Below are assortments of Cornhole tidbits which make brilliant reading material when the time is right. What time is that exactly? Only you will know.

Please keep in mind, not every part of this information is factual. There are a plethora of misconceptions and personal opinions hovering around the Cornhole world. Even so, it’s always enjoyable to examine anything Cornhole!

Places Cornhole was invented may include Germany, (14th Century) Kentucky farmland, Champaign, IL, West Side of Cincinnati, or by a Nineteenth Century Midwestern farmer named Jebediah McGillicuddy.

Other names for Cornhole are Bag Toss, Tailgate Toss, Bean Bag Toss, Soft Horseshoes, Corn Toss, Bags, Baggo, and even Sack-Hole!

If playing indoors there should be at least a 12’ clearance. Ever try pitching Cornhole with low ceilings? Not fun!

A Pitcher’s Box measures about 4’x3’ and that player must stay in it when throwing.

The back of a Cornhole Board is roughly 12” from the ground to the deck of the board.

Cornhole Bags are 6”x6” and should weight about 16 oz.

The front edge of a Cornhole board is roughly 2 ½” from the ground.

Some people believe that actually folding Cornhole bags when throwing them equates to more consistency and have even developed names for them. The "Omaha Overhead", "Half Paducah Pancake", "Chicago Fold", "Paducah Pancake", "Sacramento Sling", and the "Frisco Fling" to name a few.

Some bags are made with Duck Canvas.

Did you know there is a Movie about Cornhole?

Long ago, ancient civilizations lofted giant rocks at deep openings in the earth. Maybe they were on to something?
