Games to play
Play classic card games like poker, Texas Holdem, or Go Fish with your friends on Zoom or Skype!
Cards Against Humanity
This wildly popular game is fun to play with family or friends and works well over Zoom if your friends have the game too (it’s so popular, they might!). One person draws a card and the other players use a card in their hand to pair with the drawn card to make a funny sentence. The person deemed funniest wins the round.
This game is a classic game for all ages! It’s simple, one letter is given with five categories, you have 60 seconds to list as many words as possible that start with that letter. Those with the most unique words will get more points!
Play football themed trivia and see who knows the most about their favorite team. Or play Pit Barrel® themed trivia and see who has the most outdoor-cooking knowledge!
Take your drum grill or barrel smoker to your driveway or porch and have a socially distanced get-together for the Big Game! Both sizes of Pit Barrel® are designed to be portable so you can cook alongside your neighbors for a neighborhood cookout. Pop open a cold one and celebrate the Big Game with you neighbors, and stay safe while doing it!
Regardless of the games you play or the food you cook, this year’s Big Game is bound to be a memorable one. With technology like video conferencing and Zoom we can enjoy some of our favorite pastimes together (even in a different way). Share quality time with friends safely by cooking in your Pit Barrel® and sharing the experience through Zoom or socially distanced with neighbors. Those on Zoom might not be able to smell the delicious aroma of smoking ribs or brisket, but they can join in on the experience. We hope this year’s Big Game is fun, safe and memorable for your family and friends.
