RULES

Game set up:

Set up your boards directly facing each other with 27 feet between the front edge of each board. Cornhole can be played with 2 or 4 players. Pick which side of the board you’ll throw from. In a 4-player game, your partner’s pitching box will be directly across from you. In a 2-player game, if you start throwing from the left side of the board, you’ll walk directly across to the other board, and throw back from the right side.

Rules:
  •  Each cornhole team shall have 4 bags of one color.

  •  A coin flip shall determine which cornhole team has honors in round one.

  •  Game continues by alternating throws between the two opponent players until all 8 cornhole bags have been thrown.

  •  If a cornhole bag hits the ground then bounces up onto the board, that bag shall be taken off the playing surface.

  • The cornhole game continues until one team reaches 21 or more points. (this may cause a problem, players like to hit 21 exactly and if they go over the points reset. Up for debate)

  •  2 games per night.

 

Fouls:
  • A cornhole players foot goes past the foot foul line, termed a foot foul.

Scoring:
  •  3 points for a cornhole bag that goes through the hole.

  •  0 points for a cornhole bag that is on the playing surface, but also touching the ground.

  •  0 points for a cornhole bag that is hanging off the front edge and is resting on a cornhole bag

  • that is on the ground (unless the cornhole bag on the ground can be removed without making the hanging bag fall to the ground, then one point is given).

  •  The cornhole team with the highest round score, adds the difference of the two scores to their game score.

  •  The cornhole team who wins the round is given honors to throw first in the next round.
