Chandler – The popular backyard game can put some serious cash in the pockets of the grand prize winners. The American Cornhole League who has a television contract with ESPN has prize money up to $1 million.

“Our top pro cornhole player made close to $20,000 last year,” said KB Kornhole Games Owner, Todd Kisicki. 

KB Kornhole Games opened in 2015 in Chandler with the goal of connecting the community through a fun experience. 

The rules of the game are simple.

“You get a point for every bag on the board, you get three points for every bag in the hole,” said Kisicki.

It’s all fun and games until the team is down to the last point to win, and the bag is in your hands.

A good tip for people starting off playing cornhole is to make sure you relax and when you throw the bag, make sure to finish with your palm up.

“Regardless of age I think that competitive nature doesn’t go away in a lot of people,” said Kisicki.

There are 15 different tournaments that include kids, seniors and other options for people to compete.

“This is a low impact sport; experienced players are supportive to help them learn how to play the game. The common thing I like to hear is its cornhole family”, said Kisicki.
