Just choose your teammate wisely. And try not to get too carried away with diving. P.S. the rules are like volleyball. So it’s simple to learn. Game on.
One side is for checkers. The other is for tic-tac-toe. All the pieces fit inside. It’s the perfect travel option.
Meet pong golf. You can add beer. Or water for the kids. Either way it’s a win-win for the family. Get ready to be entertained for hours.
Things just got a bit more … interesting. Enter: a Jenga-style game. But some pieces house surprise jello shots. The flavor of that shot is up to you. Loser will probably need an early bedtime.
Time to test your aim. While treading water. Sorry in advance for the workout.
Winner gets out of doing the dishes. Plus this set is just too cute to put away. Go ahead, leave it out on the lawn.
Maybe you know a bunch of random facts. Maybe you’re lying. It’s all in your poker face. This trivia game will put it to the test.
This board includes squares that’ll showcase your dance moves and challenge your memory. Everyone gets a turn. Bottoms up.
Bring ‘em to the beach. Or just to the backyard. It’ll be a relaxing way to unwind with family.
Just attach the net. Aka, clear the dishes and go head-to-head with your rival. Whoever sends the ball into the bushes has to go get it.
Set up is easy and it can be played anywhere. Rack up the most points and boom. You got out of laundry duty.
