Cornhole Nation

Conscientious readers Dilettante and Dilettard have just discovered what may be the greatest Wii game, ever:

"Bags" -- which is Wii's answer to "Cornhole"

How is it possible that I am such a Johnny-come-lately to any game with such a dirty-sounding name?

Some scatologist I am.

Well the really sad part is that I figured there was no way there'd actually be a Wii version of this (I figured the naughty version would be more likely, frankly).

But I knew deep down that now that there's a Wii in your home, you'd of course want there to be a version of cornhole for it. Soon you will be complete.

I am feeling at peace with the world. I thought it was the holiday spirit, but your theory of knowing that Wii cornhole exists is actually more likely.

a) are you as shocked as I am that this is based in Arlington rather than Ashburn?
b) sounds like a must-do for the dilettantes.
c) Dilettard is my hero for finding this.

Please--I found this a long time ago. I thought I had sent you the link before? Dilettard is a poser.

I say we enter the next tournament--it involves drinking, so the whole two birds, one stone rule would apply.

So the idea is you dip your bag into the cornhole? Is there a bag retrieval system or does one have to reach around to grab one's bag? Or do you grab your opponent's bag? I imagine that is just common courtesy.

Kathleen said...

Dilettante...no you never sent it. I'm sure I would have remembered it. It is you who is the rock star and I'm sorry that I told the poser he was my hero.

How long would it take the dilettantes to simply dissolve into a laughing fit at that activity?

And KevStar...it is courtesy to reach around and grab the opponent's bag. Thanks for clarifying...
