A great portable alternative.
If you are looking for a good portable corn hole set, this is the one. I ordered the cheaper Perfect Pitch item # 3413601 the first time around, and it was junk.
I can understand the reviews about getting a real wooden corn hole set, and the duck cloth bags being better, but this plastic set has several advantages. It is a bit cheaper (unless you count your carpenter labor as free), MUCH lighter, very portable, it can get wet without warping, it is much more compact for storage, integrated bag storage, integrated measuring string to set official distance, and it comes with a handy wall hook to mount to your garage wall. I've used real wooden sets - they are nice, but they are also very heavey and bulky.
I wouldn't get Baggo for Pro use, but it is great for recreational use - like backyard fun, family picnics, church socials, etc.
The only manufacturer suggestion I would have is to make the bag holders on the back of the board a bit deeper - you have to play with the bags a few seconds to get them all thin enough to slip in the slots. The reviewer that suggested the legs collapse must have had an older version as there is no way the legs will collapse on the one I received - they lock in place.
Fun, portable toy with decent quality
We picked this up at Dick's today after reading some of the good reviews. The kids love it and it's fun for the whole family. It is definitely worth the extra $20 over the other chinsey products they sell. The bags are made of a heavy grade denim with weighty beads in them (as opposed to cheap nylon and sand in the others). It's very compact, folds up nicely, and would be easy to thrown in the back of the car to take to the beach or a picnic. I like the build-in score counters, as well.
I guess the only down side is that the bags tend to bounce and slide of the slippery plastic easily. Oh well ... adjust your play. It's not as heavy duty as the home made units constructed from 2x4's and heavy plywood that use real corn filled bags, but it's WAY easier to lug around and almost as fun.
Much easier to haul than traditional corn hole games and just as much fun. I got mine at Dick's on sale and am amazed at how compact it is to carry, yet plays like any other. A lot of thought went into the design. If you want a fun, durable game thats easy to take with you then Baggo is a great choice. I left the decals off which should make it easy to clean.
Great Game and set
Only improvement I would make is the bags. Would be nice if they bag material is waterproof. I refrain from playing when the ground is wet to make the bags last. In the meantime, there are bags out there that you can purchase that are weatherproof......make sure bag weight is the same (9.5 oz for this set). Some bags (3/4 lbs for wooden boards) are much heavier and could damage the board.
Fun game - very competitive - easy
If you've never played Baggo, you don't know what you are missing. Fun for the entire family. Took this camping, had hours of fun...kids to seniors...could not stop...played into the dark.
Will take to every family get-together.
Now we have 2 sets, one for the adults and one for the kids.
A good quality product
The portable baggo game is excellent for any type of outdoor gathering. I've had mine for five years (four years of college) and the thing is still in mint condition. If you're looking for a convenient way to have some fun, [$] for one of these bag sets is definitely worth it.
this is a great product, great design, easy to break down and move... you name it and they thought of it.
the only downside is the board slides a little "quick". I'm used to playing on a wooden surface so switching to a plastic surface is quite different.
GREAT FOR FAMILY REUNION.
I BOUGHT BAGGO FOR USE DURING A FAMILY REUNION WEEK AT THE BEACH. THERE WERE 18 OF US, INCLUDING 5 OF MY GREAT GRANDCHILDREN. BAGGO WAS A HIT WITH ALL AGE GROUPS. I CAN SEE WHERE IT COULD REPLACE HORSESHOES FOR CASUAL FAMILY GET TOGETHERS.
we found this a fun game that could involve the whole family, regardless of age.
Very well made and looks like it will last a very long time.
Lots of family fun times ahead!
Love this Game!
I absolutely love this game! Me and my friends play all the time. Great fun for everyone of all ages and events. We use ours at every Sat. tailgate. Can't beat it.
