Gear: Even More Tailgating Games

By Marshal M. Rosenthal

A tailgate is lots of things, and boring definitely isn’t one of them. And if it is, you’re doing something drastically wrong. From food and drink to friends and family, it should be all fun and games out in the parking lot.

But there is lots of time to fill leading up to kickoff. What better way to do it than with a rousing game of, well, whatever you want? And there are a lot of options. So many that Tailgate Fan already tackled the topic of games once. (Maybe you remember Play It Up at the Tailgate.)

Now we’re circling back with a few more games for your next tailgate. Here we go:

Sometimes the big question is:  What do I have room for? A lot of stuff needs to make it out to the parking lot, and that trunk is only so big. Triumph’s Trio Toss Game combines three outdoor games — bag toss, ladder toss and washer toss (bean bags, washers and bolas included) — in one portable carrying case. Another tailgating problem solved, thank you very much.

Beer Pong gets even more portable. Now you can move it from the basement to the tailgate. At 18 x 10 x 5 inches each, the two tables are big enough to to hold 10 standard 16-ounce cups. And they’re small enough to transport and pack everything in the travel/storage bag that comes with it.

It’s cornhole, and then some. Perfect for the parking lot or the backyard, this Fold-n-Go Shooters game has four targets with different point values. Aim for the small hole worth the most points or the big hole worth the least. And when the fun and games give way to the big game, it’s easily collapsed and stowed in the trunk until the tailgating continues.

Maybe all you want is a good-ole game of cornhole, without all the extra stuff. Well, far be it from us to stand between a tailgater and a good time. Here you go. These two aluminum boards are sturdy and waterproof, and fold flat when not in use. The beanbags are double-lined so they won’t tear or break (4 each red/blue). Let the games begin.
