About

Hyper Vyper Games mats are unofficial game mats constructed from high quality non-slip neoprene to protect your tabletop from bumps and scratches, roll your dice on a softer, quieter surface, protect your cards from scratches and chipping and enhance your game time with eye catching art work that compliments the overall gaming experience.

All Hyper Vyper Games game mats are 3mm thick neoprene rubber, thicker than a lot of other mats on the market, yet thin enough to roll up easily and not too heavy when carrying them around. They each have a smooth soft polyester fabric affixed to the top surface, stitched edges to protect high traffic areas and high quality art printed at 300dpi

We've produced and tested a number of different prototypes with varying thickness, inks, print quality and stitching styles and even different rubbers and we're confident that you'll agree our mats are premium quality.   

*** New Shipping Partner sourced for AUS, USA and Canada shipping*** 

See shipping section for details  

The San Vitale

Named as a tribute to the Basilica of San Vitale in Ravenna, Italy which houses some of the worlds finest Byzantine mosaics. 

The San Vitale is compatible with AZUL,  AZUL: Stained Glass of Sintra and any games played around a central repository.  

The cluster of circles in the centre of the mat provides  9 clearly defined areas to place out the tiles, and the centre area to group tiles as selections are made throughout the game. For 3 or 2 player games, the number of small circles required can be reduced by placing cards/markers on top of the circles not in use.

WE ARE NOW OFFERING BOTH Design A (below left) AND Design B (below right) as options when you back a 90cm x 90cm playmat.

Choose the design that works best for you!!

 The Journey

"Life is a journey, and not a destination"  - Lynn H. Hough

The purpose of our fantasy themed game mat is to immerse you in the fantasy realm.  Our aim was to capture the feeling of the traveler setting out into the unknown, leaving the comfort and safety of home and heading out to face the open world and its maleficent denizens.

We wanted to capture the transition of the journey from good to evil and we think we've done that with this beautiful design, we hope you like it as much as we do.

 The Wild Wild Wasteland

I'm your huckleberry

Inspired by Flick'em Up, The Wild Wild Wasteland game mat provides you with a soft smooth surface on which you can send bullets flying and outlaws tumbling with ease.

As a family, we really enjoy Flick'em Up but we always struggled to find a surface that worked well.  Either it was too small (coffee  table) or too slippery (Glass top table) or we had to use a tablecloth to protect the dining table surface (this resulted in any number of problems!)

The Wild Wild Wasteland game mat creates an area where you can play on any tabletop without fear of damaging it's surface and yet still get a soft smooth surface that components slide around on nicely.

But wait, there's more...... if you're into war or miniatures gaming this game mat also works well to create that post apocalyptic road warrior type settings for your game.

The Vyper

Premium branded universal game mat is for occasions where you just need a great place to play any game you want.

We've used a viper scale pattern in the background to break up the plain colour fill and chosen the green as a nod to the traditional felt table tops used for card games in saloons and casinos 

 Products below are still in design stages 

The Sentinel

Designed for the serious board gamer, The Sentinel is an XL game mat that will accommodate just about any game you want to get to the table.

At 120cm (47") x 90cm (35") The Sentinel certainly lives up to it's name.

The dark theme colour scheme was chosen to provide good contrast with just about any board or card game that you desire and was a popular choice in the feedback we received from our market research.

Products below are still in design stages 


No Pledge Manager

There will be no pledge manager after the campaign, so you'll need to pledge for everything you want now, before the campaign ends. 

If the following targets are reached, then these additional designs will be unlocked and made available as selections in the survey after the Kickstarter campaign giving backers more designs to choose from.   

Shipping

*** New Shipping Partner sourced for AUS, USA and Canada shipping***

We've been working to reduce shipping costs since the campaign launch and we've managed to do so.  Unfortunately, we're only able to do so for AU and North America.

New pledge options have been added with the updated shipping costs

Backers outside of Australia are subject to their own country's duties and taxes

Given the size and dimensions of the packages, the postage service puts a premium on our shipments and pushes the cost up. As a result we've discounted the cost price to try and counter balance the cost of shipping and stay competitive with our price overall.

As a way to reduce shipping costs, it may be more effective to minimize shipping per item by organizing a group pledge and sharing the costs of shipping.

If there is enough backer interest from one country or region we may be able to offer discounted shipping through a fulfillment partner.  Let us know if this option would interest you. 

* USD - All USD prices are estimates only, and subject to change depending on exchange rates

We adhere to all sanctions under the US Treasury Department (OFAC) sanctions program.

Risks and challenges

Whilst we do not expect any issues, we do accept that there are often unforeseen challenges and risks that are to be expected during the delivery of any project. We have tried our best to mitigate any of these unforeseeable issues and have set a realistic delivery time frame and will do our best to ensure we meet that goal.
We have done extensive testing and reviewed a number of different samples, materials, print and stitch styles and techniques and we are confident with the product we will be producing. If we reach our funding goal we are ready to begin production almost as soon as the funds have been cleared.
