We are proud to announce that The Day of Games and Brent Wagner were featured in the USA Today Fall Special Edition of Your Life: Guide to Men’s Health. The Magazine is on newstands now. Go get one!
The article is entitled Outdoor Games and was written by Larry Weisman of USA Today. Here is what he had to say:
Quoted from article featuring The Day of Games foldable cornhole boards:
“Cornhole: Eight bean bags and two boards with holes in them make up the equipment. The object: Toss your bean bag (from a distance) through the hole in the board, then your opponent tries to do the same. Or knock your opponents’ bean bags off the board. Kind of like shuffleboard. Or horseshoes without the clanging.”
Additionally, there was some commentary from Brent:
“Brent Wagner: Founder of The Day of Games, a casual game manufacturer headquartered in Los Angeles
- “This all started in 2006 with eight of us who lived in or around Marina Del Rey, Calif. One weekend we would get up at 9a.m., stay up until midnight, party, and play every game. We called it The Day of Games. That whole concept spun into this brand.”
- “All the games are gaining in popularity. They give people a chance to get off the couch and be social, going out and hanging out and meeting new friends instead of watching TV after work with a bowl of cereal.”
- “Our target is the 20- to 30- something tailgaters and the college guys who are playing games. We feel people like playing games with one hand while having a cold beverage in the other.”"
