Corners Ring Toss Review
Corners will require a bit of uncomplicated assembly out of the box. Thread the pegs through the holes and screw on the wingnuts with the washers. Due to the size and shape of the board, this requires more dexterity than you might assume, so make sure not to lose any pieces by dropping them.
Corners comes with 8 rings, divided evenly between red and blue. The rules are simple, throw your rings and try to get to 21 points exactly. Red pegs are worth 3 points, white is worth 2, and blue, worth 1. Make 3 shots in a row to earn double the points! Watch out, as if you opponent rings a peg that you did prior, your points are negated for that shot! If you score over 21, revert back to your score prior to that turn and try again. There is one other way to win, make a shot in all four corners to instantly grasp victory!
