Strategies For Cornhole

There’s nothing like going outside to enjoy the warmth of the sun and a few games with your family or friends. Cornhole is a fun game that you can play in teams or against one other person. You can often see cornhole tournaments at special events, like festivals, or as a stand-alone tournament to raise money for a worthy cause. If you follow a few tips, then you can enhance your skills while playing an official cornhole game at any time.

Don’t keep your bean bag bunched in your hand. Hold it flat on your palm when you’re throwing so that it doesn’t bunch up when it lands on the board. This will also help to ensure that it lands flat on the board and slides instead of landing in one place. It’s not a ball that you’re throwing on the board. You’re throwing a bag that you want to get to a hole. Try to aim the bag for the center of the board. If the board is designed right, then the hole will be in the center instead of off to one side. Try not to let the designs on the board take away your attention. Ignore them, and aim for the hole in the center.

The bags that you use in the game should be of the best quality. You want to use bags that are double-sided. One side is made of suede to allow for better sticking to the board while the other side is made of canvas, which allows for better sliding on the board. It might not sound like it would make a difference, but the clothing you wear can affect your throw. If you wear clothing that is too baggy, then the extra material can get in the way of throwing. Avoid wearing pants or shorts that have pockets on them because the bag could get caught in them while you’re bringing your hand back to throw the bag. When you’re throwing, either stand still and throw or move one leg forward. Don’t commit to a lot of movement as this can be distracting to other people who are playing, and it’s really not necessary. A lot of movement can also get you off-center, which can make the bag end up on the side of the board.
