ALL STRETCH GOALS UNLOCKED! The Board Game Garage is the perfect solution for carrying and storing your favorite games and accessories of all shapes and sizes, including popular oversized games that are just too big for other bags. Its versatility and style are unmatched! No more messing around with flimsy department store bags or bags that are too small for the games you want to play. The Board Game Garage looks great and works great. Game night made easier!

 

UPDATE! At the end of Day 2 of the campaign we take you behind the scenes and give you an inside look at the project. See the project beyond the campaign page!

 

 

The Board Game Garage has everything you want and need in a carrying case for your games. It's made from sturdy 600D outer fabric that offers the best combination of weight and strength. It's reinforced with foam padding to protect the bag's contents from scuffs and scratches. 

Finally, a main compartment that's big enough to fit your favorite rectangular games! The 3/4 zippered opening allows direct access to every game. The interior features a soft, no-scratch lining. It packs standard-sized games with ease and comfortably fits oversized favorites.

The main compartment can hold six standard-sized games or two or more of your oversized favorites

You'll love the top compartment, which is perfect for storing smaller games and accessories such as playing cards, pencils, custom dice, meeples, minis, tokens, and poker chips. 

 A zippered pocket inside the lid is perfect for rulebooks, score sheets, and other documents. 

Two side pockets provide even greater versatility to accommodate all your storage needs. 

The adjustable and removable shoulder strap allows for easy carrying of even the heaviest games. Side handles offer additional strength and flexibility. The shoulder strap is included at no additional cost!

The outside of the bag is protected with rugged feet. The zippers will be durable YKK brand with matching pulls. The bottom of the bag contains a sturdy PVC liner for added strength and stability. 

When not in use, the bag flattens for easy storage.

ALL STRETCH GOALS UNLOCKED! We've done our best to bring you the highest quality product right out of the gate. The Board Game Garage is offered in three stylish color combinations and includes a matching shoulder strap at no additional cost. 

The fabric of the Board Game Garage is naturally water resistant, but a rain cover will provide the ultimate protection from the elements. Once unlocked, each bag will come with a nylon rain cover. Our manufacturer is finishing the prototype and pictures will be available soon.

Bag color #2 is unlocked! Our backers chose "Oxblood" (dark red bag with black zippers and trim and a white logo). 

Bag color #3 is unlocked! Our backers chose the "Kickstarter" (black bag with green zippers and trim and a white logo).

Our manufacturer is making samples of the new color combinations. They will be available to view before you make your final color selection(s) through the pledge manager.

Backers who pledge at the DOUBLE-UP! level will be able to choose two different colored bags if desired.

We know you work hard for your money, so we've done our best to make our bag affordable. During the Kickstarter campaign, pricing will be as follows:

The retail price of the Board Game Garage after the campaign will be $109.99. Pledge now and save!

Save even more by pledging with a friend at the DOUBLE-UP! level and pay only once for international shipping. Domestic shipping is still free at the DOUBLE-UP! level. Speaking of shipping...

We are excited to be able to offer FREE SHIPPING WITHIN THE UNITED STATES during the campaign! We have great options when it comes to fulfillment, and we are proud to offer EU, Canada, and Australia/New Zealand-friendly shipping. That means all import duties and VAT are fully covered by your pledge! 

All reward levels include a shipping subsidy that will not be available after the campaign. 

Save on shipping by ordering with a friend! Order two bags in the DOUBLE-UP! reward level and only pay once for international shipping! This offer is only good for delivery to a single address. 

Due to the risks of fraud and unreliability in the postal systems of certain countries, we cannot ship worldwide at this time. If your country is not included in a pledge level, please contact us before you pledge and we'll do our best to work out a custom fit solution.

With any custom-made product like this, factories require a minimum order quantity. We are ready to begin manufacturing, but we need your help to hit that minimum order quantity to bring the product to life. Our funding goal is based on that amount. Any orders above and beyond the goal will be easily fulfilled. 

Your support during the campaign means the world to us, so all pledges made through Kickstarter will be delivered before retail fulfillment begins. 

We're proud of the Board Game Garage. We have worked hard to make it stylish, sturdy, and versatile so that you'll love it as much as we do. 

We are so confident you'll love the Board Game Garage that we're offering a full refund if you decide it's not for you. Simply return it to us within 30 days of delivery and we will refund the purchase price! Back with confidence!

Adam and Belinda Lenhard are a husband and wife team of 15 years, playing games as often as possible with their four children and close friends.

Risks and challenges

The manufacturing process almost always involves unexpected delays and snags. In order to mitigate those risks, we have personally visited our factories, walked their floors, produced dozens of prototypes with them, and obtained exact production quotes for this project. We know what it takes to pull off a project like this, and we're confident we can deliver.

We’re working with great partners to help with shipping and fulfillment. Regardless, shipping is never easy for a project like this, so we are committed to working tirelessly through any issues that arise to make sure every Board Game Garage is delivered.

Our philosophy is to deliver the best product possible as soon as its ready. We won't cut corners to speed up the production process. That said, we believe a realistic delivery estimate is February of 2018. Due to the logistics of international shipping, some backers may receive their rewards sooner than others.

We will provide regular updates throughout the campaign and be as transparent as possible. If you have a question, please ask!
