With roots in Cincinnati, OH, where the game of cornhole is extremely popular, we offer our own cornhole set design. It's also played throughout the Midwest, and has a few different names like bags, bag toss, corn toss, baggo, etc. Our sets are made with high quality board and bags, making them extremely strong and durable. We also use recycled and green paint to finish our sets.
We don't make the portable sets with the legs that fold underneath due to the fact that after a bit of use they all start to flatten, changing the specified angle of the board. We also find that the boards tend to get played on by little kids, which would flatten the folding style of board, but I have engineered my boards to be able to withstand a good bit of weight. To change any angle on our boards, they must be damaged enough to practically destroy them. We believe if you are going to make something portable you will be able to do more than just reduce the size of its smallest dimension, and therefore focused on making long lasting boards that will be consistent from time to time. We are working on producing a collapsible design that is durable enough.
Our boards are also designed to be used in the day as well as at night. We recommend running two strings of Christmas lights under the boxes to light them up, enabling play on into the night. There is a recessed back panel that provides a place to set your beverages where they will be out of the danger of being hit by flying corn filled bags. You are always welcome to come by our shop sometime and check them out.

Why Do We Call It Cornhole?
(YouTube.com is a good resource to see how big the game of cornhole is.)
It is rumored to have come from the ancient Midwestern farmer’s marketplace where among other things corn was sold. Often times the farmers would end up leaving the marketplace for the day with an over abundance of corn to take home and nothing to show for it but a lot of time and effort into the crop itself. Because of this dilemma a particular farmer, Jebediah Magillicutty, decided to take this excess corn and stuff it into bags for storage. From this he came up with the idea that if he would stuff this shelled corn into smaller more transportable bags that he could make a game out of them. And so he did. In the late 1800’s, Jebediah created cornhole where he took his small bags, square in shape, stuffed them with shelled corn, and made a gaming surface out of wood that he had stored in his barn. His game consisted of two people throwing these primitive bags at a rectangular board for entertainment. Since then the game has evolved into a spectacular game of rivalry, sportsmanship, and plain old fun with friends and neighbors.
To Start the Game
Boxes are placed 30 feet away from each other measuring from hole to hole. Play begins by choosing partners. 4 players - 2 for each team. One team member stands at each of the boards on the exact same side of the boards, always one team member per end on the same side. The game can also be played with just two people, walking back and forth from end to end after each round with each player always staying on their same side of the boards. Choose who goes first. When a new team is entering the game the winner of the previous game goes first, but the entering team gets to choose what color bags they want or which side of the boards they would like to be on, what end a player is on is strictly decided by the team itself. The other team makes the remaining choice. Each player throws four bags per round alternating throws between each team. Each player throws from their respective side of the board and cannot go past the front of the board (much like bowling). Winner of each round throws first next round (i.e. if team 1 gets 2 points, team 1 throws first in the next round. This continues until team 2 wins the honors by winning a round). The first team to 21, and wins by 2, wins. 12 - 0 is a skunk. Games can be shortened by playing to 11 or 16.
Each bag that lands on the playing surface is worth 1 point. Each bag that lands in the "cornhole" is worth 3 points. Points are tallied at the end, so whatever happens during play is legal (i.e. knocking a bag off, or in the cornhole). Points cancel out (i.e. if team 1 has 3 bags on the board and team 2 has 1 bag on the board then team 1 nets 2 points). Winning score for the round goes first next round. If a cornhole bag touches the ground at any point it is out of play.
