Hey fellow board gamers! We’re here to please you with the most logistical solution in the board game universe for your dearest children, yes, the board games. Whether it be to a casual one game night at a friend’s or to a hoarding trip at GenCon. You can transport them in the most comfortable, protective, and classy way possible. We know the games can be heavy, especially in bundles, so we built this keeping carrying comfort a top priority. Our solution comes in 3 types, crafted with the intent use in mind.
1. The Flatbed
The Flatbed was designed to save your time from unpacking after you get home from a night of conquering your friends in a brain-burning games like Agricola or Terra Mystica. Fused with transparent plastic sides, you can shelf the game along with the bag and still showoff your rows of games in a way a hardcore gamer's shelf should look like. The zipper features scratch-proof padding to prevent the zipper from eating the box when you take the game in and out. Furthermore, the extra padding will provide enhanced protection against pressure when you stack your games. And yes, it is dust-proof and water-resistant so worry not about nurturing the games you plan to resell or those that rarely hit the tables, the Flatbed will cradle it like a newborn baby.
How does it carry? It carries like a briefcase. The thick yet soft padding on the handle will make you feel like you’re carrying a cushion. The initial launch comes in dark grey shade, but we have other colors in store, check out the stretch goals!
2. The Bulwark
The Bulwark features a carrying capacity of 2 heavy duty games like Caverna or 3 narrower games like Dixit. The Bulwark comes with a diagonal strap-on that you can wrap it flat on your back while you carry. So the bag won’t be doing rope jumping while you walk, run, bike, climb, dance...yes you get the point. This also means your games won’t be taking hits from bumping, after all, no games deserve a punch (maybe except for those you allowed to be webbed in the attic). It is padded with extra protection, scratch-proof padding on the zipper and reinforced handled much like the Flatbed.
The Bulwark was created with mobility as the key intent use and is perfect for gamers who like to walk, bike, or use public transportation to a friend's place for a 3-5 hours game session. Or even carry it to office! (play after office hours that is)
3. The Tank
As the name suggests, the Tank has enhanced shell damage and traverse speed, oh wait thats the wrong tank. Our Tank assists you in plowing through game conferences and hoarding as many games as you can without ever realizing that you are carrying games on your back. The bag features 4-5 games carrying capacity in the main compartment and adjustable compartment in the top section of the bag to carrying those small family and party games so that it doesn’t get crushed by the big guys in the main compartment. We understand that hand-carrying a bag with 4-5 games in it requires some advancement in Biceps and Deltoid. Even shoulder straps can put displeasing pressure on your collar bones, unless you are a big fan of perpetual shoulder shrugging dance routine that is. Hence, we believe backpacking is the way to go.
The Tank has reinforced backpack straps and soft padding on the back to sooth the weight. To redistribute weight pressure, a chest and waist strap is provided so the weight is partially transferred to the chest and lower the pressure on the shoulder (a good way to shave off some reps off the bench press from your lifting routine we must say). It also comes with a removable leather handle to convert the strap into a handle for hand carry. The Tank is perfect for a weekend getaway where you can stock 5-7 games, put the bag in your car, and drive off to play 'til you drop. PS: The Tank can fit 4 Flatbeds and or 2 Bulwarks in it for an extra overprotection, perfect for Helicopter parents.
The Flatbed has one specialty in that it comes in 2 different depths 1) A 4” depth to accommodate games such as Caverna, Agricola and 2) A 2.8” depth for all other thinner games. But even if the bag still has space in depth after you put in the game, you can be worry-free of box spilling out when carry as both Flatbed and Bulwark comes with built-in fastening belt All bags were designed based on standard square and rectangle size games, but other variations can be accommodated no problem.
All bags have built-in fastening belts to hold smaller games in place so the box cover would not spill and the boxes won’t smash each other in bag while you carry. For non-standard larger size games or big box games the Tank can house them with ease.
The dark grey hue is certainly classic and everlasting, but we know there are many of you out there who's looking for more pigmentations and guess what, we've got that covered! Here are some of the color variation prototypes for the Flatbed and Bulwark that we can make available if you help us cross our stretch goals so we can meet the minimum requirements to create these sexy beasts.

Selecting Colors, Size, and Initials Post-project
After the project ends, we will be sending out a short survey to confirm three things with you:
1) Size of the Flatbed you want
2) Colors of the Flatbed and/or Bulwark you want
3) The characters/words you want to engrave on the zipperhead
So when you pledge, worry not about these things we will get confirmation from you. Since we are not using pledge manager it is easier for us to confirm via this method.

Risks and challenges
As graduates of MBA, we are well-versed in turning a carefully thought out plan into reality. We've partnered with the best suppliers in Thailand who produces large orders of bags for government authorities and their records of meeting production deadline has been nothing but prime. To top it off, we secured two of the same scale production partners in case there is a long queue or any hiccups occur. Hence our pledge goal is a little higher than other similar projects. But hey, things happen and the topic we are most worried about would be shipping time since that is the aspect that we have the least control over. All other things are within our hands should anything happen.
In tackling risks, what we see as important as reducing it is managing it. We promise regular updates on the going-ons of the product from production to shipping and more importantly we promise active ramifications should anything happen that upsets or worries you backers.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
