If this project makes any amount over the $20,000 mark, I plan on using most all of the money to cut down on international shipping rates for you guys. Just a way to show my appreciation for your support. I will also try to pay for most domestic shipping as well. 

When my group of friends and I play Table-Top RPG’s, we like to really get immersed into our game. When we play games like Dungeons and Dragons, we want to have the best gaming experience possible. One day, we decided, wouldn’t it be great if we could have an amazing board to play on, one that could compliment Role Playing Games like Dungeons and Dragons? That’s when we got the idea to make the Caman board. Off of that board spawned ideas for the Briefcase board. Then after that, here we are, asking your help to make this dream come true. We need YOUR help Kickstarter.

A Tip: Since these boards are very much for a gaming group, if you see a board that you like, split the cost with your friends :)

The Caman board is our first board that provides players to have a solid playing surface to play their miniatures RPG games. This is the feature board that inspired our Briefcase Boards and is a key element in them.
Features: Wooden frame surrounding a plexiglass grid game map that is hand painted. There are two different types of grid systems on this board: Square and Hex. The square grid has bold lines outlining the 1” squares and thin lines outlining smaller ¼” squares. There is a small wooden wall that is a part of the frame that surrounds the board that keeps your dice from falling out as well as providing stability.

Versions: Square grid or Hex grid 

Size of the Board: 23” x 19” x 1”

Size of Playing Surface: 20” x 16”

The Briefcase Board is a board that is meant for a traveling RPG experience. With this board you can fold it up into a briefcase fashion, and take it with you when you travel and play.

Features: Two Caman boards that can fold down to have one playing surface that is the equivalent of two Caman boards side by side. This board only features the 1” square grid system. It also comes with handles and briefcase locks to keep your board secure when traveling.

Size of the Board: 33” x 21” x 1” when folded out
Size of Playing Surface: 20” x 32”

This board is similar to the Briefcase Board V1 except that it has two separate Caman boards that allow for multi-story play. For instance now you can have two separate playing surfaces to show different stories to a building, or two different areas of the game, or even play two different games at one time.
Features: This board has 4 slide-out drawers that can hold things like paper, pencils, dice, markers, and other things. It also has a middle “table” part that can be used for many things like holding your miniatures and other items. We have yet to discover the full potential for this part. It will also include metallic handles to pull out the drawers and a locking mechanism to keep them from sliding when transporting. It also has briefcase style locks to lock it into place when traveling.

Size of the Board: 43” x 23” x 2.25” when folded out
Size of Playing Surface: (x2) 20” x 16”

This board takes the V2 and lets you slide the two Caman boards together for one solid playing surface.
Features: This board features everything that the V2 has but with the sliding ability of the boards through a wooden rail system.

Also, though this has not been tested due to lack of funding, even though Im almost 100% positive it can do this, with one side of plexiglass exposed, it may be possible to actually slide a map under the plexiglass on the exposed side in order to edit pre-made encounter maps. Simply slide one side back, put the sheet under the glass, and slide the board back together. This will allow for Game Masters to pre-edit maps before games. With two more months allocated to research for this board than the rest, the full potential of this board will be discovered and you will be updated accordingly. 

Versions: Square grid or Hex grid

Size of the Board: 43” x 23” x 2.25” when folded out
Size of Playing Surface: 20” x 32”

Our boards are made mostly of wood with a few metal elements like screws and locking devices. The grids are painted onto the wood to give it a great look compared to printing it on paper. We have tested the size of the boards and think that the sizes that they are now are the perfect size for transportation and play. Below is an example of how the Briefcase style boards fold together.

The thing that is great about these boards is that the playing surface is really easy to clean and does not crease up. Because the surface is made of plexiglass, it’s as easy as wiping off your dry erase marker marks with a paper towel.

Our goal is to create these boards out of a wooden mold in order to make a high quality board that does not have to use a bunch of screws to hold it together like our prototype. A mold will allow easy production and a more professionally made product. Updates on this will be given provided we make the funding goal.

Below is a real-life representation of one of our prototypes of the Briefcase Board V2. Since this board was just a prototype, it is missing handles and the ¼” grid within the 1” grid.

Of course most of the money will go into the actual creation of the boards themselves. But the remainder will go into creating a website, hiring a manufacture in order to get everyone the same quality of product, and research and development on how to improve our boards for you guys. 

If you order either the Briefcase Board V2 or V3 you will now receive two small wooden stoppers to place on either side of the "table" part of the board in the middle. This will let you have a small area to roll your dice so you don't just have to use the drawers. Enjoy! :) 

We are letting you order a customized Dungeons and Dragons table. The table is only in the earliest of prototype stages, but if you order one, we will PERSONALLY work with you to help it fit your Table Top RPG needs. Here is a Google Sketch-up Prototype of a design I have of it so far.

The middle part spins so that everyone can reach any part of the game map.

What I need from YOU guys is to help me with my campaign to get the word out. Lets do this together. Please tell all your friends that might be interested in this board about it. We would REALLY appreciate it! You guys have the potential to spread the word so fast, and I can only do so much. With your help, we'll spread the word like wildfire to all who play Table-Top RPG games. You cant imagine the appreciation we would have. Seriously. Thank you.

Spread the love. Spread the word.

FAQ

  • That is a funny question. In the beginning, yes it was, but as we experimented, we discovered that you could actually do other things like play chess and checkers on the boards. We even experimented with a fun game of battleship, using two boards. They fold up just like a battleship game does!

    This makes for interesting possibilities. One funny thing we found using the Caman board was that is was great for drawing dry erase 2-D prototypes of different products and product ideas! Using the boards for other things than gaming is encouraged!

    Last updated:
  • Not at all. We plan on using the money we get from Kickstarter to make our own Role Playing Game as well as interesting Role Playing Accessories. Our goal is to make enough money from these boards so we don't have to put up any more of our ideas on Kickstarter to raise money.

    After the costs of things such as a website and other things are payed for, about 95% of the money will go straight into Research and Development. The remaining 5% or so will go into things for surviving. Like food. Yum.
