The Game of Cornhole

Having a tailgate or lawn party can be a lot of fun as there are many games you can choose to play. One of our favorite games to play is Cornhole, also known as tailgate toss. The game requires a wooden board with holes large enough for the included bean bags to pass through. Each time a player scores or passes a bean bag through the hole they will receive points. This game is very popular and can be played by young and old alike. It is also great for warm summer nights when you just want to have some fun with your friends and family.
