Simple Garden Rules

Below is a simple, yet fun, set of rules to get you started playing Cornhole...
  • The game is played with two teams. Each team plays with a set of four bags.
  • The first team to score 21 points wins.
  • The Cornhole Board/s should be placed 27 feet (c.8m) apart/from the throwing/foul line.
(A lesser throwing distance is recommended for junior players) 
  • Players take it in turns to throw ("Pitch") a bag to the board, using an underarm throwing technique.
Players must not cross the throwing/foul line when pitching their bags.
  • How to score points;
    • "WOODY" 1 Point for any bag pitched​ that lands on the board. (If a bag is touching both the board and the ground no score is given)
    • "CORNHOLE" 3 Points for any bag pitched that goes through the boards hole.
    • The score for each round is determined by calculating the difference between team totals for the round.
