Camp games

Let's hear your best camp games, from cribbage to drunken kayak jousting, everybody has something to keep the troops sane during down time in camp.

I'm a fan of the standards - horseshoes, bags, bocce, etc, but always looking for something new and interesting. I just tossed together a giant yahtzee set (just add bucket) for a Smith trip next week, and I'm looking for more ideas.


Cheers!

Can jam cheap to buy the cans and they lay flat and all you need is the Frisbee. and polish horseshoes, all you need is two lengths of pvc pipe a Frisbee and some beers.

+1 on Polish Horseshoe's, my favorite river game.
Ammo can tug of war
On lay over days or long evenings in the wall tent on winter trips, we'll play Settlers of Catan
And of course Bocce, I highly recommend the steel balls

Is that Pine bar on the lower Salmon, by chance?

Kubb

I'm a big fan of Kubb. I call it Swedish logs.

A table saw and a couple of 4x4s is all you need. Not the most compact, but I took it down Deso a few years back.

Beer Can Golf - Bring a couple old goodwill golf club irons, like a 7 or a 5 iron. Each player gets their own crushed beer or soda can. Someone chooses a target, like a tree trunk or a particular shrub or a tent or something, and all players take turns hitting their can towards the target, trying to hit in in as few tries as possible.

Great thread idea, I'll play. We've tried most of the above ideas plus a few more, but these three end up being the go-to staples of every trip:

Frisbee golf - everyone grabs a frisbee and a drink, someone picks a "hole" (rock, tree, tent, whatever) and a route to get there (left around that tree...), low score picks the next hole. Must always keep an active beverage in your non-tossing hand.

Bocce - I just picked up a lightweight set that comes in a small bag from REI. Nothing to break like the standard sets we've used that crack when they hit rocks, small, and easy to pack. It kept 4 kids busy for hours chasing little balls around the riverbank on the Owyhee last weekend.

Farkle - Simple rules and all you need are five dice. Strategy isn't about winning, but making sure you aren't the loser. Loser has to do some task that no one wants to do. One on one farkle sessions can also be used as an alternative to roshambo or coin tossing.
