Have you ever played outdoor versions of indoor games? Somehow a Giant Medieval Chess Set can turn a two-player game into a team sport. Granted, not everyone has the space to have a 285-kilogram set in their backyard, but there are plenty of outdoor lawn games that can turn a typical BBQ/ party in your backyard with the family and friends into a veritable event. They also work really well to keep the kids entertained during those interminable summer holidays. Read on for a few ideas on how to add some friendly competition to your time spent out in the sun.
Hop Scotch Bean Bag Game
The Hop Scotch Bean Bag Game is perfect for active adults and kids alike. The washable vinyl mat means it’s easy to keep clean even if the weather gets a little muddy. Easily foldable, you can carry it where you go.
Special tip: Make sure you have a few kids on your team if you want to win.
(Not advisable when paired with beer).
Bocce Backyard Set
Bocce, aka Pétanque, is a classic game that you can play on mud, lawn, or sand. The object of the game is to get the larger balls as close to the little one as possible. The team that gets the closest wins. Sounds easy, right? It’s simple to play and fun for all. Try it in an adult-only setting with a few summer cocktails and let us know what you think.
Spikeball Pro Set
This modern classic has all the fun of dodgeball, basketball, and volleyball without any of the pain. Spikeball is a great game to keep the activity levels up as you dodge and dive around the net to try and get the ball in the center. It’s so popular that you’ll find a ton of videos of the best tactics to use online. Easily portable, you can take it with you on all your adventures. One-on-one or two versus two, this game is ridiculously fun for all ages.
Well, this game needs no introduction. A giant-sized Connect Four or Giant 4 game is a great way to soak in the sun while taking the indoors out. All you need to do is get four chips of your colour in a row before your opponent does.
