Do you enjoy tailgating? Do like winning prizes for participating in tailgate activities?


This tailgate season the Knights on the Mall team will be conducting Corn Hole tournaments for every Football tailgate taking place on campus. We will be handing out prize packs to the winners of each tournament throughout the tailgate season. Below you will find the rules and scoring for Corn Hole tournaments. The Knights on the Mall team will post announcements regarding the location and time at which the tournament will take place. We will also provide you will a sign up on our website where you can be put on the list to play. Spots will fill up fast so please be the first to sign up as there will only be one tournament per tailgate. In any situation that you are unable to attend please email the team at KOTM@ucf.edu so we can remove you from the list. If you are interested in participating and were unable to sign up on the list please check with the tournament coordinator in Tent B at the start of tailgate to see if there are any slots open.



Game Play/Rules



Decide who goes first by playing rock/paper/scissors, then take turns throwing bags with your opponent. You throw one bag, then your opponent, then you, then your opponent, etc. Your feet may not go past the front edge of the board. If your feet past the edge of the board you will lose the remainder of your turn for that round. If a bag thrown hits the ground then lands on the board it will not be counted, if a bag is hanging off the board but it also touching the ground it will not be counted. When all 8 bags have been tossed to the other side, add up the score (see scoring below). If you earned the most points in that single round, your team will throw first in the next round.



Scoring



Scoring is simple. After all bags have been thrown, if a bag remains on the board it will be worth 1 point. A bag that went into the hole of the board will be worth 3 points. Add up how many points you earned and compare them to your opponents. Equal points will cancel each other out so that only one team can score per round. For example, if you score 5 points and your opponent scored 3, you would add 2 points to your overall score and your team will throw first in the next round. If you score 6 points while your opponent also scores 6 points, there will be no points awarded and whoever threw first in the last round will throw first again. A game is won when a team reaches 21 with a lead of 2 or more points. The first team to win 2 games wins the match.
