MadPong™ - The best thing since Beer Pong!
MadPong™, is everything what Beerpong is missing. It is 100% hygienic, no more filth in your drink and all cups contain an assignment.
MadPong™ is a new insane version of Beer pong. It has much more interaction between players, hygienic gameplay and it is not only about drinking beer anymore. All the red cups also contain a funny assignment for the whole group. Are you ready for FULL MADNESS!?
Interview after the first MadPong™ tournament at club Blender with international student organisation RISA.
The game that we are launching is called MadPong™. Do you know Beer Pong? Off course you do. Beer pong is the most popular drinking game in the world. It is so popular that it has become a sport, with its own world championship. We love challenges, so we thought: let's combine the best elements of our best-seller MadWish with traditional Beer pong and created MadPong™ for you! The principle rules of the game are the same. Throw the ball into one of the opponent’s cup and have them drink the beer inside the cup. Once you’ve eliminated all the opponent’s cups, you win! The thing that makes MadPong™ different and funnier than regular beer pong are its assignments. MadPong™ has up to 63 different waterproof assignment cards that can be placed inside the cups. These assignments range from twerking to touching the fattest person in the room. We designed these assignment cards with images and not with text to make it easier to understand even when you’re drunk. If the ball falls into the cup, you will have to perform that assignment and everyone has to follow your lead. The last one to follow will take a shot. It's not only beer anymore we also put a shot glass into the game. Our cup, AKA King’s cup, is specially designed to prevent both the assignment card and the ball from falling into the beer you will be drinking. Making the game more hygienic. After all, who likes beer with hair and dust in it? No one!
We choose to share MadPong™ through Kickstarter in order to show the world the ambition that we have for our product. Kickstarter is a great platform to share creative and innovative products and that is exactly what we are trying to do with MadPong™. Join us on this exciting journey!
After deciding that it was time to develop a new drinking game, we researched some of the popular drinking games and found out that beer pong was by far the most popular drinking game on the market. Therefore we decided to look closer into the game to understand what makes it so popular. Our first impression of the game was that it was indeed a fun game to play but it was too simple. The interaction between the players during a normal Beer pong is limited to the two players which stand in front of each other. So we added a unique variety of assignment cards into the cups to create more depth in the game. This way, the other players in the room will also have more engagement during the game. In simple words, we combined our best-seller MadWish with traditional Beer pong and created MadPong™, the best thing since Beer pong!
In an era of digital entertainment, where people are glued to their smart phones and TV screens, we think it is important to bring people back together to have fun and interact with each other. Besides doing all types of different assignments together, we believe that MadPong™ will bring back the excitement, brotherhood and love which we used to experience by playing a game. All players have more fun and no one stands idle during the entire game. Another aspect that drove us to this idea was solving a problem. The biggest problem with beer pong is the dirty ball that falls into your drink. You don’t want to dip the ball in a water cup each time you have to throw, it’s annoying. Besides that who guarantees that the ball will get clean? With the double function of the King’s cup, this problem is solved. No more water cups and no more dirt inside your drink.
One of the main characteristics of MadPong™ is the special designed King’s cup. When we started designing this cup, the whole idea was to create a cup design that would hold the MadPong™ assignment cards and at the same time keep the inside beer clean. As you can see in the picture, we created four different cup designs before we finally arrived at our final King’s cup design. We started by taking the standard red cups from Beer pong as example.
Our first cup had a nice design but it didn’t hold our assignment cards steady. With our second design we tried out some unique shapes on the bottom of the cup to make it look fun. But, this shape didn’t solve the problem that we had with fitting the assignment cards inside the cup. Besides that the cup was too futuristic and deviates too much from the original red cup design. Our third design was one of the better design that we created. The assignment cards fitted perfectly inside the cup. However, the design looked too simple and similar to the regular red cup. In our final design we finally created the perfect shape for fitting the assignment cards inside the cup and the ball stays in the cup instead of bouncing out again. Besides that, we were really happy with the final King’s cup design and tested it on several occasions. On each occasion, the King’s cup did exactly what it was designed for. The Kings cup fits also perfectly with our slogan, King of Party Games.
Note: we've tested how often the ball bounces out of the King's cup whilst playing the game. After an extensive amount of rounds, we are proud to say that the ball almost didn't bounce out of the cup once! This is due to the special design of the King's cup and assignment cards that prevent the ball from bouncing back out. So, don't worry, we got you covered!
The King's cups displayed in the pictures above are a prototype we produced with a 3D printer. The real King's cups will be made according to the standard materials used in regular red cups.
Another unique aspect of MadPong™ are the mad cards. What are these so called “Mad cards”? These waterproof cards are representing the 63 hilarious assignments in the game which you have to fulfill. These assignments vary from touching the fattest person in the room to showing your twerking abilities. We purposely designed these assignment cards with images instead of text, this way it’s easy for everyone to understand even if you’re a little bit drunk.
We choose for a €30,000 target because according to our estimates, this will be the amount of money we will need to make this project a success. If you look at the pie chart below, you can see in which areas we will spend the expected funds collected from this Kickstarter campaign.

Risks and challenges
Since we have over 10 years of experience within the board game industry, there are many potential risks that we can prevent from happening. However, the main risk that we are concerned with is our production capacity once we launch MadPong™. The demand for our product might increase so drastically that we might not be able to supply all the customers in time. Therefore we have to monitor the exact demand for our product and try to make rough estimations.
Another concern that we have are the logistical operations once we release MadPong to the public worldwide. We have to make sure that our distribution runs smoothly and that the orders arrive at their destination at the right time and location. This can be done by working closely together with outsourced logistical organisations within various countries. We will arrange all deliveries within Europe from our own warehouse and logistic partners but for examples in the USA we will have to build and trust on new partners
In case the world is not ready for FULL MADNESS, we keep the volume low, so the problems won't grow.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
