    Any fellow CFer's play Bags??

    I am partaking in my first Bag League at Trophies.

    I am starting to get nervous about all of the little things. I have been playing for a while now, but worried about other teams and rules that are enforced. I would appreciate any info others have..

    Any advice from people that participated in the past would be appreciated.

    And for those of you who reccomend skipping it I alread spent my entry fee on it. So any help is great.

    Re: Any fellow CFer's play Cornhole??

    Rule #1: It's called "bags," not "cornhole."

    ...at least where I'm from. It's possible that it's different where you're at.

    When I opened this thread out of morbid curiosity, I expected an entirely different topic.

    I agree. I hate the name "cornhole." That sounds like something that happens to you in prison.

    I've played in a tournament before and the rules were basically the same as we played when tailgating. Just ask questions if you're not sure.

    Re: Any fellow CFer's play Cornhole??

    It's a staple at our tailgates, and pretty much any summer party any of my friends throw.

    The main rule we enforce, is just making sure you're feet are behind the front of the target when you throw. Sort of like the elbow rule in beer pong.

    Other than that, there really isn't much else to it.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Just to warn you. The Bag Leagues can get pretty intense. I have never done it before but have friends that have.

    Re: Any fellow CFer's play Cornhole??

    Generally bags has a pretty standard set of rules, its not like beer pong where everyone has different rules. There really isnt much you can do, i would expect to see some talented people lol my advice ask them to go out for drinks before hand haha
