In order to let you know about the best product deals, I frequently search Amazon for items in a variety of categories. Since we are getting close to Memorial Day and graduation, I have been looking for deals on family entertainment. In particular, I’ve been looking at portable games that can be played in the backyard, on the beach, at campgrounds, waiting for an outdoor concert or movie, or any other casual venue. When I was growing up, this meant horseshoes and bocce ball. Now, there is quite a variety of options. I had to laugh when I stumbled upon this sale item. It is called Giant Yard Pong. Yes, you guessed it. The game is exactly what you think would be. It is a giant outdoor version of a game I thought was reserved for college fraternity parties. I decided to do some research.
After all, I graduated from college decades ago. So apparently, beer pong is still a favorite on college campuses, but it is very different from the version I remember. Today, the solo cups are lined up and the object is still to land a ping pong ball in a cup. What’s the main difference? No beer sits in the cups. They use water. Plus, I was told when one player sinks a ball in a cup, the opposing player doesn’t necessarily drink. Interesting. Based on my findings, anyone can play this game. Now the Yard Games company has turned it into an extra large family-friendly outdoor activity. Imagine being at your next picnic taking turns trying to sink the large ping pong balls into cups across the lawn. How fun! Per the manufacturer, the red buckets can also be used to play giant flip cups.
Giant Yard Pong comes with 12 large red buckets that are 9 inches tall and 9 inches wide. These cups are made from an incredibly durable 1.3 mm thick plastic so they are not easily knocked over by flying balls or a windy day. The set also includes game instructions and 2 white plastic balls measuring 3.5 inches in diameter. According to Yard Games, these items were created to scale so people can enjoy the game traditional game on a larger scale. All items can be stacked and toted in the accompanying high strength carrying case. It ranks as Amazon’s Choice for games of this nature. It also receives 4.4 out of 5 stars from reviewers. This game would be a huge hit at tailgating, graduation parties, reunions, or any other outdoor gathering. Fill the buckets with water or sand and get ready to play. It’s perfect for all ages. Amazon usually offers this version of Giant Yard Pong for 54.99, but it is on sale now for only $49.99, with free shipping. Buy your set now and you’ll be the hit of the next party!
