Cornhole

Cornhole

A classic BBQ party game is cornhole. All you need is a cornhole set, some friends, and a little backyard space. This can be played one-on-one or in teams. The game is pretty simple: every sandbag that shoots through the hole is rewarded with 3 points while each sandbag on the platform negates a point. This is a raise to 21 points!

Horseshoe

Horseshoe

Another throwing game in the list is the horseshoe. All you need are 4 horseshoes and a couple of stakes to play. Place the stakes 40 feet apart but you may adjust depending on your backyard’s size. 

You win 3 points if you ring the horseshoe around the stake and a point if it ends up within 6 inches around the stake. Traditionally, this game is a raise to 20 points, but you can set your own.

Washer toss

Somewhat similar to the two previous games is the washer toss wherein your goal is to have the washer land in the center cup. That will earn you 3 points. You also get a point for each washer that lands within the whole box. Overall, players raise up to 21 points.

You could either get a washer toss set from Amazon or create one yourself! You only need a couple of washer pits with a cup or a hole in the middle and some washers.

Ladder toss

It was said that this game actually was derived from cowboys in the wild west since they would throw snakes at fences or branches to earn points. This game is also known as hillbilly golf, ladder golf, ball rope, and ladder ball. The game requires a three-tier ladder and three bolas. The goal here is to aim for the top tier since that will give you three points, the second tier two points, and the bottom tier one point.

Lawn darts

This is basically wall darts but in your backyard which is why it’s called lawn darts. You can even purchase some glow in the dark dart sets to make it even more exciting! All you need are lawn darts and a set of target rings.

Kan Jam

Kan Jam

Kan jam is a modified frisbee but you aim at a target instead. In fact, this is also known as garbage can frisbee. What happens is your partner should stand just behind the can to help you hit it and the goal is to get 21 points. You get a point every time the can is hit! But if your disc lands exactly inside the front slot, you win instantly!

Bottle Bash

Bottle Bash

This game is as simple as tossing a frisbee with the goal to knock the bottle off of a pole. This game can be played with 2 or 4 players with one player tossing and the other person trying to catch the disc and bottle before it comes into contact with the ground. If the bottle hits the ground, you earn 2 points while if the frisbee hits the ground, you get a point. As per usual, this is a raise to 21 points.

Kubb

Kubb has been surprisingly around longer than croquet or even golf. Here, players take turns throwing sticks at the opponents’ blocks. You should be wise in playing this game because you only have limited sticks you can toss.

Bocce ball

Bocce ball is bowling and skeeball combined into one game. This is great especially if some members of the group aren’t necessarily active. 

The pallino is the smallest ball and is thrown first. This serves as the marker. The first player will throw the ball aiming to take it as close to the pallino as possible. Then, the rest of the players do the same. The thrower that takes the ball closest to the pallino wins the round and is then called as the “in” team.

The “in” team earns points every time the ball is thrown closer to the pallino compared to the ball of the opponent. This is a raise to 13 points!
