The games come in four different sizes. Tournament regulation, 24 inches by 48 inches, tailgating size, 24 inches by 36 inches, junior or kids’ size, 12 inches by 24 inches, and then mini desktop size, which is 5 inches by 10 inches.

Today we are going to focus on the regulation size boards, which are 24 inches by 48 inches, or 2 feet by 4 feet. These boards have a 6-inch hole cut in the surface, 6 inches from the top and 9 inches from the sides. The height of regulation boards is 2.5 to 4 inches from the ground in the front of the board, and 12 inches from the ground in the back. Now that we have our boards selected, we will need some bags. Cornhole is played with eight bags. Four bags in two different colors or designs. Bags are generally filled with 100% whole kernel corn. However, an all-weather filling is available.

How To Play Cornhole: Game Rules

Regulation weight is 15 to 16 ounces, and bags are approximately 6 inches square. After we get our bags, we will need a flat surface, large enough to place the boards 27 feet apart, from front to front. Kids, the elderly, and the disabled can throw from a junior regulation length of 21 feet from front to front. The area on either side of the board is called the pitchers’ box. It is a 4 foot by 3-foot area. This is the area where the bags are pitched or thrown from, and either box can be used during the game. However, once inside the pitchers’ box, the player pitching the bag must remain inside that box for the duration of the turn.

In singles play, both players must throw from the same board. In doubles play, the same general rules apply. However, teammates must throw from opposite boards. At the beginning of the game, the first turn is determined by rock, paper, scissors, or a coin toss. Once the game has started, rotation is determined by which player scored in the previous inning. If neither player scores in the inning, then the order alternates each inning until someone wins the inning.

Also, the player who is not pitching should remain two feet behind the pitchers’ box to ensure that you do not interfere with the player tossing their bag. Throws are alternated until all eight bags have been thrown. Once all bags are thrown, the inning is complete. Players must pitch from the same hand or arm for the duration of the game unless an injury occurs. Once the player steps inside the box, they have 20 seconds to throw the bags. Violation of these rules will result in a foul, and any points made on the tri will be negated. Besides, if your foot crosses the front of the board, that throw is considered a foul, and any points from the toss will also be negated.

Okay, so we now know what we need to play and a better understanding of the rules. So let’s take a look at how the score is kept. Any bag that lands on the surface of the board but not in the hole is called in the count and is worth one point. Any bag that makes it into the hole, either on a direct throw or if it is knocked in by another bag from either player, is called in the hole and is worth three points. Bags that miss, slide off, or are knocked off the surface by either player’s bags are considered a foul and are worth zero. If a bag hits the ground before coming to rest on the surface of the board, it is also considered a foul and is worth zero. Let’s take a look at a simulated inning to get a better understanding of how the score is kept.

Once a player or team reaches 21 or more points and all bags have been thrown, the game is over, and that team wins. If the cornhole or corn toss match is tied at 21 or more at the end of an inning, play continues until one team or another achieves a higher score at the end of an inning and wins the match. The game shall be played to 21 unless a team scores seven or more points at the end of an inning before the opponents score any points. In this case, the game is a SKUNK, and the team that scores seven or more points wins the match.
