I love cornhole, it’s one of my favorite games to play at the tailgate. My biggest beef with most cornhole boards is how big and bulky they are. Throwing a pair of regulation sized boards in your trunk may not be feasible, or you may not have room for anything else. What if I told you that you that there is a tailgating chair that converts into a cornhole board? Chair and cornhole board in one? That’s killing two birds with one stone (no animals were harmed in the making of this review) and let me introduce you to the Kamp Rite Sac-It-Up chair.
The Sac-It-Up chair is a tailgating chair that can convert into a cornhole board. The Sac-It-Up chair is all about portability. There are backpack straps, so you can toss it on your back and go with both your chair and your entertainment, all in one. Once you get to where you’re going, slide the back pack straps off and the chair sets up easily.
Let’s talk about the chair, it’s more of a beach style chair that rides low to the ground, but is pretty comfy as you can adjust the backrest to the perfect angle. There are small pouches on both the arm and the base of the chair to stash your phone, koozies, drink, and other goodies. There is also a headrest that adds another touch of comfort to this chair.
You may have been wondering what that hole was for in the top of the chair? That is the ‘cornhole’ to toss the bags in. The game comes with 6 total bags (I think it should come with 8 #Feedback) and there is a pouch on the back of the chair that is zippered that stores the cornhole bags. When you’re ready to get your game on, you pull up on the armrests and push back, then the chair folds flat. You’re then ready for an all new type of cornhole.
If you’re like me you’re probably wondering the bags play compared to the standard wooden boards. It’s totally different! The bags hit the cloth like material and there is more of a bounce, than a slide with these. The concept is the same, but you will have to tweek your game from the classic version to dominate your opponents.
PROS: chair and cornhole board all in one with backpack straps, oh and its real fun too.
CONS: need 8 total bags
Overall, this is an addictive new way to play cornhole that you may just set up in your house to toss a game, I did. If space is a concern then, the Sac-It-Up is for you. You now get a chair and a game all in one. That is what I call a Win Win!
