As we quickly approach the height of BBQ season, the yearly conundrum of what to bring is back again. While the old stand-bys of beer and snacks are always appreciated, this Summer, consider bringing something a little more exciting to your next event. Both young and old alike love getting involved in a friendly game, and SPY has found three fun, outdoor-centric games that are ideal for the laid back atmosphere of a BBQ. Whether you’re hanging out with some work friends and kicking off an epic beer pong tournament, or entertaining the kids at a family gathering with a rousing game of cornhole, these games can add something unique to a standard BBQ. Plus, your host will be happy for the diversion, ensuring your invite to many BBQs to come.

1. Beer Pong Party Cup Set

No BBQ is complete without a friendly game of beer pong. Be everybody’s favorite guest and come with this party cup set, complete with twenty-two cups and three balls. These cups aren’t your typical red solo cups either- they’re HEXCUPS, cups that are specifically designed to fit together perfectly, so that no one can blame the cups or set up for their poor performance. The cups also have reinforced plastic on their lips to help prevent cracking, meaning you can wash them out and continue using them for a friendly tournament on a Summer’s afternoon.
