The party game. They have to be simple to explain (as you don’t want to be spending an hour just trying to set the thing up and let people know how they work), easy to play (since you don’t want someone feeling they have to sit out because they’re not a master in some knowledge or tactical set), and, of course, be very fun. Many of them are of the “play cards to a judge” form used by games like Apples to Apples and Cards Against Humanity. Others are a bit more dexterity-based, such as (Beverage)pong (my personal favorite beverage being Code Red). Icons of Awesomeball is like that second style.
The game is a mix of (beverage)pong with a card game and a dice game. You have the 22oz cup that you have to toss the ping pong ball (supplied) into. But there is a set of cards that will modify how you have to make the throw. For certain situations, a die will be employed for the use of acquiring points. First player to 30 points wins.
And there’s the trash-talking. It is highly recommended that you trash talk and try and distract your opponent in whatever means necessary (except for touching the table, cup, or shooter). Anything else is fair game (think Baseketball).
The campaign just got underway and is set to go for another 29 days.
