What is Cornhole?

IMG_2013_03_15_1213It’s been called many things… Corn Toss, Bean Bag Toss, Bean Toss, Bag-O, but to us born the South, the game is passionately called Cornhole.

According to the American Cornhole Association, it has been said that the game originated in Germany in the 14th century, and then was rediscovered in the hills of Kentucky over 100 years ago. “The truth is, who really knows, but the game is great fun for all ages and can be played anywhere!”

And where better than Myrtle Beach?

The Game

Now, Cornhole is just like the game horseshoes except you use wooden boxes called cornhole boards and corn bags instead of horseshoes and stakes. Each person take turns throwing their corn bags at the cornhole platform until reaches the score of 21 points. A bag in the hole scores 3 points, while one on the platform will only score 1 point. The game is usually played tournament style with an individual or team being named the champion at the end of the tournament.
