Fun & Games

It’s going to take a lot more than booze and burgers to keep you entertained. So here’s a few of the most beloved pregame activities.

Cornhole/Baggo: There’s a reason it’s become one of the most popular tailgating activities—it’s addicting. Who knew throwing a beanbag into a hole a few feet away actually required skill?

Beer pong: Having established that the parking lot is literally covered in piss, fill cups with cold water instead of beer while keeping a beer on the side. You should also invest in Pongitizer Ball Cleaner (available on Pongitizer.com). Unlike standard disinfecting wipes, they don’t contain chemicals you wouldn’t want to ingest.

Ladder Toss/Ladder Ball/Testicle Toss: If you thinking throwing two balls connected by a string (“bolas”) onto PVC pipes sounds like a game kindergartners could master, you’ve obviously never played.

Ladder Golf/Hillbilly Golf: Exactly like Ladder Toss, but with two golf balls.

Shuffle Shot/Sholf: These two portable outdoor games put a unique spin on shuffleboard. Sholf is played on the ground with golf putters while Shuffle Shot is a played on a tabletop.
