Bocce, or Italian lawn bowling, is one of the most widely played games in the world and is one of the oldest yard games. The game is simple, can be played by people of all ages and skill levels, and you can use just about anything as a bocce court. While two people can play against each other, bocce is a great team game. Simply form two teams with an even number of players -- usually eight (four on each team).
