We founded National Yard Games Day to help bring our passion for playing outdoor games to everyone. National Yard Games Day is celebrated the first day of summer each year and we have been testing games all year to bring you the Top 10 Games for National Yard Games Day.
The following games are the games that we found the most fun and had staying power to keep our friends asking if we could play again. There were so many games that were close to making this list, but below are our Top 10 yard games that we know you will enjoy playing in your backyard this summer.
1. Tic Bag Toe
If you love cornhole and Tic Tac Toe then you’ll love that these two games have merged into one family fun game that will keep kids and adults entertained for hours.
Check out our video showcasing this game and then visit TIC BAG TOE to get your own game.
I love frisbee games and the CupCheck game challenges you to knock off the cups while the defender tries to catch the cup before it hits the ground.
Watch our video below and then visit CUPCHECK to get your own game.
3. Pop Darts
This is one of the newest games that has come to market and PopDarts is ultra portable and gives you a wide variety of ways to toss these double sided soft darts. From sticking them on the cornhole board, or the cooler top PopDarts was one of the most surprising and fun games we tested all year.
Watch how we played and then visit POPDARTS to get your own game.
4. OnTop Ball Toss
It is all about how you finish. That is the motto of OnTop Ball Toss. The last bag on top gets all the points. This game is fun to play indoors and outdoors and keeps the pressure going until the last shot.

Cornhole boards are getting warped in the most fun way possible. The WarpHole boards bring an all new way to play the classic game of cornhole.

7. Money Hole
Show me the Money Hole! This all new game has 15 holes for extreme scoring and fun. There is the “money hole” in the back that you have to call it before you shoot it. If you make the money hole then it’s game over.
We let the money bags fly in the video below. You can get your own by visiting MONEY HOLE.
Cornhole, Connect 4 and Plinko have all come together in one fun game: BattleToss. The BattleToss game lets you have an all new challenge with your friends as you each try to connect four of your own color before your opponent.

You know we love frisbee games and KanJam is one of the ultimate frisbee games. I love the slamming aspect of this game where you and your partner can get on a roll and yell out boomshakalaka when you have the ultimate KanJam Slam.

I’m not golfer. Never have been never will be, but PutterBall brings the love of golf to everyone. You putt your way down to clear out your 6 holes before your opponent does for the win.
