Cornhole, sometimes called bag toss, has been a favorite pastime of tailgaters, barbecuers and others in parts of the Midwest — though its origins are disputed (different sources credit people from 14th century Germany, citizens of Cincinnati, Native Americans in Illinois and a pioneer in Kentucky for cornhole’s invention). Although it has long been a favorite regional lawn game, people all across the U.S. have come to enjoy cornhole.

Now, you can play this fun game while splashing in the refreshing pool. A company by the name of Airhead has created an inflatable game called Lob the Blob that is essentially a floating version of cornhole. (It’s currently sold out on Airhead.com and at Amazon, but it is available on Walmart.com.)

Cornhole For The Pool Or Poolside

The set features two targets constructed from heavy-gauge PVC that inflates (and deflates) quickly and easily. Grommets on the corners of the goals let you anchor the targets in the water or tether them to the ground. Each target has a 37-inch-by-26-inch playing surface and a 10-inch hole.

The game also includes four green “blobs” and four blue ones. The weighted blobs allow for accurate tossing, but they also float, so there’s no need to dive into the lake or pool to recover them.

As you can see from this post on the Airhead Water Sports Instagram profile, you don’t need deep water to stay cool and have fun.

“What’s better than corn hole?” they wrote. “Corn hole in the water!”
