Cornhole: A Game for All Ages and Places

Cornhole is a game in which bean bags, or more appropriately, bags filled with corn, are tossed onto a board with the intention of getting them to slide into a hole in the board. It is normally played with four people where two teams of two compete against each other. Some people play simply for fun with no regard to rules or keeping track of scores. Others take it quite seriously and even enter tournaments wherever they can find one.

In order to fairly compete, there must obviously be a set of rules. This is true in cornhole or any other sport. These rules not only cover how to compete, but spell out things like the size and weight of the bags as well as the dimensions and spacing of the boards. If you want to find an official cornhole game, there are companies like Custom Corntoss can supply you with all the right equipment and a full set of official rules. After that, all you need is a little practice and you will be ready to try your hand at a little competition.

Regardless of how serious or casual you are about your cornhole game, there are several things that make the game attractive for kids and adults of all ages and skill levels. One of these has to do with the portability of the equipment. If you are planning something like a camping trip or family picnic, everything you need to have some fun with a game or cornhole will easily fit into the trunk of your car. There are no elaborate setups required, and anywhere there is a level spot will make a good place to play.

Compared to other recreational activities, cornhole is a very inexpensive game. Those who want to make their own boards can do so with the most basic carpenter skills.

Cornhole boards are easily personalized. You can purchase a set with your favorite college or professional sports team’s logo and have a little fun with friends who pull for a different team.

Because cornhole is more of a game of finesse instead of one in which brute strength is needed, it is appropriate for all ages. Senior citizens can compete with older children without either group having an unfair advantage. If you are looking for a game that can be fun and relaxing in all settings, you should give it a try.
