Baggo vs cornhole

Those who are new to cornhole game often ask if there is any difference between baggo and cornhole.

In terms of game play the short answer is no! Basically, cornhole is the same as Baggo, but the only difference is in the equipment.

Essentially Baggo is only a brand name that specializes in manufacturing a unique cornhole equipment. While the game rules and scoring is the same, Baggo cornhole boards are very different and much superior than basic wooden cornhole boards.

The regular cornhole boards are 4 feet long while Baggo boards are only 3 feet. So just a feet shorter!

Also Baggo boards are not made of wood, which means that your game performance might be different compared when playing on wooden cornhole boards.

Those are the only differences that might affect your game!

However there is no doubt that Baggo equipment is very high quality. Here are some of the main features and differences that make Baggo boards very practical:

  1. It’s lightweight – one of the main advantages of these cornhole boards is it’s weight. Compared to regular wooden boards Baggo board is much lighter weight. Even kids can carry Baggo boards and storing is a piece of cake. You don’t need a truck to carry them around!
  2. It can be stored fairly easily – because of the wall mounting bracket, suitcase and carrying handles it can be stored anywhere you want.
  3. It’s manufactured in the United States – for all of you US patriots out there, this is not another Chinese knockoff! Every Baggo product is made in the United States using high quality materials and highly skilled employees.
  4. It has adjustable legs so you can play cornhole even on uneven ground surface.
  5. Waterproof – forgot to bring your cornhole boards inside when rain started? No problem! Baggo boards are 100% waterproof so you can leave them outside even on rough weather.
  6. No need for additional scoring board equipment because these boards come with scoring keeper that is already built into the board.
  7. Bean bag storage pockets built directly into the board so you can store your Baggo bags when you are not playing



The best of all, you won’t be limited to playing cornhole only at your home or backyard. All of the listed features and benefits will let you carry it anywhere you go: to your friends house, cruise ship, holiday, office, you name it!

The beauty of Baggo is that it’s a standardized equipment, so you’ll always know what to expect. Contrary to that, there are way too many cornhole boards that are made out of different wood type, finishing methods and hole sizes.

However before ordering board equipment from this manufacturer please read the official rules of cornhole. You need to be aware that official board dimensions are different than Baggo board dimensions. Keep that in mind especially if you intend to compete on official and nationwide tournaments.

That being said, the main downside is that Baggo board is a foot shorter than regular cornhole board. As you know according to official cornhole rules the board should be 4 feet in length. So Baggo is not recommended if you practice for tournaments and take cornhole serious, because it’s not a standard board dimension.

You don’t want to practice on a 3 feet board and then later compete against others on a 4 feet board. If you intend to go to champinships then definitely consider either creating your board or buying 4 feet boards.

Baggo rules are the same as cornhole rules, the only difference is the board size!
