Vine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
This Mainstreet Classics Micro Bag Toss set is exactly what you think it is by looking at the pictures and description, not that that's a bad thing.

This is simply a classic, corn hole bag toss set with 2 boards, 4 gray bags and 4 red bags. The only difference is that it is most definitely a micro sized set. The length of a board is about a foot and a half while the width is no more than a foot. The bags themselves are also quite small. So, this means that you can set up the boards indoors for a game because it's small enough, just temper your expectations on how well the boards work. Although it suggests playing at ranges of 20 feet, I find that to be far too long of a distance for these boards. The problem is that you're playing indoors, so you can't really lob the bags too high, and there isn't much room for the bags to hit the boards and slide in. You have to get pretty close to "swishing" the bags straight in the hole, because there is no forgiving slide effect. In fact, if you are playing on carpet, you're more likely to get help from friendly scoring bounces off of the carpet than you will from a good slide up the board. While 20+ feet apart is too far, inside of 10 feet becomes way too easy. You probably want to play in the 12 - 15 feet range indoors. The other problem is that the bags are significantly smaller than standard sized bags. I have large hands, and I can't find a comfortable way to hold the bags to release a straight toss. For kids, I'm guessing this won't be as much of an issue. Just keep in mind while you're playing indoors that these bags, while small, still have enough heft to knock vases and lamps off of tables with ease.

I really like how the game set folds up for storage and travel. The two boards have strong velcro backings, so they anneal to each other. Put your bags in a giant zip lock bag, and place them between the boards and you're good to go. The velcro seals tight and there are two cloth handles on the boards for easy carrying. It's a nice design touch and worth a star right there.

If you're thinking about using this set as a substitute for standard-sized game for playing outdoors, I doubt you'll be pleased. The bags are too small to toss straight at long distances, they can be really affected by wind, and there is no forgiving space for the bags to slide up the boards. However, if you want to bust this out at winter-season family parties while indoors, especially to keep kids entertained, I think this set works well. Unless, of course, you wind up breaking a lamp...

I was shopping for a full size corn hole game and didn't pay attention to the dimensions. So, that is my fault!
It is still fun to play and stores nicely. I would recommend this for children, especially good for indoor play.

I read the reviews and looked at the specs, but it's still a little shocking how small it is. It's still very fun and the quality is nice. I think the price is a bit high for the size, this is really more of a $20 set, but we're still enjoying it.

We bought this for when we travel in our MH but we're using it now on the patio. My wife and I go out everyday and play one game. Practice, Practice, Practice.

Love that I can pack these up and take to the park, beach, etc. Note: smaller than the standard size, but that is what I was looking for.

My neighbors and I play this for hours! It can also be a great drinking game, just be creative with the rules. Definately refined it!

Actually bought these on accident, thought they were the full size bean bags but obviously read them wrong! Really fun for indoors though!

DIdn't notice the "micro" in the title. This set is tiny, like a table-top version. I thought it would just be a little smaller than normal, but no. Had to return it, just going to make my own, it's stupid how expensive these are when they're so easy to make.

The Mainstreet Classics Micro Bag Toss is a simple concept. You just set up the two solid wood boards (away from lamps if you are inside). Then you take turns tossing the bean bags into the slots. That's really it, and it is surprising how much fun this can be. You can even make up your own rules or variations.

Now, here comes the preachy part. It was Thanksgiving, and we were all sitting around, miserable from eating too much. Practically everyone reached for their latest iDevices, and started texting, posting, etc. I decided to pull this out, and it was an instant hit. The game got people off the couch, and more importantly, it got everyone together, competing against one another and having real family fun without wasting away in cyberspace.

I would recommend it, even if you don't use it every day. Just pull it out from time to time and start tossing bean bags into the slots (or try to). You will find that this seems to attract others to compete with you, and before long, people are having fun together.
