Full Answer

The pitching box is a 4-foot-by-3-foot rectangle, and the pitcher must remain in the box until his turn is over. If multiple courts are set up, they must be a minimum of 10 feet away from each other, but 12 feet is recommended. The hole in the Cornhole platform must be six inches in diameter and must be centered 9 inches from the top and 12 inches from each side of the Cornhole platform edges. The paint on a Cornhole platform should be a gloss paint to be slippery but not so slippery that the Cornhole bags slide off the platform. The platform may be painted in any color, but white is the recommended color.

Cornhole games are played in innings. A game is over when one team reaches 21 points, but a game may not be stopped in the middle of an inning. The game is scored by cancellation scoring where corn bags in-the-hole and corn bags in-the-count pitched by opponents during an inning or half of an inning in doubles play cancel each other out.
