By Space Coast Daily // June 15, 2021
It’s summer time, and that means plenty of celebrations with friends and family across the season, with the barbecue lit, drinks in the cooler and plenty of games to play.
It’s the perfect time for enjoying games, whether board or garden and if you’re planning a summer party in your garden, then here are our top four to enjoy…
Bingo has taken the world by storm over the last year with many online bingo sites welcoming hundreds of new players. However, it’s also the perfect DIY game for enjoying in the garden, no matter how many players you have.
All you need to do is create some bingo cards, and have a random system to be able to draw numbers and you’ve got a completely inclusive game that everyone can enjoy.
If you fancy ramping up the competition with a game of skill that also offers tons of fun, then consider cornhole. This is a game in which players must take turns in throwing bean bags through a board with a hole at the far end.
The rules are simple, you earn three points for getting the ball through the hole, while one point is scored if the bag lands on the board. The first to 21 wins the game, and it can be played in teams or individually.
Jenga is one of the world’s best loved games and it’s gone from dining tables to being enjoyed in ‘giant’ form in the garden. There are tons of sets on Amazon, ideal for the garden and it’s a game that is perfect for the entire family.
A flat surface is of course required, but that doesn’t matter if it’s a patio or lawn and it’s always a huge hit while a party is in full flow.
Bocce, or boules, is loved all over the world and is a fun lawn game to enjoy. The game itself actually dates all the way back to the Roman Empire and has since spread around the world, particularly in the USA and South America.
The game can be played as a two-player game or in teams of two and the aim is to bowl balls and get closest to a smaller ball named the jack. The game is usually played up to a score of 13 points, with the team with the closest ball to the jack earning points on each go.
They will not only score a point for the closest, but then any other balls that are closer to the jack than an opponent. It can be a tense game, but one that always gets the competitive spirit going at a garden party.
