BeanBag Games Bean Bag Board

( BeanBag, Marble Coin Pebble and Jack, Physical Contest )

This game consists in throwing bean bags through holes in an inclined board. The board should be preferably eighteen inches wide by three feet long. Near the lower end of it should be cut a square hole about the size of the bean bags. Higher up in the board a second hole about three inches larger should be cut. The board should be slanted by resting it against a wall or fence or bracing one end of it in some other way so that it is at an angle of about forty-five degrees.

The players stand at a throwing line from ten to fifteen feet from the board. Each player has five bags–or five may be used for the entire group of players the bags being recovered for each thrower in turn. A bag thrown into the larger hole counts five into the smaller hole ten. The player wins who first scores one hundred.

Where there are a large number of players it is desirable to have more than one board so that the players may be divided into several groups and make the game more rapid.
