What is Bags?
Bags is similar to horseshoes except you use wooden boxes called bags platforms and bags instead of horseshoes and metal stakes. Contestants take turns pitching their bags onto the platform until a contestant reaches the score of 21 points. A bag in the hole scores 3 points, while one on the platform scores 1 point.
