ScoreMagic – Cornhole


Cornhole Scoring will never be the same because of SCOREMAGIC 

Bag tracking made Easy Peasy.

What can be the most confusing part of scoring in cornhole? The process of figuring out what you scored vs what your opponent scored and then combining those for net scoring. Well we at Scoreholio thought this was something we could help with. And since we never do anything the basic way, we thought that we should add some MAGIC!!

The Idea:

The sport of cornhole has 3 options for scoring:

0 points for a bag off the board

1 point for a bag on the board

3 points for a bag in the hole 

With each player only throwing 4 bags, that gives us a range of points to be scored from 0 -12 per round. 

After looking at the possibilities, a hypothesis began to emerge. Could you calculate what combinations of bags were thrown based off of the round score?

Well you can, and that is where the Magic happens!

The Possibilities:

Round Score Bags IN Bags ON Bags OFF Bags IN Bags ON Bags OFF
0 0 0 0
1 0 1 3
2 0 2 2
3 0 3 1 1 0 3
4 0 4 0 1 1 2
5 1 2 1
6 1 3 0 2 0 2
7 2 1 1
8 2 2 0
9 3 0 1
10 3 1 0
12 4 0 0


As you can see from the table above, you can track what bags were thrown based off the round scores for the following: 0-1-2-5-7-8-9-10-12. 

Note: there is NO way to throw an 11 for the round.

For scores 3-4-6 there are two possibilities for how the bags are tracked. However, you can easily see which combination it was based on how many bags were in the hole. 

The Build:

We had the idea and all the possible outcomes, it was time to start building the Magic. All we needed to know was what each player scored, we built scoremagic with one team on each side of the scoreboard. 


Players can easily pick who played the round, what their round score was, and submit the round. Easy Peasy

Scoremagic is ready to transform the scoring process for the sport of cornhole. Let’s walk through how it works.

ScoreMagic Stats:

Who is ready for stat overload? Since we know what you and your opponent threw for that round, you can dive into the stats. We give you three places to find them:

Key for stat abbreviations:

R – Rounds

B – Bags

PPR – Points Per Round

OPP – Opponents Points Per Round

DPR – Differential Per Round (Your points per round – your opponents points per round)

The above line will be your percentages and the below line is your total. 

#1- Your Player Profile

Go to Player Profile and click on the PROFILE tab on the top middle. Use the toggle switch to go to ScoreMagic Stats


You will need to upgrade to SPR+ to see all your stats. When you upgrade not only will you see your stats, but you will be able to see any other player’s stats as well. 

#2- In Tournament Dashboard


Within any tournament dashboard you can now see every round that was thrown during the tournament. Click on a player name and see their individual matches. 

#3- Club Rankings


On Player Profile in the app, click on Rankings, then Club Rankings. You can see all the players in your club’s Scoremagic Stats from any tournaments ran by your particular club for the past 120 days. 


Change can sometimes have a learning curve. The screens are different but the results over time make the process much easier. Give ScoreMagic a go, your players will adapt to the change and we know they will love to see their stats. It’s MAGIC.
