What is Cornhole?

Simple as Corn Be

Cornhole is one of the newest in a series of games designed to test accuracy, foster friendly competition, and leave one hand available for refreshment. The best thing about this new game is that literally anyone can play. Cornhole involves no dangerous metal hooves, draconian British rulebooks, or foot-crushing tossballs. Kids, moms, dads, jocks, nerds, hippies ... they all love this game. If you can lob a pocket 30 feet or so without causing a scene, cornhole is the lawn game for you.

Scorin' Hole

Cornhole scoring and play are closely akin to horseshoes. Teams of two align themselves at either end of two wooden targets placed 30 feet apart. Taking turns on the toss, each player tries to land his bag in the hole or on the wide wooden surface. Get one in, 3 points for you. Land it on the platform, 1 point. If the person playing alongside you does the same, the points cancel out - so the only scoring is pure profit. Lead changes are frequent and competition becomes fierce, so get ready to keep score. First team to 21 wins!
