Heat Up Your Grill!
Is there anything better than having your friends and family over, heating up the grill, and enjoying the weather in your backyard?
Adding in a few BBQ party games for adults not only spices things up for your guests but gives them something to do while they’re waiting on the BBQ to finish up. Choosing the best BBQ party games depends on the interests of your guests, so keep that in mind.
Pong golf: a game where beer pong combines with golf. Whether you’re an avid golfer or just want a fun BBQ party game for adults, pong golf is one you should give a try. Similarly to beer pong, the goal is to sink the ball in all of your opponent’s cups. Instead of tossing the balls, you’ll use a golf club to aim the balls into the opponent’s holes. Whoever removes all of the other team’s cups wins!
GIANT YARD PONG
with yard pong, you’re working with giant cups, so you probably don’t want to fill these up. Each team takes turns throwing a set of balls at six giant buckets. If the ball lands in the bucket, it is removed. Whichever team can eliminate the other team’s buckets, wins. What’s really fun about giant yard pong, is that you can also play it in your pool! The buckets and balls float, so if you have a pool, this is a great option.
Put Out Pool Floats If you have a pool in the backyard, turn the BBQ into a pool party. Don't forget to put out pull floats that double as decor.
Spice up your BBQ party with a BBQ themed table setup. A combination of color coordinated plates, cups, cutlery, party favors, banners, and more to spice things up!
