This Just Might Be the Coolest Pool Party Game of All Time
Your friends can post all the pizza and doughnut pool float pictures they want. We’ve got something even better. Have you seen this Hot Dog Joust Pool Game at Urban Outfitters? Not only is it food-themed, which we’ll always love, but it also just looks like a boatload of fun — way more fun than just lounging there on a giant inflatable ice cream cone.

The rules appear to be simple: Get a friend and figure out how you can each mount one (decently realistic) hot dog. Then, drift toward each other and use the included ketchup and mustard boppers to knock your opponent in the head or stomach. Whoever stays on their hot dog the longest wins. You could even throw a tournament and whoever beats the most people at the party can be crowned, wait for it, the top dog.
Of course, when no one wants to play, the four inflatable pieces are still pretty Insta-worthy on their own as floating (not life-saving!) devices. If you’re a vegetarian, though, you might want to stick with some avocado rafts and use a regular ol’ pool noodle to knock your friend off her post.

Would you play this game? How do you think you’d fare? Would you rather just eat a hot dog and watch on the sidelines?
