Corn Hole Design - Fun to Play, Easy to Build, and Very Safe For Children


Visitors: 416

There is an addicting game that is fast spreading throughout the country. That game is corn hole. While believed to have been played in various forms for centuries, corn hole is a backyard game that is gaining popularity all over the country. It is not exactly known where the game originated. Some say that people have been playing games similar to this bean bag toss game as far back as ancient times when tribes tossed rocks into small holes dug in to the ground. Some versions of the games history have roots traced back to pioneers in the Midwestern states of Kentucky and Ohio.

Corn hole design is quite simple. It basically consists of a board that is inclined and has a 6 inch hole in the upper part of the board. Corn bags are then thrown at the boards, points being earned for every bean bag that falls into the hole, gaining three points. Points are also earned for bags remaining on the board at the end of each inning, which earn 1 point each. The game is very simple to play, and a great game for children to play, being that it is so safe. This kid-friendly corn hole design can be used in any size yard, and can be set up in seconds. One great thing about the game is that it is very unlikely that a child will get injured with the safe corn hole design.

There are several websites and resources that can help anyone who is interested in building a corn hole set. Woodworking plans to replicate the game can be obtained for free from various sites or from the American Corn hole Association (ACA), the governing body for corn hole tournaments and play. Making a corn hole board is very simple, only plywood boards, nuts and bolts, and a few simple tools are required. Accessories to complete the whole corn hole set including bean bags and score towers can also be made at home or simply bought from online stores.
