Okay, I’ll be honest, I have a bit of a friendly, competitive streak. I love to play games with my family and friends and when I do, I play to win. If I were to play a round of bocce ball at the Blog Cabin’s amazing court, however, I might be in trouble. I don’t know how I could focus while taking in that view, but I’m always up for a challenge.
I love that the voters chose this timeless game, which dates all the way back to the ancient Egyptians. The court is regulation size and might be a great DIY project for your own backyard. Best of all, bocce is a wonderful activity that many generations are able to play together.
When the Blog Cabin 2014 winner decides to get out of the sun for a little while, they can gather round this classic shuffleboard table. Its ingenious design allows for extra storage, and its castors make it wonderfully mobile. It can be moved over when people want to play, while a few rounds of darts can be enjoyed safely and simultaneously. My kind of party!
And of course, who can forget last year’s custom Grundy cornhole set? This is one of my favorite games to play in nice weather and it’s become more popular every year. If you’re interested in giving it a try, check out this video, where my buddy, Dan Pashman, and I show you how to make your own.
