Blast Off With Artemis Project

I was introduced to Artemis Project by Grand Gamers Guild at Gen Con 2019. It was Saturday of the convention and my wife was taking me from booth to booth checking out those last vendors that had something we really wanted to see. I don’t know where she heard of Artemis Project, but she knew I liked games that used dice as workers in a worker placement role. Walking up to the booth, we spoke with the designer and within moments I was sold. I needed to have a copy of this game!

  • Players: 1-5
  • Playtime (with Setup): we find it around 90-150 minutes
  • Publisher: Grand Gamers Guild
  • Designer: Daryl Chow and Daniel Rocchi

Kickstart Monday: Gaming Tables

Welcome to Kickstart Monday!!!! This is our weekly series featuring 2 or more crowdfunding projects in the tabletop gaming industry. I scour over platforms like KickstarterGamefound, and Indigogo to find projects that interest me. People would ask me what I think is worth backing. Since I was providing these recommendations all ready, what better way to do it than post a weekly blog about projects I am interested in.

Stay informed when new Kickstart Monday projects come out by following us on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter and following the #KickstartMonday hashtag.

This week on Kickstart Monday I wanted to talk about two, game table projects that if you are in the market for this luxury item you should definitely check out.

The Bristol Plus – Gaming And Dining Table

The Bristol Plus Gaming and Dining Table from UK manufacturer Geeknson are bringing even more options to their entry-level table. Geeknson is arguably one of the biggest players and leaders in the luxury game table market. You can see their designs on many YouTube channels including Rodney’s Watch it Played.

The Bristol, while being the most entry-level table Geeknson offers, should not be considered low options. Made from wild oak, you will have options for various table finishes and an array of included accessories as part of your base pledge. This table comes in a number of unique sizes from the size of a coffee table to a large table that can seat 8 players. Pledging is made simple by just selecting the size of the table you want. Shipping and options will be determined when the pledge manager is made available.

If you are looking for a great quality gaming table with a number of flexible options then you should definitely check out this project.

Sunnygeeks 1.5 – Modular Gaming Table

The Sunnygeeks table from Rathskellers is possibly the most flexible gaming table on the market currently. Available in two sizes you have a plethora of options. Available in two sizes, you can have this table fit and work for nearly any gaming and dining area. Rathskellers is another popular UK-based game table manufacturer whose designs can be seen on the ever-popular Dice Tower YouTube channel.

The flexibility of the table comes from the unique wooden drawer (more like boxes), magnetic interchangeability, and lids for the drawers that give you so many options for functionality that you can build and customize your table based on your needs and gaming experience. In addition, table legs can be tapered wooden legs or metal legs.

With so many options, it’s hard to say what’s not to love with this table. If you are in the market for a luxury gaming table this is a great project to consider.

More to Consider

I usually don’t go into an extended ramble on these things, but with two gaming tables featured I thought I should share a few additional thoughts. Both of these tables have been produced by these companies previously. These tables though have only been made available to the public via their Crowdfunding campaigns though. Both companies I would consider leaders in the luxury game table market.

I would also add that I am intrigued by both of these tables, but at this time have not had the opportunity to play at any of the tables made by these companies so can’t judge the quality of their construction practices myself. Luxury gaming tables are exactly that, a luxury item. It’s not a requirement or something that I would tell you that you have to have. It’s something that we enjoy having ourselves (Jasper gaming table currently), but it’s a purchase that you have to consider if it’s right for you, your game space, and your budget.

Did we miss your favorite project?

Thank you for checking out this week’s Kickstart Monday! If you find these interesting or want some attention on a Kickstarter or other crowdfunded projects that you would like to read more about please share your thoughts with us via our social media or at our email.
