There are two kinds of points to deal with when scoring cornhole throws.
In cornhole, points are totaled at the end of each round. Once all eight bags have been tossed, score up the total bags for each team. The team that has the most points for the round will subtract their opponent’s points from their own to get their total score for the round.
Let’s look at an example:
Team A lands two woodies and one cornhole
Team B lands one woody and two cornholes
Team A scored 5 points, while Team B scored 7. Team B’s score for the round is 2, because 7-5=2. Team A receives no points because, I repeat, only one team can score per round.
This type of scoring is good for the game because it adds some defensive strategy and extends how long a game might last.
