Check out our video above - you won’t regret it!

The GameBoks is a gaming station made in Denmark of high quality wood from sustainable sources. We're four friends with each of our different skillsets, who together have created the GameBoks. We have seen how the GameBoks has eased our gamer friends’ lives and brought them closer together. Now, we’re bringing this social experience to gamers globally.

The stereotypical, nerdy gamer is no more - eSports players have become the superstars of our time, and most gamers today lead an active lifestyle. The GameBoks is made for gamers who want to game at their friends' place, in the train, or on the balcony - not just confined to their room.

Danish Designed

The design of the GameBoks roots in our Nordic heritage. It's simply minimalistic. It doesn't just belong in a gamer's room. Cool laser engravings and beautiful wood make the Gameboks suit the living room like a piece of furniture. Compatible with close to every gaming console. And yes, you can also watch Netflix on it.

Focus on Sustainability

Our main focus as entrepreneurs is making a difference. The GameBoks is built after strict principles of using sustainable materials. We are plating a tree for every GameBoks Sold, and make sure that all wood and electronic components are produced responsibly. FSC certification pending. We show gratefulness for the beautiful wood by giving back to earth.

One of a Kind

Did you know that every GameBoks will be one of a kind? This is because the growth rings in the wood are entirely unique. The wood tells a different story every time - nobody will ever have a GameBoks like you.

Connecting IRL

The GameBoks is the go-to gadget for social gamers. The gaming station allows gamers to freely take their gear to play with friends. Lifehack: do like these guys when mom says 'go outside and play'.

It's impractical, clumsy and you can risk destroying your gear when you drag your console, monitor and cables to your friends' house. That makes a lot of gamers stay at home.

The mastermind behind GameBoks is Christian, who's been building stuff off of wood for a decade. He's been building everything from festival speakers to jewellery boxes for his mother. 

Besides being educated in furniture carpentry and technical design, Christian is a major gamer. He became increasingly frustrated with the impracticality of bringing his console, monitor and other gaming gear to his friend's places. Meanwhile, he discovered how friends distanced themselves from each other as they started gaming more. He decided to find a solution to the problem and make a quick draft.

One day in his shed, he built a simple case of spare wood to put his TV inside it. It worked and solved his problem.

Anthon saw potential in spreading this solution to other gamers. Together with a common friend, Steffen, who's got experience with tools and logistics, we started up the company in the beginning of May '18 with the goal of launching a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter. We knew that there was a long way from the first concept model to an actual prototype, so we started sketching.

Hundreds of hours of optimizations later, we had trimmed down the big, black, bulky box to become much more sleek and natural looking. Christian was satisfied with the progress. 

We worked on the business at a local library until we one day posted the story of the GameBoks on Imgur. The post got more than 100.000 views and resulted in a lot of feedback that we immediately started implementing in the process of optimizing the GameBoks. 

We've since built up a community of thousands, received hundreds of requests of purchase, and gotten access to funds and proper working conditions. This means that we got access to advanced computer aided design programs and heavy machineries such as CNC cutter and laser engraver. We are ready to start manufacturing of this bad boy. 

The GameBoks is eternally customizable

If we get the resources to upgrade from our co-workspace (where members take turns using the laser engraving machine), we might be able to do personalized laser engravings, colors, and maybe even gilding, as we’ve done with the pictured black stained prototype of the GameBoks. 

Through months of R&D and by hearing what our followers say, we have developed a vision for a future super edition of the GameBoks. This includes making the GameBoks compatible with computers as well, and building in:

- A battery pack (which would make the Boks heavier though)

- Capture card and camera for streaming

- Backpack straps

We will work hard towards improving the current version, and will always seek feedback from fans, friends and followers first. 

Use it in the car (of course not while driving!), bring it to events as we did at the FIFA eWorld cup in London, or take it to cafées like the one we visited in Soho.

The GameBoks logo is trademarked. We have furthermore applied for a design protection for the unique design of the GameBoks, as well as for CE and FSC certifications. 

Risks and challenges

No project is without risk and challenges but we try to do our absolute best to minimize them. We feel that we have done all the necessary work prior to launching this Kickstarter campaign.

The main risks are associated with timelines. We're fully confident in our ability to deliver the GameBoks, but projected timelines may shift forward or backward a bit, based on variables like the time to optimize the product.

We are ready to begin manufacturing, and your pledge will give us the opportunity to start the process. With your support, we can bring the GameBoks to gamers worldwide.
