Cornhole: A Fun and Easy Game to Play

The wonderful game of Cornhole has been around for longer than you can imagine.  Even though Cornhole sounds more like a curse word than a game, it’s easy to learn rules and simple set up is a big reason why this game is starting to catch on all around the world.  Here is a bit more about this unique sounding game and why it is so much fun!

One of the best things about the game of Cornhole is the fact that you really can play it just about anywhere.  It is the perfect party atmosphere game that you can set up indoors or outdoors.  In fact, Cornhole is becoming a staple game seen all across the country at campgrounds and tailgate parties. Many folks who play cornhole once, are hooked, and end up buying their own set and passing along their love of cornhole to others.

And since there is no physical contact between players, you won’t need to be in good shape or have to be a superstar athlete to compete and play the game well. So the game is perfect for youngsters and even seniors! What outdoor game can both a grandchild and a grandparent play together with relative ease?

The object of the game is to get your bean bags (known as corn bags) inside the small hole of the Cornhole board while standing around thirty feet away.  You can play the game as a team with one other person or singly.  Some larger groups of people even set up a cornhole tournament if there are multiple parties who wish to play. Cornhole is even becoming a popular game for non-profit organizations to use for fundraising.

Most Cornhole setup equipment comes with two Cornhole boards so once the first side is finished throwing, the other side can just gather the bags and throw back to the other side.  This makes the game flow much better rather than having to gather the bags, walk back to the throwing point and repeat.

Cornhole games are played much like innings in baseball.  Each team gets four pitches each inning.  If the bag lands on the board, it is worth one point.  If the bag goes directly into the hole, it is worth three points.  The first team to 21 wins the game.

Since the game is so simple to play, most people like to make up their own rules.  Although there are official rules to the game, the game may differ depending on where you play it or who you play it with.  If you want to play longer, more intense games, you may decide to play to a higher score.  You may even decide to set the boards farther or closer apart depending on your level of accuracy as well.

If you are looking for a great game to play at a picnic, campground, beach, driveway, or even in your own backyard, Cornhole is it.  Anyone at any skill or age level can compete and it truly is very simple to setup and everyone will enjoy it.
