Best Outdoor Games

From the time we were little kids playing outside until dusk, curfew, or whenever Mom called us home, we have loved to pass time outside playing a variety of games ranging from the well structured football games to the free-wheeling games of tag or cops and robbers. Even as adults, playing outdoor games is something to look forward to, although it seems necessary to schedule such events, purchase the necessary equipment, and form leagues.

Outdoor games have always been a great way to make friends, spend time with people, get some exercise, and otherwise enjoy being in the open world and not cooped up inside. This list is for you to rank the best, most entertaining, and all around most enjoyable outdoor games.
