3D Laser Cut Resource Hex set for Settlers of Catan

$11,646

112

Hey, settle down...  on your new 3D island!

Three dimensional resource hexes for your Catan game! Designed for maximum fun and playability, these laser cut wooden pieces will take your game experience to the next dimension, literally!

Help me launch a large production run of these hexes by backing this Kickstarter for rewards such as:

  • DIY kits of all the laser cut wooden pieces for you to paint and put together! Make your own custom board. You could dry brush, stain, spray paint, glue glitter to them or BURN them (CATAN: The Road edition)! It will be almost as fun to make as it is to play!
  • Complete kits colored with water based wood dye and assembled by hand. Shipped to you ready to play! Includes a custom designed wood storage box for your 3D hexes.
  • Expansion hex sets like 5-6 player, Seafarers and more!
  • Deluxe wooden storage boxes that hold your 3D hexes + the original game parts!
  • Stretch goals like sea hexes and score cards!

I've been playing on prototypes of this set for months now, so back with confidence and get ready to settle in 3D!

Risks and challenges

I've already designed and manufactured a few different prototypes, so I don't feel like there's a whole lot of risk. If the demand/number of backers gets larger than anticipated I will go through someone who can handle the larger order or use multiple laser cutting manufacturers.
