Ring Toss

  • Rope
  • Tape
  • Wooden stakes, sticks or a similar object that can be secured in the ground or used as a target

The object of the game is to be the first player or team to reach an agreed-upon total score: usually 50 to 100 points. The rings and stakes can be made using simple materials found around the house or can be bought at a local toy store. You will need four or eight rings (half one color, half another), two stakes or similar object, and a score sheet. The game can be played between two people or in teams.

To play, arrange the stakes six or more feet apart. Flip a coin to see who goes first. Each player/team throws their chosen color of rings at the opposite stake. Players/teams alternate turns, throwing one ring at a time until all rings have been thrown. Score 5 points for each ringer and 3 points for any ring touching the stake, and score one point for a ring within 6" of the stake and closer than an opponent's ring. Pick up the rings and continue playing until one player/team reaches the target score.
