You then throw bean bags (or corn filled bags) towards the boards, with the goal of getting them in the hole. You score 3 points for getting a bag in the hole, and 1 point on the board.

Satan's Steed with his devily eyes with the Denver airport in the background

Satan's Steed is one of the nicknames of the blue horse sculpture just outside of the Denver International Airport. The horse's creepy red eyes attract all sorts of disgust from the Colorado public, who lament the fact that the sculpture is placed so prominently at the gateway to the city. Adding to the mustang's mystique, scupltor Luis Jimenez died when the horse's head broke off and fell on top of him. His sons finished the job and had it installed in February of 2008.
