Cornhole Boards

Pricing

The cost of a set depends on the design but here are a few of the most common designs. These prices include 8 bags and the extras mentioned above in ‘Construction Details’. Boards that are finished with poly come with 10 bags (1 extra per color in case one is lost). 

Finish Details

MN Tailgate boards can be finished with Semi-Gloss Minwax Polycrylic which is a water based protective finish. Oil based finishes turn yellow/amber over time whereas water based finishes are crystal clear. We use a HVLP sprayer to apply a minimum of 4 coats to the playing surface and 2 coats to the sides and legs. This is recommended on all sets to protect your boards especially on sets with exposed wood or decals (unless you want to paint/finish the boards yourself). 

Size Options

MN Tailgate builds boards in the tailgate size (2’x3’) and the regulation size (2’x4’). The regulation size gets its name as they are the dimensions for the official ACO regulations. This is the most common size sold and will be found at tournaments and bars. Note: Most sedan trunks cannot fit the regulation sized sets so they need to be placed in the backseat or by putting down the back seats. The tailgate size is simply one foot shorter in length. This makes for a more challenging game due to the smaller surface area. The main reason people get this size is its ease of transportation. You can place them in the trunk of your car and go camping, tailgating, to a picnic, to the cabin or a friend’s house.

Decal Options

MN Tailgate uses high quality vinyl decals for its graphics. This can be simple text blocks, logos or even full board decals. We use a specific decal vendor who specializes in cornhole decals. 

Paint Options

MN tailgate does our best to match the paint colors to decal colors. We have a Pantone PMS color swatch so we can get any color you desire. Painted sets have 1 coat of primer followed by 2-3 coats per color of High Gloss Behr paint. 

Stain Options

MN Tailgate uses water based stain from Minwax. See the image below for stain color options.

Construction Details

MN Tailgate boards are built to American Cornhole Organization (ACO) specifications. We use pocket hole construction (with the Kreg jig) along with wood glue so there are no visible screws. The holes are a perfect 6” circle and all edges are rounded. These sets are furniture grade quality. All board sets include a free drawstring tote to carry your bags, a measured string for setting up your game to the proper distance and basic instructions/rules.

  • Tops: ¾” Sanded Birch Plywood
  • Frames: 1”x4” Select Pine
  • Legs: Folding legs for easy storage with carriage bolts and wing nuts
  • Sizes: Either Tailgate (2’x3’) or Regulation (2’x4’)

 

The most basic boards that MN Tailgate has to offer are bare wood boards. These are just that – sanded bare wood. We can customize any set with paint, stain and/or decals.
