its something like horse shoes but you throw a bean bag through a hole in the board, each opponents bag cancels out one of yours so only the unmatched bags in hole count.

if you miss the board or go off the back end then its a penalty point

Can you clarify? Are you actually stating the rules as you understand them or is there some funny reference you are trying to make that was not understood? Your reply is a bit confusing to me.

Either way, if you are actually trying to explain the rules of cornhole you are partially incorrect. Perhaps that is what's Kosmo and Ricky were responding to.

you get 1 in the hole they get 2 they get 1 point

you get 1 in the hole they get 1 no one gets a point

if you bag goes off the end of the board, or you miss the board completely, then you lose a point

its like horse shoes in that each team gets a turn to throw and you can cancel out the other persons points with your own and you are aiming at a target from a set distance where you have to stand and you cant step over the line

its rare they ever miss so most people dont realize you get a penalty if the bag goes off the board.

i dont think it counts against you if your bag is knocked off the board by the other guys bag.

its been on TV for years, how can anyone have missed seeing it being played

What sort of cornhole are you playing?

Unless I am missing a version of the game that I have never seen, this is not true. You get zero penalty points for missing the board. I have to think this is why you got the reply you did.

Ohio is a huge Cornhole state (which isn't a brag ) and I have played countless times and that has never been a rule.

ACL american cornhole league plays on ESPN all the time, try watching it and you will learn the rules

it usually when the hole is blocked and they have to airmail a bag into the hole, thats the main time when they can bounce it off the board if they miss

From the ACL 2021-2022 rule book:

quote:

iv. A bag that neither went through the hole nor is lying on top of the
board at the end of the round is valued at 0 points.

well thats just being overly dramatic but yes its about like watching fishing, darts, bowling, or golf, if you are not the one playing the game then there really isnt much to get excited about just watching it.

now if we had the Hawaiian tropic bikini team out there playing it in their bikinis there would be much higher ratings

all i know is ESPN announcer says thats a penalty point every time if a bag goes off the board, he says it every single time it happens which isnt often, but he says it every time.

according to the schedule ESPN WHD will have ACL on tomorrow monday 8-8-22 from 7am-9am
