Games for the Pool: Tugboat Tug-of-War
What you need: Two air mattresses and a rope (at least 10 feet long).
How to play: Choose a pair of players from each team, designating one the “captain” and one the “tug.” Each captain sits atop an air mattress, holding one end of the rope, while the tug grasps the outer edge of the mattress and acts as the propeller, pulling the captain and mattress away from the other team. The first captain to drop the rope, topple into the water, or be pulled to the opposite side of the pool loses the game.
