When it’s your turn and you shoot, don’t step past the front of your Cornhole box, or it’s a foul and doesn’t count (unless you suck and need a handicap). When you throw, you can decide if a bounce counts or not (meaning if the bag hits the ground and bounces onto the board). The goal of the Cornhole drinking game is to reach 21 points first, and you can go over 21 points without having to reset your score, because it’s nearly impossible to enforce the rule without games going over 30 minutes. During a turn, players shots alternate. Whoever’s team scored more points in the prior round shoots first in the next round.
This is how scoring works:
- 1 Point: For each bean bag that is on the box
- 3 Points: For each bean bag that goes through the hole in the box
- The final score for a round is the difference between the two scores for that round
If you still don’t understand how scoring works, imagine if Player A and Player B are standing next to each other at one Cornhole set, meaning they’re on opposite teams. Player A gets 2 on the board (2 points) while Player B gets 0 on the board but 1 through the hole (3 points) resulting in Player B getting 1 point for his team for the round (3 – 2 = 1), so Player B’s team gets +1 point to the overall score and Player A’s team gets nothing.
If you lose the round, drink 2 for each point the other team scored on you!
