Just as with the games of horseshoes and washers, corn hole can be played with any members of the families. There is no athletic ability required; maybe just bring your sense of humor to laugh at some of the errant flip-flop tosses that miss the hole by a mile!
The game can be played 1vs.1, or in teams of 2vs.2.
If playing 1vs.1, each player takes turns tossing the objects (in this case, the flip-flops) at the other hole. Each player has two flip-flops to toss at the other hole. Whichever player either tosses a flip-flop into the hole, or lands the flip-fop in the box and is closer to the hole, wins the inning or frame. First team to 21 wins.
As with the shell horseshoes, the game is an instant hit with the little kids too! The kids will typically find a ton of enjoyment not only in playing the game, but in more cases than not, coming up with the idea and building the playing surface!
