Game Play

  • Both contestants pitch from the same side of the Teeter Toss platform.
  • Board starts in level position.
  • Each team plays with 4 bags
  • Opponents alternate tosses until all 8 bags are thrown
  • Opponents must wait till board comes to a rest before tossing another bag.
  • The round is then scored (See Scoring below)
  • The last team to score on previous round tosses first
  • Toss again if any interference occurs
  • Opponents may call Foot Foul and the call must be honored
  • The losing team has choice of sides for next game
  • Tip: When the Teeter Toss board is tilted away from you, use toss your bag with a little more arch to bring the board back down.

Teeter Toss etiquette requires respect for your opponent. While an opponent is tossing refrain from talking and step back out of his/her view. Only one person or the referee (tournament play) should retrieve bags when the round is completed.


  • Winner is first team to score 21 points
    • Optional:  If team goes over 21, they revert back to 15.  Play is dead for all players and opposing team starts the next round.
  • 3 points for each bag in the hole.
  • 1 point for each bag on the board
  • Score is the difference in the team totals
    • For example: After 1 round of 8 bags played.
      • #1 team with 1 bag in the hole = 3 points
      • #2 team with 2 bags on the board = 2 points
      • Score for the 1st round for #1 team = 1 point
  • Bags pushed in by an opponent’s toss = 3 points
  • The game is over if the score reaches 11 to Zero (SKUNK)
  • If an opponent scores all 4 bags in any combination of holes, the game is over and they win.  If both players do it at the same time, it's a push.
  • If a bag ever touches the ground or is tossed out of turn, it doesn’t count.

Follow these steps to easily calculate the score:

  1. Take away or remove “offsetting or canceling” bags from the board. The net “board” bag or bags are positioned at the bottom of the board.
  2. Retrieve the hole bags, and discard offsetting/canceling bags to the side. The 3 point bag or bags, are positioned over the hole.
  3. The team net round score is calculated by subtracting or adding the points from the board bags and the hole bags.
