Tough to beat lawn darts, but cornhole comes close. Plus you can play it anywhere. Bocce and horse shoes also good times.

Does anybody play croquet anymore? It was pretty much a staple at our family reunions growing up in IN/MI

My friends play it here in Minneapolis. Croquet and Bocce Ball are more popular with them than "bags" or ladder golf. We'll play the latter if we're drinking all day, which is just rare, nowadays (since most of us are married and some of us have kids).

The only yard games I use to play arn't really yard games. Football, frisbee, dodge ball, wrestling, vollyball, and various other made up games. I just realized how much I miss being a kid . I have played bocce ball and horseshoes in my yard a couple of times but they wern't as fun.

Ha, thanks for the explanation.

I've only ever heard the term used to mean you know what.

We used to play in our yard in NJ, too, when I was a kid (1960's).

When we have some parties I set op the mega-monster croquet course. 3 croquet sets over an acre with obstacles.
Usually takes a few hours for one game.
make sure you have plenty of beer.
