New game, Flimsee, may have appeal to tailgaters

Invented by John Mally of Columbus, a new lawn game suitable for tailgating is available now. A press release from Mally states the Ohio-made game Flimsee is played with a plastic cup, a stick and a frisbee. The Flimsee company is conducting a crowdfunding campaign through Indiegogo to produce a supply of game kits in time for football season.

“We sell our game through Who’s Nuts in Tiffin and have some Tiffin graduates and Bowling Green friends who are also heavily involved in promoting the game, Mally said. “Tiffin has been a great fan base for us, with the university and web sales, so we would love for everyone to hear about our thriving Indiegogo campaign.”

The website explains Mally came up with the game after seeing a disc “strike a snow pole and send a cup flying.” Like cornhole, Flimsee employes two-person teams that alternate throwing. The players try to strike the opponents’ pole to launch the cup from the top as the opposing team tries to catch the airborne cup.

Malley markets the game in a kit that runs about $100. Players can adjust the rules for the venue and the number of people participating.
