Arsenal is a deck box with a built-in cloth mat! Incredibly convenient in both form and function, and always flashy, Arsenal unfolds and collapses with flair and ease. At 24" by 13.5", it's a full-size, quality playing surface for any card game! The current design is something I've worked on for my own use over the last 6 years, slowly improving it from prototype to prototype. Now, I'm using this Kickstarter to find out how you want it to be!
Check out the polls above to see how current backers want the design to turn out, or if you have backed, make your opinion known!
High-quality microfiber cloth, with original art!
Arsenal's mat is durable and soft, and won't catch card corners during play. Art is screen printed, so it'll last, without creating any pesky raised surfaces on the mat. Creases are visible, but soft enough that cards will slide right over them without issue.
Plenty of storage, for your cards and more!
While arsenal is still changing, it will never hold less than:
- A 24" x 13.5" Cloth mat
- 8 [0.5 inch] 12 sided dice, or 12 [0.6 inch] 6 sided dice
- 130 total double sleeved magic-sized cards
Limited edition dice and plastic tokens!
Back for 5 dollars or more and get a limited edition die (or dice), with the AGF logo! It has an obvious dot in the center, because why the heck wouldn't the one side have a dot on it?
At 12 dollars or more, get 2 tokens as well! Printed and cut in plastic, their notched edges also allow them to be used easily as deck dividers, and their surface design makes them convenient field centers. You can even use dice to mark attributes, from stats to keywords to quantity.
And of course, how will everything be shipped?
Shipping is added in when you back - as you get more units of Arsenal, shipping goes down, as does the price of Arsenal itself! You'll also be added to the permanently-online backer timeline, with progressively shinier nameplates.
If you're getting JUST dice, those will ship out by November. Yeah, it takes a surprisingly long time to get these made!
If you're getting dice and tokens, those will ship out together at that time (by November) as well.
If you're getting an Arsenal, you rock! I flippin love ya, and will be shipping those out by March at the latest. I'll be doing what I can to get them out and about in time for Christmas, but everything would have to go according to plan. That's possible, and I'll be doing what I can to make it happen, but if it doesn't, they'll still be out by March.
Risks and challenges
Backing a Kickstarter campaign comes with its fair share of risks - some haven't delivered in the past, and some take years to do so.
To give you confidence that you'll be getting your rewards, I've set reasonable goals time-wise and financially. In an ideal world, you'll all get your rewards before Christmas, but I've made it clear that that isn't a certainty.
A manufacturing path already exists! In the event this funds, I've got them ready to go the moment I give them the green light to do so. I'm confident things will start smoothly, so the extra 2 months into February are a buffer for if manufacturers make a mistake somewhere.
As a Mechanical Engineer by education, I'm prepared to make all the changes requested. Any functionality I'm not comfortable designing in the timeframe I'm giving won't be considered right now, unfortunately. That's my own limitation, and I apologize if the feature you want is too complex to make it into this design.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
