40 Top Adult Fall Outdoor Activities
Some Outdoor Drinking Games
- Beer Pong
This is a classic drinking game with the full intention of making someone else drink until their full. There are so many variations that you can play.
- Knees, Stomach, Head, Rock Drink
The object here is to place a mat on the ground and have two competitive people kneeling on the mat facing each other. A simple rock is placed an equal distance away but out of reach of the two people. A third person says either knees, stomach, head, or rock. When “knees” are said, the competitors touch their knees, “stomach,” said then touch stomach, “head” touch head. If “rock” is said then the two competitors rush to claim the rock first. The loser that doesn’t get the rock first has to drink.

It’s just like Spikeball but the loser after every round has to drink.

It’s just like Cornhole but the winner picks whether he drinks or the opponent has to drink after each direct cornhole through the hole.
