FORMAT:

Object of the Game:
Score 21 points or more before your opponent

Setup:
Players (2 females and 2 males/team, 1 male and 1 female on each side) can take stance anywhere between the front and back of target, no more than 5 feet away from the side of the target

*A coin flip decides the team who takes the lead toss

Official Scoring:
Games are played to 21 points
Bags tossed or knocked into the target hole are worth 3pts
Bags that land (and remain) on the target board are worth 1 pt
Bags that hit the ground before landing on the board or going in the hole Does Not Count
Bags that land (or end up) on the ground are worth 0 pts
Score is the difference in the team totals. For example: After 1 round or 8 bags played; #1 Team with 1 bag in the hole = 3 points.  #2 Team with 2 bags on board = 2 points. Score 1st round for #1 team = 1 point.
11-0 is ruled as a shutout and the game is over.


RULES:

*Team members= 2 males and 2 females, standing at opposite targets and remaining there for the entire game. One teammate will throw 2 beanbags, and then the other teammate will throw 2 beanbags- the order of tossing the beanbags between teammates does not matter, alternating throws is acceptable. Teams will alternate throws beginning with the team who had the most points in the previous round.

Example: Team A (either player) will throw, then Team B (either player) will throw, then Team A, then Team B….until all bags have been thrown.

Once all bags have been thrown, points will be tallied. Points will cancel out. (Ex. Team A scores 6 points on their throws, Team B scores 3 points with their throws. Team A will be awarded 3 points for the round.)

NO SKUNK RULE. All games will be played to 21, no bust. This means the first team to score 21 points, or more, will advance in the tournament.

The opposite side will then do the same.

  1. The team with the highest score in the previous round throws the lead toss for the round.
  2. Both teams’ alternate tosses until all eight bags have been tossed. (This concludes a round.)
  3. Player’s feet should not project past the front of the target during a toss.
  4. Boards will be placed 27′ from front to front.

After your first two rounds, game times are subjected to change. If not present at the start of your game, your game will be forfeited!
