This is one of the silliest things I’ve seen, and I love it! If you enjoy Foosball but don’t have a table, ‘Weenieball’ is here for you and it’s easy to set up. Since football season is over, this is a great way to entertain yourself and your friends.

According to FoodBeast, Atlanta-based artist and creative director Pablo Rochat came up with the idea for this game. He posted a video on his Instagram page, and it’s now going viral. So far Rochat’s video of the game has snagged over 15 million views.

In order to play ‘Weenieball’ you’ll need hotdogs, aluminum foil, metal skewers, and a grill.¬†You skewer your hotdogs and place them horizontally across the grill, so they look like men on a Foosball table. Take a piece of aluminum foil and ball it up. Grab your friends and play! And the best part is all of your players are edible after the game ends. Brilliant!

Bratwursts would make ‘beefier’ players and would be great if you have a big grill. Just a thought if you’re already planning some summer festivities.

If you have lots of folks over for the summer or have a big Memorial Day bash, this is the perfect game! I’m not saying it’ll take the place of beer pong, but it’s a great addition! And if you have kids or grandkids, they’ll love this game. Especially since they can eat the players when they’re done playing.
