The yard is cleaned up, the Jack & Betty are in the house, the grill has food sizzling and we’re ready for a little competition with the friends this Memorial Day. There’s nothing better than challenging your friends to a cornhole duel for an afternoon cookout that turns into an evening of fun!
That’s why Ben & I LOVE playing backyard games. Here are our FAVES…
You can’t beat a classic! Not only is cornhole a universally appealing game, it’s also easy to teach new or young players – less time teaching, more time playing. Plus, this set features a stars and stripes design that is perfect for your Memorial Day cookout and other events all summer long. Pull it out again later in the summer for the Fourth of July!
A croquet set is a summertime staple for backyards large and small. Designed for 2-6 players, we especially like how this set features hardwood mallets with soft rubber grips for comfort. It even comes with a complete croquet rulebook, perfect for new players or rusty ones.
If you’re looking for a new backyard challenge, this ladderball game fits the bill. Friends and family will appreciate the easy learning curve to this game, but the extra skill involved to getting the golf game tosses around the ladders.
BTW, we are fierce competitors….so bring it ON!
