So What Is Cornhole Anyway?

Great for the entire family! Cornhole, also "tailgate toss", "bean bag toss", "baggo", "corn toss", or just simply "bags" is a lawn game in which players take turns pitching cornhole bags (duck cloth bags filled with whole kernel corn) at a raised wooden platform with a hole in the far end. There are several versions and sizes but the most well-known size is 2 feet wide by 4 feet long with a 6 inch hole centered 9 inches down from the top. The surface sits 12 inches high off the ground in the back and 4 inches high in the front. A corn bag in the hole scores 3 points, while one on the platform scores 1 point. Play continues until a player reaches the score of 21. The game can be played as either doubles or singles and uses two boards with 8 bags (4 of one color and 4 of another).

Ok, so why is it fun? It's fun because the entire family can play. It doesn't matter if you're 8 years old or 80 years old. Just about anyone can play. It's great for parties, special events, tailgaiting, or just for some fun in the backyard to get your family out of the house every once in a while. It's easy to learn and can be challenging at any skill level. You and your opponent alternate throwing the 8 bags which almost always results in some humorous situations and/or precise throwing strategies at the higher skill levels of play.

The fun doesn't stop there. People who enjoy this game also have the opportunity to play in local tournaments, leagues, and ongoing weekly events held in various locations here locally in the Cleveland area and in many other places across the US.
