Gameplay Rules:

  1. Flip a coin or row-scham-bo to see which team throws first.
  2. All teams must throw from behind the front of their board. If you step past the front of the board, the opposing team may call a foot foul and request you to re-throw.
  3. Alternate turns throwing.  Player A throws a bag, then Player B throws a bag, etc.
  4. You get 3 points for putting the bag through the hole and 1 point for any bag on the board, but not in the hole. Note: the bag cannot be touching the ground.
  5. Points are awarded after each team has thrown their 4 bags and the net score is totaled. The number of awarded points is the difference between the scores of the two teams from that round. (e.g. if Team A scores 5 points and Team B scores 3 points, Team A is awarded 2 points).
  6. Continue playing until someone reaches 21 points or when time is up at 15-minutes. (Time will be signaled.)
  7. The team that scores the points in a round throws first the next round. If no points are scored (net zero), then the team previously throwing continues to throw until points are established.
  8. Tally your score and provide to your court monitor. Make sure to note your total score, score differential (e.g. you scored 21 points and your opponent scored 14 points your differential is 7 points) and whether you won/lost.
  9. You will play 3 teams in your group. The best record and/or combination or record and point differential will be used to determine the top team from the group. The top team from each group will make the single elimination bracket.
  10. In the case of any dispute, the event director has the final ruling.

  2. Each team will play every team in their group.
