  1. Game Rules:


A Game:

A “Game” is made up of frames wherein each team rotates tossing their team’s 4 bags until all bags (8 total) have been tossed towards the opposite board.  At the conclusion of each frame, the score is calculated and added to the team’s net total. A winner is determined when a team reaches or surpasses 21 at the conclusion of a frame.  Number of frames played varies per Game.



Each court consists of 2 boards spaced 27 feet apart front-to-front and two sets of 4 bags.  Boards will be measured by Beacon Tap before scheduled Game time. All boards and bags are provided by Beacon Tap.



The object is to be the first Team to reach or surpass 21 points. Points are scored by landing a tossed bag on the board (1 point) and by having a tossed bag drop into the hole (3 points). Once all eight bags have been tossed, players calculate the points scored per Team.  The Team with the higher number of points is award the point difference. Example: “Team A” scores 8 points in frame 1, and “Team B” scores 2 points in frame 1.  “Team B”‘s 2 points are subtracted from “Team A”‘s 8 points awarding 6 points to “Team A”‘s net total.


Scoring Discrepancies:

All scoring discrepancies need to be taken to the Sponsor representative immediately. Sponsor representative will make the final ruling on all discrepancies in his/her sole discretion.  Please remember, we are out here to have fun!  


Beginning a Game:

Each Team will select one person to be that Team’s captain (“Captain”). The Captains begin each Game with a coin flip. The winner determines the end from which play will begin and gets the first throw.



After the first frame (See Beginning of Game), the team that scores the most points per frame tosses first in the next frame.  If no points are scored, the last team to score points in a frame tosses first.


Knocking Opponents Bags Off Boards:

It is fair game.


Violations Resulting in Bag Being Removed from Board:

Bags may be removed from board if the player crosses the foul line before releasing the bag, the bag hits the ground and bounces onto the board, or the bag strikes an object such as a tree limb, indoor ceiling, person, etc.



The first Team to reach a minimum of 21 points at the end of a frame wins the Game, and that Team moves on to the next applicable Round.


Playing Court:

Players may stand anywhere to the left or right of the board but must stay on that side for the entire Game.  Court area is anywhere behind the front of the board.  Teammates stand at opposite boards but must play on the same side.


Foul Line:

The foul line is located at the front of the board. All players must toss from behind the foul line. If a player crosses the foul line on his or her toss, that toss does not count, and they cannot toss that bag again.


Player Requirements and Substitutions:

A maximum of 2 players per Team must be present to play in each Round. If a player arrives late, they cannot substitute in the middle of a Game.



A team will forfeit their Game if at least one player does not show up within 10 minutes of their scheduled playing time, awarding the opposing Team the win.



A “no-show” (have not arrived in 10 minutes) will be recorded as a forfeit and that Team will then be be disqualified.
