Cornhole used to be a little-known game of little interest to the younger generation. But for people of their parents' age, there was no better way to entertain themselves on a lazy, warm afternoon than with a game of Bag Toss.

This simple yet engaging game of plastic bean bag toss, which is said to have started in Cincinnati, has taken on new fame in recent years. The surge in popularity of the latest ball toss game first began in the Midwest, and then interest in the game of cornhole has swept across the United States. The game is most popularly played at state fairs, but you can also enjoy it at parties, parks and even in some bars with outdoor areas

No one seems to know for sure where the game of cornhole began. Some sources suggest that the origin of the bean bag toss game (or a very similar game) has been around for centuries, somewhere in Germany, 600 years ago. Others say that the game was started by farmers in Kentucky. In this century, the game first appeared in the American Midwest, spreading from around Cincinnati and becoming a favorite game.

You may find that the game of cornhole has many other aliases, including dummy board, bean bag toss or doghouse. These aliases depend on your location. The bean bag toss game itself involves throwing a bag with the weight of corn or beans through a hole placed on a raised platform so that it lands on the board or in the hole, much like point and shoot. In the game of corn hole toss, the winner is the one who can throw more bags filled with beans into the hole.

Why has this game become so popular? Like another famous lawn game, horseshoes, cornhole offers competition for players of all ages. The game can be played one-on-one with two players or partnered with two players per team. The American Cornhole Association requires bags measuring six by six inches and weighing between 15 and 16 ounces. The platform measures two by four feet and the hole is only six inches in diameter. Players throw the bags from 27 feet away (the required distance between the bases of the two platforms). Each player throws four bags per round. The first team to reach 21 points wins.

To start the bean bag game is very simple. All you need is a little space, a decent underhand throwing ability and some competitive opponents.
