Cornhole Rules

Players: 2 or 4 (when playing 4 players teammates should throw from the same side on opposite boards).

Setup: Place the two boards 27 feet apart from front to front.

How to Play: Flip a coin or rock paper scissors to determine who has honors in round one.  Each person or team should start with 4 bags of the same color. The person or team that wins honors shall begin play by throwing a bag at the opposite board.  Each person or team should alternate throws till all 8 bags are thrown.  The team who wins the round is given honors to throw first in the next round.

How to Score: If a bag lands on the board it is 1 point, a bag in the hole is 3 points, and a bag off the board is 0 points.  If a bag hits the ground then bounces onto the board then that bag should be taken off the playing surface before any bags are thrown.  The points cancel each other out.  Example: If team A gets 2 bags on the board and 1 in the hole (5 points) and team B gets 2 bags on the board and 2 bags in the hole (8 points) then team B would get 3 points.

How to Win:  The game continues until one team reaches 21 or more points.  You do not have to get exactly 21 points.
