It is not just a game for tailgating or a way to pass the time at a barbecue. Known by many names, cornhole is a popular lawn game that can be played by people of all ages. To play cornhole bean bag toss, you do not have to be able to run or even catch anything, which makes it a great game after you have stuffed yourself at a cookout or picnic. Cornhole requires you to throw a bean bag filled with dried corn at a raised platform and get it into the hole.

Although people enjoy it at a tailgating party, the game can also be played by young children. Children are permitted to move closer to the platform to toss the bags, as can some seniors if everyone playing the game agrees to it. The game can even be brought inside if you have a big enough room to play. Because you do not need much to play the game, it can be taken almost anywhere. This is part of what makes corn toss games so popular with tailgaters and picnickers.

There are official rules for the game as set forth by the American Cornhole Association (ACA) with specific instructions on how the game equipment should be designed, how the equipment should be set up to play the game, and how to score the game. You can abide by these guidelines, which you will need to do for tournaments, although you may choose to simplify the rules for a casual game with friends.
