Quick Answer

To comply with American Cornhole Association regulations, cornhole platforms are constructed with one-half inch plywood measuring 48 inches by 24 inches and contain a circular hole 6 inches in diameter, the center of which is located 9 inches from the top of the platform and 12 inches from each side of the platform. The front edge of the platform must measure 2 1/2 to 4 inches from the ground, while the back edge must measure 12 inches from the ground.

To raise the back edge of the platform off the ground, construction of either solid wood sides or folding legs that produce the correct height of 12 inches is acceptable. A total of two platforms are needed to play Cornhole. Once constructed, Cornhole platforms are sanded to a smooth finish and painted with high-gloss latex paint to provide an appropriate surface for the accompanying Cornhole bags.

Eight Cornhole bags are needed for the game and are made with two pieces of durable fabric each, preferably duck canvas, measuring 6 inches by 6 inches square with a quarter-inch, double-stitched seam. These bags are filled with 2 cups of corn feed each and weigh between 14 and 16 ounces. Two different colors are used to construct the bags to differentiate between teams.
