Toss a football around the parking lot and you'll spend half your tailgate time crawling under cars in search of dropped passes. Instead bring this classic backyard game, in which you whip bola-attached golf balls at a ladder in hopes of catching it on one of three rungs. Ladder Golf's Double Ladder Ball Game version is built from hardwood and brass, and is durable enough to last more than most of your team's first-round picks. Packs down into a carrying case for easy transport. [$130; laddergolf.com]
