We are Cigar Box Battle - a Nashville, TN based small gaming company that designs and produces fleece terrain mats for table-top miniature games. If it involves tabletop gaming, miniatures, terrain and dice....we love it!
Imagine our popular, high-quality PLUSH mats, but with a second design printed on the reverse side! Double your gaming pleasure while taking up the same space as a single standard Cigar Box Battle Mat "4x6 plus" PLUSH gaming mat.
These Kickstarter terrain mats will be our premium PLUSH 60" x 80" fleece terrain mats. PLUSH mats are made from a short, teddy bear like fur fleece that adds some texture and depth to the mats.
We have a special opportunity to print these premium double sided fleece terrain mats if we can guarantee a high enough volume, but we need your help to reach this goal!
These double sided mats will NOT be available on our website once this KS ends. This will be an exclusive opportunity and the only way to get them!
We will have multiple pledge levels, each offering from one to ten double sided mats, with greater discounts at higher pledge levels, and even the option to have us design your own custom 6'x4' mat! We will also have a couple stretch goals along the way!
We will offer flat rate $15 USA shipping regardless of quantity, so the more you order, the more you save! International shipping will be billed in addition to the cost of the mats, and any import fees, customs duties, etc., will be the sole responsibility of the buyer. Unfortunately, our PLUSH terrain mats are heavy and international shipping can be expensive. We apologize but international shipping costs are out of our control.
Our plan is to print, pack and ship these mats during September and have them on your gaming table by the end of November. We will work hard to have some pledge levels ship in October too if possible. Rest assured that we will have the printing presses running overtime and we will work hard to get you your order as fast as possible!
This project is very customizable and you will be able to select which of our existing designs you want printed on each side! You can have Desert #120 printed on one side for your WW2 North Africa game and have #250 Space Frontier printed on the opposite side for your space combat game! It's your choice! You will let us know at the conclusion of the campaign which of our designs you would like printed on your mats. It's that easy!
Our goal is to offer only premium quality products so some designs that don't print well in combination with other designs will be excluded from this Kickstarter. These are primarily the "snow" designs as the white color allows for some cross-bleeding during the printing process. The licensed "Across a Deadly Field" mats and all hex/grid overlay options will also be excluded from the Kickstarter.
When working with fabric and multiple suppliers there can be some minimal variance in the total dimensions of a mat due to the print process and possibly some variance on the length of the teddy bear fur (even on the opposite side of the same mat), but the slight variance will not in any way effect the appearance of your mat, or the enjoyment of your gaming experience. All mats will be at least 6'x4' in size.
Double sided mats give you twice the playing options and take up the same storage space and travel light. They are a fantastic value! If you set up games at your local game store, convention, or club night, this is the way to go. One of our mats will fold up and fit inside your backpack!
We will have some stretch goals along the way!
The goals will be new terrain mat designs! These will be available as printable options once we hit these goals!
The first goal, ARID LANDS (#480) will be unlocked when we reach $2,500.
The second stretch goal will be DRY LANDS (#490), and it will be unlocked when we hit $5,000.
The third stretch goal will be THE LOST TEMPLE (#500), and it will be unlocked when we hit $10,000.
New Europe #510
Jungle Floor #520

NOTE: These are Synthetic Plush battle mats and are NOT MADE OF NEOPRENE (mouse pad material) or PVP. The benefits of a Plush battle mat are that they conform to terrain placed underneath the mat and allow for natural looking rolling hills and landscapes. Plush battle mats also fold up for convenient storage and transportation. Our battle mats are extremely durable as well and washable.

Risks and challenges
The risks are very low. We have been in the terrain mat business for several years, have solid finances and have built a solid reputation for delivering quality products to our customers and providing exceptional customer service.
All of our designs and material are ready to print and we are ready to roll! We just need our backers help to help raise the funds to provide us with the volume needed to make this project a reality!
We have done everything in our power to ensure that we have created a quality product and that it will be produced in a timely manner. There could be some common delays however such as: production delays, shipping delays and international customs delays.
The estimated delivery date is November 2017 (Dec. 2017 for the Masterpiece collection), and we are very confident that we can meet this date, but it is only estimate. Also, due to the logistics of international shipping, backers in different regions of the world may receive their rewards sooner or later than others.
We have done our best to minimize this as much as possible, and if you have any concerns or questions please do not hesitate to contact us via Kickstarter.
