Washers Versus Cornhole – Things Washer Players Could Learn From Cornhole Players

Washer Toss and Cornhole, two tossing games that have quite a bit in common, yet these games attract different types players.

Just for fun, I’m going to compare Washer Toss to Cornhole. What follows is a list of things that I think Washer game players could learn from Cornhole game players cornhole game.

Customize! Cornhole players have gone beyond making boards just for playing a game. Cornhole boards are often times works of art! Some Cornhole boards are so amazingly crafted and decorated that it’s a shame to toss bags of corn at them. Washer boards and boxes are generally well made, too, but most lack that extra effort. Washer boards need color, graphics, lettering, etc. Go that extra mile! Come on Washer Players, let’s see some creativity!

Standardize. Washers is played different ways with different equipment almost everywhere the game is played. Eventually there might be standards for size, hole sizes, hole spacing, scoring, etc. Variety is great, but a standard could really increase the game’s popularity.

BUZZ. I don’t mean from your drink of choice! Cornhole is a ‘trendy’ game right now. It seems to be everywhere, showing up in new places all of the time. That’s not to say there aren’t people all over the country playing washers, too, but there isn’t the same excitement for the game. Build some Washer games, seek out other players, hold your own tournaments, give people games for birthdays and holidays. If you’ve got a passion for the game, let people know.

Share. This is really the summation of the previous points. Cornhole has developed into a very popular outdoor game over the last few years, while Washers has failed to keep the same aggressive pace. I think the lack of Customization, Standardization, and Buzz are the three biggest factors. Cornhole and Washers are both great outdoor games, and hopefully someday everybody will know about both of them.
