What is the Cornhole Game

What is the cornhole game

 

Cornhole is also be known as “corn toss”, “bean bag toss”, “baggo”, or “bags”. It’s a lawn game similar to horseshoes but much much better. Instead of using metal stakes and horseshoes, the game is played with plywood boards and corn filled bags. Players toss the bags from opposite ends of the boards and attempt to make the bags into the six inch holes cut into the plywood boards. A bag on the board is worth 1 point and a bag in the hole scores 3 points. Who first scores 21 points wins! There are a few more rules, but that’s essentially the point of the game.

Why is such a simple game so much fun?
Cornhole is a social game played with friends and family in backyards, festivals, BBQ’s, parties, and any other kind of social function. The game is portable so you can play it just about anywhere, and the cornhole bags are light so it’s safe for the whole family to play. The great thing about bringing out the cornhole boards is that it is an easy way to “break the ice” at any party or social gathering.

The cornhole community has also created a whole set of terms to communicate the happenings of the game. The game starts out as a simple and tactical game, until you either score or lose. That’s when the excitement begins!
