News

02.06.2015
Dear supporters of our project Dungeon Revolutions,
it seems to us, that kickstarter was not the right way to fund our project. We had more requests on our websites than we had backers on kickstarter, so we will try to get our product ready for selling in our online-Shop as soon as possible. Because we don't want to waste even more precious time, we will stop the kickstarter now and will fund our project by ourselves.
----------------------------
Liebe Unterstützer unseres Projekts "Dungeon Revolutions",
es scheint, dass Kickstarter nicht der richtige Weg ist, um unser Projekt zu finanzieren. Wir hatten mehr direkte Anfragen auf unseren Websiten, als wir Unterstützer auf Kickstarter hatten. Deshalb werden wir versuchen unser Produkt so schnell wie möglich zum Verkauf in unseren Online-Shop zu bringen. Da wir nicht noch mehr wertvolle Zeit verlieren wollen, beenden wir den Kickstarter und werden unser Projekt nun doch selbst finanzieren.  

We have been asked for a Reward consisting of pre-cut boards
and...
tadaa... here it is: Reward 2 (S2) 
and a video that shows how to build a modular dungeon with these pieces.

Material

The boards consist of highly compressed EPS foam. In comparison with standard styrofoam it's much harder, tighter and it doesn't crumble when cutting. Hardness and stability are comparable with styrodur.

The material is so hard that a grownup person can stand on a board without deforming it, although a board of 30 x 30 x 2 cm only weighs 75 grams.

At the edges the boards are sloped, just as wide as half a groove. Putting 2 boards together another perfect groove is formed and the passage is nearly invisible.

The boards have a stone texture so that a simple dry brushing is enough to reach a fine optical result...

 ... to get a ready to play condition.

Using the different heights of 2, 4 und 6 cm, walls, corridors and rooms evolve without wasting precious playing area by installing walls.

However - if you like walls it's no problem to build up some of them :-)

With a tile size of 2.5 x 2.5 cm the boards fit to many popular board games and miniature bases and offer 144 fields to play and have fun with.

Handling

Easy Cutting
This is the most simple access to building 3D dungeons ever. But the essential tool is the foam cutter.

It's not possible to make a perfectly straight cut with a carpet cutter on another kind of knife. But who owns a foam cutter will be excited of the easy handling. No need to size, no need to mark. Fix the wire in a 90° angle and create your own phantasy world in little time. Even the creation of walkable stairs takes olny a few minutes.

Engrave patterns
With a ruler and a pencil it's easy to engrave different tile patterns.

Ageing the boards
Ageing and frazzeling the grooves can also be done with easy tools in a minimum of time.

  • With a pencil:
  • with thinner
  • apply thinner on the board
  • with a bowl of aluminium foil
  • Roll it on your board
  • Sanding the board to partially remove the stone texture 

Trenching

Little streams, lakes and puddles can be created with transparent resin. The dimples can be trenched with a soldering gun and a wire snare.

Glueing

Every thinner-free glue can be used and of course the hot-meld-gun.

Painting

Every acrylic or water based color is applicable. Once the board is painted, the color is resistant to abrasion. Don't use thinner based color or varnish, it damages the material.

See all these facts and a short example in our video

Why kickstarter?

The boards you can see on our pictures and in the videos are only a few pieces, produced in a pre-mold for a pretty high price per piece. For a serial production we need a milled full aluminium mold and have to order a big job lot to get an economical price for the boards.

Why should you support us on kickstarter?

One good reason is the price. Our kickstarter prices are 12 - 20 % less than the regular sales prices after the end of the kickstarter project (depending on the type of reward). 
You'd be one of the first to hold these boards in your hands and last but not least we can't realize a series production without the support of enthusiastic people who see the same advantages in these boards as we do.

Special thanks

Special thanks to Jingle Punks and Media Right Productions for providing the fantastic music for our videos and to Bruce Hirst for the friendly permission to show his amazing Hirst Art products on our exhibition boards.

Risks and challenges

Our business partner and manufacturer is one of the biggest foam piece producers in Germany with more than 50 years of experience. All preparation for making the series production mold is done and we can start the production immediately after a successful funding of the project. The manufacturer is very close to our location, so we can pick up the boards instantly after production to prevent delays or other complications in delivery.
Shipping within Germany and worldwide will be registered to make sure that all parcels will reach the backers.
