About this project
What is Gamer Tribes?
We are the new kid in town. Our job is to give you clothing and accessories to help make you the best gamer you can be. We have divided the gaming world into three tribes:
Our mission is to bring the worlds of these Gamer Tribes together by supporting all types of gaming. The first step we are taking to make this bold new world, is giving people a flag to bare. A symbol to wear to show the world that you are a gamer and you are proud!
The idea fo the tribe logos were developed and brought to life by the creative powers of two people:
- Tim Baker- Gamer Tribes Founder and Owner
- Cyril Van Der Heagan- World renoun Fantasy Artist
This is for the card players in the world.It doesnt matter what card game you play, you can tell the world that you are a Tcg or Ccg player!
Table top and RPG players use die everytime they play.Sport this Gamertribes logo and the world will be yours!!! (or at least, you will roll better. ) :)
If you play console, computer, app, online or not. Digital gaming is all over the world. Live the gamer life!
The rewards are the gamertribe tribe logo shirts. Including a Kickstarter only Founder Tribe shirt. With the Founders Tribe Shirt, your name will be forever listed on our website as a member of the Founders Tribe. Also, you will be entitled to a 5% discount for all Gamer Tribes website transactions in the future.
All shirts are made in the usa and printed in the usa.
Gildan Ultra cotton shirt, great quality. All logos are screen printed.Shirts are in both mens and womens sizes small- 2xl.
Thank you to everyone for your interest! We had a great response in the first 12 hours. It has spurred me to do this:
The first 100 backers at the $20 or higher level will ALL GET SWAG!!!! No matter the level you choose, the first 100 backers will get free stuff that will increase with each stretch goal that we meet. Right now is a 3 tribe logo bumper sticker. If you sign up for a level that has swag included, you will get SWAG x2, if you are in the first 100 backers. Share this awesome deal with the world and tell them to get in early for free stuff!!!!!

there and came the US in the early 90's where he went to RISD, worked at
Turbine Entertainment on MMORPG for many years, then became independent until today. He lives with 3 cats in New England. He's actually less boring than this bio.

On a side note: Cyril and I have both put a great deal of effort into Gamertribes. Without him, the images from my head would have never been made into a reality. That being said,Cyril is sick and can not work at the same pace as he once was able. I met Cyril in 2008, at Magic the Gathering Grand Prix: Boston. Since then, Cyril has been to my home town may times for the Fantasy art event that is Illixcon. He has not been able to attend in the past 2 years due to illness.
5% of all money from this project goes right to Cyril. The money will help keep this amazing man and artist going and keep him doing what he loves. Art. I cant thank him enough for all he has done.
What will we do next?
The money made from this launch of our first clothing line will go to do many things:
- Products for the retail online store at www.gamertribes.com
- The opening of our Retail store in the physical world.
- Development for our new gamer products which include products like die, deck sleeves and boxes, hats and hoodies. Many more to come.
- Content for our website. I already have some people lined up for all tribes to write content for each tribe.
I am glad to feild any question about any topics that relate to Gamer Tribes.Feel Free to look at our facebook and website.
Thank you to all who have supported me and to all of the gamers that live in this great world.Get in the tribe!!!
