Way to go, West Branch Cornhole!

By Ben Budhu | Mar 3, 2020

The most gratifying thing about running Scoreholio is hearing how we help make life easier for those who use cornhole to build community and camaraderie with leagues and weekly blind draws. I thought this note from Jim Psik who runs West Branch Cornhole in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, was not only super nice but does a great job of explaining the value of Scoreholio in the words of a user.

Gather Your Squad and Throw Down with Squadholio

By Greg Barr | Feb 5, 2020

Cornhole and other bar sports are almost always played between two individuals or 2-person teams, but Scoreholio now gives tournament directors and league administrators the ability to combine people and teams into “squads” that take each other on in a battle for supremacy. It’s a fun format that can turn individually-oriented games into collective competitions that generate great camaraderie and community, and we’re calling it “Squadholio.”

Happy Birthday, Switcholio!

By Greg Barr | Jan 18, 2020

Last night I ran my 54th Switcholio tournament at Hapa’s Brewing Company in San Jose as the weekly blind draw of Silicon Valley Cornhole, a club I founded 2 years ago. That represents a full year of Switcholio, because on Wednesday January 16, 2019 I ran the first Switcholio tournament…in the world…EVER! The anniversary inspired me to look back at the inception of the idea and the amazing way it’s grown and impacted how cornhole is played across the country.

How to Use SPR+ to Figure out SPR Impact

By Ben Budhu | Dec 17, 2019

Before every game, Scoreholio predicts what will happen based on both players’ or teams’ Scoreholio Player Ratings. If that does happen, both teams move up or down very little. If something unexpected happens like a lower rated upsetting somebody, or a team that’s supposed to squeak blowing somebody out, you’ll see much bigger swings in SPR. SPR+ allows all of you to dig into the stats for every game you play on the system. Remember to click on the Profile Settings on the top right, there you can edit your name or your club/crew you play for. We have lots more awesome features coming soon, so stay tuned.

By Greg Barr | Dec 3, 2019

There’s no other system that does a better job of quantifying cornhole players’ skill level and ranking them than the SPR system we’ve been beta testing for a few months…bar none! But if you know us, you know that’s not good enough. We’ve tweaked and tuned the algorithm behind SPR, addressed lots of concerns that came up, listened to what YOU wanted out of an upgraded player experience, ad have come up with something we really think you’re going to like.

Helping Santa Clarita Heal Through Cornhole

By Ben Budhu | Nov 18, 2019

Last week my home town of Santa Clarita experienced a school shooting that took two young lives, seriously injured three more, and deeply affected every one of us who live here and love this town. I now know first-hand the trauma of needing to get your family together, safe, while begrudgingly respecting the need to lock schools down, shelter in place and let law enforcement do their job, and I wouldn’t wish that experience and helpless feeling on anybody.
I also, through cornhole, now know the gratifying feeling of helping the community you love come together to heal and support the victims of something like this.
