Purchase the Bean Bag Throw Game - Assorted Sport Themes Available

Size and Number of Teams

  • According to the official rules of the National Bean Baggers Association, there should be no more than two teams for a bean-bag toss. Each team should consist of one to two players.
  • However, the World Bean Bag Association allows each team to have up to four players.

Distance Between Boxes

  • The World Bean Bag Association says that the two boxes or boards into which the bags will be tossed should be 30 feet apart from the center of one board's hole to the center of the other board's hole.

Number of Bean Bags

  • Each team gets three to four bean bags.

Rules of Throw

  • The front of the boxes or boards serves as the foul line. All bags are thrown from behind the foul line.
  • Each player alternates throwing the bags with the other players.

Tallying Points

  • 1 Point - A Bag on the Board
  • 3 Points - A Bag in the Hole
  • Points cannot be made by a bag bouncing from the ground onto the board.
  • To Tally a Round - Take the team with the highest points in one round and subtract the other team's lower points.
    • Example:
      • Team A has two bags on the board and one bag in the hole for a total of five points.
      • Team B has one bag on the board and one bag in the hole for a total of four points.
      • The lowest score (Team B's) is subtracted from the highest score (Team A's).
      • Team A receives one point total for the round. (5-4=1)
  • Only one team can score per round.
  • The goal of each team is to score at least 21 points.

Points Objective

  • The goal of each team is to score at least 21 points.
  • The winning team must be victorious by two points. So, if the score is 21-20, the game must continue until one of the teams pulls ahead of the other team by two points.
  • A variation on the game prevents teams from going over21. Depending on which variation is played, the team that goes over 21 points will either drop to 16 points or lose all its earned points for the game.
  • A white wash is when a team scores 11-0. A white wash cannot occur in the first half of the first round of play.
  • The game usually begins with a coin flip.
