The Best Tailgate Party Games
For Under $100

The best tailgate party games aren’t just fun…

They also have the ability to take you back to a more carefree time…

Like college.

You remember college… It was a time when…

  • You had hair.
  • You subsisted on a diet of pizza & beer without gaining weight.
  • You were able to party all night & still wake up for class in the morning.
  • You could have a great time with little money.

Now you earn a lot more money, but you also have a lot more expenses. And so while you really wanted to have a tailgate party to remember, you don’t want to spend yet another $100 or more on games.

Guess what? You don’t have to, and that doesn’t mean settling for a lame card game or touch football.

Let’s start with…

Two of the best tailgate party games…

That are also 2 of the most popular: corn hole and beer pong.

Set of Corn Hole boards, painted: $150 & up.
Tailgate Toss: $50-$85, depending on your team.

Best Tailgate Party Games Under $100
Unless you’re playing in a tournament, do you really need a regulation-sized corn hole board? Tailgate Toss is essentially a mini corn hole game. At approximately ¾ the size (36″x 25″x 4″), it is small enough to be transported easily, yet large enough to feel like the real thing, and a helluva lot cheaper.

Buy Tailgate Toss.

Full size (8-foot) Beer Pong table: $90 & up.
6-foot Beer Pong table: $72.99

Not only is smaller cheaper, but here are 2 more reasons that 72 inches is better than 96:

  • If the parking lot is especially crowded, 2 feet can mean the difference between “violating” a tailgating boundary or staying within your space.
  • The larger the table, the harder it is to get the balls in the cup. This makes the game last longer, and more beer = more money.

Get a GoPong 6-foot Beer Pong Table for only $72.99.

For a limited time, get a GoPong 8-foot Beer Pong Table for $79.99 (they won’t last long at this price).

And two games that are lesser known…

But no less fun, proving that the best tailgate party games needn’t be expensive.

Dizzy Bat.   Has there ever been a more debaucherous game for $11? It’s also more fun as a spectator than participant:
