Length of Games
Traditional 21: The game shall be played to the pre-determined number of twenty-one (21) points. The first team to reach (or exceed) that amount at the conclusion of a frame is the winner.
Method of Scoring – Cancellation Scoring
In cancellation scoring, the points of one team cancel out the points of their opponent. Using this method, only one team can score in each frame. For example, if Team A scores 9 points at the top of the round and Team B scores 5 points at the bottom of the round, the 5 points get cancelled leaving Team A with 4 points for that round.
Overview of Team Play
■ Team A competes against Team B – each team is comprised of two (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/her bags.
■ Players at the footboard will take score and resume pitching back to the other cornhole board.
A coin-toss is used to determine which team selects one of the following options:
1. Choose the lane assignments
Lane 1: Designated pitcher’s boxes, on the left side of the board when facing your opponent.
Lane 2: Designated pitcher’s boxes, on the right side of the board when facing your opponent.
2. Choose their opponent to pitch against (Head-to-Head)
■ If option #1 is selected, the coin toss winner chooses their lane and takes their positions in the Pitcher’s boxes, then the opposing team chooses their own Pitcher’s boxes to determine head-to-head match-ups.
■ If option #2 is selected, the coin toss loser chooses their lane and takes their positions in the Pitcher’s boxes, then the coin toss winner will choose their own Pitcher’s boxes to determine head-to-head match-ups.
