The object of the Encounter Bricks Construction System Kickstarter campaign is to raise $64,000 in order to produce a new Deluxe Set of Encounter Bricks. The Encounter Bricks Construction System is a paint-able, 25mm scale, 3-dimensional, injection molded, construction system for tabletop strategy and role-play games. The system is designed to be abstract and simplistic, providing a foundation on which to implement creative terrain accessories made from common household items available to anyone (e.g. toothpick-torches, sushi-grass, and [our personal favorite] tequila-cork-trees). Encounter Bricks are a blank canvas limited only by your imagination (and whatever junk happens to be lying around your house).
This new set would contain more precise bricks injected from high-quality thermoplastic, a greater quantity of bricks, and the addition of 1x4 and 2x4 brick configurations (as repeatedly requested by our fans), and would allow us to subsequently make Encounter Bricks affordable to the most frugal game masters world-round.
The New Deluxe Set Includes - 40 Bricks: (4) 1x1's, (4) 1x2's, (4) 1x3's, (4) 1x4's, (8) 2x2's, (8) 2x3's, and (8) 2x4's.
We would do this by milling a set of cold steel dies to be used in a state-of-the-art, hot-runner, injection molding process at Epsilon Industries in Dallas, Texas.
In the event we exceed our funding goal, our first stretch goals include doors and a series of 1x1 and 1x2 vertical walls. Here's a sneak peak at the prototype:
Encounter Elements is more than just another company pushing a product; EE is a group of gaming enthusiasts who refuse to accept the limitations and challenges present in many tabletop games. We're committed to finding creative solutions and alternatives to improve your gaming experience. As gamers ourselves, we understand the desires, the challenges, (the slim budgets), etc. of our customers. Our products represent the actual solutions to the actual recurring problems experienced in our game sessions and it's our hope to continue to develop this solution and to make it available to others who are unsatisfied with the other expensive and rigid alternatives.

Risks and challenges
There is always the potential for production delays with manufacturers, but our manufacture conducts itself with the utmost professionalism and will work to machine our dies accurately and quickly.
The physical fulfillment (packaging and shipping) of incentives is a challenge proportionate to the success of the campaign, and one we will meet with help from the members of our party; even that rogue who's just here for the treasure.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
