This review is for: Tailgate Toss XL Platinum Edition Game (Sports)
“The front edge of the frame was starting to chip and fall apart after using the game once. For almost $140 you would think they would use some better materials. I sent it back after one day.
First off, they are using fiberboard with a wood veneer instead of a nice piece of plywood for the top. Not a good choice for an outdoor game since there is a chance it can get wet. Second, they chose cheap plywood for the frame which started chipping away immediately after a single use. This is because the front edge of the frame touches the ground and the board moves back slightly after certain bean bag hits causing the layers to separate. The frame should be a solid piece of wood to reduce the amount of chipping. Finally, they should at least coat the entire board with some sort of paint or clear coat to protect the cheap materials they are using. I also noticed that the board could use some more weight to prevent movement when the bean bags hit it. It kind of jumps up a bit.” (Amazon review)
I am very disappointed because I thought this was going to be a nice quality product”
Just look at the quality of the boards (or lack there of). No smooth routed edges, no routed hole, doesn’t appear to be regulation height, rough surface, and screw holes on the playing surface! Not ACO or ACA compliant.
This is not in my league.

These boards are ACA compliant and use a quality plywood top with a poplar frame. Collapsible legs, and routed edges. These boards are more in line with mine. Although there is no protective polyurethane or clear coat to guard against rain (or beer).
This price does not include bags.
