Due to the confusing scoring system and rules of the popular lawn game cornhole, many novice and avid players have difficulty accurately keeping score on a consistent basis. To alleviate this problem, the Automated Cornhole Score Keeping System implements technology that eliminates the need to keep score manually in a game of cornhole. Two cornhole boards, configured with the score keeping system, are able to accurately keep score for both teams throughout the entirety of the game. Each score keeping system communicates through BLE, giving players access to the score of their game from an external scoreboard. Both boards are able to precisely detect if a bag lands on the board, goes through the hole on the board, or completely misses the board. After each successive round, an “end round” button is pressed by the user and the system updates each team's score (if applicable) based on the official cornhole scoring and rules system. After the completion of a game, both boards reset each score back to zero. With the Automated Cornhole Score Keeping System, games run more smoothly and eliminate the chance of any scorekeeping errors.
