When I left college back in 03,

beer pong was the game of choice.

come to find out after moving to a fairly transient city with people from all over the country,

that cornhole is a predominately midwestern game.

why when and how did people in NC pick up cornhole over beer pong?

i have been tailgating every season since ive graduated and this is the first time i've seen it as prolific as it has been.

do you guys play this that much outside of tailgating? did we get a huge class of midwestern kids?

whats the deal?

its entertaining and easily transportable.

i cant fit a pong table in my 2 door car, but i can fit cornhole boards.

as a drinking game, it's as prolific in the midwest as beer pong has been here

and prior to this season, i never saw ANYONE play it, let alone ever even heard of it

so

you're not really value added to the thread.

i have no doubt that if it's in the regular lots now, that it probably was being played in the student lot last year or the year before, i just never noticed it as widespread as before.

well it entirely depends on where you're from as to what you call it

similarly to how if you go alot of places they call beer pong beruit, and everyone gets a big hardon because they know "what it's really called"

that also further reinforces my point that it's a predominately midwestern played game

It was all over the place when I went to Grad School in Ohio. That, and fucking Euchre.

People, it's time for some real border control over these yankee hordes baying at our doors. NC is under attack.

the game originated from Ohio. i'm born and raised here in NC and had never heard of the game, but my roomate is from Ohio and has his own boards. We play it a lot at home and whenever we tailgate. its a pretty big deal up there and very addicting

To be honest, I'd never heard of Cornhole until this summer. I went to a family re-union up in Northern Kentucky/Ohio area and my cousins play cornhole all the time. I had never seen it here, but at tailgates this year I've seen more than a few people playing

never heard of cornhole before i came to grad school in atlanta - then we played it all the time

also had people get angry about people calling it flip-cup instead of cups

and people angry calling beruit beer pong

of course at the naval academy we played the fantastic game of drink the beer - time was limited so we couldn't be creative - that keg had to go!

we changed from beerpong to corn hole this season for many reasons... first of all, cornhole is easier to transport, etc.

secondly, when playing beerpong outside, wind comes into affect...

thirdly... I personally think cornhole is more fun...

I noticed people playing something similar to that at some Canes games last year.
