Giant Tumbling Timbers
Also known as “Giant Jenga”, this stacking game is a crowd pleaser. At each player’s turn, they remove a block from the stack and place it on top without making it all topple over. As the game goes on, the stack grows higher and higher and can even get up to 4 feet tall! It’s designed for 2 or more players, so even large groups can all play at the same time. We also offer the game in a raw wood or a stained option to match any wedding décor.
Giant 4 Connect in a Row
Our blown-up version of your favorite tabletop game, is great for guests looking for a game involving strategy and skill. Players take turns dropping their red or blue coins into the slots. The first player to line up 4 coins horizontally, vertically or diagonally wins.
Although it has many names such as “bean bag toss” or “bags”, we call it Cornhole, because it was originally played using bags filled with corn. The official way to play is to have two teams of two stand opposite each other and try to throw their beanbags into the hole on the opposite board. We’ve also seen many a toddler enjoy the game making up a variety of new rules and moves, and it’s equally enjoyable. YardGames.com offers a variety customized cornhole boards to seamlessly blend with any wedding theme or personality.
This lesser known Scandinavian lawn game has recently become a sensation at breweries and hipster gatherings across the country. Teams of any size stand opposite each other and toss wooden dowels at the other team’s blocks, called kubbs. Although there are a few more rules than this, the goal is to knock down all of the opposing team’s kubbs and then take down the king in the middle. But be forewarned; this outdoor wedding game is addicting and your guests may be clamoring to play it all night.
