Cornhole game rules & variants

In any sport, the rules are of course the most important. The same goes for Cornhole. As with other sports, you can use different rules.

What is certain is that each player has 4 corn bags or nowadays granulate-filled bags. A board to throw the bags on. 3 points for the hole and 1 for the board. The difference at the end of the turn is added to the total.

Official rules state that the first to reach 21 points or more wins. There are also other cornhole rules you can use to make it more interesting. The backyard rules:

Exact 21:

Very popular because it brings extra dynamics, a shape that we also recommend for friends and the standard wicked wood rules. The goal is to get to exactly 21 points and if you go over 21 you go back to 15. This extra element makes the cornhole players even more fanatical.

Non Cancellation

These rules are even simpler: All points scored by throwing the bags count. They are not subtracted from each other at the end of the turn. You can still play to 21 points or whoever has the most points at the end wins.

This variant also works very well as an entry level for children. A winning score of 15 is also good advice.

Speedhole:

In this variant of cornhole there are no turns, you don't have to flip the bags, but the goal is to throw as quickly as possible, who is the first to 21 wins. If your teammate picks up bags and hits an opponent's bags, the opponent scores an extra point.

Long Toss:

This variant of cornhole is not about the most points, but who scores the furthest away. Start at normal distance and throw a bag on the board. Whoever misses is eliminated and everyone has 4 chances. After each round, move back one meter until only one player remains. The official world record is about 23 meters.
