There's a saying that close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades. We don't advocate the latter, but you can definitely give horseshoes a shot the next time you're relaxing in the backyard.
And it doesn't get much better than this set. The kit contains everything you need for a friendly game, with finishing touches that put this a few steps beyond your ordinary lawn game. Oh, and it's approved for professional and tournament play by the National Horseshoe Pitchers Association. Just in case that was a concern for you.
