Leave it to the Buffalo area to host this one. The American Yard Games Championship is happening in Western New York! This WOULD happen in Western New York. I say all the time throughout the summer: 'Buffalo is obsessed with backyard and lawn games' and I'm here for it.

If you are having people over or a party, it's nearly mandatory that we have cornhole and Kan Jam in the backyard. Everyone knows someone that is really good at cornhole and this tournament could win them some serious cash.
