Blongo Ball

Our favorite backyard/beach game is Blongo Ball. I found it at Costco several years ago and haven't seen it there since.

I have ordered them at though for Christmas gifts for people. You could probably easily make your own too with a little PVC pipe and some golf balls!

We took it with us down to the beach and had fun playing it. It was quite a conversation piece with people on the beach too - wondering what it was and how you played it.
One person asked if we were setting up a course for dog jumping!

Four people can play at one time. You throw the two golf balls which are attached by a piece of rope and try and wrap it around the pvc pipe - there are three levels of pipe and each one is worth a different amount of points. You win when you reach 21 points exactly. You can't go over.

Blongo Ball is fun!

we've played this game for years in our family! But we call it "dingle balls." We made the things ourselves! Love it!

Annalece - I think I like your name better. We may just have to rename ours! How's Jackson Hole!?
