King Pong

King Pong is a super fun game for 2 or more players. You’ll laugh and laugh and laugh and then do the silent-laughing thing because you’ll be out so of breath. You will need a ping pong ball and some utensils.

  • Each player sets up a goal by placing two utensils parallel to each other at the edge of the table closest to them.
  • A ping pong ball is placed at the middle of the table.
  • The countdown begins, 3, 2, 1 and each player starts blowing trying to get the ping pong ball to roll into someone else’s goal.

Every family can make up their own rules on game play and how to score. Younger kids might have smaller goals to keep it fair. A golf ball can also be used.

Warning: This game results in an unbelievable amount of laughter!

Note: We also mentioned in a previous post that Kitchen Table Tennis is also a ton of fun and works surprisingly well. You can play by regular table tennis rules, but why not get creative and make up your own game! Make a point system based on bounces and returns off light fixtures, cabinets, walls…the variations are endless and your family will end up with a personalized family game you’ll play and laugh about for years to come. New traditions, anyone? 

The best part? Hours after starting the game, when you think your kids are starting to lose interest, put a couple of red cups on the table, introduce a new rule and go back to reading your book.
Even your cat will find it hard to resist joining in the fun!
Kits are available that include paddles, balls and the adjustable need…everything you need to get started. You may want to buy a couple of extra paddles, though. We have a feeling everyone will want to get in on the game!
Looking for more games and fun while Physical Distancing? Social DISCUS-ing is one of our favorites!
