Massif Displays are made with 2.0 mm (1170 gr) high-quality grey-board, also known as Davey board, book binders board, game board). In addition to that, they'll have 100 grs MC (machine coated) paper on both sides. (HINT: we'd like to use linen paper if we can get the funding- stretch goal anyone?)
While many companies that say 2 mm actually use a grey-board closer to 1.6 mm, this is an actual 2.0 mm / 1170 gr grey-board (somewhere right between 1.9 and 2.0). The prototypes we got at the factory measured 2.0.Last updated:
Basically, in order to offer free shipping, and make manufacturing and fulfillment logistics easier, I had to organize sets of display stands. So...
There are 4 types of sets:
1 small set = 8 small stands
1 medium set = 2 medium stands
1 large set = 1 large stands
1 mixed set = 1 medium and 4 small standsLast updated:
After a successful campaign, we will send out a survey asking you which types of Massif Display sets you would like.
Each type of set has different amounts and sizes of stands. See the question "What is a set" above.Last updated:

I've put a 2ft (60cm) tall box weighing 17 lbs (8 kg) on a large display stand for several hours, and nothing happened. The stand was not bent or damaged when I took the box off. I'll continue the stress testing experiments and keep you guys posted!Last updated:
The quick answer is, so that more people can notice your game.
The long answer, these stands allow you to position your games and components in a way that lets more people see them as they walk by your play testing or game booth table.
They take up less room, making it easier for you to keep your space looking clean, nice, and professional. Now, both the people standing at your booth, AND the people walking by can see your games, as opposed to one or the other. The stands also work great when you are doing photo shoots or videos for your games.
You can also sell or give these stands to customers with your branding on them. This means that every time someone takes their game off the stand, they'll see your branding, and your business will stay top of mind.
Finally, these stands are compact and travel friendly. They can fit in your suitcase, laptop bag, or even most board games. This saves you time and money when traveling to and setting up for conventions.Last updated:
Great question! Here are some of our favorite ways to use these stands for gaming activities.
1. Decorate your game room. Use the stands to show off your favorite collectible games on your shelves and ledges.
2. Spice up your gaming party. Use these to give your friends subtle hints about which games you want to play tonight. And then use them to enjoy the game box artwork.
3. Use the small displays to hold up turn guide cards at a nice angle.
4. Heard of a game called Codes Names? These stands work much better for holding the spy masters code card!
5. Use them to hold the community cards everyone must see during a game.
6. Mark tables with the games your meetup group is playing tonight.
7. Use the large display to hold your hand of cards and keep them secret.
8. Use them to display books in your living room, and pretend like you are an avid reader. (Yea right, I know you're busy playing games!)Last updated:
Here are a couple ways that Massif Displays can help your business:
-- Better display your most popular games in an eye catching position as customers enter your store.
-- Decorate the tops of your shelves and any other flat spaces with games.
-- Use the stands to mark tables that have been reserved by certain players for a game.
-- Make awesome weekly open-box previews by showing the front and back of the boxes, the game rules, cards, and components, while taking up less space then previously required.
-- Add your branding to the displays and sell/give them to customers to keep your business top of mind.
-- Use the stands in your booths at local cons and events to really make your games stands out and get noticed.Last updated:
