Our friends Charles and Noelle have monthly game nights. They always invite people to use the hot tub as well, but nobody ever does, because it isn't very compatible with gaming... or is it?! I thought I'd get some help coming up with waterproof games that you could reasonably stick on a floating platform thing in the middle of the hot tub, and play with 4+ people.

The cards aren't just plastic-coated, but solid (and clear) plastic. No problem playing this in the hot tub. Though they are a little slippery and need to stack neatly, so the slight rocking of the platform could be a minor problem.

The only game designed for the hot tub I could find on BGG - and NOT the kind of game I had in mind. (Not a good group game for this crowd, methinks.)

again there are see-through plastic cards involved. The game itself plays like UNO with a twist, but is quite fun.

Cinq-O

All Plastic pieces/parts that can be played most anywhere and then simply rinsed off. Very portable too.

Cinq-O can be found wherever UNO is sold.

Poker... and any card game that uses a standard deck as there are many plastic decks available.

Well, I guess if you just can't stop them from heading for the hot tub, this might float - as long as you don't blow it

Every bit of this game is plastic or rubber. You'll need a nice sized tub though, since you need 6 players.

Here's one you can actually still GET in stores! For scoring, just use a diver's slate to write on...what, doesn't EVERYONE have one?

Ok, so it's for 2 players (supposedly expandable to more), but it's all plastic!!
