Cornhole is a game of coordination and skill during which players attempt to get a bean bag into one hole at the top of an inclined board. It sounds simple but is harder than it appears. The game is fun and can be played by people of any age. There can be individual players or teams, depending on the number of players participating. Boards have to be a specific width and inclination in order to be used in tournament games. The rules are dictated by the American Cornhole Association. Boards, bean bags, and accessories are available at sports stores and online.
The quality of boards can differ greatly so it is important to be clear about products available online. Cheap boards are constructed of heavy cardboard or laminated press-board. They will not last long and will have to be replaced frequently. There are sites that make inexpensive boards that are not cheap boards. Thick plywood is the best material for cornhole boards. The end result is durable, but still lightweight enough to be portable and easy to store. Classic boards are the most inexpensive type offered on sites that create high-quality boards. They are recommended for beginners and have simple designs on them. Some are a solid color, while others may have a stripe or basic pattern. Legs fold up under the boards for easy storage. Bean bags for beginners are simple solid colors. Once players decide the game is something they enjoy, there are a variety of styles, accessories, and designs available.
Board wraps are an inexpensive way to change the look of the board and protect the surface at the same time. These are available in multiple designs and themes. They are designed to adhere to the top of the boards. Another way to protect the surface of cornhole boards is to purchase a carry case for storage and transport. Wraps and cases are available to suit any budget. Personalized boards fall in the middle price range. There are hundreds of options for these boards. Themes include hunting, fishing, colleges and universities, sports teams, flowers, cars, dragons, and pyramids, among others. The chosen theme or design is painted directly onto the wood. Custom boards are also available. They can be painted to customer specifications, or one-of-a-kind designs can be created based on customer desires and suggestions.
