Jack and The Bean Toss is exactly the same as the Cornhole game that you might know. We just liked our name better so called it that! The other difference is we added two more holes to make it more exciting, but other than that, it’s basically Cornhole. Three to four bean bags come with the game, so your guests will have several attempts to try and sink the bean bag into one of the three targets on the raised platform. Each target is labeled a point value so keep track of everyone’s scores throughout the night. We like this game because of the simplicity of it, how easy it is to transport, and how it can be used at so many types of events, for so many different age groups. Jack and the Bean Toss is very versatile and a great price! We love how it folds together to fit into practically any vehicle, and there is really no explanation required to play. Bean bag toss games are well known and everyone understands that you have to throw the bean bag towards the hole without any demonstration – simple!

How to Play and Make a Profit - DOUBLES
How to Play Doubles
This requires you to rent TWO Jack and The Bean Toss games so that you can have a competition between teams
Place each board approximately 30 feet apart from each other.
Four players are split into two teams.
One member from each team pitches from one platform and the other members pitch from the other platform.
The first side of players alternate pitching bags until both players have thrown all four of their bags
Then the players pitching from the opposing board continue to alternate in the same manner until all four of their bags are delivered
First team to reach 1000 points will win!
How to Make a Profit with Doubles
Charge $5 per person, so after 4 players join to make up 2 teams, that will be $20 made for the Fundraiser
After you determine the team that won, take note that they won, and keep going with other teams competing
Nearing the end of the night, see which team had the best score, and they get to take home 1/4 of the money made! For instance, if you had 10 rounds of teams playing, that is $200 made. The team with the highest score gets to earn 1/4 of that money ($50) back, so they each keep $25, and the other $150 goes towards the Fundraiser
Or if you don’t think that you will have over 5 rounds, keep the profit made on the game, and give away a gift card to a restaurant / LCBO, or another donated gift to the winning team.
How to Play and Make a Profit - SINGLES
How to Play Singles
Two players play against each other.
Delivery is handled in the same manner as doubles play (see above)
Both competitors pitch from the same platform and alternate their pitches until all of their bags have been pitched
The first person to reach 500 points (if you want fast rounds) or 1000 points (if you have more time) wins!
How to Make a Profit with Singles
Charge each player a $5 entry fee
The winner of each game can win 10 Free Raffle Tickets plus a chance to be in the tournament
Take note of who won the round
At the end of the night, invite all of the winners into a tournament
They will again compete to see who can get to 500 first
The grand prize winner will win something big – such as a gift card to a restaurant, LCBO, sporting event, etc.
How to Play and Make a Profit - SOLO
How to Play Solo
This game is just when one person at a time is playing at any given time.

Make sure you have line of tape on the floor so they know where to stand and see who can get the highest score of the night!

How to Prepare for Pick up
We have highlighted in Green what you may want to bring with you so that you are well prepared. If bringing a car, you might need to remove car seats and not have any passengers in case you need to fold your back seats down.
How Heavy is this to Transport
A common question is to ask how heavy a product is, so that people know how many others they may need to bring to help lift this into their vehicle. With this product, one person is all you need! It is very light weight so you will be fine.
