Cornhole, also known as bean bag toss, corn toss or soft horseshoes, is an ever increasingly popular game being played across the nation. While best known by college aged kids at tailgates, Cornhole can be played by anyone of any age. So why play Cornhole? Keep on reading.

1. It’s easy! Cornhole is an easy game to learn with only a few rules. It’s well known at tailgates because it can be used as a drinking game by whoever wants to play that way and it’s fun to have everyone included. If you are a Cornhole veteran and your girlfriend has never played, it’s very easy to teach your significant other how to pick up a cornhole bag and toss it 27 feet into a hole. For children, there is little clean up and it’s fairly difficult to break a set (a well made set I should say) so the investment is sound cornhole board designs.

2. Portability: One of the best parts of Cornhole is how portable it is. Generally, a Cornhole set (boards and bags) weighs at most about 30 lbs. and when purchased, usually comes with a carrying case or handles for the boards and a bag to carry the cornhole bags. If you’re driving it can just be thrown into the back seat of your car or the trunk. If you are taking public transportation you can either slide it under your seat of the bus or keep it at your feet on the rail or subway.

3. Competition: It doesn’t matter who you are, everyone has a competitive streak in them. Whether you are playing an organized sport and you are vying for a championship or if you are at a tailgate playing Cornhole, there is some competition involved. Cornhole has a level of competition that can be appreciated by anyone and it allows those who take it very competitively to have something to look forward to at a tailgate. Imagine how competitive you are when you play flag football. Now take that competitive nature and apply it towards something that doesn’t require you to run around and get covered in mud.

4. Cost: Cornhole, in the grand scheme of things, if relatively inexpensive. A basic one color set can range from $100-125 depending on the quality of it. If you want to step it up and buy a more customized set with your favorite team’s colors and logos then you are looking upwards of $200 to buy it brand new. The best part about spending that kind of money is that there is little you have to do to make your board as good looking as possible and it’s a one time investment for most boards. Bags are the one thing that you are looking at updating about every three years depending on their quality and how often you play and Cornhole bags are about $25 for a set of eight.

5. It’s FUN! With the combination of the above mentioned, Cornhole is fun! You get to hang out with your best friends or people you barely know and have some friendly competition while grilling out and getting ready for the main event of the evening whether it’s a sporting event or concert. You don’t even have to have a main event, Cornhole can be played outside while you are just having a get together in your backyard. Enjoy every second of it and then play again next weekend! It doesn’t matter what you are playing for, where you are playing it or for that matter it doesn’t even matter why you are playing Cornhole. Just enjoy playing a fun game for all ages!
