Cornhole Tips - (mostly of little use!)

  • 1. Clear the area of any debris that might ruin your bags, particularly dog poo !
  • 2. You can pace out the 27 feet (or less ?) but if you’re a real fanatic you’ll keep a small measuring tape or pre-measured string attached to the under-surface of one of your boards. Fancy!!
  • 3. Make sure your boards are in a solid and flat position . It’s hard enough without trying to land bags on a tilting board.
  • 4. Keep in mind that if you’re right handed your throwing arm will be more in line with the opposing board when you’re on the left side of the board and vice-versa if you’re left-handed.
  • 5. Cornhole is no place for children! The little stinkers love to get in the way, steal your bags, and climb on the boards. However, studies show that a bag to the head is an excellent method for teaching children to stay away. There is one exception to the No-Children Rule – see #6.
  • 6. Balance yourself by holding the other bags, a beverage, or any other random object in your non-throwing hand. This really helps! Furthermore, when your spouse tries to stop the game by insisting you hold the baby, you can thwart their evil plans by holding the baby AND playing Cornhole - but don’t throw the baby by mistake.
  • 7. Learn to toss the bag in different ways. A low, fast pitch will knock an opponent’s bag off the board. A high, lofty toss with some back spin will help you clear a barricade of bags without pushing your opponents into the hole. Spin your bag like a pancake and it will land gracefully on the board and slide right into the hole.
  • 8. Cornhole is one of the few sports where the more you drink the better you play – ask anyone.
