*Product received* Myrtle Ball
Myrtle Ball is a new revolutionary outdoor and indoor game that is fun for the whole family. We really enjoyed playing it. You can play with 2-4 players and it is scored to 15 points. Players score points by rolling the balls into one of the buckets. The larger bucket is worth 1 point and the smaller bucket is worth 3 points. Points are scored per round, not per turn. There are actually several ways to play so you can just create what works best for you. My daughter always creates her own version of playing every game she has. Myrtle Ball is recommended to play in the sand at the beach but you can play it indoors too like we did. Below are the basic set up instructions.
Step-1. Set up your court.
-Make a space on the hard sand to play on. An 18ft long by 8ft
wide space works great. (Balls will not roll on softer sand)
Step-2. Place you buckets.
- Dig 2 holes in the corner of your court which is closest to the
ocean. Then place the buckets into the holes. (Make sure
buckets are level with the ground and fit tight into the holes)
Step-3. Dig your mote.
- Dig an "L" shaped mote around your court; one side behind
the smaller bucket and one side to the left of the 2 buckets.
Step-4. Build your wall.
- Use the remaining sand to build a wall behind the smaller
bucket and the mote to ensure that the balls will not leave the
Myrtle Ball is in the process of testing a new and improved version for backyards. They are also working closely with manufacturing companies all over the U.S. to have their bucket, balls, and bags custom made. I love products that are made in the U.S.A. I feel like it is very important to buy products and support companies that choose to produce their products in America. Also every year the Myrtle Ball company chooses a charity to sponsor for their Playing for a Purpose event. Last year they did one at a local high school for a child who was diagnosed with leukemia, this year's selection is still undecided. What a great company!
