Cornhole | Bean Bags

Cornhole, also known as bean bags, baggo, bags, or sack toss, is a common lawn game where players (singles or teams of two) throw bean bags at a hole on an angled board to score points. Players score three points for throwing a bag through the hole, and one point for each bag that lands and remains on the platform. Cornhole is commonly scored with cancellation scoring where the total points for each team are tallied and the difference is awarded to the higher scoring team. Games are played until one team reaches 21 points.

Cornhole | Bean Bag Distance

Cornhole courts are most commonly played on lawn surfaces with the two cornhole boards (platforms) placed 27’ | 8.23 m apart. This distance places the holes at 33’ | 10.06 m and requires a total overall dimension of 35’ | 10.67 m. Pitching boxes at 3’x4’ | 91x122 cm are located on both sides of the 2’x4’ | 61-122 cm boards and designate the zones for players to throw from. At the front edge of the boards and pitching boxes is the foul line which players cannot pass when throwing their bean bags.

Cornhole platforms, or boards, have standard regulation dimensions of 2’x4’ | 61x122 cm. The cornhole hole that players aim for measures 6” | 15 cm in diameter and has a center located 9” | 23 cm from the top of the board. The surface of a cornhole platform is angled slightly at 10° starting from a bottom height of 3”-4” | 7.6-10.2 cm and ending at a top point of 12” | 30.5 cm. Cornhole manufacturers produce boards most commonly out of wood or plastic.
