Tailgater Cornhole Boards or Regulation?
 
 
Tailgate Toss cornhole boards or regulation cornhole boards? That's a question that comes up quite frequently. What is the "standard" size for boards since different companies advertise different "standards".
 
Depending which area of the country you are in, your boards could vary in size. For instance, in most of Illinois the preferred size of cornhole boards (although most Illinoisans will call it Bean Bag Toss or bags) is 35.5"x24". This is also referred to the Tailgate Toss Cornhole Boards. Why you might ask? Well, because they can fit in your trunk! They are easy to bring around to BBQ's or a tailgating event. This version of the game has really exploded in the Chicagoland area in the past 5 years and is also used in most parts of Iowa and Wisconsin.
 
Cornhole has been rumored to have been invented in Cincy and I wouldn't doubt it because its REALLY popular in Ohio. In those parts the 48"x24" is the standard and there are actual orginations, such as the ACA, have actually formalized the rules to allow for smoother tournaments and standardized play. This is actually a great idea because it allows for ACA sanctioned tournaments. This allows for large scale cornhole tournaments to be set up with no questions on the ruling. I don't think that Ohioans would even consider playing with anything other than the standard 48"x24"...it would be a sin! 
 

But, I guess it is all up to the individual player. In Illinois, you probably couldn't get away with a 48"x24" board and vice versal in Ohio. I guess as long as we're all playing, it doesn't really matter now does it! If there is a debate over which sized boards to use, then go with the tried and true resolution method....paper, rock, scissors!
