Enhance your Gloomhaven experience with individual player mats made from Quiver Gaming Gear's proprietary gaming mat material. The best board game and game mat of all time come together to elevate your game with better organization, card handling, and an overall luxurious feel and aesthetic.
The mat creates a well organized play area without adding to the footprint of the game.
The player mat comes with designated and highlighted areas for your player board, active cards, loot, conditions, items, character tokens, discarded and lost action cards, modifier cards, consumed items, and an additional option to track health and experience to save some table space.
The player mat is 32cm x 32cm (12.75" square)* and will include tracking markers for health and experience (component of marker still to be determined). The mats will be available in this campaign as a two and four pack.
*Final dimensions will be within 1/4" margin of this size. Due to bleed area and production cutting, some edges may have more/less of the image pictured. See final printed mat with components for example.
Quiver's gaming mat material is a high quality, top of the line gaming suede, mounted to high density foam with a rubber backing, that can be dye sublimated to display the highest detailed imagery.
This mat has all the features you would find on a professional gaming table. To read more about our material, check out our most recent Kickstarter page here.
Our mats are proudly made in the USA with the highest quality materials and craftsmanship, from start to finish. Producing our mats domestically gives us close proximity to quality control and will expedite manufacturing and order fulfillment.
*Mats include markers for tracking experience and health
Quiver Gaming Gear's mat material is expensive to manufacture, and we need a large order to be able to produce the material. Running a Kickstarter project helps us identify how much interest there is in these mats so we do not produce too many or not enough.
The availability of these mats post Kickstarter is unknown. Any extra will most likely be sold direct and will be in limited quantity for a higher price. For those in Europe, Australia, and Canada, it would mean higher shipping costs and taxes. Backing now ensures you will get this product, get it first and early, and for the best price.
Quiver Gaming Gear is a small, family side business that has been run completely without debt, project to project, from the beginning. Supporting this campaign means a great deal to our family, and we are honored to be able to utilize our product for a game such as Gloomhaven and working with Isaac to produce this.
We are very excited for everyone to use these mats to make a helpful and even more immersive Gloomhaven experience!
About Quiver Gaming Gear:
Quiver Gaming Gear was established in 2014 by Kevin Kerkhof (gamer, chef, and barista) with a mission to produce a large size tabletop gaming mat that could convert any table to a better gaming surface. This work and journey led to the highest quality gaming mat ever produced with our second generation mats, that create a professional gaming table surface instantly for a fraction of the cost. We have successfully completed and fulfilled two Kickstarter campaigns, and are honored to be able to utilize our material for Gloomhaven. For more information you can look at our website here, prior project pages, or contact us directly if you have any questions.
Kevin recently moved with his family of seven to Greenfield, Indiana to pursue a new endeavor that will be announced soon. He loves a good heavy Euro game, playing games with his family, painting minis, and an epic 12 player game of Zombicide.
About Cephalofair Games:
Isaac Childres loves board games. He was going to be a physicist (got his PhD and everything), but then decided it would be more fun to design and publish board games for a living. He hasn’t regretted that decision yet.
Isaac is the one-man driving force behind Cephalofair Games. He started the company back in 2014 to self-publish his first game, Forge War, and has been doing all the design, development, writing, art direction, promotion, publishing, and fulfillment for his games ever since. He does have outside help for art, graphic design, editing, and community management.
Isaac’s “magnum opus,” Gloomhaven was Cephalofair Games’ second title, published in early 2017. He could not be happier with the reception it is receiving and is now working on a small expansion, Forgotten Circles, with Marcel Cwerteschka, and an unnamed larger expansion (exciting!). He also published another game in the Gloomhaven universe, Founders of Gloomhaven, a heavy city-building and logistics Euro that will soon be in stores.
He is generally a fan of heavier Euro board games like Terra Mystica and Agricola, though he does have a soft spot for dungeon crawlers and RPGs. You can read all about his unhealthy love of board gaming on his website here.
Isaac lives in Lafayette, Indiana, with his wife Kristyn and his dog Millie.
About Krzysztof "RabidBlackDog" Bieniawski, mat designer:
An illustrator and graphic designer based in Warsaw suburbs, Poland. A man of too many passions (ranging from art through combat sports, acting. music, animals to board games) and too little time. Avid gamer and hobbyist, always ready to make the best of his favorite games. Often the only one to laugh at his jokes.
You can find more of Krzysztof's work here.
When you pledge for a specific mat, it will automatically calculate shipping to your country and add it to the pledge amount.
Our mats will be shipped from within the USA, Canada, Australia, and the EU to reduce shipping charges, custom fees, and VAT taxes to backers in these areas. Since our mats are manufactured in the USA, they will be shipped in bulk to fulfillment centers, and then fulfilled.
Quartermaster Logistics (USA), Snakes & Lattes (Canada), Aetherworks (AU), and Happyshops (EU) will be our fulfillment partners for this project.
If you live outside of the USA, Canada, Australia, and the EU, additional import fees and taxes may apply upon receipt. Check with your local postal provider for rates. Your orders will be shipped directly from Quiver HQ or Quartermaster Logistics in the USA.
International shipping from the USA will be sent either USPS First Class or USPS Priority International.
Add ons and Stretch Goals
Due to the very specific focus for this project, there are no add-ons or stretch goals planned. This will help move the project along faster and get your mats to you as early as possible.
If you are looking to order more than 4 mats, we will process those requests separately after the campaign to ensure the most accurate shipping charge.
For those requesting Quiver Gaming Gear's full-size tabletop game mats, we hope to have an opportunity after this campaign to order.
Kickstarter is not a store and relies on backers like you to make a product like this a reality. Refunds can be requested for the full amount up to 14 days after the campaign ends. After 14 days and before production begins, only 90% of what was pledged can be refunded. Once production begins, there are no refunds unless the product cannot be delivered at all. If you do not accept these terms, please do not pledge to back this project.
Risks and challenges
This is our third Kickstarter project, and we have successfully delivered our mats to well over 1000 individuals prior to this campaign, all over the world. We are familiar with logistics, communication, and expectations as a backer and have backed over 100 projects personally. We are even better prepared for this project in each area, and look forward to delivering an exceptional experience through your partnership in this campaign.
While we do not anticipate any issues, there are risks and challenges that may occur along the way. Production could encounter equipment, material, and labor issues, delaying the project. Shipping can experience issues as well. Acts of God are always a possibility.
We have looked at scenarios for both small and large scale production, and have everything in place to ensure this project's success at any level. We are confident and prepared to deliver the Gloomhaven Player Mat to you.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
