Some smart and inventive Valheim players have figured out how to build fully functional beer (or mead) pong tables in their shelters and have a game.
The surprise hit of the litter box Valheim It offers many creation and customization opportunities, but a Reddit player has discovered a whole new way to pass the time: beer pong. Or more specifically, barleywine pong or mead pong.
In the nearly four weeks since Valheim appeared in Early Access, the Viking-themed survival game from Swedish developer Iron Gate Studio has taken the world by storm, surpassing other pop culture titans like Among us in downloads and count of simultaneous players. Players take the helm of a Viking killed in battle and transported by the Valkyries to the 10th Norse kingdom of Valheim and are tasked with building shelters, fighting monsters, and restoring order to the world besieged by battle. With a variety of biomes to explore and increasingly valuable materials to mine for weapons and tools, the game brings the flavors of Minecraft at a Viking party.
With so much versatility in Valheim, it is natural for players to find new and interesting ways to use the vast library of goodies created for their own entertainment. One of those players, Redditor JaplesPie He is not the first to come up with the idea, but he was the first to document its construction on video and post it. In their setup, they used horizontal item holders and jugs of homemade mead or barley wine if unlocked, to create a truly powerful set of Viking beer pong. So players (of legal drinking age) who miss out on traditional beer pong games that have dried up due to the COVID-19 pandemic can get by with a digital version, inside their sacred Viking halls.
Anyone who wants to emulate the JaplesPie setup will need a brass ax to cut through fine wood. Then mount them on tables, horizontal item stands with brass nails, and cups. Mead is more widely available and there are a variety of recipes to make it, but if barleywine has been unlocked, bonus points for authenticity. Players can throw amber pearls instead of ping pong balls, which will land on top of the cups when taken correctly. It’s also a great way to resolve disputes for anyone too squeamish to pick up an ax and hack things man-to-man.
With COVID-19 still running, it’s not surprising that people are looking to recreate their favorite pre-pandemic hobbies in sandbox games like Valheim. That may be a contributing factor to the unexpected success of the game, considering that, as far as everyone knows, no one has ever managed to create a beer pong table that works in Minecraft.
