To play cornhole you'll need 8 bags, 2 boards and a place to set them up as a court.

Boards

Regulation cornhole boards are 24" wide by 48" wide with a 6" hole centered 9" from the back edge of the board. The front edge should be 3" above the ground, and the back edge should be 12" above the ground. The best boards have decks that are 3/4" thick, or 5/8" with a brace.

Cornhole Bags

Cornhole bags are 6" by 6" and weigh one pound. They can be made from a wide variety of fabric, and filled with corn or acrylic pellets. Many "backyard players" are used to corn-filled canvas bags, but competitive cornhole is played with pellet-filled bags that feature one sticky side and one slicker side. Here's a bunch of bags we recommend.

Court Layout

The boards are placed with the front edges 27 feet apart. Each player or team plays from one of two "lane" on oppsite sides of the court, and must throw the bag from behind the front edge of the board, keeping at least one foot within 3 feet of the edge of the board.

So you've got bags in hand and boards set up -- lets learn how to play cornhole!
