Who would have ever thought trying to toss a bag filled with beans into a small hole some distance away could be so much fun! Legend has it that back in the fourteenth-century, a cabinet maker named Matthias Kuepermann created cornhole after watching some kids toss rocks into a groundhog hole. Apparently, he was concerned for their safety, so he designed a safer game for them. Whatever the history, cornhole is now one of the most popular games at backyard barbecues, beach parties, company outings and, you guessed it, tailgate parties. Note that just because someone already has a cornhole set doesn’t mean they wouldn’t like another. After all, what tailgater have you ever met who has already had too much fun!
