This Summer's Top Yard Games
March 19, 2021
Ah summer, it's good to see you again. As we start to think about trading in our boots and mittens for tank tops and sunscreen (at least here in the Midwest), we're reminded that no summer is complete without a full line up of outdoor games perfect for the whole family.
With warmer weather and longer days, everyone in the family gravitates outside - finding personal favorite activities in gardening, shooting hoops, mowing the lawn, or cooling off in the pool. And while those are great options, nothing tops a summer full of games and activities that bring your favorite people...together.
Friends. Family. Neighbors that feel like family. We've rounded up our favorite and in our opinion the best outdoor games for all ages - to bring everyone together this summer.
Bring it On Summer 2021
It's no secret that the summer of 2021 has great potential - post pandemic, everyone is itching, not only to get outside, but to do it together. Backyard games are the perfect option to play at home, play at a family reunion, play at a birthday party, or just play yourself.
Night games, patio games, beach games, or party games - here's a look at our favorite classics and some new backyard games you've yet to hear of.
"This one-of-a-kind, new yard game is a cross between tic tac toe, cornhole, darts and more - and the entire family is hooked."
With games, bigger is usually better! This giant tumbling block tower (aka Jenga) is the perfect outdoor game for adults alone, but easily a family favorite as long as you keep an eye out for your littles as blocks tumble.
Cornhole has become the quintessential yard game - for good reason. It's easy to pick up, but for the true pros, it's tough to master. Give your cornhole boards a fresh look this summer with new cornhole board wraps.
Do you remember playing this as a kid? Bring back the classic tug of war. Go for a 12-foot length, which lets you play with as many as four pullers per team. When it comes to a backyard game that's a true staple - this is it.
H-O-R-S-E is a game played by two people on a basketball court. The idea of the game involves matching baskets. The player who makes shots that the opponent does not duplicate, wins the game. You in?
Nothing says classic yard games like Tic Tac Toe. Scratch the paper, take this one out onto the fresh cut lawn. When it comes to top yard games, Tic Tac Toe, three in a row, is top of the list as a fan favorite, and easy for everyone.
New to Summer Yard Games This Year
There is always something to be said for the classic yard games, hands down. Summertime fun comes in all shapes and sizes. Whether at home or at the beach, a good game will make any day, night, or weekend special. And we love a good yard game.
But even the best of the classic yard games can get old if you play the same thing over and over. And having all of the newest yard games at any given moment is not only tough to keep up with, but would take some effort. Tic Tac Toe: $50. Whac-A-Mole: $30. Life Sized Connect Four: $80. Washers: $40. Life Sized Beer Pong: $80. Ring Toss: $40. Basketball Hoop for a rowdy game of H.O.R.S.E.: $250. Darts: $75. Corn Hole: $150. And that’s only a start.
Creating the ultimate backyard game oasis would cost a lot, easily. On top of that, it would take up a lot of space. Hole-E-Moley brings you all the best games – the classics and the latest - in one, durable, yet compact package, with new games added each day, every day, for.ev.er.*
Really, All of Those Games?
Yes, one board. 10+ games (with more to be added infinitely). Up to 6 players. Ideal for in the backyard or inside. And built for hours of fun. You'll find that the Hole-E-Moley games built in can replace or replicate all of our backyard favorites - and more.
Looks Like Cornhole - What Gives...
Hole-E-Moley is a one-of-a-kind electronic bag tossing game with light-up targets and auto-scoring synced to an app on your mobile device! Cornhole yes, because we love that - but oh, so much more.
The Feature That Most People Love
It's hard to pick just one - not from our perspective, but from those who have taken a Hole-E-Moley home or have brought one into the fold of their business to bring in more people but also create a new revenue source: auto-scoring means cheaters never prosper! (There are a lot of features we hear people love, what's yours?)
