Because You Asked

Cornhole, also known as bean bag toss, corn toss, baggo or bags, is a lawn game in which players take turns throwing corn hole bags(bean bags)at a raised platform with a hole in the far end. A corn bag in the hole scores 3 points, while one on the platform scores 1 point. Play continues until a player reaches the score of 21.

The cornhole game history is older than many people know. It is also a history that is disputed. There are several versions of this history being told. Cincinnati, Ohio boasts that the game had its beginning there. It is believed that the modern beanbag toss game of the USA did originate probably around the area of Cincinnati though. But it is believed that this game originated in Germany in about the 14th century.

Now that you know all about corn hole,
 go out into the world and play!

The first time I saw this game is in 2005 when I was dating my husband. He made one for himself. It's fun!
