4 Tailgating Toss Games That Aren’t Cornhole

 

If you’re a tailgating expert like us, you could win a game of cornhole in your sleep. You have eight different sets of custom cornhole boards painted with your team’s logo in your garage. You’ve played cornhole so many times it’s turned into a hollow shell of a tailgating activity. Toss. Score. Drink. Repeat.

Maybe it’s time for a change.

But if you’re a tailgating expert then you already know toss games are a part of the experience. Is it even game day until you’ve thrown a large object into a slightly larger hole?

If you’re getting sick of cornhole but aren’t ready to give up your precious, precious toss motion, here are four games to try at your next tailgate.

1. Ring Toss

Yeah it’s kind of juvenile, but guess what: it doesn’t involve lugging eight sets of boards and a pile of bean bags to the game. Hell, you can play it with two sticks and some soft pretzels. It’s easy, it’s simple, and it will never go out of style.

Of course, if you’re looking for a sturdier ring toss, you can always buy a proper outdoor lawn set. But trust us, all it takes is a stick and a few circles and boom, you’ve got a whole new way to toss.

 

2. Quarters

There’s only one real way to play Quarters: the way Eric, Hyde, Fez, and Kelso play it at Hyde’s Christmas party in That 70’s Show:

Why is this scene so funny? They’re mercilessly picking on their best friend Eric. Everyone is good at Quarters except Eric. And that makes victory all the more sweet.

Who’s the Eric in your tailgating group? Get them to a table, slap a cup in the middle, and start bouncing.

3. Ladder golf

You can probably find this at any thrift store, dollar store, or garage sale in your neighborhood. Is tossing balls on strings better than tossing bean bags? You be the judge.

 
Fun-pong

4. Pong

If you don’t know how to play pong yet, enroll in your freshman year of college and then get back to us, we’ll wait.

Make it extra fun by gathering some PVC pipes, electrical tape, and yellow paint to create goalposts behind the cups (instructions here).

Happy tossing! And don’t forget to show your cornhole board some love every once in a while, even if it is tailgating’s most overrated toss game.
