The European Bin Bag Game


As you may know, I’ve recently learned to snowboard with The Hofnar Experience. You can read more about that here.

Whilst away, my friend, Christie, introduced me to a new game. It sounded ridiculous, but is actually a surprising amount of fun if you’re in to this kind of thing. It’s called

The Bin Bag Game

If there is one thing the Europeans love, especially when on the slopes, it’s a shiny black jacket, which is what the game is based upon.

In short, whenever you see someone in a black shiny jacket like this:

shiny black European coatYou must point and shout (or just whisper to be more polite) “BIN BAG” or in French “sac de poubelle.”

The coat must be black and it must be shiny, otherwise, it’s not a bin bag. You might need to assign an¬†adjudicator, as some people will shout big bag at anything, as we discovered. You might want to take points off for false declarations too.
