Cornhole (aka Corn Toss, Bags, or Bean Bag Toss), is similar to horseshoes, except teams use angled wooden boxes with a hole in the far end (the elevated end) called cornhole platforms and corn filled bags instead of horseshoes and metal stakes. Players take turns pitching their “bags” at the platform until a team reaches the score of 21 points. A bag on the platform scores 1 point, while a bag in the hole scores 3 points. Pretty simple and lots of fun.
