Pong Toss! Frat Party Games, known in Europe as Beer Pong! Frat Party Games, is a sports/party video game developed by JV Games for the Wii's WiiWare digital distribution service. It was first released in North America in 2008, and then in Europe the following year. The premise is based on the party game beer pong, which requires players to toss ping pong balls into plastic cups filled with alcohol. It was the first in JV Games' Frat Party Games brand. While they considered using traditional controls for the game, the developers felt that it should use the Wii Remote so that it could be more fun. They conducted a test on 15 people to see how they played beer pong.
Pong Toss has had a substantially negative reaction from critics by critics; it holds an aggregate score of 18/100 and 18.75% on Metacritic and GameRankings, respectively, which includes reviews from websites such as IGN and 1UP.com. It received negative reception from parents, activist groups, and Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal. over its premise before its release due to its connection to alcohol as well as what they considered a lax Entertainment Software Ratings Board (ESRB) content rating. In response, JV Games removed reference to drinking alcohol from the game and its title, which caused the ESRB to lower the content rating. A sequel was released titled Pong Toss Pro: Frat Party Games, which received negative but improved reception.
