Cornhole is still considered somewhat of a regional game but the craze is spreading quickly! The rules and play is so easy that every age and every gender can play together. That's one of the features that makes it such a fantastic summer party game! The game consists of two boards, with a hole in each, that are placed 30 feet apart. Each team of two people alternates throwing 4 corn bags (similar to bean bags) to try to get them through the hole in the board. The team earns points depending upon whether the bag goes through the hole or lands on the board.
We began playing this game in our yard last summer and had inpromtu neighborhood tournaments almost every weekend! In our community, there are also several places to play organized tournaments for prizes but we really enjoy just playing with neighbors and friends. If you are looking for a fun, family activitiy to play in your yard, consider Cornhole!
