Have you ever played Bocce (or Bocci or Boccie)?
I call it the Old-Italian-Man game (it did originate in Italy).
The rules are simple--even a kid can do it--and it's really fun.
Definitely, one of our favorite Sunday family activities (there are occasional tears from a losing party...Ben:)).
Try it...you'll love it!
