GeneralEmployee Picks: Backyard Games

HotSummerBanner

Summertime is party time, and  here at LuLu*s, we love a good outdoor party game! Check out some of our favorite games and try them out at your next backyard bash!

Games

Bocce Ball

“Summertime means breaking out the bocce ball set and playing casually in the warm evenings. Originating in Italy, this sport is professionally played on crushed oyster shells (so fancy!). If you can’t find a court, it is just as much fun to play on a level field of grass. We dare you to challenge our boss to a game; she’s the one to beat!” – Brittany, Buyer

Never played bocce? Find out how to play here!

Spikeball

“Spikeball is a great way to have fun with your friends anywhere! The portable equipment and simple set up makes it perfect for fun on the go. It’s a quirky mix of volleyball and four square that can be played in pairs. It’s easy to catch on, but definitely a challenge to become a pro!” — Amy, Customer Service

Lean all about spikeball here, then teach your friends!

Cornhole

“My favorite backyard game is cornhole. Growing up in Wisconsin, we called it ‘bags.’ I love playing it at tailgates and BBQs with family and friends. It’s especially fun when my friends and I beat the boys!” — Lauren, Customer Service

Cornhole is fun and easy to learn! Check out the rules here.
