Glad it was a rental,
This review is from: Game Party - Nintendo Wii (Video Game)
The only reason I gave it a two was because of the amount of activities. We played it for several hours and not once did it inspire a laugh or any real spontaneous celebration. Skee Ball and Mini Hoops are single player games only, Beer Pong is the most tedious waste of time ever, and Darts is ok, except every shot is followed by an exaggerated crowd reaction and the same Irish song loops endlessly (double arghhh - and I'm Irish!). So that left us with Shuffleboard, which we found most fun (we didn't bother with Air Hockey because we already knew it wouldn't compete with the Wii Play version). Shuffleboard had some catchy music that actually changed during gameplay, and the physics seemed to be good - but again, Billiards in Wii Play has the same general idea and looks 100 times better. If you bought Wii Play to get a second Wiimote you'll never bother with this one most likely. SORRY!!

Did you play Ping Cup(Beer Pong) with beer, or did you play it dry? Beer Pong in real life takes a really long time so I don't understand why it's a bad thing or waste of time(unless you play it w/out beer). Playing Ping Cup without beer would be like playing Quarters with Water imo.

I was going to write my own comment, but you said it all! Bought this for the Skee (skill) Ball, but HATE IT! The only game my kids enjoyed on this was shuffleboard!
