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.

Board Game Brunch: Floriferous and Sweet

April showers brought May flowers to us. Enjoy a flowery game of Floriferous and some sweet cupcakes decorated like flowers.

The Game…Floriferous

Floriferous by Pencil First Games has you walking through your garden, collecting flowers for your arrangements. The game says it is a relaxing game, and it does feel like a nice relaxing set collection game.

Even is another player takes a card you want, there are still at least 2 other good options to choose from. Our game was close, with scores of 25 (Consey) to 31 (Suzanne). I envision Floriferous being pulled out as a nice filler game on game days or when we are playing with less competitive gamers.

The Food…Cupcake Flowers

Brunch consisted of delicious coffee and cupcakes. Fun, sugary, giant cupcakes decorated like flowers. Nice and relaxing brunch.

And Beyond…

Board Game Brunch: Sharing Donuts with Iron Man

What better way to spend Sunday morning than with sharing a Randy’s donut and coffee with Iron Man? No Randy’s Donuts here in Madison, but we enjoyed some delicious donuts from Greenbush Bakery. After fueling up, we went and had Iron Man and Hulk battle Ultron in Marvel Champions.

The Game…Marvel Champions

Marvel Champions, by Fantasy Flight Games, is a cooperative card game where each player is a Marvel superhero, working to defeat a villain. This is a great game where you are immersed in the role you choose and each player deck is built to maximize the hero’s strengths. I played as Hulk and had fun smashing the villain each round. Consey played as Iron Man and spent the early part of the game building his tech up.

Our game seemed to be going pretty well and we felt as if we were gaining ground, until Hulk died. Once that happened, it was up to Iron Man to finish off Ultron. Unfortunately, the suit hadn’t been fully built up before Hulk died, which gave him an uphill battle. He fought valiantly, but ultimately Ultron got away.

The Food…Donuts and Coffee

Brunch consisted of delicious coffee and donuts. The best donut place around here is Greenbush Bakery. We picked up some great donuts and enjoyed our Iron Man inspired breakfast.

And Beyond…
