example, you can bring a blue troll wig to your next beer pong party and make the troll wear it for the rest of the night. Or, dress up as a sexy sniper if you love crushing your opponents with the Beer Pong Sniper Rule.
Here are my favorite pieces of bargain beer pong apparel:
- American Flag Beer Pong Boxers
- Obligatory Dirty Joke Shirt
- Sexy Beer Pong Thong
- Beer Pong Cat Tank
- BEAR Playing Beer Pong Hat
- American Flag Beer Pong Hoodie
- Beer Pong Sweatpants
If you’re really liking the Beer Pong Sniper Rule, dress up like one. Encourage your friends to dress up in beer pong-themed costumes and see what happens! You’re never to old for a costume party, by the way.
