Cornhole Drinking Games

Cornhole, also known as bean bag toss, is a game in which players take turns throwing cornhole bags from a set distance at a platform with a hole in the far, raised end. Each match is broken up into innings during which players take turns throwing the bags, aiming for the hole. Each bag in the hole scores three points, while a bag on the platform scores one. There are eight bags total and play continues until a player or team reaches 21 points.

While the game may sound completely innocent, you can make it more adult by turning it into a drinking game. There are different versions that can be played depending on the skill level of players and the anticipated level of drunken revelry.

Taking it Slow

For those who are new to playing cornhole, or those who aren’t looking to get completely wasted, it’s best to take things slow. During this version, players split into two teams. The two teams take turns as usual, and every time a bag goes into the hole, the opposing team takes a drink. Since cornhole skills are lacking, a buzz will be acquired gradually.

Getting Down to Business

Maybe you and your friends are feeling a bit competitive and want to make things a little more interesting. Split everyone into two teams and take turns throwing the cornhole bags as usual. After each half-inning, players must take a drink for each point scored against their team (aka Team 1 takes a drink for each point Team 2 makes and vice versa). By the end of the game, one team will be taking at least 21 drinks. And the other team could be drinking almost as many. But remember, these are drinks not shots, so nothing too hardcore yet.

Breaking Out the Hard Stuff

You’ve balked at the suggestions above and need a real game to play. You and your friends can handle your liquor, and you’re ready to bust out some shots. After splitting into two teams, begin play as you normally would. But after every half-inning, clear the board. The two players who just finished pitching get to throw one additional bag each, often referred to as ‘the shot bag’. If it goes in the hole, the opposing team member who will pitch next must take a shot before taking his turn. Continue taking turns as usual, with opposing players taking a shot before their pitch after each hole-in.

Not for the Faint of Heart

Things are getting rather serious and you’re ready to leave the children’s games behind. Test the amount of liquor you and your friends can handle with this extreme version. Since cornhole bags are sold in sets of eight, it’s time to turn them into drinking bags. Mark one bag from each team as Chug, Shot, Drink, and Social. After the half-inning, players must do what the bag says before their next turn if a hole-in is made by the opposing team. This is one way to get really wasted, really fast.

As you can see, there is a version of the cornhole game for everyone, old and young. No matter which style strikes your fancy, have fun and always drink responsibly.
