How to Play Cornhole : the German-American Way, An Expats Guide


Cornhole: The Game Anyone Can Play & Everyone has Fun!

Before play begins, players must agree on either a singles or doubles match.


In a singles match, one competitor competes against another. Both competitors toss from the same board. After each inning, the players switch boards and aim at the other target.


In double play, two teammates compete against two other competitors. One competitor from each team tosses from the same platform; the two remaining competitors toss from the other board. At the conclusion of each inning, the players switch boards and aim at the other target.


A cornhole game is divided into innings.


In singles play, both competitors pitch four bags each from the same board, alternating between players. The inning is complete when all eight bags have been tossed.


In doubles play, two opponents pitch four bags each from the same board, alternating between players. When two competitors have finished, the other two players toss their bags in the same manner from the other board. The inning is complete when all four participants have tossed.


Each board has two pitcher’s boxes. A player may toss from either side of the board, but must remain in the same pitcher’s box for the duration of an inning. He or she may switch to the other pitcher’s box in the next inning if the player so chooses.Once the player steps into the pitcher’s box, he or she has 20 seconds to toss the bag.


A player must toss with the same hand for the entire match (or tournament).


Pitching order:The player who scored the most points in the preceding inning tosses first in the following inning. If no one scored in the preceding inning, the competitor who pitched second will be the first player to toss in the following inning.


In doubles play, the player who is not tossing must respect the space of the pitching opponent. He or she must stand at least 2 feet behind the competitor.


The beauty of cornhole is the ease and simplicity of the rules and gameplay. This makes it an excellent way to get to know your neighbors on a nice sunny afternoon. Also, for those of us expats living in places where language barriers exist, cornhole provides a great way to meet and play with your non-English speaking neighbors.
