Scoring

3 Points – A bag that goes through the hole all the way. This is called a Cornhole.

1 Point – A bag that remains on the playing surface or is hanging into the hole but not completely through the hole or a bag that is hanging off the edge of the platform, but does not touch the ground. This is called a Cow Pie.

0 Points – A bag that either hits the ground before coming to rest on the platform or a bag that is on the playing surface but is also touching the ground or a bag that is hanging off the platform and is on or touched a cornhole bag that is on the ground.

Only the Highest Scoring team receives points. The difference of both teams’ scores is the score given to the highest-scoring team. If both teams score the same amount, no team will receive any points. Example – Team “A” has a cornhole. Team “B” has a Cow Pie. Team “A” is the highest-scoring team and receives 2 points (3 minus 1).
