Bitch Cup/Freshman Cup Beer Pong Rule
Chuggie’s House Rules – Rule #12
The Bitch Cup/Freshman Cup Beer Pong Rule is one of those beer pong rules with an especially long list of variations, which is why I like it so much. (For real though, how boring are rules like the Elbow Rule? Like yeah they make sense but… you can’t have much fun with them.) Now, get ready for some Bitch Cup/Freshman Cup Beer Pong Rule boot camp with variations, tips, and videos!
What is the Bitch Cup and what does “freshman” have to do with it? If you’ve asked yourself this question, you aren’t alone. Simply put, the Bitch Cup is the cup in the center of the pyramid cup formation. At the start of the game, all of its sides are bordered by other cups.
This Beer Pong Rule’s name is “Freshman Cup” because the Bitch Cup is the easiest shot to land. Therefore, newbies to beer pong (freshman in college) mostly score that cup.
The 7 Best Bitch Cup / Freshman Cup Beer Pong Rule Variations
#1. The “You’re My Bitch!” Freshman Cup Variation
In this variation, it’s definitely humiliating if you hit the bitch cup first. You have to walk over to the other side of the table, where your opponent will slap you on the cheek. He/she will then announce “You’re My Bitch!” This variation is for the adventurous, danger-seeking type as it has a habit of getting out of hand…. In a good way, of course!
#2. The “Even Gender Playing Field” Bitch Cup Variation
Finally, a rule to even the playing field! If you’re a guy and you land a shot in the bitch cup first, it doesn’t count.
However, if you’re a girl and you hit the bitch cup for your first cup, it does count. I like to think of this as a gift to the girls dealing with drunk guys hitting on them all night long.
#3. The “Suck My Dick” Bitch Cup/Freshman Cup Beer Pong Rule Variation
The “Suck My Dick” Bitch Cup/Freshman Cup Beer Pong Rule is an excellent example of why you should find out House Rules before the game begins.
#4. The “Dudes Take Their Pants Off” Freshman Cup Variation
Alright, the name says it all. This bitch cup/freshman cup beer pong rule variation dictates that all men who hit the bitch cup their first turn have to take their pants off. Regardless of how many shots his partner makes, he can only put his pants back on after he hits another cup.
#5. The “7, 8, 9, 10” Bitch Cup/Freshman Cup Beer Pong Rule Variation
This rule applies when you hit the Bitch Cup while your opponents have 10, 9, 8, or 7 cups remaining on the table. If you violate this rule, you must turn down all music to ensure the entire party hears you announce “My name is ____, and I am a bitch.”
#6. Chuggie’s House Rules for Bitch Cup/Freshman Cup Beer Pong Variation
Our official rule is that if you hit Bitch Cup first, you’ve gotta lose the pants for the rest of the night. None of that “You get your pants back when you score.” Go big or go home, especially when it has to do with beer pong.
#7. The “Shoot From Your Knees” Bitch Cup Variation
In this Bitch Cup/Freshman Cup Beer Pong Rule Variation, the player who hits the Bitch Cup has to shoot from their knees until they hit their next cup. Have fun trying to help your teammate defend against your opponents bounce shots from down on your knees.

Beer Pong Tips & Strategies
#1. Remember the Bitch Cup for the Ring of Fire Beer Pong Rule
In this official beer pong rule, hitting the Bitch Cup can be a great thing. If you hit it after your first turn, you may be on your way to victoriously winning the match.
#2. Pre-Gaming is Crucial
One of the reasons Beer Pong is such a popular American game is because you can play it even when you’re drunk. In fact, most people perform better after a drink or two. Loosen up a little by doing a shot or playing a quick round of Most Likely.
After that, you’ll be relaxed and better able to avoid the Bitch Cup at your first turn.
#3. Plan Your Underwear Accordingly
You never know what kind of rules or shenanigans are going down during beer pong games, of course. With this in mind, be prepared to be pants-less.
Sometimes getting too competitive ruins the fun. Remember this: You’re getting drunk and throwing balls around. Even if you troll, you still spent time being fucking awesome.
