Game Summary

Simply put, Cornhole is this generation's version of the game Shoe Horses. If you don't know what Shoe Horses is, don't worry about it.

The object of Cornhole is to beat the team or player that you're playing against to 21 points. You do this by throwing large bags filled with weighted pellets onto a board about 20 feet away. The board has a hole in it, and if your bag goes into the whole, then you get 2 points. If your bag lands on the board and stays on the board through the round.

Each round consists of a player from each team taking turns to throw a bag onto the board across from them. Each player throws three bags per round, and at the end of the round, players count the number of points each team has earned in the round. Cancelation scoring is used, so if Team A scores 3 and Team B scores 2, then Team A will have earned 1 point that round (3 minus 2). Those points get added to Team A's total for the match.

When one team reaches 21 points the match is over and they are the winner of that match.
