7 Great Outdoor Games for You and Your Friends


These times can be particularly hard for everyone. We’ve grown more accustomed to staying inside, socially distancing, and entirely not seeing our family and friends for a long time. It made us become dependent on our phones for fun and just endlessly scrolling on social media. Now that times are getting better, it is time to plan to go out and have fun under the sun (or any weather condition!) If you are looking for something fun to do, you are in the right place.

Take a look at these seven great outdoor games you can try with your friends.


Airsoft is a quickly growing hobby. One top reason aside from its cool factor is this game’s ability to stimulate all of our senses and valuable skills. Through playing airsoft, you become patient and persevere. You use your problem-solving and critical thinking skills. Moreover, you concentrate, strategize and take charge. The only important thing you need is the Best Airsoft Rifle and protective gear. In choosing your weapon, you have to consider the power, velocity, range, and material.

Choose carefully as the weapon you choose will hugely determine how well you will do in the game, and you will also be using them for a long time. You should have a full/half face mask, helmet, safety pads, and gloves for protection gear. After buying a weapon of your choice, you can build up other essentials such as bags, cases, and ghillie suits.


If your whole squad is bored of sitting inside watching Netflix all the time, Frisbee is an excellent game to get you up and moving. This game will help develop your fundamental motor skills like running, leaping, and jumping. Tossing a disc back and forth may sound boring at first, but you can see that it is very enjoyable if you try.

It is non-contact, which is perfect for the current situation. It is self-refereed, and you don’t need anything aside from the Frisbee itself. It is a fantastic cardio workout, a way to train hand and eye coordination, and an entertaining game to play outdoors with your friends.


Archery is an outdoor game that you can play anytime with your friends. You can play it at your own pace and keep score. If you and your friends are competitive or just want to do it for fun, it certainly can be done. Like airsoft, all you need to do is to get the “weapon,” which is a bow and arrow in archery.

It is a great hobby to play with your friends and a great sport you can play professionally. Furthermore, it helps build confidence and self-esteem. You can improve your focus and patience through this game.


Go Kart race tracks are all over the country. You might have already driven past them but never give a thought to try because it looks intimidating. However, go-kart racing is a perfect bonding moment to make new memories with your friends. They are applicable for people of all ages and require no previous driving experience. As a matter of fact, it can be a fun driving experience for first-timers. Moreover, it promotes safe driving by paying attention to speed, surroundings, and navigation control.

If you want to try something exciting and are willing to pay a few bucks for it, then you should try go-karting. A single race can cost $15-$30, small out for the adrenaline rush it can bring.

Capture the Flag

An old but gold game you should try is “capture the flag.” It is a traditional outdoor game that a large group of friends can play. The objective is to steal the opposing team’s flag and bring it to your base. This game requires a strategic plan and great teamwork.

This classic outdoor game is all about teamwork. You can play it quickly or make it a long battle, depending on how slick the two teams will be. Before playing, ensure that you clear the area of danger and set the rules so there is no confusion and accidents during the game. The best part? You can use anything as a flag!

Outdoor Giant Jenga

Do you want to play Jenga, but you have shaky hands? Or you want to play, but you are finding it hard because it is so cramped and can’t concentrate? If yes is your answer to both, then outdoor giant Jenga is perfect for you. Giant Jenga is a new and improved massive version of the classic Jenga we play indoors.

The blocks are eight times bigger than the regular Jenga blocks. You just have to be careful playing them because they create bigger build-ups so you have to expect bigger crashes too. You can easily buy them online for $100 or more or create and DIY them on your own. It is fun to play and exciting to watch!

Beer Pong

Everyone in the country (or world) must have played or seen someone playing beer pong. It is a great game to play outdoors on barbecue nights or parties. If you want to make it more exciting, you can use trash cans or big buckets instead of small cups. Beer pong is a simple game that will make everyone occupied all day and night. You can leave out the drinking portion and make it a shooting contest if you want to play with children or don’t want to drink alcoholic beverages. Instead, you can do truth or dare for every ball you’ve shot or missed.

Spending time outside is great for your health and your relationships. By trying all these games stated, you can leave a more active lifestyle and create long-lasting friendships. Also, you can quickly de-stress by being outdoors. You don’t need to spend a lot of money or go somewhere to do most of this. Spice it up by preparing some food and drinks to have in between games. Get up, get moving and start creating beautiful memories that you will remember for the rest of your life.
