13. Plain ol' dice
You’ve never really lived if you haven’t won a fistful of dollar bills on a hot hand.
12. Connect Four
If you’ve never been made to feel intellectually inferior by a friend after a heated game of bartop Connect Four, then you probably haven’t been to enough bars with good games. And unlike Jenga, nothing is lost in the transition to the giant version of this game.
With the rise of Skee-Ball in bars, all those years spent at Chuck E. Cheese's pretending to be chaperoning a birthday party have finally paid off. The immediate downside is how quickly you can burn through dollar bills trying to one-up a chirpy friend on a top-corner-hole-mega-point-hot-streak, but then again you came to this bar to win, didn't you?
10. Air hockey
Anything moving faster than an air hockey puck at a bar is probably dangerous, illegal, or both, which is probably why this game is so freaking addictive. Between the thrill of a solid slap shot, the ear-shattering sound of a puck whacking against the walls, the cool air flowing in your face, and the shame felt when you score a goal on yourself, this one runs you through the sensory and emotional gamut.
