In this article, we will be talking about the different places to play cornhole and the rise of the game in the national spotlight.

 

Where To Play Cornhole

With the popularity of cornhole growing at such a fast rate, there are many places you can go to find a great cornhole set up. Let’s talk about a few of the different venues and locations you might find a great cornhole experience at.

Bars and Microbreweries 

The addition of a cornhole set up at bars and microbreweries has become very common in different parts of the country. These types of venues are always looking for interactive games that allow their customers to play with multiple people. Having a set or multiple sets of boards at your bar or restaurant will guarantee your customers will have something fun and entertaining which will, in turn, keep them around and enjoying your place of business.

One of the cool things with cornhole products is the ability to have any custom artwork printed or embroidered on your products. Custom cornhole boards are a great way to increase brand awareness and engagement for your business. Combining these boards with different accessories like a set of custom embroidered bags will grab many people's attention.

It is well known that customers remember fun and engaging experiences more than the typical simple marketing businesses often do.

The ability to give your customers the opportunity to have a fun experience combined with a chance to market your brand in a positive and fun light? You just can’t beat it.

 

Your own backyard

Interested in making sure your next party or gathering is a fun and enjoyable event? A cornhole set up is the perfect way to achieve this. Cornhole can be played with two or four people, so it provides you the option of getting multiple people involved.

Maybe you want to run a tournament and give a prize to the winning team. Maybe you just want a set of boards available for people to play on and enjoy themselves. Regardless of your goals, one thing is for sure, a set of cornhole boards enhances any outdoor party or gathering.

Adding a set of cornhole board lights or light up bags to your set-up will make your cornhole board the life of the party. These light up options will also allow your guests to continue playing on into the night as well.

Tailgating Events

This list wouldn’t really make sense without mentioning the world of tailgating. Cornhole boards are the perfect addition to any tailgating type of event such as a big game or concert. Nothing like getting the competitive juices and fun going before the event!

Our boards over at Slick Woody’s are designed with a unique handle, which makes transporting them in and out of different events a breeze! As many tailgaters know, pregaming is a big part of the tailgate experience. One of the neat things about the game of cornhole is you only need one hand, meaning you can eat your hot dog or drink your beverage at the same time while playing!


 

The rise of cornhole

As we mentioned at the beginning of the article, the game of cornhole has been growing at a very steady rate. The game originally started in the Midwest and has since grown across the nation. We’ve been able to see this rise first hand over at Slick Woody’s with many of our orders coming from states like California and Texas, as well as many east coast states.

There are many names that the game of cornhole is often called. Although cornhole is the original term, many different locations around the country refer to the game as “bags”, “baggo”, “bag toss”, “bean bag toss”, and a few others.

The game of cornhole has gotten so popular as of late that networks like ESPN are beginning to showcase cornhole tournaments on live television. It’s truly amazing to see how far this game has come and where it is on pace to be.

 

 

The game of cornhole provides a great balance of difficulty and simpleness which makes it a popular choice for people when it comes to outdoor games. Throwing a few bean bags onto a board and trying to get it into the hole, sounds easy right? Well when you consider the regulation distance of 27 paces, the game gets a little more difficult. The nice thing is anyone can play regardless of skill level.

We are extremely excited about this increased national exposure the game has been receiving here at Slick Woody’s and are proud to be a part of leading the charge. We’ve partnered with 7x World Cornhole Champion Matt Guy to engineer some of the best boards in the industry and are hoping to help improve the gameplay experience for players around the world for years to come!
