About Ladder Toss

Ladder toss is a lawn game played by throwing bolas (two balls connected by a string) onto a ladder. The items needed to play are two ladders and a set of three bolas per team. Each ladder has three rungs, each rung scoring a different point value. One common method of scoring is to have the rungs be one, two and three points. In one variety the top is worth 1, middle is 2, and bottom is 3. Points are tallied at the end of each round, after all teams have thrown their bolas. The bolas suspended on the ladder score the points for that rung, often with the goal of getting at least 21 points to win. Another variety of scoring would be 1pt for the bottom rung, 2pts for the middle, 3pts for the top, and if you have a bola on each of the rungs, that's an automatic 10pts. Makes the game move faster, but just as hard. There are a few optional ways to earn bonus points: 1) A tight dangle bonus is when the balls can no longer be wrapped around the horizontal rods.
