Ghost Cornhole Tournaments

By now you should be familiar with the term “Playing the Ghost”. We recently featured an article titled “Playing The Ghost is Great Practice“, click to read all about it, it explains how to play the ghost and how it can be the best form of practice available to really take your game to the next level.

Or if you want to see an example of someone playing against the ghost, scroll to the bottom of this page where you can watch the creator of Ghost Cornhole, Bobby Fink, take on and beat Ghost 7.

As a Cornhole Addict, you have most likely been to many tournaments in your area and probably have driven 2 or 3 hours just to play. And I would bet that sometimes you are even willing to make a longer trek just to meet and play against some new competition.

Well, now there’s a different way. Ghost Cornhole brings you Facebook Live Virtual Tournaments. Compete against people all over the US right from your own backyard! Join us in the one and only FB Live cornhole tournament experience. There are even daily Throwin Go tournaments!

Basic Game Play of Ghost Cornhole

Here is the basic game play of how Ghost Cornhole Tournaments work.
Your playing a Ghost that scores a predetermined number every round. Example: If you are playing Ghost 7 and you throw a total of 10 points for that round, you would score 3. If you throw a total of 4 points then the Ghost would score 3 that round. First to 21 wins.

Something to think about….Let’s say in the first round you draw against an ACL Pro. You are probably thinking you don’t have a chance and maybe if you were actually playing them 1 on 1 you wouldn’t. But the great part of these tournaments, is that you actually do have a chance, a good one!! Because all you need to do and worry about is your game! Just beat YOUR ghost by a bigger margin that them and you win the round.

Tournament Play of Ghost Cornhole

The possibilities are endless with the variety of different ways we can play. We will change it up from time to time but here are the standard tournament game play rules.

  • A live drawing is done to figure out who you will be matched against in the first round.
  • Entrants will play their own game against the Ghost. If both beat the Ghost, we will use the biggest score differential to determine winner for the match. (e.g., you win 21-2 (19 point diff) and I win 21-10 (11 point diff). (You win match)
  • Live drawing before every round to determine match up, each round will last 2 days.
  • Odd number of players will result in one bye.
  • All 21-0 ties, both players advance!
  • All other ties are broken by both players playing the next level Ghost before the next round.

Daily Throwin Go Tournaments – Game Play

  • You will play against 3 levels of the Ghost in one video. (Example you have chosen to play a $1 Throwin Go 345. You would play ghost 3, ghost 4, and ghost 5)
  • Total points against you is your final score. (the Ghosts score is the points you care about in this tournament)
  • 8 players per Throwin Go, lowest total wins.
  • There are 3 types (or dollar amounts) which are $1, $3 and $5 and a many different levels such as 345, 567, 678, 777, 890 and even top level 000..Three 10’s
