I love our new Mini Beer Pong game. I’m going to write in depth about this below, but really, that’s all you need to know. If you want to know why, keep reading. If you just heard the phrase “Mini Beer Pong” and thought, “I’ve gotta have that,” then you don’t have to keep reading, although you should because I enjoyed writing it. Either way, here we go…
My name is Collin. I’m just about 30 years old. I’m marrying a pretty girl soon. I’ve got friends doing the same. We’re having kids. We’re driving station wagons that we all make a point of referring to as “hatchbacks.” We’re paying attention to our blood pressure and thinking about maybe waking up a bit earlier to partake in a brisk calisthenics routine and an egg white or two before tackling the day. I’ve recently started “enjoying” a glass of room temperature water mixed with Metamucil every night before I go to bed.
What I’m trying to say is that I’m old enough to officially announce that my beer pong heyday is firmly entrenched in my rearview mirror at this point. And I’m good with that. It’s something I’ve made my peace with.
Please note, this is not a retirement. It’s simply a recognition that my life has changed, and that I’m ok with it. In fact, I wouldn’t have it any other way. But you know what? It’s ok that I had my drinking game heyday too. Those nights were filled with thousands upon thousands of red cups, magic beer that tasted better the more you drank of it, and some of the best friends anyone could ever have. This was growing up, and growing up is no worse a thing than being grown up. You could never have become who you are if you didn’t have the chance to be who you were.
Nowadays, I still play the occasional game of beer pong, and I still have a dependably good time when I do. Sure, those nights are few and far between, and for some reason I keep getting the flu on the mornings that follow them. But beer pong will always have a place in my heart, and I’m not ashamed to admit it.
And that, my friends, is why I love the handcrafted awesomeness of our Deluxe Mini Beer Pong game. It’s honestly a beautiful little piece of craftsmanship, which scratches my adult itch for nice things. But it’s also a fully functional drinking game that’s perfect for a bar top conversation starter or a casual night around the kitchen island with close friends. In other words, it’s perfect.
I love how the ball is tethered to the launcher, so there’s no chasing it all around. I love how the one-ounce plastic cups are the perfect size for drinking and not “DRINKING!!!” I love the dark richness of the American Oak that makes this the world’s most functional piece of art. I love how it lets me pay homage to a simpler time in life in a way that seamlessly combines “classy mature guy” with “fun-loving dude who drinks beer.”
Really, I just love everything about it. And you will too. So go ahead. Grab a Mini Beer Pong kit for yourself and reclaim just a little bit of your lost youth. I promise you won’t regret it.
