Cornhole is a lawn game in which players take turns throwing bags of corn at a raised platform with a hole in the far end. A bag in the hole scores 3 points, while one on the platform scores 1 point. A game score of 21 is the target.
Cornhole is thought to have been first played in Germany during the 14th century. And then rediscovered as a rural pastime in the United States of America in the late 19th century.
Cornhole is a game which can be enjoyed by all ages, including mixed aged games. Making Cornhole an ideal family game.
Cornhole is a game which can either be played as a serious competition game, or purely as a fun game, for family entertainment.
Cornhole matches are split into rounds and innings. During each round, every player throws four bags.
Bags are tossed from the pitcher’s box which is the rectangular area directly to the left or right of a platform. The bottom of the platform forms the foul line. Players may not step over the foul line while pitching, if they do the point does not count.
In adult competition the holes in the scoring platforms are 33 ft apart. Shorter distances are used when younger players are participating.
Cornhole has two scoring systems, Regular and Cancellation, both with 21 the target.
To score bags must either be tossed into the hole or land on the board. A bag that falls through the hole is worth three points. A bag that lands on the board and is still on the board at the end of the round is worth one point.
Only the difference between the two scores after each round is awarded to the team with the higher score, thus lengthening the innings.
Cornhole sets can be purchased for as little as £70. Sets purchased at this price may only include one board, but do include two sets of three coloured throwing bags.
