But what exactly is cornhole? And what are the rules to the game that’s rapidly making its way into picnics, family gatherings, and parties across the nation?
Well, much like the name describes, cornhole is a fun lawn game where players toss bean bags on wooden boards. The point of the game, so to speak, is to get the bean bag to go through the hole or on the board to gather the most points for you or your team.
The game requires wit and strength to aim, toss, and cheer each other on as they battle to acquire the most points. If you’re looking to start playing cornhole, the rules are fairly simple. The first thing you have to do is decide how you want to play. Cornhole can be played one on one with competitors facing off head-to-head. But if you’re looking for something to do with your friends, or even something the whole family can enjoy, then playing in teams is the way to go. After all, there’s no better way to show your family pride than celebrating your shared cornhole victory. So, pick your players and arrange yourselves into equal teams of 2. After that, decide who goes first. Once the order is decided, you’re ready to jump right in.
With the cornhole boards positioned 27' apart (Fun Bags offers a 19' apart option), players will stand facing each other. Equipped with four bean bags per team, players will have to devise a strategy for overcoming the distance and getting their bean bags to land on the board. Teams alternate throws until no bean bags remain. After that, the score is calculated, and the winner of the match is determined. The point of the game is to continue round after round until the first player, or players, reaches 21 points or better, and a cornhole victor is crowned. But the fun doesn’t stop there, as there’s always the option to up the stakes, and the fun, by calling for a re-match!
While gameplay is simple, there are some rules that have to be followed in order to ensure a clean and fair battle. First of all, players are not permitted to cross the foul line that exists in front of the cornhole board. This ensures that players are throwing from an adequate distance, while also raising the stakes as you devise a strategy to overcome the gap. While it might be tempting to clear the divide with an overhand toss, rules of the game dictate players must always use an underhand throw when trying to get their bean bags to the opposite board. Lastly, cornhole is all about clean and fair fun. Make sure you’re alternating your throws with the other players and making sure everyone gets their turn.
Cornhole isn’t just a game of skill. It’s a game of strategy. By landing your bean bag anywhere on the board you’re able to earn yourself one point. And if you land a bean bag on the board, but it ends up being knocked into the hole, then you’ve earned yourself an easy three points. With a little bit of skill, some strategy, and most of all, luck, you’ll be on your way to victory in no time! Just make sure you’re not missing the board. Any bean bag that lands on the ground or gets knocked off the board will earn you a whopping zero points. After the round is up, tally your points. Winner gets first throw in the next round until a player, or team, gets or exceeds 21. Once a victor is crowned, there’s only one question left.
