Let’s Talk About
Sometimes cornhole play can be a touchy subject, but when
approached gently, it can be a fun and exciting time. Not everyone finds the
cornhole as pleasurable and fun as I do so let’s take a look into the nuts and
bolts of cornhole play and decide if it’s your thing.
Let’s talk about boundaries! You can’t just dive into
cornhole play without understanding you and your partner’s boundaries. Your
feet cannot go beyond the front edge of the board during gameplay or it is
considered a foul.
A simple but important rule of cornhole is keeping the
boards 27 feet apart. The supplied distance measuring string in each board
makes this an easy rule to follow. Sometimes cornhole play demands a bit more
room than expected and can be quite a tight fit if playing indoors. Cornhole
tends to be an outdoor activity.
Cornhole care is important. Excess debris or contaminants in
or around your cornhole can interrupt cornhole play. Take care to clean your
cornhole, your toss bags, and the area around to ensure a tidy and clean game.
Cornhole can be played with one partner or in teams. Generally,
if playing in teams, partners stand at opposite boards and throw towards each
other. Eye contact during cornhole play is not necessary. Throws are alternated
until all bags have been exhausted. A score of 21 is usually achieved before a
team may claim victory.
Cornhole is a fun and exciting game. With proper care, great
equipment, and great friends, cornhole can be a fun and enjoyable experience.
Just be sure to take things slow, know your boundaries, and keep the area clean
for great cornhole play.
