Classic Lawn Games 101

• Ladder Golf: Wrap your team's golf ball "bolas" around ladder steps, the higher the better.
• Blind Man's Bluff: When the blindfolded player stops spinning, the other players must freeze in place and call out to him or her until the blindfolded player tags another.
• Wiffle Ball: Like baseball, but with a well-ventilated ball.
• Molkky: Finnish throwing game: Toss a peg to knock down the pins, or "skittles," and score high.
