Cornhole Rules and Regulations
Chapel Hill Mid-Year Program 2012
 
Online Registration is located here.


Cornhole is easiest to describe by comparing it to horseshoes.  Instead of throwing a horseshoe around a stake, a bag of corn is thrown into a hole on a wooden board.  It is often seen played before sporting events and at barbecues in small geographic pockets around the country.  Be sure to participate in the tournament during the Home-Brew reception.  If you just want to give it a try, there will also be a practice area.       



GETTING STARTED WITH CORNHOLE
  • Boxes are set up 24 feet apart from front of box to box
  • Form two teams with two people on each team 
  • Teammates line up next to opposite boxes and on opposite sides
  • Start with all 8 bags at one end

HOW TO PLAY
  • Previous game winner or coin toss determines which team throws the first bag
  • Throws alternate between teams until all bags are thrown
  • All throws must be made from behind the foul line (the front of the boxes)
  • If a player breaks the foul line, that player will lose a turn
  • The team that scores the most points in a round starts the throwing for the next round
  • If the round is tied the last team to win a round throws first
  • Any bag that touches the ground during a throw should be removed from the board and not counted
  • Throws during a round can knock opponents bags currently on the board either off the board (good) or into the hole (bad)

POINTS

  • 1 point for any bag thrown that is on the board, but not touching the ground
  • 3 points for any bag thrown in the hole
  • Any bag that touches the ground during the throw or while hanging from the board does not count


TALLYING THE SCORE

  • For each throwing round, the team with the most points wins the round and subtracts the other team's points from theirs.
  • The difference is added to the team's score that won the round.
  • The first team to 21 wins
