What is Cornhole?


An Introduction to Cornhole

If you’re looking for all things cornhole, you’ve come to the right place. When it comes to tailgating and backyard cookouts, cornhole is by far the most popular. In case you aren’t familiar, here’s the gist on how to play cornhole:

  • Two boards face each other, the backs of each elevated slightly. Each board has a 6-inch hole toward the top
  • Two teams, usually of two people each, take turns tossing beanbags (or corn bags, as it were) toward the opposite board (there’s usually one player per team at each board)
  • Score is kept based on the number of bags you get on the board or in the hole. 1 point for a bag on the board, three in the hole
  • Scores cancel each other out, first team to twenty wins

If you need more in-depth analysis, see our page on the official cornhole rules. Otherwise, just get out there and have fun.
