BasicsHold a round of games that might be skills one would need to live in the Old West. We could have a range of games like
  • Beer Mug Slide -- for length of slide and for aim
  • Calf Rope - throw a loop of rope to catch a calf
  • Horse theft - make a course with things to go through, have a herd in it and score based on how much of the herd you grab and bring back in the right length of time.
  • Brawl - use foam chairs and jugs and have a big fight; score points for each hit you land on your foes
  • Hat toss - throw your hat on the hook
  • Card Game with Flush and Straight and Pair - we could play stud or draw
Why is this Fun?Everybody wants to be a cowboy and try new things.
Variations:I am sure there could be more games to this. I do not know if the Old West is the theme for this year.
