Tailgating games have come a long way and are the reasons we just don’t sit around getting sore butts sitting on a tailgate. After you have played all the mainstay tailgating games like cornhole, washers and ladder ball, it is time to look for something new. For those looking for something different to play while out in the tailgating parking lots, you may want to try Ringer Toss.
(Make sure to read all the way to the bottom for details on how you can win one of three Ringer Toss games.)
As you can see in the photo, Ringer Toss is a game that uses wooden planks, sticks, plastic cups and flying discs for each team to throw. Combining the elements of good old fashioned ring toss from the carnival midway to Polish Horseshoes where you are knocking an object off to score points, Ringer Toss is a unique game we had never seen before.
Upon setting up the game, each team is given four flying discs that have large holes in the middle. This is by design because part of the game is to try and get your flying ring to catch onto one of the poles pointing up. The rules are pretty simple. Throw your flying rings at the scoring area and try to knock off the cups. Cups knocked off score one point and getting a ringer (your disc over a pole) scores three points. First player or team to score 21 wins. Take a look at this quick video of Ringer Toss being played.
Ringer Toss comes in it’s own carrying bag and is extremely environmentally friendly. This eco-friendly game is made in the USA with reclaimed lumber, recycled plastic rings and even the backpack fabric is made from recycled bottles. Even though the game is made mostly out of wood, it is light and portable. Everything fits into the small backpack and weighs less than seven pounds. Once you arrive at your tailgating spot, set up is easy with the unique interlocking design. You’ll have the game set up in under a minute without any fasteners or hardware. The game is just as easy to break down and pack away when it is time to head inside the game.

Upon receipt of Ringer Toss we were impressed at how the game set up. Since the game is not fastened together with screws or nails, there is some give and sway to it during game play. This is by design and is part of the game play. I had my kids try it and they enjoyed it too so it is game for all ages.
