…might be the first question you ask yourself. Well, PowerPoint Karaoke is a game with very simple rules: The presenters come on stage and have to convincingly present a set of PowerPoint slides that they have never seen before. The main purpose is to have as much fun as possible. We have listed the exact rules below.
- The presenters have never seen the slides before. The slides are played one after another, none may be skipped.
- The presentation ends when all slides have been presented. The student club limits presentation time to 10 min. in Order to avoid excessively long presentations.
- The presenter / speaker is chosen by lottery.
- The audience will determine the winner.
- A team consists of 2 to 3 players.
- Each team starts with 10 cups arranged in a pyramid, with the top facing the opposing team.
- These cups represent 2 full 0.5 liter bottles of beer*. These are drunk from the bottle, the cups are filled with water.
- Snickers who starts.
- On the turn, the throwing team gets two balls.
- When throwing, the elbow or feet must not cross the edge of the table.
- A throw can be direct or indirect (with tapping).
- No blowing or fingering.
- f there is a cup to be hit without a neighbor, Island can be called. It can be called two times per game, disregarding the calling team
- After both players have thrown (before the trick shots) the result is determined.
- Hit cups are set aside and drinking is required. If two cups which have been hit in the same round, both balls go back to the throwing team. If both hit the same cup, it is a bomb.
- Once per team, the opposing cups may be arranged in any order.
- If the ball rolls over the table back across the center line, a trick shot is granted.
- If a team runs out of cups, all of the team’s remaining beer must be drunk. The other team wins the game.
- When both teams have only max. 4 cups left, Airball starts.
- Trickshot: A throw with handicap. Anything within the normal rules is allowed, apart from normal throwing with the strong hand and eye contact.
- Bomb: Counts as 3 hits.
- Island: Counts as 2 hits if the predetermined cup is hit.
- Indirect Hit: Counts as 2 hits, but may be intercepted.
- Airball: If the ball does not hit the table or cup when thrown, the throwing team will receive a penalty:The throwing team decides which additional cups will be put away.
- If a cup is knocked over, it must be checked if the ball touched the inside of the cup, if it did, it counts as a regular hit, if not, there is a penalty for the throwing team.
- In the middle of the playing field is a 1.5 L plastic bottle that is half full and must be knocked over.
- The two teams are each 6.30 m away from it.
- Between three and five players per team are allowed.
- Neither the order nor the formation of the players may be changed during the game.
- The referee opens the game, only then the beer bottles may be opened under his supervision.
- The game is played with 0.5 L beers in glass bottles (no mixed beer drinks). Each player must drink his own beer (beers may not be given to teammates).
- Throwing is done in order and alternately from left to right.
- Throws may only be made above the hip and elbow (i.e. no bowling throws or similar) from behind the line.
- A team may drink when the bottle is hit until the opposing team has placed the bottle at the marked point and the projectile and all players are behind the team line.
- It is allowed to start running as soon as the ball leaves the hand (feint is allowed, but it must be thrown at the latest at the third time).
- The drinking bottles may not be touched until the bottle in the middle has fallen over.
- When the referee calls „Stop!“, the team must stop drinking immediately.
- It is not allowed to throw again until all bottles are on the ground and the referee releases the game.
- The player who has finished his beer brings it to the referee. The player holds the beer vertically upside down above his head for three seconds. If more than a few drops spill from the beer, the attempt is invalid and a penalty beer is awarded. Otherwise, the beer is considered empty.
