Deluxe corn hole game
Get this beautiful, portable, corn hole bean bag toss game for this summer’s fun events! Play on the beach or backyard.

Corn hole is a bit like horse shoes and a bit like skeetball or bowling.   Maybe a bit like ladder ball, bocce or other tossing games.  What makes corn hole better than horseshoes in my option is the ability for the bean bag to slide up the board and into the hole or to make a perfect “swish” shot.

You can knock off competitors like in bocce or block other people’s shots.  This version of the game features regulation sized four foot boards, folds for portability and features a stunningly beautiful playing surface with directional graphic pattern.

How to Play Bean Bag Toss

The rules of Corn Hole are simple and easy to learn.  Like all good backyard games, Corn Hole can be played with a beer in one hand.

Viva Sol Bean Bag Toss is played with 2 or 4 players divided into 2 teams – the blue and green team. The boards are set approximately 27 feet apart, and teams attempt to throw the bean bags onto the board for 1 point or into the hole for 3 points. Opposing teams take turns throwing their bean bags one at time at the target.

Teams can also play offensively by knocking the other teams’ bags off the board for fierce competition. Points from opposing teams cancel each other out, so only 1 team scores per round. The first team to reach 21 points wins. Viva Sol Bean Bag Toss is the perfect party game, and will be the centerpiece of any outdoor occasion, from backyard barbecues to tailgating.
