Monkey Bar
Golf, also called Ladder Golf
A yard
game similar to horse shoes. Players
take turns tossing "monkey tails" at the
monkey bars (or ladder) scoring points
when their monkey tails wrap around the
horizontal bars. For 2 or 4 players.
Items Needed:
How to
Play:
1) Place the
monkey bar targets approximately 25 to
30 feet apart. If playing with a single
target, mark a throwing line about 25 to
30 feet from the target.
2) Alternating turns, two players toss
their monkey tails one at a time at a
target using an underhand throwing
motion, trying to get the monkey tail to
wrap around one of the horizontal monkey
bars.
3) After all the monkey tails are
thrown, the players determine their
scores from the monkey tails still on
the ladder. Any monkey tails that fall
off during the course of play do not
score any points. Each player or team
adds the score from the round to their
total.
4) If four people are playing, the other
two players take alternating turns
tossing the monkey tails back at the
opposite target. If only two people are
playing, they retrieve the monkey tails
and again throw them at a target. The
player or team with the higher score in
the previous round tosses first.
5) Play continues in this manner until
one player or team has earned the
required points to win.
Scoring: There are several variation for
scoring, so players must determine which
method will be used for their game.
Option 1: The top monkey bar is worth 3
points, the middle bar is worth 2
points, and the bottom bar is worth one
point. Any monkey tail hanging to a bar
at the end of a round scores the points
for the bar that it is hanging on. The
first player or team to 21 points wins.
Option 2: This option requires monkey
tails made using pairs of numbered golf
balls where each set contains a monkey
tail with a pair of number one balls, a
tail with a pair of number 2 balls, and
a tail with a pair of number 3 balls.
The top monkey bar is worth 30 points,
the middle bar is worth 20 points, and
the bottom bar is worth 10 points. The
score is determined by multiplying the
points from the bar by the number on the
monkey tail balls. For example, a monkey
tail with a pair of number 2 balls on
the middle bar scores 40 points (20
times 2), and a monkey tail with a pair
of number 3 balls on the bottom bar
scores 30 points (10 times 3). The first
player or team to 500 points wins.
Option 3: Rather than playing as teams,
three or more people can play with each
of the players keeping their own score.
A round is not complete until all of the
players have been able to toss the
monkey tails.
