New Sportcraft Tailgating Games — JUST IN TIME FOR A NEW SEASON!

Gotta give it to Sportcraft. They have launched a boatload of new games. I have always loved this company. I have a Sportscraft Pool Table that I snagged from Walmart on the cheap. Works great for $400! Alas, I digress. The purpose of this article to to review one of the games they sent my way. I had the privilege of trying out of  the Bean Bag / Washer Combo. This game is the best of both worlds. It gives you the option of playing the traditional washers in a “coffee tin” game OR the classic bean bag in the hole game (similar to Baggo). This game comes self contained in a wood carrying case that doubles as a storage device and “coffee tin” holder. This design makes it easy to transport to and from events. When I first received the game my 5 year olds were mesmerized. They have played bean bags in the past and loved the ease of this game. This game provides fun for all ages. Whether it by the tailgating boozers (like myself on Sundays at the Link) or family weekend parties. This game is well worth the investment for you football tailgate enthusiasts. Not only did they launch the bean bag /washer combo but an entire line of Tailgating products. Here is a list and descriptions provided from Sportcraft:

Toss & Hook Washers
Sportcraft’s Toss & Hook Washers is the ultimate test of “tail-gaming” skill.  With a twist on the classic southern-inspired game, the object is to sink washers into a cup located in a wooden box placed 18 feet away, or to ‘hook’ the washer on the brushed metal hooks on the backboard for an instant game ender. Great for indoor/outdoor play, Toss & Hook Washers comes with six weighted hexagon washers and two lockable target boxes, PVC scoring goals and rope handles for easy transport.  Toss & Hook Washers is great for ages 6+ and is available at, and Target retailers nationwide for a suggested retail of $44.99. 
Football Fricket/Ladderball
Test your field goal ability and point scoring accuracy with this combination of two classic tailgating games.  Throw the disc at the uprights to knock the footballs off of the frame.  If the football reaches the ground, you score three points.  A disc that travels through the uprights and knocks a football to the ground receives an extra point.  If the football is caught by your opponent before it hits the ground, no points are scored.  Suitable for ages 6+, Football Fricket/Ladderball can be enjoyed by the whole family.  This two-in-one game comes complete with two PVC frames, four football shaped targets, six bolos and one flying disc.  Suitable for ages 6+, Fricket/Ladderball is available at and Wal-Mart for a suggested retail of $34.99.

    We bought a set of washer toss and hook for the Canada Day weekend. Used it first day , great fun, second day they fell apart.For $60 you would think they would last more than 2 days.
