Post Cornhole the Game A Midwest Phenomenon
Cornhole the Game A Midwest Phenomenon

Cornhole what kind of name is that. The name will definitely get your attention and require some kind of explanation. It is a family game originating in the Midwest, and made popular in the Colleges and Universities. Cornhole is a Midwest Phenomenon that is expanding its borders.

It is a simple game a lot like horseshoes but without the danger of getting smacked with a heavy piece of metal. In Cornhole you throw one pound bags of corn, or beans at a target hole - much safer. Requirements: a 2 ft x 4 ft. raised board with a 6 in. hole cutout. Place the boards 30 ft apart and have at it. Players score 3 points when a bag goes thru the hole and 1 point when the bag lands on the board. The opponent can negate a player's score by doing the same thing or knocking a bag off the board. The game plays to 21. The game is addicting so watch out.

Cornhole Tournaments are popping up in Chicago, Cincinnati, San Diego, Dallas, New York, pretty much all over the Country. Cincinnati Bengals Quarterback Carson Palmer has his own Charity Cornhole Tournament. The game has evolved so much that now there are even Professional Cornhole Tournaments where the winner takes home a good chunk of money.

A Corn Hole Set is easy to make and most cornhole sets are homemade. However with the popularity of the game now many cornhole sets are manufactured. American Cornhole, one of those manufacturers, makes a "furniture quality" cornhole set called the American Cornhole Tournament Series Set that is not only fun to play but a great looking hardwood board. These boards are found on all the Carnival Cruise Lines. Nothing like Cornhole on the High Seas.

Several Cornhole Organizations have formed to promote the Sport of Cornhole. These Organizations offer rules, league management, and education to help promote the game. American Cornhole Organization, one of those organizations, is developing Software that will offer a Cornhole Handicap so that any level of player can play another competitively - isn't that interesting.

So if one of your friends wants to play cornhole, don't panic. Join in the fun.

Cornhole is a game everyone can play.
