If you're planning on hosting backyard BBQs and cookouts this year, you're probably thinking about ways to entertain your guests while you're hard at work grilling burgers and sipping a margarita. When it comes to outdoor games, it doesn't get better than that classic staple of backyard competition: cornhole.

Sharing similarities to an 1800s parlour game known as Parlor Quoits (similar to horseshoes or washers), cornhole (also known as the bean bag toss game) is played by tossing a bag of corn kernels (or small bean bags) at a raised platform board with a hole at the far end. Tossing the bag in the hole earns you three points, while landing on the board earns one point. It's an ideal summertime game -- whether you're enjoying a round of beers with your buddies while tailgating or just enjoying some good ol' fashioned family fun.

Even better? You can take this game on the go. Now that you know the game rules, read on for 3 of the best portable cornhole sets for backyard lawn game fun all summer long.
