Jamilla came to The Home Depot to purchase a Toss game for her nephews birthday. They came to the Anaheim Super Store - Lumber/Building Materials area for information. Jamilla wanted at first to purchase the game but when she saw it she decided to make the game herself.
The game sell between $60 and $130. A toss game is 2 ft by 4 ft with a 6-inch hole centered 9 inches from the top of the frame. The panel is slightly elevated so the corn/sand bag can fall on the ground. The corn/sand toss game is an activity game, played outside and it can involve professional players. Some games can pay thousands of dollars if you are good at the game. There are many organization that have official rules. The American Cornhole Association (ACA) is one of these professional organization. Other organization are NCAAF, NFL, NHL, MLB.

This post shows the nine steps to create a simple hole toss game. The game is slightly different than other versions but it will work the same as the other version of toss games available on the Internet or local sporting stores.
Step 1: Fig.1 shows the Oriented Strand Board (OSB) that will be used as the top of the game. Another choice is to use Pine plywood. Pine is already sanded and ready to use. OSB does not have a smooth surface but it only cost $5 for a 2x4 piece 3/4 thick.

Step 2: Measure the 1x4x4 pine board and obtain the center of the board section. The middle area will hold the height of the game, notice below the middle has a 2x4x2 in the center of the board.
Step 3: Fig.2 and fig.3 shows that a LS50Z Adjustable Framing L-Angle was used to hold the 2x4x2 center post as well as attaching it to the 1x4x3 pine board. This bracket is construction grade and can take a lot of rough handling.

Note: Drywall screws should be no longer than 3/4 in. for the 1x4x3 and screws being screwed into the 2x3x2 should be no longer than 1 1/4 inch in length.

Step 9: Fig.7 and fig.8 shows that this is a side view of the completed game. There are no sides to this game but if you need sides it easy enough to lay the game on its side and trace it on a new board. Then use a saw to cut the sides and use glue to adhere the sides together. All corn/sand hole toss game sold have sides.

Now the game is ready to be used. An additional 1x4 pine could had been added for more stability. But this game was going to be painted and used to education children in sportsmanship. All the corn toss history and game information above was obtained from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia and organization detail from Sam's Corn Hole Bags.
