Setting up

Cornhole is best played on a flat surface, such as a lawn or at the beach. The two game boards are set opposite each other 27 feet apart.

Cornhole is played with either 2 or 4 players. Select which side of your pitching board you wish to throw. During a 2 player game, if you start from the right side of the board, on your next turn you need to walk to the opposite board and throw from the left side. In a 4 player game your team mate will be standing directly opposite you.

Each team starts with 4 bags... You are now ready to play!

Game Play

Take turns throwing your bags. Your opponent throws a bag, then you, then your opponent etc. A foul throw is called if your feet go past the front edge of your pitching board.

A tossed bag must not hit the ground first. If a bag bounces off the ground and lands on the board, that bag is removed before any further bags are thrown. The same applies if a bag is thrown, lands on the board, but any part of the bag is touching the floor.

When all 8 bags have been thrown, add up the score. The team with the highest score wins the round, and throws first in the next round.

Scoring

After all bags have been thrown, any bags remaining on the board are worth 1 point each, and any bags which went in the hole are worth 3 points.

Add up how many points you earned and compare them to your opponents. Equal points cancel each other out so that only one team can score per round. For example, if you scored 5 points and your opponent scored 3, you will add 2 points to your overall score and your team will throw first in the next round.

 

If you scored 6 points and your opponent scored 6 as well, there will be no points awarded and whoever threw first in the last round will throw first again. A game is won when a team reaches 21 points with a lead of 2 or more points. The first team to win 2 games wins the match.
