We took our first camping trip of the summer over Memorial Day weekend. We roasted marshmallows for S’mores over a campfire, skipped rocks in the river, went fishing, rode bikes, did some exploring and my oldest two even learned some target practice with a BB gun. When I asked my eight year old what his favorite part of the weekend was, he said it was playing “backyard games”. One of the families we were with had brought a washer toss game and he had so much fun playing it, he asked if we could get one of our own. As luck would have it, Viva Sol offered me their own version of Washer Toss for my review.
It’s the last week of school, baseball is over and there’s no homework. Plus, the sun has been blessing us with gorgeous weather this week. Today was the perfect day for a round of Washer Toss. This version is slightly different than the one we played. You get 4 washers instead of 3. There are two sets of targets, each with a heavy duty PVC scoring ring and black felt landing surface with foam backing. If your washer lands inside the ring it’s worth 3 points. If it lands outside of it but still within the target box it’s worth one point. The object of the game is to be the first team or player to reach 21 points exactly.
I love the way this set is packaged. The targets latch together with oil rubbed metal latches and can be carried via the heavy duty hemp rope handles. The targets themselves are made with all wood with a poplar veneer and walnut finish for a really nice look. The molded washers have built in bottle openers!
The set says it’s for ages 12+ . The targets are supposed to be set 20 feet apart but you can always adjust that for your player’s skill level. My kids enjoy playing it — I think it’s a great family game!
The NEW Viva Sol games including Washer Toss transform classic outdoor games into beautiful works of craftsmanship and artistry. Viva Sol translates to “Long Live the Sun” as these time-honored hand toss games will provide hours of fun for family and friends to enjoy
