Family Friendly Beer Pong Game Developed by Middletown Man

By Anastasia Millicker

MIDDLETOWN – Township resident Kevin Brown is trying to change the image of the game beer pong with his portable, family-friendly Point Pong game.

When his daughter and son-in-law bought Brown an inflatable beer pong table for the pool, it came with a repair kit. Brown knew then that the floating table would be a flop.

So Brown, owner of KB Innovations Inc., decided to design his own pool Point Pong table.

Kevin Brown of Middletown tailgating with his invention Point Pong.

Using a PVC pipe as a stand and a triangular cutout, Brown, 59, went to work building five or six prototypes before finalizing his design.

The complete kit comes in an 11-pound bag with the parts to construct two triangular tables with holders for 10 cups on the main board and four additional cups holders off the board.

The bag also includes an 8-foot string that connects the two boards. The product was designed for indoor, outdoor and pool usage.

Brown said the design for Point Pong was not difficult but getting it manufactured was as difficult as getting the last shot in a pong game.

Brown said he went to local hardware stores and manufacturing companies looking for materials and companies to reproduce his design. When his efforts proved futile, he decided to go overseas.

“I went to China,” Brown said. “I had a connection over there and in the first to second week, we looked at local manufacturers and factories and in the third week, we leveled it down to the last two factories. I picked the one I did because of the factory’s timeliness and quality.”

Point Pong, which retails for about $149, is now found not only in local stores, including Add-On Pools on Route 35, but also nationally on sears.com, the Point Pong website at pointpong.com, and MembersDepot.com, Brown said.

Point Pong has been around since November and has sold 275 units from its website. Brown is unsure how many units retailers have sold.

Brown’s target audience is not just college students but also families that can play using a point system.

Two to four players, using any type of beverage, create two teams. One player stands behind their table and aims a ping-pong ball at the other team’s red cups. To determine who goes first, players have a shoot-out, tossing the ping-pong balls toward the cups until one player makes it in. That team goes first.
Players take turns until they land a ball into a cup. When a ball lands in a cup, the cup is then removed and placed in a side cup-holder. Based on the color of the ring around the cup, the player looks to score 15 points to win the game.

Players can also play the traditional way, without the point system, removing cups as balls land in them. The team that lands a ball in all their opponents’ cups wins.

Brown said Point Pong’s unique design sets it apart from similar products.

“It’s portable and the table can be left outside all the time – unlike other tables,” Brown said. “Plus it floats.”

In addition to being sold around the country, Brown said his tables have also been used for different charity events. Recently, the Point Pong table was used at Taste in Red Bank to benefit the Wounded Warriors XXX and will be used in Virginia in a charity event for a facility for the physically challenged.

“It’s been a successful business year and I hope for it to continue,” Brown said.

As for future product plans, Brown said his product’s design is finalized and he does not intend to make further changes, except maybe adding options to make it more visible at night.

Beer Pong Tips

Are you new to playing Beer Pong? Or are you curious to see how to better your aim? Let us help you with these Beer Pong Tips!

THE ARC SHOT
This shot is the most used shot in Beer Pong. Similar to Basketball, your aim is to be directed upward to create an “arc.”

THE FAST BALL
Also known as the “Laser Shot” is a fast ball that is throw with perfect accuracy. This shot is made by using your elbow. Take the ball back behind your ear with your elbow bent. Move the ball forward and release at a 90 degree angle. This shot can take some time to perfect, but when it is used right, it will be sick.

USING THE WATER CUP
As common courtesy, it is polite t
o use the water cup to wash any debris off of your balls. Sometimes, players like to use the water to add some weight to their balls giving them a better shot.

HOUSE RULES
Usually, when someone is hosting a Beer Pong event, they may have their own rules. You must always abide by them. Some rules that may be involved:

AROUND THE BACK
Some players allow this rule, others do not. This rule enforces that when and if your ball rolls back to you, that you can re-shoot – but backwards and around the back. The best technique for this shot is to take your arm and position it so that your arm is wrapping around your back. Next take a step to either your left or right (the side you decide to throw from) and release the ball with with a backwards arc shot.

CALLING YOUR SHOT
This is when you call which cup you are going to make. Depending on the house rules, you could get to shoot again. If you call it and miss, your team loses a cup.

KNOCKING CUPS OVER
If you knock cups over and they are full, then it counts.
