This game takes the classic game of Beer Pong and adds class based RPG elements. It’s a team game that works in teams of 2 so each game will consist of 4 players. You set up a beer pong game as normal and then pick from one of the 5 classes to help give your team a much needed boost. Each class comes with it’s own abilities and if you level up by sinking cups you can unlock even better abilities. It’s the perfect solution for anyone who’s a fan of drinking and class-based action.
How To Play
The set up for this game is slightly different than traditional beer pong. Instead of setting up a triangle you set up 3 rows of 5 cups each on each end of the table. Then each team takes a side and puts some of their tasty beverages in their cup.
The point of the game is to sink your ping pong ball in all of the opponents cups, causing them to drink them all so that you win the game. But unlike regular beer pong each “class” chosen has special abilities to either defend your cups or sink more of your opponents.
Picking Your Class
The main benefit of classes are their abilities. Classes don’t start with any abilities but then gain them through sinking cups.
- Lvl 1 – 1 Cup Sank
- Lvl 2 – 3 Cups Sank
- Lvl 3 – 5 Cups Sank
The undead dark-ale-magician uses spells and other dark magic to strike fear into the souls and cups of the opponents.
- Lvl 1 Ability – Dark Illusion. Once per round if you or an enemy sinks a cup you can choose a different cup to be removed instead.
- Lvl 2 Ability – Blacked-Out. This trap allows you to place an empty cup among your cups once a game. If the opponent sinks this cup they must make their next shot with their eyes closed.
- Lvl 3 Ability – Beersurrection. Once per turn when you sink a cup instead of the opponent drinking it you instead place it on your side as an additional cup.
The Wasted Wizard
This wobbly warlock uses magic to mess with the opponents game.
- Lvl 1 Ability – Geomancy. Once per turn you can move around any two cups on your side of the field.
- Lvl 2 Ability – Power Drain. Once per turn whenever you sink a cup you can make an opponent unable to use their class powers next turn.
- Lvl 3 Ability – Beercane Explosion. Once per turn your bounce shots now remove an extra cup.
The noble Pale-Ale-Adin stacks empty cups to create a barrier wall to deflect oncoming balls. They can even hinder their opponents by forcing players to shoot on their knees or blocking shots.
- Lvl 1 Ability – Beericade. Once a turn you can use empty cups to set up a 3 cup barricade to try and block oncoming balls.
- Lvl 2 Ability – Penitence. Once a turn if you sink a cup you can choose an opponent to shoot from their knees next turn.
- Lvl 3 Ability – Alco-Holy Guard. Whenever an opponent sinks a cup you’re given a chance to sink one of theirs. If you succeed both shots are negated.
The Chuggernaut (nice!)
The awesomely named Chuggernaut is a brute force drunkard who wins through brute forcing their opponent. This is the class you want to be if you are confident in your mad pong skillz.
- Lvl 1 Ability – Bastard’s Arrogance. Each turn before you shoot you can call up which call you’re going to sink. If you get it the opponents drink a second cup as well.
- Lvl 2 Ability – Dual Weilding. Throw two balls at the same time with both hands or two with the same hand.
- Lvl 3 Ability – Cleave. Up to twice per turn, if you sink a ball in the opponents cup you get that ball back to shoot again.
The sneaky Brogue uses their swiftness and totally dudelike tricks to win the game.
- Lvl 1 Ability – Breaking In and Entering. Once a turn you can rearrange two cups on the opposing teams side.
- Lvl 2 Ability – Sneak Attack. Once per turn you can yell your secret sneak attack word to shoot during your opponents turn. They can block this shot.
- Lvl 3 Ability – Set Trap. This allows you to place an empty cup inside one of your full cups. If this cup is sank it’s removed but the one underneath it remains safe.
Dungeons and Drunkards Review
I never knew how much I wanted a class-based RPG style beer pong until I played it. It’s an awesome and fresh way to play beer pong. All around great idea for any nerdy beer enthusiast.
Never really noticed any balance issues or OP classes, but being drunk kind of fuzzes the lines of what’s fair or not. All we know is that we had a great time. Ended up playing most of the night and never really got tired of it. Plus with big updates on the horizon you can always look forward to more awesome content.

All in all dungeons and drunkards is a great game. The official website has a very nicely illustrated booklet to remember the rules and classes, we’d suggest printing that out because it can be pretty easy to forget a rule or two among all the drinking.
