Can these games be played only in my backyard?

Of course not!! We called our website Backyard Games because for us this is where the fun of playing games with friends and family began, in the backyard.  Many of the games we list on our website can be played not only in your backyard, but at the park, while camping, at the beach, at a BBQ, or even at events like weddings!

Top Games

Spikeball and Kan Jam are our personal favorite games but this is a very difficult question to ask. Depending on the amount of people, occasion, or physical abilities of everyone involved there is a game for everyone. Please see our Top 5 Backyard Games or Complete List of 63+ of the best outdoor games.

What are the best Beach games?

Some of the games that are normally played in the backyard such as badminton or bocce is harder to play in deep sand. With this we created a lists for both beach games for kids and beach games for adults for you to view.

The best games for kids ages 5-14 needed a full section of its own. The Outdoor Kids Games has an entire section where you can see Beach Games, Birthday Games, as well as Backyard Games and Toys.

What are the best drinking games?

We like active drinking games! In fact we have turned many of our favourite games like KanJam into CanSlam (get it) as well as mandatory hydrate breaks in Spikeball. We have created many game variations where playing with a beer in hand is mandatory. Here is the full Drinking Category Page for your convenience.
