30 (ish) people.
Outside
BBQ
They are bringing a dish to share and their own lawn chairs.

Any ideas of easy outdoor games to make? These are 20-30 year olds and they love games.

I'm trying to come up with a theme without going over-board and/or going broke.

Pinterest, of course, has 17 million ideas and I want to do them all. Cool

We do have a decent sized yard and I will be spraying for mosquitos so we'll be able to be comfortably outside.

Horseshoes
Cornhole
Croquet
Volleyball
Badminton
Whiffle ball
Scavenger hunt (you can get really creative with this...)
Flag football
Bocce
Capture the flag


We have a group of friends who make crazy croquet games with water hazards (sprinklers or kiddie pools), flamingo wickets, and whatnot...sort of like miniature golf, but with a croquet set. Usually rampant "cheating" is involved, too.

I would probably just set up a net for volleyball, have cornhole or horseshoes in another area, and have a croquet or bocce set in a third area. If you want a themed game, you could do that with a scavenger hunt, but as folks are coming and going and eating and chatting, the games will just organically go on with no special attention on your part.

If it's hot and there's no swimming pool, a few super soaker water guns or a bunch of water balloons might be appreciated.

Do you all have cornhole where you are? Hillbilly golf? These are big hits around here. Set out a few cornhole sets and have a tournament and it can last for hours! I like hillbilly golf because it is something that even I can do. I have horrible aim, but can normally hit at least one of the levels.

Thank you for the ideas!

The party is this weekend so I'm in full planning mode and will be shopping today.

Hillbilly golf is ladder golf here and I actually grabbed the set my parents own before they left for Europe.

Cornhole is bean bag toss here and we used to have it .... until my sons used them for skateboard ramps. Laughing Razz

I found a set of lawn dice for $10? and will have that available.

Lawn darts will be available and a neighbor offered their badmitton set.

I had not thought of whiffle ball and I can see that being a blast - our backyard is big enough to handle it too.

I'm contemplating a yard game of twister?

These sound like a blast, Renee! These games plus food... maybe some music... in your beautiful yard -- your guests will have a great time!
