You may recall a few weeks ago we introduced you to MegaPongo. (If you don’t remember, you can refresh your memory by reading our product review HERE.)
Earlier this month out in Las Vegas, the National Hardware Show gave the “Game Ball Award” to MegaPongo as the best tailgate game at the expo based upon its novelty, originality and versatility.
MegaPongo was among more than 80 manufacturers that showcased their outdoor, tailgate and recreation products at the annual home improvement show. MegaPongo’s innovative design includes two round, free-standing game boards that also serve as the carrying case for all of the game parts – target cups, legs backboards, collection cups and balls. Each game also features clear plastic backboards and ball collection nets to corral balls – another first for pong game designs.
Truly an open source concept of the 19-hole game board allow players to place ball cups in a variety of configurations. They can create their own games or set up traditional game formats, such as Around the World, Chaos, Ring of Fire and 10-Cup.
Designed for portability, MegaPongo weighs less than 11.5 pounds and measures 23 inches in diameter – similar in size and weight to a case of beer.
