What is Flimsee?
Flimsee is the ultimate lawn game for fun and friendly competition. It consists of three simple elements: a cup, a stick, and a frisbee.
Creator John Mally first conceived the idea back in 2008, when he saw a disc strike a snow pole and send a cup flying during a casual game of catch. Five years and multiple prototypes later, the Flimsee Set, has the set the standards for the game, becoming a cult favorite among a loyal community of lawn gamers, tailgaters, and disc enthusiasts who continually raise the level of competitiveness.
Flimsee, a Columbus Ohio startup, partnered with Trident Design, an invention incubator to launch a crowdfunding campaign through Indiegogo which is now Live. Their goal is to get as many of the newly designed compact sets in the hands of as many fun people as possible in preparation for football season. To be successful in manufacturing you have to get your quantities up and have capital for inventory, investment, and marketing, this campaign is helping them do just that. It’s a Cornhole alternative that players fall in love and can’t help but want more of once they’ve played. Flimsee is a game that measures disc throwing accuracy as well reflexes, with non-stop action and party rule adjustments. Whether playing offense or defense, casual or competitive, it’s fun to scramble after cups flung from sticks struck by the discs. Flimsee is ideal for cookouts, tailgating, beaches, parks, and wherever else people are gathering.
Join Flimsee in their crowdfunding efforts to create a more compact, Made in America, safe and durable, collapsable version of the game.
