Do you call it “cornhole” or “bags”?
I say “bags”. End of discussion.
Much more popular in the midwest, bags is a cousin to horse shoes and is growing in popularity out here on the west coast. Unfortunately, most Californian’s know this game by it’s all too common but inferior name: “cornhole”. The word cornhole unfortunately has some unpleasant connotations.
If you visit the tavern and want to play bags, just let us know and we’ll set it up. But if you call it “cornhole”, then no soup for you!
Do you throw the bag oriented horizontally or vertically? Do you put spin on it? Do you lob it or fire a missile? It all depends!
If there’s enough interest, we’ll set up a tournament and may the best bagger win!
