Scoring: Race to 21
3 points for a beanbag in the hole
1 point for a beanbag on the board (no points if a beanbag is touching the ground)
After the 8 beanbags have been thrown, you need to count the points

A team is not penalized for achieving a score over 21 points, the game is finished and that player or team wins the game. ( Race to 21)
If a player pitches in an incorrect sequence, the bag that is incorrectly pitched is forfeited. Then, to reestablish the correct sequence of pitching, the opposing player will pitch two consecutive bags. b. If a player pitches in an incorrect sequence and it is not called/identified immediately, then the round finishes out as it started (which is the incorrect sequence).
If that particular round finishes in a wash/push, then next round is then played in the CORRECT sequence as it was supposed to be played previously. If that round finishes with one team scoring points, that team will start the next round.
If one partner of a doubles team cannot finish the match for any reason that game will be forfeited by the team that could not finish by a score of 21-0.
