Ready for an epic tailgate? Take a look at this checklist and make sure you’re not forgetting any essentials!

Games

Just being with close friends guarantees a good time, but bringing some games along just takes the fun to the next level. Of course, you don’t have to bring all of these games, but we listed some popular options so that you can pick and choose your favorites.

  • Football
  • Frisbee
  • Corn Hole
  • Kan Jam
  • Horse Shoes
  • Ladder Golf

 

Food

Let’s talk about food because – let’s be real – isn’t that the best part? Besides your favorite game day recipes, make sure to have loads of snacks, utensils, and definitely water bottles to keep hydrated in the sun.

  • Grill
  • Lighter
  • Coolers & ice
  • Water bottles
  • Burgers, hot dogs, or other game day meals
  • Snacks (chips, pretzels, cookies, etc.)
