BASIC GAME PLAY

  • The game is played with 2 teams, comprised of 2 people per team.
  • The boards will be placed 27 feet apart (front to front).
  • Team partners will face each other from opposite boards.
  • Play starts on either board with all eight bags.
  • Each team plays with a set of 4 bags and each team has their own color bag.
  • No switching of bags during the game unless a bag is damaged. Must be replaced with an identical bag and approved by Tournament Monitor.
  • Opponents will alternate tosses until all 8 bags are played.
  • The round is then scored (see scoring below).
  • Repeat the play from the other end and the highest scoring team from the previous throw has honors.

SCORING

  • The first team to get 21 points wins! No bust.
  • A team earns 1 point for each bag on the board. Bags cannot hit the ground and then bounce on the board, nor can they be touching the ground. It is appropriate to remove all bags from the board that hit the ground first before play is continued.
  • A team earns 3 points for each bag that goes into the hole. They must go completely in the hole. Bags that are hanging in the hole only count for 1 point. If your opponent knocks your bag into the hole you still get the 3 points.
  • The game is based off cancellation scoring. For example: After 1 round or 8 bags played; Team #1 has thrown 1 bag into the hole and three off the board, their total then is 3 points. Team #2 has thrown 1 bag on the board and three off the board, their total is then 1 point. You subtract Team #2’s score from Team #1’s score and the total score for the round is Team #1 earns 2 points.

SELECTION OF PLAYERS & STANCE

  • Players can use any method to determine sides (i.e. coin flip, rock-paper-scissors) or a toss closest to the hole (a coin flip is used in tournament play). You should also use the same method to see which team goes first.
  • Where you stand is a personal preference as long as you don’t cross the foul line that is even with the front of the board.
  • Certified Officials will keep score for each game and report the score to the tournament monitor after the game is over.
  • Players may call upon the Certified Official between frames if there is any discrepancy about the correct score.
