Got questions about cornhole boards?   Slick Woody's stock tournament size board 

Here at Slick Woody’s Cornhole Company, we love to help our customers learn more about the game of cornhole. Whether they’re asking about the different types and sizes of cornhole board sets, want to know more about the rules for playing, or just need information on which of the many accessories will improve their game play (or impress their friends). In any event, our goal is to help our customers choose–or create–the coolest, hippest, most rad and fun cornhole game possible.

In the eight years we’ve been in business, we’ve answered hundreds of questions from eager cornholers just like you. And when we looked at those questions more closely, we noticed seven questions that just kept popping up over and over. And no, one of them wasn’t “are cornhole players really called cornholers?” That one is just a given.

Without further ado, here is the list of the seven most frequently asked questions we hear about cornhole board sets:

  1. What materials do you use to make your cornhole boards?

Slick Woody’s boards are composed of three primary components:

The Frame

  • We use 1” by 4” hardwood poplar.  Our wood is computer cut and put together with pocket screws to hide all the hardware.
  • A back brace prevents “bounce” during bag landing for superior play performance.
  • Two handles have been cut into the frame for ease of carrying your cornhole boards.

The Leg System

  • We use two simple bolts and utilize an easy use leg pullout system.
  • We have added a crossbar for extra leg stability.

The Board Top

  • Our premium tops are the best in the industry, constructed of ⅝” baltic birch.  Baltic birch is the smoothest and flattest plywood in the industry allowing us to offer you the best playing surface available.  Our smaller boards come with a ½” baltic birch top.
  • Our playing surface uses a proprietary process where we first add a vinyl layer that is actually adhered to the top of the board.  We then apply either a stock or custom digital image to the board itself.
  • UV inks are used on our images to prevent sun fading.
  • No lacquers or varnishes are used on our board surfaces to ensure that regardless of the temperature or humidity the board play is consistent.  What that means to you the player is that hot or cold, wet or dry, your Slick Woody’s cornhole board set will offer you and your friends the most consistent playing surface available today.



   2. Does Slick Woody’s make different size boards?

Yes, Slick Woody’s makes FOUR different boards for your enjoyment.  I will now describe them to you from largest to smallest in size (and cost).

    Tournament Boards

    • This is our flagship product and is our premium cornhole board set.  Tournament boards are best for people who love cornhole and play it often.  You do not need to be a tournament player to purchase these boards.  You just need to be a value/quality buyer.  These are ACA/ACO regulation sized boards and at 2’x4’ are the largest most sturdy board available.

    Tailgate Boards

    • Our Tailgate boards are very popular due to their superior construction for a 2’x3’ board.  These boards weigh less for ease of transportation and storage in your vehicle when you are at the game.  Made of the same great materials as our tournament boards, Woody’s tailgate boards are a great compromise for ease, cost, and playability.  The primary difference is we use ½” tops versus the ⅝” tops of the tournament boards.                                                                                  All Weather
    • Finally a corn hole board that can continue to play on in the rain!! These one of a kind boards are made of a composite material that is used for a lot of outdoor decking!! The specs to this board are exactly the same as the tournament sized boards that Slick Woodys has to offer!

      Quarterboardz

      • One of the hottest new “table top” games in America is a mini cornhole board played with quarters or custom tokens.  At 6” x 4” x 1”, these new boards are sold by us as Quarterboardz.



         3. What comes with my set of cornhole boards?

      • Each Slick Woody’s Cornhole Company board set comes with a full set (8) of color coordinated corn filled bags.

         4. Can you print custom images on the board tops for me?

      • Yes.  Slick Woody’s has a dedicated graphic arts team to facilitate the creation of the perfect picture for your board top.

         5. Do you offer an inexpensive cornhole board set that I can build myself?

      • Funny that you should ask.  We’re glad you did.  Slick Woody’s has the industries leader in Do-It-Yourself cornhole board sets.  We call it the DIY Cornhole Board. Decorate It Yourself!!
      • Our research and development department tried to recreate our premium tournament set at a better price. Here's what they came up with:  an unfinished cornhole board set that is made of the same components as our best selling products.

       

         6. What accessories could further enhance my enjoyment of playing bag toss?

      Slick Woody’s offers a complete line of cornhole accessories and apparel that complete your game experience.

      Some of these cornhole accessories include:

      • Scoring Towers - stop trying to keep track of the score in your heads…..end the arguments…..fighting is not cool!  
      • Our scoring systems are light weight and easy to store and will keep the game going smooth!                                                         
      •  
      • Pro Style Resin Bags - for my money the BEST accessory.  I love these bags.  Slick on one side for sliding on your slick board.  Micro suede on the other side of the bag creates an immediate stopping bag to block your opponent's next shots.
      • Soft comfortable tees to very cool caps just make the game fun and tells the world of your love of our cornhole games.
      • Cornhole Lights allow you to play cornhole all night long.
      • Our “Light Up” Cornhole Bags are very unique and allow the game to continue after dark.

         7. How long will it take to receive my order?

      • Stock items will ship in 2-5 business days or less, depending on inventory levels.
      • Custom items will vary based on your artwork and materials.  Your Slick Woody’s customer service person or our graphic arts department can help you understand the lead time for custom products.
