Tabletop Bean Bag games are great fun!  They are entertaining for hours and hours of fun.  Indoors, Outdoors, while traveling, and even at the office.  They are great for Physical therapy, no bending to pick up bags, good hand-eye coordination, good for seniors,  good for anyone.  Bring them with to any party to liven things up, they will be a hit at your favorite Sports Bar.  Tabletop Bean Bag games are great gifts for any occasion.  For the boss or relative who is hard to buy for or has everything.  These are unique Christmas gifts, employee gifts, and wonderful Thank you gifts.  Schools love them for indoor recess, for gym class and in the staff lounges.  We can customize them to have just about anything you want on the boards.  

 

Cornhole or Corn Toss is similar to horseshoes except you use wooden boxes called cornhole platforms or boards and corn bags instead of horseshoes and metal stakes. Contestants take turns pitching their corn bags at the corn hole boards or platforms until a contestant reaches the score of 21 points. A corn bag in the hole scores 3 points, while one on the platform scores 1 point.

 

Tabletop Bean Bags is the mini version of the original Cornhole games.

It has been called many things, Corn Toss, Bean Bag, Bean Toss, Baggo, Soft Horseshoes, Indiana Horseshoes, but to many born and raised in Kentucky and the southern part of Ohio, the game is passionately referred to as Cornhole.  It has been said that the game originated in Germany in the 14th century, and then was rediscovered in the hills of Kentucky over 100 years ago.  The truth is, who really knows, but the game is great fun for all ages and can be played anywhere!

Scoring can be swift and the lead may change hands several times in a match before the winner is decided.
The game is generally played tournament style with an individual or team being named the champion at the end of the tournament.

THE GIRL SCOUT CONNECTION

 

My name is Nicole and I am a Cadette Girl Scout.  I have been in Girl Scouts for the last 10 years.  This project started when my cousin, in the Marines, was being shipped out to Iraq .  He would be taking a ship there & be on the ship for 8-12 weeks.  He likes to play “BAGS”, and said he would miss them.  That gave my mom an idea to make a smaller tabletop version that was portable for him.  From there it turned into a business for our family. 

Since my cousin and his platoon loved the mini bags, we decided to send more of them to other troops overseas.  They come in a drawstring bag so they’re easy to carry or put in their Humvee!!  It‘s a fun game to play & really helps fill in their down time!  That’s how we decided to do this as my Girl Scout Gold Award project

I just made another huge shipment with the help of the Orland Park Veteran's commission. I was able to send 21 more sets overseas to our troops!!!!!!!  The troops love them.  I have received many email thanks from our soldiers too.   I want to thank Anheuser-Busch for their donation of stickers for the boards.  Check out the new pics below.  Thanks to everyone who bought candy to help fund this shipment.  It should be there in time for Christmas.  

           

 

I made a huge shipment today 1-20-09 with the help of Orland Park's Veterans Commission.
