Ladder Toss

Ladder toss, also known as bolo toss is a fun camping game that was introduced to me a few years ago at a friends pig roast. It consists of a frame that resembles a ladder and two sets of three bolos that are made form two golf balls attached to either end of a piece of rope or shoe string.

The game is played by two or more people standing about 15 feet form the ladder and each taking turns throwing all three of their bolos at the 3 ladder steps. You can move the throwing line closer if you are playing with children.

After everyone has thrown their bolos, only those bolos that are wrapped around, or hanging from one of the ladder steps can be eligible for scoring points.

If one of the bolos thrown by the second player lands on the same ladder step of one of the bolos thrown by the first player, then no points are given for the bolos on that ladder step.

The bottom step counts for one point, two points for the center step and three points if your bolo ends up on the top step. The winner is the first person or team that reaches 21.
