Cornhole Rules

Players: 2-4
Contents: 2 Cornhole boards, 6 bean bags (2 sets of 3)
Objective: The first team to score 21 points wins. (A team does not have to hit 21 exactly to win.)
Setup: Completely rotate the legs of boards. Place the boards facing each other 27ft apart. (33ft distance measured from center of hole to center of hole.)

How to Play Cornhole aka Bean Bag Toss, Bag Toss or Tailgate Toss:

Each team has 3 bags of the same color. Players must not move past the front of the board while tossing their bean bag. Any player that steps past the front of the board while throwing will have their bag removed from the board. Likewise if a player tosses out of turn. Teams alternate tosses each round starting with the last team to score. To begin the game a player from each team will toss one bag. The closest team to the hole will toss first.

How to Score:

Bags that land and stay on the board are worth 1 point. Bags that go completely through the hole are worth 3 points. Players are not allowed to bounce bags off the ground. Points cancel each other out. Example: Team A has 2 bags on the board and 1 in the hole for a total of 5 points. Team B has 3 bags on the board and none in the hole for a total of 3 points. Team A would get 2 points for the round (the difference of team A’s 5 points and Team B’s 3 points).

The first team to 21 points wins!

GOOD LUCK and ENJOY TAILGATE TOSS, THE “ORIGINAL” BEAN BAG GAME!
