Kickstart Monday: Carry Your Bags to Rome and More

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 a 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’s projects feature bags for carrying board games, gaming mats, and a territory control board game. Let’s dive into this week’s Kickstart Monday projects.

Bags and Playmats for Board Games

Boardgametables.com is best known for their Jasper Gaming table, but they also produce a number of accessories for the tabletop board gamer. This project will feature new options to their line of bags for transporting board games to game night, conventions, or wherever you need to take them. These bags will feature new colors and are designed to nicely hold 12×12 inch board game boxes. You know, that classic board game box size made famous by games like Ticket to Ride and multiple Fantasy Flight Games titles!

In addition, if you play at say the kitchen table, game store, or other surface and would just like something nicer to pick up game components on then this project has something for you. Neoprene mats come in three sizes and five different colors. With stitched edging, they will hold up. I know we end up having to put up a folding table for our extra table at game nights so having a mat like this is really attractive for us.

If you need something to carry your games to game night or a nice mat to go on your table for the game night then this project has something for you.

Total War: Rome The Board Game

Total War: Rome The Board Game from PSC Games and designed by Simon Hall is based on the highly popular video game of the same name. For up to four players, this game is played over a number of rounds. Like so many games, each round is a collection of phases. You will collect resources, convert those resources into more units and upgrades such as generals and weaponry, and then spread your legions over the lands to try to control as much territory as possible.

I have always enjoyed tactical war games, but at some point there just isn’t a reason to continue playing once someone gains the strong upper hand in resources, units, and board control (Games like Risk). Total War: Rome gets around this by making it a race to 25 VPs. You’ll score points for economic might, expansion, victory in battle, and other things. Race condition endings aren’t for everyone, but in this type of game, I think it’s ideal.

If you like tabletop strategy wargames or love this video game then this game is likely for you.

Jasper Modular Shelves from BoardGameTables.com features a modular, customizable game shelving and storage solution intended to be able to grow as your collection grows.

If you are like most of us, then you are in need of a better way to store your games. These shelves will look great and can be coordinated with your game table color to match exactly if you have their Jasper gaming table too!

Northern Lights Dice from Cerberus Supplies features a beautiful set of polyhedral dice for your role playing or board gaming fun! These dice are hand made dice that try to capture the natural look of the borealis in the northern sky. There are plenty of add-ons, such as a wooden dice box that looks like a treasure chest that you can explore as well.

Playing that Dungeons and Dragons game in the cold north of Icewind Dale? Playing a cool sci fi game and want dice that look like they are from another galaxy?

Getting the Best Out Of Your Jasper Gaming Table

The Jasper Gaming Table from BoardGameTables.com

It was a little over a year ago when my wife and I decided we were going to purchase our first tabletop gaming table. With a market full of options, there were a number of things to consider. Ultimately, we purchased the Jasper Gaming Table from BoardGameTables.com. With over a year of use I feel it’s a good time to give it a review

What You Need to Select that Perfect Board Game Table

Our Jasper Gaming Table from BoardGameTables.com

Picking that perfect board game table is really hard to do. About a year ago my wife and I found ourselves doing just that. We had committed to buying our first dedicated table for gaming. We debated a number of decision points and went back and forth for quite some time until we finally decided upon our final choice.

I hope to help provide some thoughts on what you will want to consider to pick up that perfect game table.
