How to play the game Pong-cano

How to play the game Pong-cano

Bouncing a ball into a bucket is a ridiculously-simple goal. Add in a few tokens and some dice and you've got a whole different level of play. This simple spin on the classic game is fast, easy and full of fun. The whole game hinges on the luck of the dice so we often use it in our St. Patrick's Party.

Supplies:

  • 1 bucket or bowl
  • 1 ping pong ball for every player
  • 10 tokens for each player
  • 1 die for every player

Objective:

  • To be the last player with tokens

Rules:

  • Balls must bounce at least once before going in the bucket
  • Balls that bounce out of the bucket don't count as a score
  • If a 3 is rolled, a bounce-off occurs

Play:

Roll one die to determine the starting player. The highest roll begins by rolling a die. The number showing on the die is the number of tokens at risk. The player then takes a shot, bouncing the ball at least once, to get their ball into the bucket. If the ball goes in, the tokens stay in the player's pile. If the player misses, the tokens go into the bucket 'volcano'.

If a 3 is rolled, the player must select an opponent for a bounce-off. The first player can shoot from any location. If the player misses, they must immediately give three tokens to the challenger. If the ball goes in, the challenger must shoot from the same spot. If they miss, they must give three tokens to the other player. If the ball challenger's ball goes in, they win all the gold in the bucket. Play continues until all the gold is held by one player.
