Do you love bar games?

I mean, do you really love bar games?

Yup, we do too. So much that we decided to create this compendium of bar game knowledge called Bar Games 101. 

Bar Games 101 is an online resource for learning how to play and enjoy classic bar games like pool, darts, shuffleboard, foosball and more (see below).

These are the games that have stood the test of time; classic bar games that will always be fun.

And these games do not rely on technology. They’ve been played for generations. And, for the most part, the game formats, rules and strategies have stayed the same.

The best bar games are great for all levels of competition, from complete novice to professional status.

Games like this can create a more engaging and social atmosphere among friends and strangers alike.

Until Bar Games 101, there has not been a single online destination devoted exclusively to teaching the basics of our favorite bar games.

But, as we mentioned, we’re kind of obsessed with this stuff. 

But it’s not just about the conventional games played in a bar.

We also feature plenty new games that can be played indoors, outdoors, and pretty much everywhere in between, including drinking games, cards and dice games, lawn games, twists on classic family games, and retro games (think classic board games and arcade games).

With all the possible games to learn about, hopefully we can make your time at the bar or at home in your game room even more fun, while inspiring some good ‘ol friendly competition along the way.
