Returning this year is “Hoppy Hammer,” our version of the traditional German game of skill that puts contestants head to head as they drive single nails into a log with the fewest strikes. This game has proven to be a real hit with friends and couples as they compete for bragging rights and awesome beer-themed prizes.
This American classic bean bag toss game challenges players to throw cornhole bags across a rectangular court onto a facing platform. Bags that land in the hole are worth 3 points. Bags that land on the platform, without going in the hole or touching the ground are worth 2 points. Bags landing outside of the platform are worth 0 points. The first player/team to reach 21 points or more wins.
This oversized version of the popular table top game involves dozens of wooden blocks stacked in levels of three in a tower. Players take turns pulling one block from any level (except the one below an incomplete top level) and placing it on the topmost level. The game ends when the tower falls on a player’s turn. The opposite player during a tower fall is the winner.
