Gato The Gaming Towel
The Gaming Towel is a combination of a beach towel and board games. It's as useful as a regular towel but also gives a lot of fun.
We would like to remind you that at this moment, these games are available:
These games will be available as soon as the higher goal is reached:

The gaming towel is a combination of two things: a regular beach towel and board games.
We came up with this idea while sitting on a beach and thinking about our favorite board games (like Puerto Rico, Dixit, Settlers of Catan, Game of Thrones). We regretted that we couldn't bring them with us. There were certain obstacles to overcome:
- too many elements
- too small elements
- delicate material
- unfavourable conditions - wind, water and sand
And then the idea of a simple game drawn on a "beach-resistant" board, just came about. A game that requires almost nothing to play. Only a simple item that everyone can get very easily even on a beach. An item you can lose without being sad about it.
A bottle cap!
When we were kids, we used to play many games with bottle caps. We had awesome races, epic battles and exciting matches. Now we want to revive these adventures.
Choosing a beach towel as a board for all these games made this possible.
When you go to the beach you take a towel anyway, so why not to take ours?
The technique of playing for dexterity games is very simple: you just flick a bottle cap with your forefinger or middle finger to achieve the goal.
You do it in order to push your "car" in Motor Race or to hit other players in Gladiators' Fight etc.
In classic games, you just move your pawn on squares.
We present 1 classic game: Rescue the Princess and 4 dexterity games: Motor Race, Gladiators' Fight, Curling and Football/Soccer.
All games are easy to play, but require skill or practice to master them. All basic rules are set out in the corner of each towel, but we also give you a possibility to change them the way you like.
You can decide how many players will be playing, what is allowed and what is not, and the best part in dexterity games: you can shape the ground using sand, which will make every game unique! Hills and valleys, pits and trenches will make the game sometimes harder, sometimes easier but surely more interesting.
Here come the games:
We've got to rescue the princess! I know your first reaction will be:
-„What are you talking about?” and „Don't get me funny ideas, I'm not going anywhere”.
-„They are going to kill her!” - I would answer.
-„Better her than me”
Ok, you've got a point there. But there is one reason why you should save her: „She is rich”. „Rich?” „Rich and powerful. Listen, if you were to rescue her, the reward would be... more wealth than you can imagine.”
So, may the force be ever in your favor and go get'em tiger!
Goal of the game: Rescue the princess, which means get to #100 square faster than your opponents.
Players start with their pawns on the camp. They roll a dice in turns and move their pawns according to the number on the dice. If they don't have a dice – they can use a special field, and roll with a stone or another cap.
When they land on a square with ladder, they go up, when they land on a square with snake, they slide down.
They can also play with obstacles. Before the game starts they put small stones on dark blue squares. Before going further, they must knock it out (which means – land exactly on it). After that they can put in anywhere else.
- it's classic board game – if you don't like dexterity games
- 2 players – 5 minutes, so it's perfect as beach activity
- it's also good for kids and younger siblings
Not so long time ago, in the galaxy very close to ours… Greedy bounty hunters (in Hatts), mighty warriors, curious space travelers. They all started meeting in the same place, Gladiators' Arena, to admire the most interesting fights in the entire universe. Obi Wan Kenobi, Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker - these are the names you all have heard of. Due to legal responsibilty we do not claim they have anything in common with our game. But there were a lot of famous and glorious heroes who won battles on this arena: Black Starlord Destroyer, Fierce Hark from the Zenubia Prime, John…
Your destiny is calling, your time has come. Be like mighty Saturn or prepare Uranus.
The goal of the game: be the last one standing in the arena.
At the beginning players put their „gladiatiors” around the arena. Flicking one after another, they introduce them into the arena and try to knock the opponents out of it.
They can also agree that they can kill gladiators by hitting them couple of times or jumping on them.
So any number of players can play the game and teams can consist of 1-99 gladiators.
The game may seem very simple and easy, but only at first glance. It is highly competitive and knocking someone out of the arena isn’t a piece of cake.
Each player can also make his own special team of heavy and big caps. Find out which caps are the best for this game and give you victory!
- requires more skill but gives more satisfaction,
- more players - more fun,
- most flexible for new rules.
Our main goal: 19.600 $ to make the dream come true!

Risks and challenges
Our greatest fear is sending the Gaming Towels to you. We don't know how many packages there will be, but to coordinate several hundreds or even thousands of them will be a great challenge.
Our producing partner can provide all towels within 2 months, so we think you will receive your Gaming Towel ca. June, but please forgive us, if we are a little late.
We will ensure you are kept abreast.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
