About

Hello, I'm Joe Collier.  

I want to thank you for taking the time to check out my Kickstarter project. I started Midgarth Games in February, 2012, and started doing business in July, 2013.  Combining my love of table top role-playing games and general geekery with my passion for digital design, I created Battlegridz.  

Why did I start this company? 

Feeling fed up with the static designs of the current gaming grids and the utter chaos of tiles, I wanted to add something to the game that I believed could make it better. 

Why do you need Battlegridz? 

If you're like me, you have noticed a lack of creative options when it comes to gaming grids.  There are some respectable companies that sell decent products, but they leave much to the imagination.  Battlegridz offer a highly versatile gaming experience with customization, and they are free of the unwieldiness of tiles. Battlegridz store easily and conveniently, are resistant to curling and can last for years.  I guarantee that you will find them to be a welcome addition to your gaming sessions. 

What makes Battlegridz different from other gaming grids? 

1. Battlegridz are available in more designs than other companies have to offer, and more will be available very soon. 

2. Battlegridz are available in two sizes: the standard 24" x 36" and the compact 18" x 24".  We're also considering getting into 36" x 36" hex maps in the future. 

3. Battlegridz use thicker paper, which makes them more durable and resistant to raveling. 

4. Like other grids on the market, Battlegridz use thermal lamination, which allows for play-area customization with dry erase markers. 

5. Battlegridz are shipped in kraft mailing tubes, which is convenient not only as a shipping medium, but also as a storage device. 

You say there be new designs in the future? 

Absolutely!  Currently on the docket, I am planning a release this summer of several new designs, including: swamplands, open ocean, coast and more.  Check back often for more information. 

In addition to more fantasy settings.  I currently offer space grids on my website and my ebay store.  There's only one design at the moment, but I plan to offer a lot more in the coming months. 

What other products will be offered in the future? 

I am currently developing prototypes for an exciting new product.  An accessory that is built on an old idea, but with an awesome new spin. This product will be fully usable with Battlegridz, and I expect it to be available as early as this spring.  More details will follow VERY SOON. 

Enough about the product line, check out the rewards! 

Rewards are intended to appeal to the nerd and the non-nerd, alike. From Battlegridz and shirts to fine pewter jewelry and cold cast tin and bronze art as well as hand-crafted leather items, we have prizes to catch the interest of all intrigued investors. Check them out!
