Begin quote

Partially filled plastic beer cups arranged like the Star of David and a swastika at opposite ends of the table?

This goes way beyond beer pong gone wrong. Beer pong is a popular drinking game in which players try to toss a pingpong ball across a table and into a cup of beer. If successful, a person on the opposing team must chug the beer from that cup and then remove the cup from the game.
