    DSU BBQ Cornhole Rules

    Board Set-up
    Boards will be twenty-two (22) feet apart. 

    Rosters
    Teams must have at least two (2) players.

    Start of the Match
    Rock, Paper, Scissors will determine which team throws first. The winner decides which team throws first.

    Throwing Position
    Players may throw from either side of the board or behind the board but must remain behind the front edge of the board when throwing the bag. If a player's foot crosses the front of the board when throwing, the throw will be called a foul, no points will be awarded for that throw, and the thrown bag will be removed if it landed on the board or in the cornhole.  

    Scoring
    A bag that hits and remains on the board after all eight bags have been thrown will count as one (1) point. A bag that goes through the cornhole will count as three (3) points.  Bags that hit the floor or ceiling and land on the board will be removed and no points will be awarded. Bags that are partially on the board and touching the floor will be removed and no points will be awarded. Bags hanging off the board, but not touching the ground, will remain on the board.

    Differential scoring will be used. Example: If Team A scores five points and Team B scores three points during a throwing rotation, Team A will be awarded two points.

    Players may attempt to knock the bags of the other team off the board. All points will be counted after both players complete their turns, throwing four (4) bags each. 

    The first team to reach twenty-one (21) points wins the game. The winning team has to lead by two (2) or more points to win a game.

    Hanging Bags
    Bags hanging off the board, but not touching the ground, will remain on the board.

    Foot Foul
    If a player's foot crosses the front of the board when throwing, the throw will be called a foul, no points will be awarded for that throw, and the thrown bag will be removed if it landed on the board or in the cornhole.

    Playoffs
    All teams will make the playoff bracket, double-elimination format.  

    Final Match Length
    The Final Match is a best of three game series. The first team to win two games wins the match.
