Players may throw from anywhere behind the foul line.
The score is taken after each round.
The first player/team to reach 21 points wins.

bag that lands on the box=1
bag that is hanging into the hole=1
bag that is hanging off the edge of the box but not touching the ground=1
bag that is on the box, but also touching the ground=0

SCORING EXAMPLE-1st throw: Team A throws and it lands on the ramp, team B throws and it goes through the hole. 2nd throw: A goes through hole, B lands on ramp. 3rd throw: A lands on ramp knocking team B’s 2nd throw into hole, B lands on the ground.4th throw: A lands on ramp, B lands on ramp knocking A’s 1st throw onto ground.
