This folds up and is super compact and then it simply unfolds and is ready to go!

Wedges × 2

This Chipping Game comes with a left and right wedge.  Can't neglect those lefties out there!

Birdies × 3

Forget about the golf balls, you get birdies with this game!  You will receive 3 (colours may vary)

Bird Launcher

Place the birdie on the Bird Launcher and hit it with the wedge.  Watch it fly!

Matching Sign – optional

Rent this 20" x 36" vinyl sign - just fill in the blanks with a dry erase marker - huge time saver! We recommend you write $5 for 3 birdies; point values of 5 points, 15 points, and 50 points respectively; and the highest score could win green fees + golf cart rental, free golf balls, or driving range gift card.

Description

Golf games are very popular to have at events, and would be considered a staple at a Stag and Doe. You often see putting types of games, and now more prevalent are chipping games. But have you ever seen a chipping game use a birdie? Ever heard of a game called Birds the Word? NOPE! That is why we love this game so much, because it is very unique and we can almost guarantee that nobody else has seen it before, unless they were at a party that rented our game. It is challenging for your guests, but not too hard that it deters them from trying in the first place. We love how it folds up for easy travelling too and is super light weight. Give it a try at your next Fundraiser or Party!

How to Play This Game + Video in action

We have some recommendations that will help you understand how this game is played.  Each player will receive 1-3 birdies, and after each try, you will total up their score. You are obvioulsy aiming for the red target zone which would be worth the most points. The next best thing is to at least get in the black zone, in which they would receive points still but a little lower. If your guest misses completely, then you can either give them 1 point for trying, or a negative number. After they have taken their turn, add up their points and the person that has the highest points will win something at the end of the night. In the event that there is a tie, have a tie breaker tournament at the end of the night.

How to PROFIT with This Game

We have some excellent tips on how to profit with this game, if you are using it at a Fundraiser. We suggest that you charge $5 for 3 birdies, or maybe just $2 a birdie. Add up their points and see who gets the most! Perhaps you can keep track of who get the top 4 scores and later hold a tournament between just the four of them.

How Heavy is this to Transport

A common question is to ask how heavy a product is, so that people know how many others they may need to bring to help lift this into their vehicle. With this product, one person is all you need!  It is very light weight so you will be fine.

How we came up with the Name of the Game

All you youngin’s out there have probably not heard this song before, unless you watched that episode of Family Guy.  CLICK HERE to see what we mean!

But back in 1963, a band called “The Trashmen” created a song called “Surfin Bird – Bird is the Word”, and it was an instant hit!  Here is a sneak peak – Think it’s annoying?  Well it is!  But the guys dance is hilarious and worth a quick peak.  Skip over to 1:08 if you don’t have time to watch the whole thing 😉
