...a nightmarish set of card displays and component trays which will enhance your gaming experience.
Many of us who enjoy horror-themed board games have often commented on the large amount of space required to fully enjoy them with family and friends. Responding to gamers around the globe, we've designed / crafted several pieces which we hope you'll enjoy during the game or displayed in the game room.
During the past year, we moved from the design stage to sculpting pieces. But, now we really need your help to move forward. To get pieces into your hands (and onto your table), we need to create molds from sculptures and then produce castings from the molds. Once we make our initial goal, we'll team with Valiant Enterprises, a mold-making company with four decades of experience.
Take a look for yourself and we hope to count you among our contributors.
Originally, we planned to produce an entire set of items, consisting of the following items, suitable for Arkham Horror TM:
* All of the pieces display sleeved cards beautifully!
We've designed and sculpted several pieces, including the Neighborhood Displays, Graveyard, Mythos Fortress, Cthulhu's Caldera, and most recently, the Item Tray; designed the Great Old One Display; and we'll move toward the design stage for the Player's Plate based upon your desire for more...through the Stretch Goals!
So, right now, Our Goal is to garner the capital needed to mold and cast our initial pieces for you ~ and we hope through your benevolence we may offer additional pieces to you through our Stretch Goals.
I'm really excited about the Rewards we have for you ~ through your generosity, we can complete the planned number of pieces and moreover get the entire set into your hands!
We have a phenomenal photographer (who has also assisted on crafting a number of the initial sculptured pieces) taking stunningly-beautiful shots of these displays.
As you're New to the Order, we offer you a small, digital picture, suitable for framing or as a screensaver which will definitely get others' attention.
Advanced in the Order ~ We give our thanks to you by providing a large, digital picture of our finely-crafted pieces.
Keys to the Gates: Gain a set of our detailed display dividers.
Recruited by the Order ~ We have designed both a dice bowl and a business card holder ~ your choice!

Where would we be without Stretch Goals? These are exciting, because you're really "calling-the-shots" on how much farther we go with this Project. While we've sculpted Cthulhu's Caldera, should we mold it and cast it? How about an Item or Great Old One Display? Finally, how interested are you in the production of a Player's Plate? You get to decide . . . isn't that really the intent behind the Stretch Goals?
Check out the items below ~ You can make them a reality through contributing.
Cthulhu's Caldera: Where the Other World meets this world ~ a place for your Other World Cards, Monster Tiles, and Gate Markers.
If we make this Stretch Goal, Cultist Priest Level contributors or higher will receive a Cthulhu's Caldera.
Item Display: Holds all of the small Investigator cards in an attractive display that you can hand-off to players around the table. No more tall piles that fall over after the first draw.
If we make this Stretch Goal, Cultist Priest Level contributors or higher will receive an Item Display.
Great Old One Display: No more looking around the table for the sheet and associated chits ~ it's all there in its tentacally-glory!
If we make this Stretch Goal, Cultist Priest Level contributors or higher will receive a Great Old One Display.
Player's Plate: So, maybe it's my OCD acting-up, but I need all of my cards organized and all of the fiddly-bits in the right place.
If we make this Stretch Goal, Cultist Priest Level contributors or higher will receive a Player's Plate. Additional Player's Plates may be ordered later directly from us!

He has served 17 years in the United States Air Force (10 years Active Duty, and 7 years (currently) in the Reserves) and is employed by the Deprtment of Justice. This Project started as an idea of how to organize the myriad pieces associated with many games ... what you have before you is an Idea brought to Life.
Absolutely ~ I've sleeved over 1,500 cards and am currently playing my 3rd game with the card holders and their functionality matches their stunning form.
We took great care when devising these pieces to ensure they didn't dominate the table and for nearly all of them, they would be accessible around the table ~ lightweight and portable. Here are the dimensions (Width and Depth) on the items, thus far:
- Neighborhood Display: 3.25" x 3.25
- Graveyard: 13" x 8.5"
- Mythos Fortress: 12.5" x 11"
The short answer is yes! Of course that answer is dependent upon our incredible supporters. We really want to provide ALL of the Stretch Goals to you and then begin to solicit ideas about what the community wants and needs.
