OK I'm planning to move there in about 6 months or so. So I like to look at homes and get a feel for prices, sq. ft. etc. But today I saw a description that said the backyard had a "corn hole". What the heck is that???

LOL A "corn hole" is an outdoor/yard game. Many people around here construct the large game part and depending on what they build it from, it can be heavy to move. So, it's nothing bad nor something you can't get rid of if you prefer.

LOL, you got me laughing out loud shilo. Corn hole is a fun game. It's 2 boards with a hole in it and you throw 4 bean bags and try to get it in the hole. It's a very popular game in the Midwest that originated in the Cincinnati, OH area.

When my Kentucky-born husband told me we were playing corn hole at a party, I said, " We're doing what?!" It is a fun game.

I looked to see the game and how much and I can't believe that it costs about $100 or more. I did get the plans free from a site. But when I read it in the house description I just thought is that a name for an outhouse?? I also think it looks like a good game to play.

I hadn't even heard of corn hole until about three years ago when I saw someone at Thunder playing it. Since then it has gotten REAL popular though I don't see too many people in this area of Louisville playing it

LOL I had the same reaction the first time I heard about it. You'd think that they would have a better name for it!

It seems to be pretty popular in KY, though. We were at the Dick's in Oxmoor Mall (Louisville) this weekend and they had a whole area of cornhole sets on display!

When did they start selling them retail? I thought you could only get them at flea markets or individuals who make them. Learn something new everyday!
