Backyard Games USA Seeks To Educate Players On How To Score Cornhole

November 24, 2020 at 21:03

Backyard Games USA, a cornhole boards and bags manufacturer from Illinois has released a post on its website to educate newer players on how to play cornhole.

According to the post, for a player to get a score, they need to toss the bag on the board or inside the hole that is on the raised side of the board. Players have 4 bags for every round, which is commonly referred to as an inning. When the bag goes through the hole, the player who tossed it will get three points. When throwing for a three-point score, the player can throw the bag directly into the hole or slide it onto the board and into the hole. Also, the player will score three points if they throw a bag on the board and knock any bag on the board into the hole.

Any bag that is still on the board when the inning is done will score one point. Scoring is conducted through cancellation. This means that if player x or team x scores 8 points and team y scores 5 points, team x has 3 points. Play should go on until one team or one player reaches 21 points.

The cancellation process works in such a way that the difference between the points scored by the teams or the players is awarded to the team that scored the highest points in that inning. This simply means that only one team will score points in any inning. For instance, if one team gets 1 bag in the hole and two on the board, they score 5 points, and the other team has 2 in the hole and none on the board, their score will be 6. In the cancellation, the difference between the two teams is 1 point and it will be awarded to the team with 6 points. Meaning that from that inning, they will have scored one point.

Since only one team can get points from an inning, it means that ties are impossible and only one team can reach 21 points at a time. The game continues until one team reaches 21 points. At the professional level, cornhole players can slide all 4 bags into the hole using different strategies. There are also defensive skills that are employed to slow down a game and force opponents into a corner of tough decisions. There are different rules but most people use official cornhole scoring rules.

The post also says that some variations of the rules use a strict 21-points win where the players or teams need to score exactly 21 points to win the game. If they exceed 21 points, they are taken back to 15 points, taken back to their previous score, and one point deducted in some rules. In another variation, if a team exceeds 21 points thrice before their opponents reach the 21 points, they are declared game-winners.

A spokesperson for the company says, “We are doing our best to keep the traditional tailgating game alive by educating newer and older players alike. With the advent of the digital age, the magic of enjoying a simple game of cornhole is lost on players who would rather stick to their smartphones. We released the post to encourage more players to give it a try. Publishing the rules on how-to score cornhole will help remove any ambiguity when players try the game on their own for the first time. We want more people to make this excellent activity a staple of their outdoor barbecues. This publishing effort is in line with our mission to resurrect the game by producing the best cornhole boards that money can buy.”
