Board Game Nook would like to help all of the gaming geeks out there to properly ring in the holiday season with meeple themed stockings!
This campaign will run for two weeks with limited quantities of stockings available. This will ensure we will be able to meet and exceed our backers’ expectations as well as have everything shipped out no later than December 3rd. We will also have an unlimited reward level available for those not as concerned about receiving their items before December 25th.
As this is Board Game Nook’s first Kickstarter campaign, we would like to keep things as simple and straight forward as possible. With that being said, if we manage to sell out of our reward levels we may decide to add more if there is enough interest.
We also have a couple of stretch goals and add-ons in the works when our campaign takes off!
Our meeple stockings are all crafted by hand using a custom-made pattern set. This means that like snowflakes, no two stockings will ever be exactly alike. However, there are a few things you can count on.
1. Each stocking will be high quality fleece and sturdy enough for all your geeky needs
2. They will all have a fleece meeple (your choice of color), top stitched onto the center of the stocking
3. The width of the top will be approximately 8in (20.32cm), and the length from the top to the tip of the foot will be approximately 16in (40.64cm)
4. The trim will be fleece and the same color as the meeple
5. The interior will be lined with white cotton and full of Christmas cheer!
Stocking names are so 2017… Now you can show off your stocking in style using your favourite meeple color! And if you like what you see please remember to share and spread the word :D!
This is the standard reward level. You will receive a white fleece stocking lined with white cotton. A fleece meeple of your chosen color will adorn the center and trim of the same color will adorn the top.
Please note: There is an unlimited reward section for people who are not as concerned about getting their stockings before December 25th or those who would like to prepare for next year! :D These will be produced after all of the limited rewards have been crafted.
Dice, games, miniatures.... Your Meeple Stocking can hold it all!
Country Style Meeple Matching Set
This reward is for a matching set of gingham (checkered pattern) meeple stockings. The red gingham is vintage cotton fabric and the green gingham is made of an upholstery material. Both stockings feature a felt meeple of matching color, white fleece trim and are lined with white cotton. They are the same dimensions as the general white stockings.
Note: Alcohol is for reference only and is not included with your stockings. We are sorry!!
Prototype Red with Yellow Meeple
This was the first stocking made from the pattern set. It features a yellow felt meeple, red fleece stocking with a white fleece trim. The material initially used was incredibly thick and therefore the interior did not need to be lined. It has the same dimensions as the general stockings. One of kind item :D
But they're not just stockings - they're also....
Stretch Goals as Add-Ons (In the works... possibly... maybe?)
1. Meeple Themed Santa Hat
2. Meeple Themed Elf Hat

Why Kickstarter and Our Funding
Board Game Nook is a small company founded by a group of individuals with a passion for gaming. While we would love to share our enthusiasm with the world, this can be quite difficult with the rigors of everyday life and the expenses associated with a start up business. Kickstarter offers us the perfect opportunity to raise some money in order to finish publishing our website and begin adding content. We believe our geeky stockings are a fun and functional way to introduce our company to the gaming world.
If you like our reward or know someone who might, we ask that you please share our Kickstarter on BBG, Facebook, Twitter etc. Spreading the word is a great way to support our project even if you can't afford one the meeple stockings!
Thank you all in advance!
All stockings will be sent out the first week of December - they will be sent no later than Monday December 3rd. This should allow for plenty of time for your stockings to arrive before Christmas. Our only caveat is for backers outside of North America, we will endeavor to get your product to you as quickly as possible, however we can not guarantee shipment will arrive before Christmas.
If the date of arrival does not matter OR if you just like to plan really, REALLY far ahead – then we have an unlimited pledge level GAURANTEED to arrive before Christmas of next year.

Risks and challenges
This is our first Kickstarter campaign and as such we intend to take all necessary measures to ensure as seamless a production as possible. To this end we have provided limited quantities of all rewards to guarantee that not only does each stocking arrive on time but that each is made with quality and care.
It is our aim to build trust, reliability and the confidence of our backers.
How we plan to minimize risk:
• Limited quantities of all reward levels
• Prompt communication between our backers and project managers
• Regular updates and complete transparency
• A short campaign to ensure production goals are met
• Shipping to take place first week of December
• Simple design, sample pictures of final product and…
STUFFED full of holiday Cheer – free of charge!
With these goals in mind Board Game Nook is confident in our ability to produce and fulfill our kickstarter commitments.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
