Popular game played in the Midwest. Cornhole set is made with 3/4” birch plywood. Legs are hinged and tuck underneath when not in use. Sets were painted then graphics were added in the end.

Alright then I’ll ask the question everybody not from the mid-west is too polite to ask.
What do you do with it then? That is how do you play this game?

Those are nice. My buddy lives south of Cincy and talks a lot about playing this game. Down here in Texas it’s called bags. I’m thinking of making a set for my family so when we get together for BBQs and beer drinking, we’re set. NICE FREAKIN’ JOB!!!

I meant to ask where you got the dimensions. I was researching this a few days ago and there are conflicting websites. I want to make mine “the real deal”. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks and, again, they look great…

BritBoxmaker, It’s played very much like horseshoes. You set the boards 27 feet apart from each other. You get three points if you land the bag in the hole and one point if you land on the board. Your opponents bags cancel yours out. You play until the first person gets 21 points. It’s wildly popular in Cincinnati.

Jim, the dimensios are 24” x 48” x 12” high

Where I come from “cornhole” has an entirely different meaning…

I saw some Frat boys playing it at Picnic Day at UC Davis (Davis, California) last Saturday. I wondered what game that was. They must be from Cincinatti. I know they were drunk at 10:30 Sat. Morning. To be young and carefree again, Sigh.

If they were drunk at 10:30 in the morning then they were definitely from Cincinnati. : )
