About

Welcome to Cork Toss! The game for wine lovers and game enthusiasts! The game to change the landscape of tossing games.

What if you could have a portable tossing game you could play inside or outside. A game where you had almost unlimited game pieces and could easily change the game difficulty by changing the size of the glass. A game you could have at your home, at your business or both. A game that everyone wants to play. 

Cork Toss is an exciting game where Corks are the game pieces for a new era of gaming. With other games, if you lose or break a bean bag or ping-pong ball, you have to go to the store or stop playing. With Cork Toss, if you lose a cork, you just open a bottle of wine and you instantly have a new game piece! How cool is that?! 

We are all set to go with this fun and exciting venture. We can’t wait to get these boards into your hands so you can start playing with your friends, family, customers, and anyone else who loves a good time. This will be very exciting. With your pledge, you can say you where there with the Kickstarter launch. With your help, we can start a new trend where people will finally have something to do with all those corks they’ve been saving for that “special” project. 

Cork Toss! The best thing to happen to corks since wine! 

What Comes with Cork Toss?

Board and Corks
Board and Corks

With each Cork Toss Board pledge, you receive the following:

  • Cork Toss Board (1)
  • Cork Toss Corks (20)

Wine glasses are not included.  The board is setup so you can provide your own wing glass or plastic wine glasses.  We've tested it with a variety of glass sizes and they all work well.

How Do You Play?

CORKS

The corks are standard wine corks that can be any size. Champagne and Beer corks are not regulation unless you specify that they can be used for extra point shots. Example: regular corks are standard points but the one champagne cork can be double points.

GLASSES 

Any shape wine glass will work. The wider the glass rim, the easier to make. Please consider plastic glasses if you are concerned with participant safety. 

GENERAL RULES

The game can be played using different rules and point assignments but the standard game is as follows:

  • To Win: First one to 21 points wins 
  • To Play: Each player gets five cork tosses per turn
  • Distance: Standard distance from the front edge is five feet for beginners and eight feet for experts
  • Empty Glass: If you make a cork into an empty glass, you get 5 points
  • Filled Glass: If you make a cork into a glass that already has a cork, you get 3 points
  • Basket: If you make a cork into a basket, you get 1 point 
  • Waterfall: If you knock a stuck cork into a basket, you get 1 point
  • Tossing Style: Both overhand and underhand throws are acceptable but heavily debated
  • Harvest: Loser(s) pick up the corks

Comments From Our Testers

We set them up in the grass area of our winery and our customers loved playing the game. They especially loved the sound of the corks hitting the glass. Several customers asked to buy the boards to take home.
