Tailgating and cornhole tend to go hand-in-hand. This outdoor game is a popular one and played everywhere, from barbecues to restaurant patios, campsites to beaches. Bring along a cornhole set that’s designed for tailgating, made to be ultra-portable and includes all-in-one storage. Don’t forget weatherproofed boards and super durable beanbags, too.

While you can only play 2 or 4 players at a time, the rounds go quickly and you can rotate people in and out. Cornhole is a great game for all ages and skill levels, especially since it doesn’t take very long to understand the simple rules and figure out a strategy.

Bocce Ball

If you’re in a gravel parking lot or camping out in a grassy area, bocce ball is the way to go. This compact game is setup-free and easy to learn for beginners. You only need a space about the same size as a cornhole game setup, making it tailgate-friendly entertainment.

Play up to 6 players at a time with this classic backyard game. Make sure to choose balls with poly-resin, so they don’t chip or crack.


This might be a no-brainer, but throwing around a football while you’re waiting for hamburgers and hotdogs is a fun way to get excited about the game. Check your all-weather game football’s air pressure before you leave, and you’re good to go.


Test your knowledge about your favorite team or sport with a game of trivia with your tailgate buddies! Whether you’re a statistics buff or history fanatic, play a fun game of trivia to entertain your family and friends at your next event. Who knows, maybe you’ll learn something new.

From cornhole to trivia, these easy and fun games are perfect for the whole family. Play these fan-favorite games at your next tailgate event and start a new tradition for seasons to come.
