    How to Score Cornhole Points

    There are two kinds of points to deal with when scoring cornhole throws.

    • Woodies are bags that land directly on the cornhole board playing surface. Bags are not allowed to bounce onto the board from the ground or other surface, however for this competition they are allowed to bounce off the ground. Woodies have to have be at least 60% hanging on the board to count
    • Cornholes are bags that fall through the hole in the top of the playing surface, either by sailing in directly, sliding in on the throw or being pushed in by another bag (yours or your opponents!). Cornholes are worth 3 points.

    Cornhole Score Totalling and Point Cancellation

    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.
