Once summer rolls around, outdoor parties are one of the best ways for people to get together and socialize. When planning an outdoor party, it is important to consider how you are going to entertain your guests and prevent them from getting bored. A great way to encourage people to get involved and have some fun is with a corn hole game. Here is some great information about this popular backyard party game.
Cornhole is an outdoor party game that has become popular all over the world. While no on really knows if the game originated in Germany or Cincinnati, no one can argue that it is hugely addictive and incredibly fun to play. One of the best things about the game is that it is easy to set up and even easier to learn. Anyone can enjoy the excitement it will bring.
Corn hole does require a few pieces of equipment to play. To ensure you are ready for your big party, make sure you either make or purchase your items in advance. The first thing you are going to need to have are the cornhole boards. It can be difficult to find these specialized items at a local store, so ordering online may be your best option. The next thing you are going to need is the bags for throwing. You are going to need a total of eight bags, four for each team. Most sets come with multiple colors to easily distinguish teams.
If you decide to get creative and make your own set, make sure you follow these simple guidelines. In most cases, the boards should be two feet wide and four feet long. You will need to cut a hole about six inches in diameter, so that the bags can easily pass through. Typically, the bags are filled with corn or crushed rock and weigh roughly one pound each. Remember, the sturdier your boards and bags are, the longer your set will last.
When playing, you first want to set the boards up about thirty feet away from each other. Because these boards are usually portable, the game can be played almost anywhere. You can set-up a game in your driveway, on the beach or even at the park. Since there is no physical contact or requirement for alcohol consumption, it is a great game for people of all ages.
If you are going to be occupied when your party starts and you are concerned that your guests arent going to understand how to play, you can print some of the official rules out and leave them by the boards. This will allow your guests to understand how the game works as it is very easy to learn and play. This will also make sure that your guests are never bored and will be entertained, even if you are busy doing something else.
If you host parties regularly, you know how important it is to ensure that all of your guests have a great time. After all, why would anyone come back to your party if they didnt have fun at the last one? For this reason, you should consider introducing the game of cornhole, also referred to as tailgate toss. This will make people get excited about all of your upcoming parties. Who knows, you may even start a trend where all of your friends host parties with fun backyard games.
