From quirky and wacky twists to innovative, more challenging takes, we’ve got you covered with this list of thrilling cornhole variations that are sure to keep you and your crew entertained for hours on end, with the game that you love!

Standard Cornhole

The standard game is the most basic and commonly played version out there. Simply put, you place the boards 27 feet apart and each player or team takes turns throwing their four bags with the objective to get them in the hole on the board. You earn points for each bag that goes into the hole or remains on the board at the end of each inning and the first player or team to get to twenty-one wins the game.

Mini Cornhole

Mini cornhole is a pint-sized version of the classic game that packs just as much excitement and entertainment, in a slightly smaller package. The compact boards are usually about half the size of standard cornhole boards, so you can play indoors and easily take them along on the go to liven up any event or gathering. The rules stay the same as standard cornhole, although you might need to get a little more creative with your shots since the boards are usually set up closer together.

Horse

If you have ever played horse in basketball, then you will be familiar with this fun cornhole variation as well. The first player chooses their spot and calls their shot. If that player makes it into the hole, then the following player or players try to make it into the hole from the same spot and in the same way. You can score this variation in one of two ways. Players can receive the letters H O R S E for each shot they miss, until there is only one player left standing, or you can play to a predetermined point total and award points if you successfully complete your toss and your opponent does not. The choice is up to you, but either way, this version of cornhole adds a fun twist to turning up the competition.

Around The World Cornhole

This version of cornhole will spice up your regular game by asking you to “go around the world”. In this variation, players or teams will take turns tossing their bags with the aim of getting them to land on all four corners of the board or “world”. If you or your team are the first to conquer all four corners, you will be crowned the ultimate champion! If you want to take home the title, you will need to focus on accuracy and precision, because this game challenges you to hit your mark every time to win. Rally your friends and get ready for a thrilling ride as you go “Around the World” in the most epic cornhole battle ever!

Reverse Cornhole

This version of cornhole is perfect for players who want a bit more of a challenge. Here, points are only awarded for bags that DON’T make it through the hole, which is where it gets the name reverse cornhole. The goal is to toss as many bags onto the board as you can without them falling off, going in, or being pushed off the board by your rivals. Every bag that stays on the board by the end of the inning earns you or your team a precious point, and the first player or team to reach twenty-one points will claim the ultimate victory!

Three-Hole and Four-Hole Cornhole

This variation of cornhole is a game-changer like nothing you’ve seen before because it actually uses completely different boards with the same number of holes as the name suggests. You’ll take turns pitching your bags and trying to score big by getting them into any of the holes, but here is the twist: only bags that make it into the holes will be awarded points. Bags that land on the board (or anywhere else) don’t count, which means there’s no room for mediocrity in this game, it’s all about precision and accuracy. The first team or player to reach twenty-one points gets crowned the victor in your epic showdown, so what are you waiting for? Grab your bags and get ready to take on the ultimate challenge of Three-hole and Four-hole Cornhole!

Blindfold Cornhole

This version of cornhole is not for the faint of heart. It might just be the most difficult variation yet, because, yes, as the name suggests this game requires each player to wear a blindfold while throwing their beanbags. This adds a challenging wrinkle, that new players tend to have a hard time with, but cornhole veterans can use their muscle memory and successfully score some points. Give it a try and see if you are up for the test.

No matter what version of cornhole you play, you are practically guaranteed to have an awesome time laughing and making memories with the ones you love the most.
