Previously, we tell you to be comfortable and to aim for the first six inches of the board instead of the hole to get better at cornhole. Are there any more tips we have? Well, of course. Here we will you more tips so you can play better. Let’s start!

Relax

To get better at this game, you should not only comfortable but also relax. Just like any sport, once you have played long enough, the main obstacle to winning will be all in your head. About 90% of losses in cornhole is caused by “mental breakdown.” Once you think too much about the game, you will tend to tighten up. Instead of tightening up and overthinking things, you should try to relax. Breathe. Have some fun. Relax.

Spin it

If you want the bag to go where you want it to go, you will need a flat, spinning toss. However, this is the step that will take the longest to master. How to do it? Just imagine that you are playing Frisbee with your friends. Throw it like you throw a Frisbee, with a nice, flat throw with good spin. That is how you should throw your bag.

Master the four shots

There are four shots that you should master: the slider, push, blocker and air mail. The slider shot is when you land the bag on the front of the board (about six inches from the hole) and sliding it in. The push is when you nudge your bag into the hole or when you knock a blocker out of the way. The blocker is when you drop the near the hole in order to prevent your opponent from using the slider. The air mail is when you send the back right into the hole.

Practice

Last but not least, practice. Just like all things, the more you practice, the better you at it. So, keep practicing and remember to relax, try the spin throw and master the shots. Good luck!
