Washers Game Review

Washers is one of the most popular tossing games, and is also a great game for tailgating season.  With the release of their FOLD-N-GO Washers Game, there’s a really portable option to play some washers on game day. This Washers game from Franklin is probably the most portable game we’ve ever gotten to review, with an 11″ long carrying case!

Played like normal washers, this game is pretty cool.  The washers baskets unfold to be about 12″ wide at their widest diagonal.  The holes unfold to be 4″, which is pretty standard for Washers games.

Packaging: The carrying case is basic, but does exactly what you’d want it to do.

Construction: Made with quality materials, given that it’s a game that can be folded up and taken on the go.  Washers are a nice plastic-type material.  They have a nice weight, and the size is pretty standard at 2.75″ OD and a 1″ ID hole.

Gameplay: Not quite the same as a heavy-duty Washers game, but the basic gameplace is still there.  The weight and size of the washers is really comparable, but the soft sided baskets and holes aren’t quite as effective as a hard sided set.  One major bonus?  They’re WAY quieter than a regular washers game.

Pros: Easy setup, Lightweight, Portable, Fun.  Portable twist on a very popular game.
Cons: Holes unfold a little oval after being flattened in the case.

Overall: The perk is a part of the name, “Fold-N-Go” says it all.  As far as travel games go, this is one of the best offerings we’ve seen.  Same basic game play, but in a much smaller, more portable size.  Franklin’s FOLD-N-GO Washers Game is a really a nice addition to your tailgating toys.
