8 Backyard Games for the Perfect Summer Party

Giant Connect 4 Game Rental

It’s really getting hot. Outside you get a whiff of someone’s barbecue, a nice cold beer sits in your hand and not too far away, a neighbor is playing Margaritaville.  Ah, the sounds, smells and feel of Summer are here!

There’s really nothing better than relaxing in your backyard with friends and family. Fed up off bean bag toss and bocce ball?  Here are our favorite summer backyard games:

Giant Connect 4

There’s no such thing as playing just one game of Connect 4… you know that, right?  Get ready for an epic battle to become the reigning Connect 4 champion.

Giant Jenga

Easy does it….  Whatever you do, don’t be the one to knock the tower down!  Watch in suspense as your guests take turns removing a block from the leaning tower of Jenga!  It’s a great way to break the ice if you have a lot of people at your party that don’t know one another.

Giant Kerplunk

Remember this game from the 70s and 80s?  Take turns removing a single straw from the tube while trying to minimize the number of marbles that fall through.

Potato Sack Race

This was a classic at school sports days.  Grab a potato sack, get in and go!  First person to cross the finish line wins. Simple and hilariously fun!

LED Corn Hole

Even when the Sun starts to go down, the outdoor games do not need to stop. Our LED version of the classic bean bag toss is really popular. We can customize the LED colors to whatever combination you would like!

LED Tic Tac Toe

If you like the LED games, try tic tac toe too!  This is one of the oldest games invented. An early variation of tic-tac-toe was played in the Roman Empire, around the first century BC. It was called terni lapilli (three pebbles at a time).

Beer Pong Table

This is a party favorite!  Did you know that Beer Pong originated in the 70’s by Bucknell University and was originally called throw pong?

Water Wars Balloon Battle

Drop a water balloon into catapult; pull down the handle, aim and fire. Your water bomb soars high through the air and comes crashing down on your opponent’s battle station. Kaboom!
