Any new camping games on the market?

Any new camping games on the market or has anyone invented one that you can share? I have posted a pic of one I moditified from a few years ago. I know this can be bought on line and in some RV stores. I know it as " Ladder Golf ". I changed it from 3/4" pvc to 1" pvc and changed the spacing to be the same as if it was 3/4". The other change I made was on the very top, on each end instead of having a 90, I used a 45, this sorten the top by 3" and the rope will drop to the next one down if the player hits the 45 on the end.

Has anyone heard of Pegs and Jokers? We seem to pass alot of time playing this game. Our friends have the game and we try to play at every outing.

The name of that is "Washers" and you can find some really good download links for building your own box. I built my wife and I one around the holidays and are eager to try it outside. I built ours with 3 holes, all the same size, on a rectangular type box. There's enough room to drill more holes if we decided to, but for now, 3 will do. Nice part is that the two boxes fit together, one inside of the other, so storage is a little easier. The directions called for 2x2 posts on the bottom, but i used 1x1 and it works just fine. As for the washers, i used the spray can version of the spray on rubber coating in red and black. I haven't found yellow spray locally, but i know it can be bought online. Most commonly, you'll find the cans of dip to dip the washers in, but it's pretty thick and could be messy if you're not careful. Either way, it should be fun.

The site i used was http://www.washerplayers.net/ but if you google "washers game", there are all kinds of links for rules, explanations, and box ideas. The best part is, there is not any specific right or wrong way of building your own personal boxes unless you are planning on getting into an official circuit. However, the idea behind throwing washers is universal, so your imagination is your only limit.



Hopefully this works - http://www.forestriverforums.com/for...bum.php?u=3073

I took some pics of the ones I made in December.

For those rainy days, we like to take Farkle along with us too. It's easy to pack and can be a lot of fun while waiting out the weather.

We like this SPIN IT game. More fun than the standard Ladder Golf if you ask me.

I change the design of mine from the original, the top of the game that I made now has 45 degree fittings instead of 90 degree this shorten the top by 3" and if the rope raps around the 45 it will drop to the next level and this has happen many times and I made it with 1" pvc instead of 3/4.
