How To Make A Bags, Cornhole, Baggo Game Set

What You Need: (Note this is for tailgate size, regulation is 48″ Long platform, adjust accordingly)

Power Drill/Screwdriver
Jigsaw
2 Sheets of Plywood 24″ x 36″
4 2×4”s – 24″ Long (frame)
4 2×4”s – 32″ Long (frame)
4 2×4”s – 13.5″ Long (legs)
Screws
Drawing Compass
Pencil
8 Bean Bags (4 of each color)

How To Build:

First make sure your wood is cut to the lengths mentioned above. Once all the wood is cut you can assembly the frame. Its pretty obvious how the fram goes together. Take 2 of the 24″ Long pieces and position them on the shorter ends of the plywood, and the 32″ Length ones in between those, running along the sides. Once they are lined up and everything looks good, use screws and screw the frame together. Do not screw the plywood into the frame until the frame itself has been assembled

As I mentioned, once the frame is assembled, screw the plywood top onto the frame you just created.

Now measure 12″ in from either side and 9″ down from the top, this will give you your center point of the hole. Once you have this point take your compass and draw a circle that is 6″ in diameter.

The legs attach at the back, closest to the hole. You can cut them at a slight angle if you choose, its not necessary. Screw or bolt, through the frame into the legs, do not go through the platform.

Once you have the hole cut, you can sand and paint however you like.

Rules:

Teams of 2, 1 player from each team per side
Coin toss to throw first
Game is up to 21 (some people play exactly 21, we just play to 21 first)
Bean bags both start on one side. Team that won toss throws first
Once that person has thrown the bags the other person throws theirs Do not remove the bags from the board until both players have thrown, you can knock around the other teams bags

Points are as follows:
On the Board: 1 Point
In the Hole: 3 Points

Scoring works by taking the difference of the points accumulated. So if team A gets 1 on the board and 1 in the hole and team B only gets 2 on the board, then team A would be granted 2 points and team B would get none. The team that got the most, if any, points in the round would then throw first.
