4/11 - The Official Rules

Today we are going to go in depth on the official rules of cornhole. Although there are several different ways people like to play the game, standards have been set up to ensure consistancy from one game to the next. Obviously these standards can change a bit when you get into different age groups, but here is the overall outline on how the game should be played.

1. Setup of the Cornhole Field - Before you even begin playing the game, you need to find an area that will work to set up the boards. Try and locate a flat surface on your lawn, at the park, in a parking lot etc...The goal is to make sure you are on a level playing field so no one side has an advantage. Once you have located a good area to set up shop, the next step it to set the boards up 27 feet from one another. To the left and right side of the boards is where you will be tossing the bags (known as the pitchers box). With the boards facing each other, it's now time to start cornholeing.

2. Game Play - With everything set up, the next step is choosing who goes first. There isn't a science behind this so flip a coin, see who can chug a beer faster, or just start throwing the bags. With 4 people typically playing the game, you will want to alternate throws until all 8 bean bags are 27 feet across the way. Once all 8 cornhole bags have been thrown, the score is calculated and the opposite side can begin to throw them back.

3. Scoring - Scoring cornhole can be simple unless you are tailgating and have one too many drinks. Just remember:

- 1 point for landing your bag on the cornhole board

- 3 points for having your bag go into the hole cut out within the cornhole board

- 0 points for your bag not landing on the board or going in the hole.

Once all 8 bags have been thrown, calculate the points for both teams and subtract the smaller score from the larger score. (ex. Red scores 5 points, Blue scores 3 points -- Red gets 2 points for that round). The first team to hit 21 points wins the match and the next opponents are up.

4. Tips To the Game -  Here are several tips to make sure the game of cornhole stays fun.

- Clean area. This should go without saying, but if you plan on playing in a park or in your backyard, make sure there isn't any dog poop or debris lying around the area. Clean up the area to make sure nobody goes home smelling like feces.

- Solid boards. There is nothing worse than having boards collapse or wobble on you everytime you hit them. Make sure your cornhole set is in a sturdy position and can take a beating from the various ways people will toss the bags.

- Depending on if your right or left handing, stand on the opposite side of your dominant hand. For instance, if your right handing, it's easier to toss the bean bags from the left side of the boards than the right.

- Although children can play, they are often a big distraction at tailgates or backyard bbqs. Try and keep them occupied while it's adult time and then let them go nuts when it's time to eat or pass out.

- Learn some different throwing techniques. Cornhole is a game that can take a while to master. Try some different shots and see what works best. You may have a toss that works well for sliding, a toss that works well for trying to cornhole (just hit the hole), and even a toss for getting your opponents bags off the boards. Whatever it may be, never stop training.

This in a nutshell is the basic rules to cornhole. For more information, you can check out our rules page.

3/29/14 - Starting a Tournament

Interested in starting your own cornhole bag toss tournament? With a few simple steps, it's very easy to do. Tournaments have been popping up at parks, bbqs, tailgates, and almost any area where there is open space. Businesses are finding it a great way to host a corporate event and organizations are seeing good profits for charity purposes. Whatever reason you have for creating a cornhole tournament, here are several factors you need to consider.

1. Announce the tournament - Marketing can be fairly easy as many people are always looking for a game. However it's important to let people know, when, where, cost, and rsvp of the cornhole tournament so you can schedule the event accordingly. Having a site or posting flyers is an easy tactic to get the ppl you need.

2. Equipment - The last thing you want is to not have enough cornhole boards or bags. Once you set up the event, make sure you have the necessary bag toss equipment. You can even bring several cornhole bag toss accessories to help keep up with scoring and beverage drinking.

3. Rules - People tend to have different ways they play cornhole so make sure you set some ground limits. You can find official rules online or set some more of the standards and let the teams regulate it themselves.

4. Prices - A good cornhole tournament has to have prizes. If you had a registration fee, than a cash prize is most likely the best choice. Otherwise think of some creating prizes or you could even give away a custom cornhole set.

5. Have fun - The only way a cornhole tournament works is if everyone is having fun. Bag Toss is best played when there is food, drinks, sports, and friends and family. Find a good venue for the place and keep it entertaining.

 

3/27/14 - NCAA Tourney

With the first two rounds complete, the NCAA tourney begins again today. How will you be tailgating. Pick up your custom cornhole set and start supporting your team. There are several different ways to customize a cornhole set.

1. Bag and Board Colors - One of the easiest ways to show your pride is to get your teams matching colors. For cornhole bags you can pick up to two colors, but for boards, the options are endless. Some people like to go with the pyramid cornhole boards, while others prefer the striped boards. Whichever you go with, make sure to rep your teams colors proudly.

2. Cornhole decals - If you already have a bag toss set or looking to get a new one, decals can easily be applied. Fathead offers vinly stickers that can be applied right onto the board. You can choose from your favorite ncaa team, nfl, nba, etc... Decals make it easy to show off your team spirit and can quickly be changed out from sporting event to sporting event.

3. Custom Logo - If you are a superfan, consider creating a custom cornhole set with the teams logo and name. Very similar to a decal, there are ways to create a vinyl overlay where you can essentially add anything you want. Other than your favorite teams logo, you can add a player, basketball, national champs, your name, or whatever your mind thinks up. Custom cornhole logos show true spirit and will dominate any of your rivals sets.

 

Go through our different options of bag toss boards today and see which one will set you apart. With the NCAA tournament, you still have time to show off your teams colors and go for the national championship.

 

3/14/14 - Throwing the bags

The new cornhole season is upon us and the weather couldn't be nicer. As temperatures start to hit the 60's and 70's, more and more people are starting to play at parks across the U.S. With competition growing, it's time to start honing your skills. Here are some useful tips on how to toss the bean bags in order to get the advantage over your peers.

 

1. Angle is everything. Depending on how you prefer to toss the cornhole bags, you need to consider the slickness of the board. Throwing at a low angle will cause the bags to hit the boards and slide right off. Throwing at a high angle will cause the bags to land on the board and stick. Getting the right angle will allow you to hit the board and have the bag slide towards the hole. 

2. The type of toss. There are a lot of people who create their own style of throwing a cornhole bag. From under hand to even over hand, the way you throw it will impact how the bean bags slide on the board. Here are a few different variations you can try.

A. Standard Palm Throw - Probably the most common cornhole toss as it involves places the bags flat in your palm and underhanding it towards the oponents boards. If you toss it right, you shouldn't have much spin and as the bag hits the board flat, it will slide towards the hole. This is the easiest of the throws and the only thing you will need to work on is arch.

B. The Sacramento Sling - This cornhole technique involves pinching a corner of the bag and tossing it. There is a lot of spin on this throw and can be just as deadly as the standard cornhole throw.

C. The Omaha Overhead - This is not the most practical toss unless your a basketball player. In this technique you will wad up the cornhole bag and shoot it overhand. Typicall the arc of the bag toss will be high and cause it not to slide that mush so accuracy is everything.

 

In the end you can quickly make your own style and if proven effective, people will adapt and start using your throw. If you're new to the game, start with the standard toss to get the feeling down and then expand into your own creativity. Happy Cornholing!
