Corn Hole

Corn Hole , Corn Toss. or Bean Bag Toss is similar to horseshoes except you use wooden boxes called corn hole platforms and bean   bags instead of horseshoes and metal stakes. Players take turns tossing their bean  bags at the corn  hole platform until a contestant reaches the score of 21 points. A bean  bag in the hole scores 3 points, while one on the platform scores 1 point.

 Corn Hole has become an incredibly popular game. Here in SC, it has exploded! It is played all the time at the beach, parties, wedding receptions and   back yard bbq's..It is a great game for people of all ages. While It is usually played in teams,it doesn't have to be. When playing corn hole, one is usually seen with a bean bag in one hand and a cocktail in the other...That's how we roll down here. These wood boards can be personalized with just about anything on them and the bean bags can be personalized as well. Here are a few seaside inspired games, these can be found at Victory Tailgate

My son and future daughter in law will be having corn hole at their wedding reception. I am thinking I will make a personalized one for them with  their initials.

Corn Hole sets can range in price, from 75.00 for an unpainted set, up to 200.00 for a painted or personalized set. If you are a DIY type person you can make your own . The cost is roughly a  little less expensive than purchasing an unpainted set. It takes about 6 hours to  make. If you are interested in making one here is the tutorial. Corn Hole How To.
