Merchandise Monday: Summer Party Games

Summer is officially here, as of this Wednesday, and it’s time to let the games begin – backyard party games, that is! Summer wouldn’t be summer without the casual outdoor barbecue, and no outdoor party is complete without backyard staples such as volleyball, horseshoes and “bags,” which has different nicknames depending on what stage of life you’re in.

The best part about these particular games is that the rules are few, and most of them can be played with one hand so you can use the other to hold your burger or beverage. It doesn’t matter if you’re good or not, because it’s all in fun. After all, it’s a party! You win just by showing up.
