Top Toss

This recreational family game is a fun and safe alternative to horse shoes. Players stand 25 feet from the Top Toss tower and take turns tossing their colored Bolo Balls (two small rubber balls attached by a length of rope) in the hopes of scoring points by wrapping them around one of the three horizontal rungs of the tower. The smallest top rung is worth 3 points, the middle worth 2 and the longer bottom rung worth 1 point, so precision counts!  Made of sturdy metal bars and hard plastic connector pieces, the Top Toss tower is ready to withstand your wildest throws. So get your swinging arm ready and aim for that top bar, because your back yard is about to become the battle ground for some serious family fun. (Hearthsong, $29.98)
