Are you ready to play cornhole? Before, let’s get to know the cornhole rules first. As you can see, rules are important. Even for lawn game such as cornhole. Without further ado, here are the rules for setup, gameplay and scoring.

Setup

For the setup, you need to find a nice flat surface. It can be your lawn, a parking lot, beach, etc. Next, set up the boards directly facing each other. The distance between the boards should be 27 feet. The game can be played with 2 or 4 players. Pick whichever side of the board you will throw from. In a 2-player game, let’s say you start throwing from the left side of the board, you will walk directly across to the other board. And then, throw back from the right side of the board. In a 4-player game, your partner’s pitching box will be across from you. Finally, pick your bags, each team get 4, and get ready to start.

Gameplay

First off, decide who goes first. Then, take turns throwing bags with your opponent. If your opponent throws first, then it is your turn to throw the bag afterward. Then your opponent, then you and so on. Keep in mind that your feet should not go past the front edge of the board. If, however, you do, it is a foul. And you will get pelted with cornhole bags.

The tossed bag may not touch the ground. If they do, and they bounce up on the board, remove them before any other bags are thrown. Remove them as well if they are hanging off the board and touching the ground. Once all 8 bags have been tossed to the other side, add up the score. The team that earns the most points will get the first turn for the next round.

Scoring

When all of the bags have been thrown, a bag that remains on the board is worth 1 point. A bag that went in hole, 3 points. The equal points cancel each other out. The game is won when a team reaches 21 points, with 2 or more points lead.
