The Growing Popularity Of Cornhole

When the creators of cornhole created the game, they couldn't have predicted that it was going to become as popular as it has. The game is simple. It involves two teams tossing 6x6" bean bags at a board with a hole in it about 20 feet away. Players get 3 points for getting the bag in the hole and 1 point for landing it on the board. The first team to 21 wins. 

Cornhole certainly is one of the most popular leisure games in America, especially in the midwest. Drive by any barbecue or tailgate party and you will see the game being played. The game is so popular that there is now an arcade game version made by the same company that created Golden Tee. Now, fans of the game can even play it inside. 

Why is it popular? 

It is curious that the game is so widely played. It's not really an original idea. Some version of it has been played for centuries. Nevertheless, the sport has captured the attention of the American leisure game enthusiast. I think there are a few reasons for this. 

It's Easy to Learn and Play

Cornhole doesn't require a lot of athletic talent. This makes it fun because anyone can play. It's fun whether you're playing socially or competing. Anyone can be good at the game regardless of their age. 

The social aspect of cornhole is also important. You can easily hold a conversation during a match. This is why it is so popular at parties. Of course, there are very serious players that compete in nationally. Last year, they even held a tournament at Soldier Field in Chicago. 


If you are really into the game and like to host parties, get your own cornhole set. There are a lot of companies like Custom Corn Toss that sell official cornhole boards. The games are made from top-quality durable materials and will last for years. If you are one of those people that leaves stuff like this outside, don't worry. They are completely weather resistant. 

Another cool thing you can do is get a customer cornhole game. Add a little flair to your set by getting your favorite college sports team's logo painted on it. You can even get two rivals teams painted on them and have competitions on game day. Your imagination is the only limitation when it comes to creating a custom cornhole set.
