About this project

6 Squared Studios proudly presents… Old West Street Tiles! These highly detailed, hand-sculpted resin tiles allow you to quickly lay down an old west street on any game table in a matter of seconds. Each tile is 6” x 6”, made from high quality resin and comes unpainted, ready for your creative touch but…

We need your help to bring these tiles and accessories to life. We’re seeking $2500 to cover silicone rubber for the molds, polyurethane plastic resin from which to produce the pieces and some new machinery to expand our operations and produce more sophisticated terrain pieces in the future.

Reward Tiers

À la carte

This level is designed for backers who want to show their support but don't necessarily need a set of street tiles. As a bonus, this level lets you shop our à la carte menu where you can purchase any items that are unlocked through stretch goals. While this level does not receive any of the free unlocked stretch goals, it does allow you to customize your reward to suit your needs.

Please note that due to the highly variable nature of this level, backers will be asked to pay their actual shipping costs based on their final pledge. The shipping charge will be calculated and collected separately at the end of the Kickstarter.

Set #1: Narrow Streets - $35

This backer level includes the Narrow Streets Set which consists of six narrow, straight street tiles and two narrow 90° turn tiles. Backers at this level also receive any free add-ons unlocked through stretch goals as well as access to purchase any the à la carte add-ons they want. If you want multiple sets, simply increase your pledge (with additional shipping) accordingly.

Shipping for this level breaks down as follows:

  • For backers in Canada & the USA, please add $10.00 per set to your pledge.
  • For backers anywhere else in the world, please add $20.00 per set to your pledge.

Please see the shipping section for more details.

At this level, the shipping's on us.

The Basics:

$5 Pledge Level: Pays actual shipping, calculated based on the final pledge and charged separately after the campaign closes.

International Shipping

Many countries impose additional fees to import items. This could be a VAT, customs fees, duty & taxes but whatever your country chooses to call it, these fees are your responsibility. We will declare the actual value of your pledge (the final sum that you contribute) and include an invoice in or on the box to help the process go smoothly and keep you (and us) out of trouble with the authorities.

Risks and challenges

Every crowdfunding project carries its own unique set of challenges. We’ve backed a great number of kickstarters and seen the full spectrum from failed projects right up through wildly successful ones and we’ve seen the challenges faced by each. We’ve taken precautions to mitigate these challenges and think we’re in a very good position to deliver a fun and successful project and do it on time.

Campaign size. Possibly our biggest challenge will be getting the word out that this project exists. We’re confident that our products are attractive and useful additions to any tabletop terrain collection so the challenge is to make gamers everywhere aware that they exist. To that end, we’ve run some social media contests to increase our following on Facebook and Twitter so that more people heard the initial announcement. We’ve posted the launch and pre-launch announcements on Kickstarter-friendly forums and gaming news sites and we’ve planned some stretch goals to unlock at certain non-dollar milestones to encourage our backers to help spread the word.

Project completion. We’re not going to be one of those projects that waits until the project is over to begin the next steps. We’ve already got most of the original sculpts completed and more are coming in all the time. We’re not asking for help to get the originals made, we’re asking for your help to get them into production! Also, there are no outside sculptors who need to fit us into their busy schedules; our pieces are all made in house by one of 6 Squared’s three partners.

Manufacturing delays. We’ve all seen it; a project does well during the campaign and then when the product is passed on for mass production, delays crop up – usually beyond the control of the project creator who is left having to apologize for the delays. We’re not passing off our tiles or accessories to a 3rd party manufacturer. We’re doing it all ourselves, right here in Canada so we’ll be in complete control every step of the way.

Shipping surprises. Sometimes, project creators are caught off guard when the Post Office is less than happy about them bringing in a hundred packages, all going to different destinations (often different countries) with no notice. As luck would have it, one of 6 Squared’s partners owns a successful shipping and logistics company as a day job. We’ll be partnering with his other company to ship out your rewards as smoothly as can be. We feel that we’ve left sufficient time in our estimated delivery dates to work out any kinks in the plan and if this project is in danger of exploding beyond our ability to fulfil on time, we’ll put a cap on the current reward tiers and add new tiers for new backers with later delivery dates rather than try unrealistically to cram everything in before the deadline.
