Nowadays, it is difficult to image a sporting event in this country without people partying their faces off in the parking lot. This is a great way for people to get together, enjoy themselves and support their favorite team or school before any game or event.
Typically, this type of party involves drinking alcohol and grilling food. The idea itself started when people began socializing before their teams weekly home game. It is called tailgating because it normally took place around the tailgate of a truck or larger vehicle. The tailgate provides the perfect place to sit, eat some food and drink some beers with your friends. At the time, no one had any clue that this simple idea would spark a revolution and create an entire industry in the United States.
Tailgating has become so popular that millions of people do it every single weekend. It is most popular at NFL and NCAA football games, but has become huge at MLB baseball games, NHL hockey games, MLS soccer games and more. It is a fantastic way for avid fans to get together before the game, grill some food, drink some beers and have a blast with their fellow friends and fans. It is also a great way of socializing with those who share common interests.
One of the greatest things about tailgating is the party games that are involved. If you have ever been to one of these parties, you have definitely seen people playing a variety of different games. When adults get together to eat and drink, partying just happens. One of the best ways that adults party is by playing fun games to keep energy levels high. There are 3 very popular games in particular that you can see at every single tailgate party that takes place.
The first is flip cup. A fascinating game that involves at least 5-10 people and is easy for everyone to play. You simply have to chug a beer and flip a cup. It is that simple. Next is the game of cornhole. A cornhole game, also referred to as a tailgate toss game, involves throwing bean bags back forth at boards on the ground. It is really easy for anyone to pick up the rules. It is not normally a drinking game as it does not require alcohol, but it is a ton of fun when booze is involved! The last one is beer pong, quite possible the most popular party game ever. This game is all about tossing a ping pong ball at some cups on a table. It requires hand-eye coordination and some skill, but is still fun for anyone who plays.
