When you want to game, you want to game. The Essentials Case keeps your gear together, organized, and easily accessible. Specific compartments have been designed for your dice, pencils, and miniatures.

 MacWolf Productions has partnered with some amazing artists to bring you a series of beautiful engraving options.  We are proud to present these Premiere Engravings by Stan Yan, Zak Hennessey, Steven Pulawa, and Janet Macklin.  Below you will find some of the options that will be available to you.  We will be adding more options as the Kickstarter progresses and backers will be able to choose their favorite at the end of the Kickstarter.  

 

 

There is more to come!

Custom Engraving

In addition to the Premiere engravings offered by our partner artists, we are offering custom engravings.  If you select a custom engraving, we will work with you after the campaign ends to bring your personal design choice to your Essentials Case. 

All shipping is included in the pledge costs.  Currently we are only shipping domestically within the United States.  

 What is a Kickstarter without a few nifty stretch goals?  When it comes to crowd funding:  You are the most important part of our team.  Please share our campaign, flood the internet with our videos and images, and help us bring our Essentials Case to the gaming world!   

-  35k will unlock a variety of color options for the acrylic:

 - 40k will unlock the Coffin Box upgrade.  Backers will have the option of upgrading to our Coffin shaped box after the Kickstarter funds:

We will be adding more stretch goals as we go!

Risks and challenges

With every project there are risks and challenges to overcome. For our project we have spent many hours looking for potential issues and opportunities to resolve them.

Resources: We have sourced our materials locally and have negotiated with several vendors to make sure we can get the needed materials for our Essentials Cases on time and in sufficient number to meet our customer's needs.

Laser Cutter: The primary goal of this Kickstarter is to raise enough capital to purchase a new laser cutter. We have made arrangements to make sure that once our project fully funds, we will be able to get the cutter delivered and installed immediately to begin production. We have also acquired access to a backup cutter that will allow us to begin our production, even before our new cutter ships.

Communication: This is your project as much as it is ours. No matter what challenges we face, our backers will be right in the loop with us.

Thank you again for your support!
