Best boards Badge_Q4-2013The Winter months are never the best time of the year for Cornhole Boards.  2013 was no exception… But there are still some boards that are worth checking out!  Our top 10 selections include White Stripes boards, Baltimore Ravens/Orioles, Happy Madison, Stanford, Ohio, Highland Park, Maryland, Bald Eagle/Patriotic, portable Blackhawks boards, and a combo washers/cornhole set.

Our “10 Best” are pulled from the Gallery section of the Cornhole Game Players forum. These are all photos posted from October to December of 2013.  Cornhole boards are selected based on creativity, originality, craftsmanship, and photo quality. If you’d like to be included in future Best Boards events, all you have to do is share your boards in the CGP Forum Gallery. We also post all of the best boards on our Cornhole Facebook and Cornhole G+ pages.

Our goal when picking our Best Boards is to highlight designs, styles, customizations, and builds that we haven’t seen before. We also like to chose boards that are visually awesome, some boards just have that wow factor. A great picture also helps, even the best set of boards can fail to impress with a grainy, lo-res picture.

What do you think of the boards? Let us know in the comments or on Facebook!

Best Boards Q1 of 2013The first few months of 2013 were pretty quiet around the forum.  There might not have been as many awesome boards as we usually have, but there were definitely a few worth sharing.  Our 6 best boards from January, February, and March of 2013 represent a pretty solid mix of what’s happening in the world of cornhole board building.

We’ve got a few full board decals, a couple that are hand painted, and a couple that show off some of the more creative things you can do when building boards.

Our “Best 6″ are pulled from the Gallery section of the Cornhole Game Players forum. Boards are selected based on creativity, originality, craftsmanship, and photo quality. If you’d like to be included in future Best Boards events, all you have to do is share your boards in the CGP Forum Gallery. We also post all of the best boards on our Cornhole Facebook and Cornhole G+ pages.

How do we pick boards? More than anything, the boards should stand out from the crowd.  Awesome design, skilled craftsmanship, awesome paint job, ultra shiny poly, or maybe unusual features.  It’s all based on a picture, so the photo should be taken in a way that makes the boards look awesome.  Showing them as a pair is also important.  With thousands of boards posted over the last few years, it gets harder and harder to find unique designs, and things that are really unique, but we always do!

When it comes to casual outdoor games, many of the most popular ones are meant for only a small handful of players. In the right atmosphere, games like Cornhole, Badminton, Ladder Toss, etc. can be a lot of fun – but they’re somewhat limiting in terms of participants at a given time. So naturally, if you have a bigger group looking to play around outside, you need to look for other options.

There are popular choices for team outdoor games as well. Kickball, disc golf, ultimate frisbee, etc. can all incorporate fairly large groups of people. But here are 3 more options you might not always think of for casual outdoor games for teams.Handball1

Dodgeball

For some reason, people tend to think of Dodgeball as exclusively an indoor sport. Sure, it helps for the walls in a gym to contain stray balls, but the bottom line is, Dodgeball is one of the most versatile team games in existence. Play with volleyballs, order dodgeballs online, or if you want to get more intense about things, try it with tennis balls. You can set your own boundaries, make up your own tweaks to the rules, and even come up with various ways of making this a drinking game. One idea: every time a player gets knocked out, he or she has to complete a minor drinking challenge in order to re-enter the game. Of course it’s best to take it easy with these kinds of details, but it can add a new dimension to the game.

Handball

It’s always surprising how few people play this sport, but it’s actually a pretty big deal. Team Handball is actually an Olympic sport! It’s major in Europe, and you can even publicly bet on matches at Betfair news! This is a sports book online that covers all major sports with various gambling options, and sure enough, Handball is right there. Yet considering all you really need to play the sport is a ball and a few improvised goals, it’s incredibly easy to play in a backyard, the quad at a college, etc.

Quidditch

Let’s get something straight: playing Quidditch – the sport invented in the Harry Potter franchise – is completely ridiculous, and the movement to turn it into an NCAA sport is well beyond insane. Fun fact: people can’t fly on broomsticks, so this sport can’t exist. However, if you feel like taking it lightly and goofing off with some friends, it can’t hurt as a backyard guilty pleasure. You can set up goals pretty much any way you want, find a few different sized balls, and improvise a bit with some of the less realistic details of the game. For example, try giving “beaters” water balloons instead of balls. Consider having someone on the sideline randomly launch a tennis ball into the air now and then to simulate the “snitch.” It’s all ridiculous, but with the right tweaks it can be fun.

BestOfBadge_Q4-2012Fourth quarter brings the end of the season, as Winter takes hold.  It’s also when we see some of the best Cornhole boards, as people have had all year to dial in their handiwork.  This quarter we managed to narrow it down to our 16 favorite boards.  There’s a solid mix of creative design ideas, awesome wraps, stain/paint combinations, and a few other creative touches.

We have a great mix of themes this time around. NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB, College Teams, Army, Philly, Texas, and even some giant sized boards!

The boards in our top 16 are pulled from the Gallery section of the Cornhole Game Players forum. Boards are selected based on creativity, originality, craftsmanship, and photo quality. If you’d like to be included in future Best Boards events, all you have to do is share your boards in the CGP Forum Gallery.  We also post all of the best boards on our Facebook Cornhole page.

How do we pick boards?  When it comes to judging boards, there’s a lot to be said for the “Wow” factor.  A picture doesn’t do board construction much justice, so the design or overall look of the boards is really the most important thing here.  Enough can’t be said for the quality of the picture taken, too.  It’s amazing how many times we have to exclude awesome boards because the pictures are SO bad.

BestOfBadge_Q3-2013The third quarter of the year is always a great time for Cornhole Boards.  July, August, and September are some of the best months for both playing and building cornhole boards.  The Summer of 2012 was another great one for boards.  We have a solid mix of creative design ideas, awesome wraps, and even some wood burned and air brushed boards.

BestOfBadge_Q2-20122012 is really the year of the vinyl wrap for Cornhole Boards.  More and more, the design skills are being put to use in a computer before the physical boards even exist.  Hand painted logos and decals have some serious company with these wraps, but there are always going to be people who prefer one method to another.

BestOfBadge_Q1-2012The first few months of the year are a really quiet time on the forum, as everybody is usually still in Winter mode.  2012 was a great exception.  The lineup of boards for Jan-Mar 2012 is one of the most impressive we have ever had.  These 12 boards represent a variety of interests, with Sports, movies, hunting, and even refrigeration!
