Ultimate Lawn Games (Boccee Ball, Ladder Ball, Bean bag toss) and why we love lawn games

Everything You Need to Know About Three Popular Lawn Games

Summer is officially here, and it's time to get out and enjoy the outdoors. Lawn games have been around for years and provide a safe, easy way to entertain a whole group of people, no matter what their ages are. This article will go over three of the most popular lawn games and how to play them. They will provide hours of fun all summer long. 

Bocce Ball

Bocce ball has been around for decades. You can have up to eight people per game, on teams of one, two, or four. You get a set number of balls depending on how many people are on a team. A team of one has four balls, a team of two has two balls, and a team of four gets one ball each. When you set up your bocce ball game, you set up a four-foot line, a ten-foot line, and a center line. There should be a four and ten-foot line on each side of the center line. There is jack that you toss and the objective is to get it over the center line, but not further than the four-foot line. After the jack is in position, the teams alternate throwing the bocce ball. You want to get it as close to the jack as possible, or to move your opponent's ball further away. You score by having your ball closest to the jack at the end of the round, and the game is played until 12 points are reached.


Ladder Ball

Ladder ball is a lawn game that can be played with up to four people per game. You set up the ladder, and each team gets a bola. You stand fifteen feet away from the ladder and toss the bola. The object is to get your bola to wrapped around one of the three ladder rungs. The top rung is worth three points, the second rung is worth two points, and the final rung is worth one point. You must throw the bolas in groups of three before the next player can go. The object is to be the first team to get to 21 points.


Bean Bag Toss

This game is played by teams of two to four per game, up to eight people. You set two platforms up with a hole in the end and then stand a predetermined distance back. There are two different colors of bean bags, and each team gets a color. The object is to get your bean bag into the other team's platform. Any bag that goes through the hole is worth three points, and any bag left on the board is worth one point. You want to be the first team to get to 21 to win, and you have to get exactly to 21. If you go over, you have to wait for your next turn to try for 21 points. 

Lawn games are important for family or friends to be able to bond and have fun. They provide an easy way to entertain a group of people, and they allow you to get outside into the gorgeous summer weather. They're versatile, and they can be used almost anywhere, with two or more people.
