Cornhole Lantern

Posted by Dave On May - 8 - 2012

No matter what part of the country you come from, cornhole is by far and away the most popular and well recognized tailgating game out there in the parking lots. You would be hard pressed to find any tailgater worth their weight in BBQ sauce that doesn’t enjoy a good game of cornhole. The only problem is that while tailgating, you have to suspend the game due to darkness.

We recently discovered Cornhole Lantern, formerly called Bag-O-Lantern, and wanted to test it out to see if cut the mustard.

As you can see in the above photos, the Cornhole Lantern is made up of a collection of eight high brightness colored LED lights that are arranged in a circle pattern that encompasses the hole. The LED’s are encased in a high impact, clear acrylic with a gloss white back reflective surface to help distribute the light evenly up towards the top of the board.

Cornhole Lanterns can be easily attached to any regulation cornhole board by simply fastening it to the underside of the hole using the included wood screws. Or you can secure the lights with double sided tape for plastic boards. The LED’s have an estimated life of 100,000 hours and are operated by a 9V battery (not included). A new 9V battery will supply approximately eight hours of play time using a Cornhole Lantern. The battery compartment has an on/off switch so you can turn it off when not in use.

The photos we shot of the sample we received show you the installation process and the finished product but to truly get an idea of the brightness of these Cornhole Lanterns, we shot a quick video of them in use.

Regarding the Cornhole Lantern, we really liked the product and found it to be all that it has been cracked up to be. The light was bright and allowed players to easily see their target. Also, installation was very easy and quick. All you need is a phillips head screwdriver and you can have both Cornhole Lanterns installed in about five minutes.

Before receiving the sample Cornhole Lantern I was concerned that the light would somehow reduce the size and diameter of the 6″ hole on regulation cornhole boards. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the Cornhole Lantern does not reduce the size of the hole so you cornhole purists out there can rest assured you do not need to adjust your playing style if you are going to use these. Another benefit is that because the Cornhole Lantern attaches to the underside of the board, around the hole, using this product will not alter your game play. The surfaces of your boards remain unchanged so if you are more of a “slider”, you don’t have to worry about a foreign object affecting the way your bags slide on the cornhole boards.

After thoroughly testing and reviewing the Cornhole Lantern we here at Tailgating Ideas have given them the “Tailgate Approved” stamp.

The Cornhole Lantern comes as a set of two circular lights each with a battery compartment. Five colors are available: white, blue, green, red, and amber.

We thought so highly of the Cornhole Lantern that we have decided to add them to our online tailgating gear store for $34.99 plus $5 shipping. To buy your own set of Cornhole Lanterns, click HERE.
