Put the ladder on one end of your yard, and use a pen and paper to assign scores to each rung of the ladder. For example, you can designate the area below the bottom rung 10 points, the area below the top rung 30 points, and the area below the second to the bottom rung 50 points.

Place the bean bags around 30 feet away from the ladder and mark a throwing line and a foul line with a chair or a rope.

During the game play the throwing team stands on the same side of the throwing line when performing a bean bag toss.
