Some of us were born with a competitive spirit.
It will grow on others over time. Either way, when we see an opportunity to finish first, score the highest, or know the most, it stokes that fire. Bringing your all to compete is a wise move.
Here are spots in Myrtle Beach you can play trivia, toss darts, try axe throwing — whatever your game.
Are you cool as ice with the match on the line? Hit the bulls-eye when you’re vacationing on the Grand Strand.
WHERE TO PLAY: Magoos Sports & Spirits. This classic sports pub has the boards, the TVs, and the pool tables to make for a memorable evening out. You’ll find other dart players, nicely priced drinks, and delicious wings.
ADVICE: Perfect your stance. Only your arm, forearm, and wrist should move for an accurate throw. Your body should remain still throughout the throw.
It takes discipline to know something about everything. And a voracious appetite for learning. Stack your brain up against the rest!
WHERE TO PLAY: Bumstead’s Pub. Another traditional sports bar, with a friendly atmosphere and many players. Nosh on excellent brain food while you play, and don’t forget to keep your cool with a cold beer.
ADVICE: Have fun. Don’t run wild trying to dominate the world. Enjoy the challenge, make a new friend, and support the bar by ordering a drink.
The latest craze has made it to the beach. Let your barbarian side out and sling sharp objects at the target!
WHERE TO PLAY: Jack Axe Throwing Myrtle Beach. If it’s your first time, no problem. They’ll show you how to throw like a lumberjack first. Book a time at locations in Myrtle Beach and North Myrtle.
ADVICE: Pull the axe back past your ear, perpendicular to the ground. Follow through like a dart! Let go when the handle is straight up and down.
Knocking a sphere into a hole with another sphere? Playing pool is so much more than that. This sport is one of the classics.
WHERE TO PLAY: 810 Billiards & Bowling – The Market Common. You’ll love the relaxed atmosphere here. Get special pricing on weekdays, and be sure to swing by for happy hour. It’s a great place for a break while you shop!
ADVICE: Develop a pre-shot routine. Use the time before your shot to survey the table, chalk your cue, and personalize your approach.
The beauty of cornhole (or bags) is that you can take on the challenge while holding a cold beer in the other hand.
WHERE TO PLAY: RipTydz Oceanfront Grille & Rooftop Bar. Hit the roof and throw the bags for cornhole and other games. RipTydz hosts tournaments, too, and you can’t beat the brews and views here, either.
ADVICE: Find a method that works for you. Some step with the opposite foot than their throwing hand, and others throw from a standstill. Experiment.
