With all of the backyard barbeques that will be happening this summer, it’s always a good idea to have a few entertaining ideas ready to go. There are lots of games you can find for kids, but how about the adults? I know I like to get in on the games sometimes, so here’s an easy game that you can DIY in less than a minute.

Make up your own terms (loser has to make the next batch of margaritas?) to mix up this classic game, but the rules stay the same. Tic-tac-toe, three in a row… except this time, try a new challenging twist and use Frisbees as your game pieces!


  • 1 roll duct tape
  • 6 Frisbees (3 red, 3 blue or colors of your choosing)


  1. To set up your “board” you’ll need a large area of grass and duct tape. Tape your board on the grass like a traditional Tic Tac Toe game.
  2. Give each player different colored Frisbees and play! It’s simple to set up and put away and you can take it almost anywhere.
