We recently purchased Ladderball after playing it at my aunt's house.
This is a great family game for all ages. The younger kids in the family can easily play it with the grandparents in the family.
The game includes 2 goal uprights, 3 white bolas, 3 blue bolas and a carrying bag.
This game is not complicated and it is very easy to learn. The object is to throw your bolas one at a time towards the opposite goal upright. You want to try to have your bola land on one of the rungs.
There are 3 rungs and each rung is worth a point, 1, 2 or 3 points.
The object is to reach 21 points exactly before your opponent.
You can also try to knock off your opponent's bolas which will cause them to lose those points.
You may play this as a two person game or in two different teams.
This really is a great lawn family game. When my whole family is together it is a lot of fun and we have a lot of laughs.
I will admit sometimes it can be tricky getting the bola on the rungs, but that is what makes it fun.
Here is my only con, although the set up is easy you do have to take it all down and put it back up again if you are going to transport it.
It really isn't a huge deal, but it would be nice if there was a way it just folded down in one piece.
For the most part we just leave it put together and store it in our garage and just carry it outside when we want to play it.
When we are taking it somewhere, like a family get together, we just tear it apart and put it back together when we arrive at our destination.
I think every family should have a Ladderball. They are getting very popular up here it seems. There are many different brands and all range in different prices, so shop around. The reason we got a more expensive one is a lot of stores were sold out of the cheaper models.
