Play Cornhole at a Higher Level… the Rules of the Game.

When you’re ready for the next level, view the complete ACO Rules Guide for the Sport of Cornhole at AmericanCornhole.com. Below are the ACO Basic Rules for the Game of Cornhole. Follow them to get the backyard fun started.

What Equipment Do You Need?

2 CORNHOLE BOARDS: Approximately 24” x 48” with a 6” diameter hole, centered 9” from top of board and centered 12” from each side edge. The front of the board is 3” to 4” from the ground to the top of the playing surface. The back of the board is 12” from the ground to the top of the playing surface.

8 BAGS: 4 each of two different colors. Each bag is made from two fabric squares with double stitched seaming. The bags should be made from a durable fabric like canvas, twill, or synthetic suede. Each bag measures roughly 6” by 6” and weighs between 15 and 16 ounces.

How Do You Set Up The Court?

CORNHOLE BOARDS: Boards are positioned 27’ from the front edge to the front edge of the board.

CORNHOLE PITCHER’S BOX: A designated pitcher’s box is a 4’ x 3’ area at each end of the court and on each side of each board.

CORNHOLE FOUL LINES: The front edge of the cornhole board is the foul line.

How Do You Keep Score?

TRADITIONAL 21: The game shall be played to the pre-determined number of 21 points. The first player/team to reach or exceed that amount at the conclusion of a frame is the winner.

VALUES: A pitched bag that remains on the cornhole board playing surface at the conclusion of the frame is a ‘woody’, worth 1 point. A pitched bag that passes through the cornhole board hole at any time in a frame is a ‘cornhole’ and is worth 3 points.

FOUL BAGS: Refers to any cornhole bag that has not been determined as a ‘woody’ or a ‘cornhole’, or was designated a foul bag due to a rules violation. Bags contacting the ground prior to reaching the playing surface and bags pitched when a player has crossed the foul line are foul bags. If a foul bag lands on the playing surface or comes to rest touching the ground and the board, it must be removed immediately.

FAULTS: A fault occurs if a player puts his or her foot over the foul line front edge of the board during the throw, or if a player throws out of turn. A fault results in the bag from the faulted throw being removed from the playing surface, if applicable.

CANCELLATION SCORING: The approved method of scoring for the sport of cornhole is cancellation scoring. In cancellation scoring, the points of one player cancel out their opponent. Using this method, only one player/team can score in each frame. Example: Team Red achieves 1 woody (worth 1 total point) and 2 cornholes (worth 3 points each, 6 total points). Team Blue achieves 2 woodies (worth 1 point each, 2 total points) and 1 cornhole (worth 3 total points). This means that Team Red scored 7 total points in that frame, and Team Blue scored 5 total points, which nets Team Red 2 points for that frame (7 - 5 = 2).

Play of the Game:

SINGLES PLAY: Player A will compete against Player B. These players will both stay in their designated lane for the whole game. Players start the game at the headboard and will alternate pitching bags until each player has pitched all 4 of his or her bags. Players will then walk to the end of their lane to the other board, and resume pitching back towards the original board.

DOUBLES PLAY: Team A will compete against Team B – each team is comprised of 2 people. Each team will stay in their designated lane for the whole game. Players at the headboard will alternate pitching bags until each player has pitched all 4 of his or her bags. Players at the footboard will then resume pitching back towards the headboard.

PITCHING: Players alternate pitching bags (one player at a time) until each player has pitched all 4 of his or her bags. A player must pitch all 4 cornhole bags from their designated cornhole pitcher’s box. One foot must be completely within the pitcher’s box at the time of release of the bag. Players must not cross the foul line with their feet before the bag has landed.

PITCHING THE NEXT FRAME: The player/team who scored last shall pitch first in the next frame. If neither player/team scores in a frame, the player/team who pitched first in the preceding frame shall retain first pitch in the next frame.

RAKING CORNHOLE BAGS: If bags become piled inside the cornhole board hole and may interfere with or obstruct the next pitch, or if there is a question whether a bag would’ve fallen through the hole naturally, a player may request to ‘rake’ the cornhole bags that have fallen inside the hole. During raking, all efforts should be made to leave bags on the playing surface undisturbed, including any ‘lippers’ that may fall in unnaturally during the raking process. If a bag is resting on the raked bags, and unavoidably falls in the hole as a result of raking, it shall be counted as a cornhole.
