About

 

 

 

 

So we have acknowledged all of your comments in regards to the armrest / grooved frame and listened! We are unable to change the whole design of the table, so have decided to add on a solid foam armrest made from polyurethane foam. There will be four dark grey rests included with the table at no extra cost to you once the table is funded. The armrests will still allow room for the groove to be used as a card holder and any accessories you buy. Then, it is your choice as and when you choose to use them.

 

 

 

 

 

Tried, tested, trusted.

Geeknson currently have trusted customers and table reviewers in U.S.A, Canada, All across Europe and U.K, South America and Australia.

This is our passion and as you know, when you have a passion, you want to share that passion with as many others as possible, to spread that happiness.

We are known the world over for the fantastic customer service we provide. We are always going that extra mile for our customers and constantly provide accurate cost and delivery estimation.

But don't listen to us. Listen to those who have used and reviewed our tables.

 

Geeknson have been producing bespoke custom built tables for many years but we haven’t before made a table in bulk that will drive down the cost enough to make this table attractive enough to any budget. This Kickstarter will be the only way for this to happen. The funding not being met means the table won’t happen. This is your chance to be part of something special.

The Taylah Board Game table has been made with the future in mind. We know we will still be here to serve you and your table for many years to come. 

With the 'Brexit' situation, there could not be a better time to get more for your money against the British pound. Back now while the dollar is at it's strongest!

We took time gathering feedback from our customers and followers to make sure we could bring you a table for almost any budget, without loosing any of the quality that Geeknson is well known for.

  • Experience in design and manufacturing of furniture 
  • Number 1 European manufacturer
  • Designed to by easy to assemble 
  • Only hardwood ash or pine used. No MDF 
  • Awesome and beautiful looking table for your home

 

 

 

With a vast and worldwide customer base already, Geeknson already knows how to excite and delight customers with gaming tables. We have done for years now and as a family run business with over 20 years experience working with hard wood, we know how to do that to the highest standard.

We have been to many conventions and shows with our furniture and loved the feedback from the huge crowds our tables draw in, but more importantly we have listened to their requests for an affordable table that still ticks all the boxes, without cutting corners or neglecting our high standards.

We have worked hard to make sure we can bring this table to everyone at an amazing price by:

  • Standardizing the table options.
  • Bulk production from our own already established production site.
  • Minimal assembly required. Smaller package means smaller shipping costs for you.
  • Taxes Included.
  • Brexit means more for your money against the pound.

Roll your dice with confidence and never drop a game piece again in the game vault to enhance your gaming experience on the Taylah board game table. It brings you:

  • 3 Layered game surface to choose from -stretch goal.
  • 360* Card groove holder.
  • 360* attachable and detachable accessories to place in or outside the playing area.
  • Divide your game space for a multifunction table.
  • Better board visibility.

 

The Taylah has a luxurious padded game surface ideal for picking up cards and small counters that can sometimes be fiddly.

  • Easy to clean.
  • 3 Types of game surface – stretch goal.
  • Pick up cards easily.
  • Simple to remove.
  • One sided with 3 colours to choose from.
  • Replaceable playing surface.
  • Durable.

With the introduction of Phones, tablets and on demand television, family time is more important than ever. The dining room table needs to be accessible as a multifunction table to accommodate life in the 21 century.

Four hardwood table leaves make up the table top. This allows the table to be divided the way you want. Either expose the whole playing surface by removing all the leaves for bigger games or larger parties. For smaller games or fewer players, just use half the leaves and divide the game space. Half the leaves can mean, a meal for two can be taking place on one side of the table while a thrilling board game can be exploding in to life at the other end of the table. We have solved the issue of dice rolling under the covered part of the table with a strake board that simply blocks the gap. Simple.

Geeknson pride all of their table to be multi-functional. We are a family business and we know accidents do happen. That’s why we created the Keep-Dry SYSTEM meaning your game surface and any games underneath remain protected if liquid is split over the table top.

  • 4 easy to remove leaves that you can slide across the table.
  • Only one person needed to remove or place the leaves on the table.
  • Geeknson already existing KEEP-DRY SYSTEM used to protect game area.
  • Pause games underneath.

 

Reduce the chance of spillages on your table with the cup holders that can simply be removed and attached 360 degrees around the table to follow you! We don’t wish to dictate where you put your cup holder or accessories. Our “experience” has shown the best place for you to put your cup holder, is wherever you want.

The Taylah table was designed to be different. The table "GROOVED FRAME" frame means that you are closer to the game than other tables so leaning across the table will no longer be a struggle. The frame also enables you to attach any of our accessories on either inside or outside of the table. What happens if you want to rest your arms I hear? We know from experience you won't be sat in the same position for three hours. The width of the rest is more than enough to support your arms comfortably, whilst still maintaining how close you are to the table, maximising gameplay.

The Taylah is designed for more accessories to be made for the table long after the Kickstarter campaign has finished.

The table has a card groove/holder 360 degrees round the table, a easy way to place your cards at an angle that keeps others around the table from seeing your hand.

  • Cup holders.
  • Bins.
  • Card groove.
  • Counter holders.
  • More accessories after Kickstarter.
  • Strake board.

 

 

Our plan is to ship all table to local warehouses across the globe. 

US & Canada Shipping will be conducted from a US depot. Approx shipping cost is between $50-$90.

EU shipping options:

  • door to door - 95€
  • collection from the local warehouses - awaiting for the update. 

Shipping costs are estimated and may be adjusted due to SG and added rewards. 

The Taylah has been designed to be a multi-functional table that you control. Use half the table, use quarter of the table? It’s up to you! We offer no dictation as to how you should use your table, we just give you the freedom to be able to use it as many different ways as you like.

Great for 4 players, 6 players or 2 groups of 3 players when the table is divided.

3’ x 5’ gaming area and 1- 1.5’’ rail system around the table.

As a dining table you can enjoy the company of up to 6 people easily.

 

Geeknson have over 20 years’ experience in hard wood furniture manufacturing. As a family run business we have full control over the direction we go in. We are gamers and we game (a lot) on our tables to improve them and come up with new ideas that can enhance the gaming.

We have been to many conventions over the years with our tables and we have listened to the demand for a table for everyone. But not just gamers off the street, we have tables worldwide that are reviewed by professional board game reviewers. Listening to all opinions and feedback from both sets of critics have built us up to the high standard we pride ourselves on today.

We manufacture in Europe only.

No different to flat pack furniture, the Taylah will be simple to assemble and when needed, to dismantle and reassemble elsewhere no problems. A detailed and friendly assembly guide will be included for you to have your base table ready in 15 – 20mins. We will also share out knowledge and experience by giving care instructions for your table.

 

Risks and challenges

The production of our tables using our own production site. The production process is in place, tried, tested and trusted. There is limited risk for us to be able to find a way to meet the Kickstarter campaign at our already existing production site.
The Taylah Board Game table is packed to high standard to ensure safe arrival but also to allow easy shipping.

How do we overcome THEM?

One of the ways we want to show our confidence is to offer a 4 month warranty on the tables.
We also have plans for new accessories to be added as a future option for your table, long after the campaign comes to an end.
- Excellent knowledge.
- Worldwide shipping experience and reliable partners.
- Own experienced craftsman checking every stage of production.
- High quality and standards in hardwood furniture manufacturing.
- Quality guaranteed.
- Meeting deadlines.
- Designed with future development in mind.
