I'm back again after a very successful Kickstarter for terrain and zones! After many suggestions and ideas about future projects from my backers, one really stuck with me. Before starting my previous project I actually wanted to make neoprene gaming mats. Unfortunately the gaming mats have a much higher production cost that made it not practical, especially when I am pricing my neoprene mats very aggressively. Fortunately everything worked out and now I am able to offer these great mats to you!
While most of these mats can be used for multiple tabletop games, I was asked to look into GuildBall specific mats. I take all my supporters feedback very seriously and I've done my best to produce a solid pitch to play on. I will shamelessly plug my terrain, which I was told also works pretty will with GB.
Sizing Options (2mm Thick Neoprene/MousePad):
Field Ball Mat 3'x3'
Space Mat 3'x3', 6'x3' , 6'x4'
Grass Mat 4'x4', 6'x4'
Snow Mat 4'x4', 6'x4'
Sand Mat 4'x4', 6'x4'
Smaller sizes are simply cross sections of the larger 6'x4' mat. They are not smaller versions or shrunk. See pictures for the section it will include. At this time any additional sizes would have to be a stretch goal. At the current funding goal I cannot make as many sizes as I would like to carry at my store. As with any mat you purchase made of this material, a tiny amount of shrinkage is inevitable during the manufacturing process. I will be working with my supplier to make sure that they are within the margins of acceptability and play-ability.
Carrying Case: The Carrying case will be in 3' and 4' (fits 6' mats) sizes as a $5 optional add-on per mat. There is also to purchase extra for $10 each if needed. The case will be the only item with HiddenForestGaming branding.
Free Shipping: Due to cost of shipping I will be keeping this Kickstarter in the United States only. After my Kickstarter has completed all mats will be available on my website www.HiddenForestGaming.com with international shipping options.
Stretch Goals (TBD):
- Additional designs (Ocean)
- Additional Sizes
- Grids (various sizes and shapes)
- Space Asteroids (terrain)
Help for Purchasing Multiple Mats:
To pledge to more than one mat, just add the total cost for all the pledges desired and put that total amount under 1 of the pledges. After the Kickstarter ends you will receive a survey which will give you the opportunity to declare which mats you pledged for. Kickstarter does not have a better way to handle multiple varying pledges at this time.
You guys were amazing last time around getting the word out for my kickstarter, but I think I will need much more help here. The audience is much bigger and there are so many games I may have never heard of. If you are playing another tabletop game and you happen to be a part of a group that could benefit from one of these mats, please make them aware of this kickstarter!
Thank you all for your interest and I hope you see something you like!
Risks and challenges
My challenges are the same as the last Kickstarter. I have no concerns on making or shipping out the product. That is guaranteed. The only thing that is out of my control is the shipping time. Sometimes shipping can get caught up at customs depending on the day it arrives and my luck.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
