Cornhole - What it is & how to choose the best board

Cornhole is one of the most mysterious games when it comes to how it came into being. Thought to be invented in the 14th century in Germany, this game has, in the past several years, taken a massive leap forward in popularity. There are quite a few reasons why the game is so popular, many of which have to do with reasons other games aren’t exactly the most convenient to play – which has mostly to do with just how portable the game is. So portable, in fact, that fans of the Cincinnati Bengals were avid players who ended up spreading the word of the game at tailgate parties to fans of the opposing team, which was born tailgate parties.

Playing Cornhole is actually quite simple, which adds to the game’s incredible popularity. The first step is to figure out who’s going to go first. This is commonly jokingly pushed to the person who is considered the ugliest, however, it can be achieved with any other conventional method, such as a coin toss. Once the first person throws a bag, it becomes a cycle of throwing back and forth until all of the eight bags have been thrown. When a bag is thrown, it must land on the board and not touch the ground first. If it does, that bag is removed before the next is thrown. Counting the points is very simple. Any bags on the board, in the end, are worth 1 point each and any bags that are made into the hole completely are worth 3. After comparing the total points of each side, you simply subtract the difference between the two points and award the winning side the difference. The game is over once a team reaches a total of 21 points.

You can find cornhole everywhere and on pretty much any platform, right down to mobile apps on your phone. This is one of the most popular swimming pool games, in fact, using inflatable boards and balls. The popularity of the game has made a huge market for the production of cornhole boards, including high-quality professional boards. Cornhole tournaments are now a thing and are quite serious, drawing in hundreds of thousands of players around the world! With the newly competitive sport comes the need for high-quality equipment to play with. That’s where things start to get interesting, considering this game has been produced with so many cheap products in the past.

There are many issues that cheap cornhole boards develop, such as delamination of the board due to simple things like water or heat, expansion of the board due to water on cheap MDF wood materials, or just simply the board breaking due to cheap materials. Choosing a quality board, then, is quite important if you want your boards to last any amount of time. Homoth is probably one of the highest quality boards that can be bought, and surprisingly their price is not much higher than the cheaper alternatives.

As you can see, Cornhole is one of the most popular upcoming games going into 2021. If you haven’t already, maybe today is a great time to give it a try for yourself.
