Cornhole (also referred to as bags, sack toss, or bean bag) is a lawn game in which players take turns throwing 16 ounce bags of corn kernels at a raised platform (cornhole boards) with a hole in the far end. A bag in the hole scores 3 points, while one on the board scores 1 point. Play continues until a team or player reaches or exceeds the score of 21 by means of cancellation scoring.
Because corn hole bean bags were originally filled with kernels of corn. Today, they are filled with plastic resin for consistency of weight, flight and shape.
During each inning of play in doubles format, every player tosses four bags, alternating sides between each throw accumulating points until a team reaches (or exceeds) a score of 21. Scores are netted, so if team A scores 6 points and team B scores 2 points, team A earns 4 points. Because of cancellation scoring, only one team will earn points in each inning.
Cornhole Scoring Cheat Sheet:
Bag falls through hole = 3 Points
Bag lands on board = 1 Point
Bag lands on ground, but bounces onto board = 0 points. They call this a “Dirtbag” :).
If you are playing by ACO rules, you cannot bust in cornhole. First to 21 wins, no bust.
