National Backyard Game Week

Memorial Day Weekend is kind of the kickoff to the camping/bbqing/boating and anything else you do over the summer months and outdoor backyard games are a must. So I guess you could say this weekend is the official kick-off to the backyard gaming season. That’s why someone thought it would be genius to nominate this week as Backyard Games Week.

Here are some of my favorite drinki… I mean backyard games that I enjoy each and every summer.

 


Cups(Stick’s N Cups) – This game consists of 4 skinny sticks such as PVC pipes stuck into the ground with ‘Red Solo Cups’ turned upside down on top of the poles. Then the fun begins as each team tosses a frisbee to see which team can knock off the cups and get the most points. There are different types of rules so check with your league official.

Washers(Washo) -I love this game because it again has to do with aim and teamwork. You can also play the game as a solo without a partner but it’s funner when you have someone to blame your mistakes on. I suggest putting either money or how many beers the losing team needs to chug on the line so the competitive spirit stays throughout the game.

Ladder Ball – This is a newer game that I just picked up last year and it’s addicting. It’s a perfect game for the whole family and fits pretty much anywhere in the camper when heading out for the weekend.
