Play Cornhole In The Dark With Lumipic Board Overlays

Posted by Dave On January - 26 - 2008

You love to play Cornhole while tailgating. The only downside to Cornhole is that playing at night is a bit difficult for obvious reasons. What if there was a way to play Cornhole after the sun went down? Now you can. A new company called Lumipic has created illuminated overlays that fit on your existing Cornhole boards. These lighted board overlays come in a number of colors including red, blue, yellow, orange, green and pink. These overlays use Electroluminescent technology, otherwise known as EL, to generate the light and in essence makes your Cornhole set “glow”. The science of it all is a bit over our heads but the bottom line is you can now play Cornhole in the dark while you are waiting for the parking lot to empty out. How cool is that?

The guys over at Lumipic put together a short video showcasing their illuminated Cornhole overlay and put it up on YouTube.

The Lumipic Cornhole board overlays cost $149.99 and are available HERE. If you don’t already have a Cornhole set, we recommend getting your own from Cornhole.com.

    Wow ..this is awesome. I’m going to get mine right away.

    They actually don’t work all that well. It’s hard to see the front portion of the hole when you are standing on the other side. Plus, you kind of need to light the entire area…..a floodlight works much better.

    Actually these do work and look good. I purchased a set a while back. they are not like the cheap Bag-o-lantern lights. the lights actually sit on top of the board so the light is easy to see. you are right about one thing, you do need the whole board to light. But Lumipic does offer the only lighted bags I have ever seen on the planet!! You can see them in the video. They work pretty well with the boards. Flood lights work great, but people love the look and play of the lights. They turn major heads! lol I understand where you are coming from though Dave.

    In response to Cornlovin, I take offense to calling the Bag-O-Lantern cheap. The lights are well made attach easily to any board, and they don’t cost an arm and a leg and come in about five different colors as well. Have you ever actully used the bag-0-lantern boards?

    I saw the lights shown at a cornhole tournament in cumberland, KY. Talk about a great idea. I loved them. My boyfriend bought me a pink set! yes they have pink! ha ha. I have never tried the bag-o-lantern kind. So i cant say anything positive or negative. I just know I love mine. :)
