About this project
WHY POP-UP TERRAIN KITS?
Tabletop Terrain is seldom destroyed during play. The real problem is storage and transportation. How to you field enough terrain to populate a 4x8 table and still have room in your dorm to sleep? The answer is Pop-up Terrain! It stores easily and can be taken anywhere. Also, it looks sweet!

"How do I get this pop-up terrain?"
By becoming a backer! Silly! For instance, at the $32 level, we'll send you 12inx18in 80 lb. cardstock sheets in SEPIA already printed with the textures. Then you'll cut and assemble them yourself!
"Do I need anything else?"
You will need to collect some additional tools and supplies:
- An exacto knife
- Stiffer material to act as backing (such as foam board, cardboard, or matte board.)
The Original Goal
Will fund the creation of a kit for making five 12" across (14" from furthest corner to furthest corner) hexagonal pop-up settings. Along with simple written & comprehensive video instructions.
We reserve the right to change these designs in any way in order to make them more awesome.
When we hit $5,500, we'll add 30 sq. inches of bushes, debris, and cargo designs to THE FULL & ASSEMBLED KITS and downloadable PDFs that you can use as additional parts to customize your pop-up terrain settings.
When we hit $10,000, the VIKING VILLAGE terrain setting will be added to THE FULL & ASSEMBLED KITS and downloadable PDFs. It's base will consist of two 12" across hexagons.
When we hit $12,500 the FISH SHACK (one tiny setting) will be added to the FULL KIT & ASSEMBLED KITS & DOWNLOADABLE PDFs. Three tiny settings fit into the space occupied by a single regular hex setting. It's the ideal place to buy really flat fantasy fish!
When we hit $15,000 the HEDGE ROWS will be added to the FULL KIT & ASSEMBLED KITS & DOWNLOADABLE PDFs. The hedge rows will be on a single hex. This will be a sparsely filled shrubby terrain. Quick! Someone tell Edward about this, I think his hands (scissors?) were getting a bit rusty!
(prototype - just imagine it with textures, that's what I do)
When we hit $17,500 the ROCKY FIELD will be added to the FULL KIT & ASSEMBLED KITS & DOWNLOADABLE PDFs. The rocky field will be on a single hex. This terrain will have rocky outcroppings & open space. Perfect for fighting skill against skill alone, just ask the man in black.
When we hit $20,000 the FOREST will be added to the FULL KIT & ASSEMBLED KITS & DOWNLOADABLE PDFs. The Forest will be on a single hex. Nothing bad has ever happened in a Forest, right? I mean it's just full of cute singing woodland creatures, right?
When we hit $22,500 the ADVENTURING GEAR DEPOT (one tiny setting) will be added to the FULL KIT & ASSEMBLED KITS & DOWNLOADABLE PDFs. Three tiny settings fit into the space occupied by a single regular hex setting. Whatever it is that your adventuring party needs, they'll have it (I hear the price match too!)!
When we hit $25,000 the SPELLS & ALCHEMY SHOPS (one tiny setting) will be added to the FULL KIT, ASSEMBLED KITS & DOWNLOADABLE PDFs. Three tiny settings fit into the space occupied by a single regular hex setting. It probably won't be Diagon Alley, but it will be really really awesome still! :) This Finishes up the Market Place Hex (as the three tiny settings combine to form one Hex! Or they can be placed a part in other areas on your table).
When we hit $27500, LONG LONESOME HIGHWAY will be added to the FULL KIT, ASSEMBLED KITS & DOWNLOADABLE PDFs. Long lonesome highway includes several flat road features that can be used to customize your settings
When we hit $30000, BRIDGE OVER TROUBLED WATERS will be added to the FULL KIT, ASSEMBLED KITS & DOWNLOADABLE PDFs. Bridge over troubled waters will include several flat water features that you can either permanently add to your settings or throw them down and pick them up as you see fit. It will also include a mini setting foot bridge that has a river running under that is designed to be used with the water features.
When we hit $32,500, ON TARGET! will be added to the FULL KIT, ASSEMBLED KITS & DOWNLOADABLE PDFs. On target! has objective markers & target dummies (insert eyebrow raise), both that can be added to you pop-up or just be collapsable card stock gaming fun! They use slot-together technology. Oooh Ahhh Shiny!
When we hit $35,000, THE PLAYING FIELD hex will be added to the FULL KIT, ASSEMBLED KITS & DOWNLOADABLE PDFs. It will be completely flat (it will have textures on it) and won't even be intended to pop-up! Just a cool empty space, so that you don't have to have weird table space in-between your hexes.
When we hit $37,500, TOPPLED ARCHES hex will be added to the FULL KIT, ASSEMBLED KITS & DOWNLOADABLE PDFs. The toppled arches has a high sniper's nest and plenty of walls for cover. The last vestige of the fabled arches of Strymia. Mike, really likes this one...
Risks and challenges
We've tried hard to minimize the risks of this project by making it very simple. We're working closely with the printer on every detail of the project to make sure that both our expectations and the expectations of our backers are fully met.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
As things come to a close over the next several hours. A small reminder about shipping and how much I love you all...
International Backers! We realize that shipping prices can be annoying. :( But, until I can muster up enough owls to do my bidding, I am afraid that we will have to use the traditional version of mailing items.
All packages will be shipped via USPS. We will require shipping before we can send you your pop-ups. These prices are FINAL, we will not increase the prices.
We ask that you add your shipping via PAYPAL:
We are asking this, because below are the exact prices we will owe in shipping from our end. Between KS & Amazon their cut is 8-10% (rightfully so), but through Paypal it is only around 3%.
We will not be able to ship your order (when the time comes) if you have not paid for your shipping, nor will we refund your order if you decide later down the road that you don't want to pay shipping. IF you add your shipping through Kickstarter, we will have to ask for additional funds to make up the difference from the cut KS & Amazon take. So PLEASE PLEASE adjust through Paypal. We apologize for the hassle and thank you for your patience!

Turns out that paper weighs a lot. :( We realize that making distribution friends in other countries would go a long way to helping decrease international shipping prices for all of our projects.
IF these prices make you want to pull out your hair and run screaming into the mountains then PLEASE CHECK OUT our PDF level that has NO shipping costs involved! :)
Currently, both 12in x 18in & 8.5in x 11 in (or letter)
We are planning on something like that via the pdfs. :)
