The Day of Games has pretty much covered the games that people play while Tailgating. What next? The next logical step is to move into the game room and try and get some new products that are affordable for everyone, fun to play, and familiar to all. Here are some of our favorites that we are thinking about selling:
We think we’ve covered most of the Game Room Games that you want inside your Man Cave. Anything missing? What’s the best game you’ve ever played in a Game Room? What’s in your ManCave?

& some new games that we are inventing!
Ever played Polish Horseshoes? Now you can buy a new polish horseshoes game from The Day of Games. It’s called Stickzee! It comes with 2 adjustable platforms (3 sizes), 1 175 gram professional disc (ultimate quality), a carrying case, 2 koozies, and a bottle opener. This is a great game. It’s pretty simple to play too. All you need to do is stand behind your Stickzee platform and throw the disc at your opponents platform. If you can knock over a can placed on top of the platform, and it hits the ground… 2 points. If the disc is “catchable” and the opposing team fails to catch the disc…. 1 more point! Throw back and forth until 1 team hits 21. It is also customary to hold a drink in one hand so that only the other can be used for catching and throwing. Some people call this game polish horseshoes, or frisbeer, or beersbee, or spanish horseshoes, or all kinds of names. Now you can buy a Stickzee set and go play!

INCLUDED IN YOUR CROQUET SET –
6 – Croquet Balls (6 colors)
6 – Mallets
9 – Wickets
2 – Can Coolers (koozie’s)
1 – Bottle Opener
Smack your croquet ball under the wickets in order and into the posts. Least amount of strokes possible.
AREA OF PLAY –
Croquet can be played anywhere – Park, Backyard, Alleyway; pretty much any open area. It is not recommended that you use this set indoors, but feel free to play wherever you like. Just stick to the “Basics” and only hit your croquet balls under the wickets and at the stakes. Do not swing the mallets at anything else or throw the balls at anything else. Beware of others while playing.
The standard 9-wicket croquet layout is pictured to the right. However, you can place the 9 inner wickets in any locations you like. Boundaries need to be established, out of bounds balls go back on the boundary.
CROQUET RULES PER THE DAY OF GAMES –
There are various ways to play Croquet and many ways to keep score. This is the Day of Games way. The rules below describe games played one team vs. another team (or 1 person vs. 1 person, up 6 people (or teams) playing at once).
a) Determine who goes first, second, third, etc.
b) Player 1places first ball in between first stake and first wicket, then begins the game. Each player will start exactly the same way by placing the ball in between first stake and wicket and striking with mallet.
c) If the ball passes through both wickets, the player receives two bonus strokes. Generally, bonus strokes do not accumulate – only the last bonus strokes earned are allowed (the exception being the two wickets at the starting or turning stakes). Bonus strokes are awarded for going under a wicket, for striking a stake, or for hitting another ball (this is called roqueting and you get 2 extra strokes).
d) Roqueting – If a player roquets there are four options.
1) Take 2 bonus strokes from where the players ball lands.
2) Place the players ball a single mallet head’s length away from the ball hit and take 2 strokes.
3) Place ball next to the ball hit. Then hit own ball so that it moves both balls. Then take another shot.
4) Place own ball side by side with the struck ball. Then placing foot on own ball strike it so as to move the other ball without moving own. Then take another shot.
e) A player can only roquet once per turn unless the player goes through a wicket or hits the turning stake.
f) If another moves another player’s ball through a wicket or causes it to hit a stake, the wicket or stake is scored, but no bonus strokes are awarded.
First team to go through all wickets and hit the final stake – wins!
