About


Finally, a tabletop game counter that anyone can use

I've designed iziCOUNT to be the first led tabletop game counter yet.

There are some great tokens out there - but none as smart and simple as iziCOUNT.  This all-in-one counter is ready to use.  Other tokens will not only be small, hard to read, they will also easy to loose and only the player can see his score. This is the counter a kid could use, but also anyone who has problems to see close up. We assemble the electronics, we assemble the hardware, we design the firmware... you just have to use it! 

It comes in the form of a small case, with a luminous display on the front panel based on coloured LEDs. 3 buttons allow you to interact with iziCOUNT.

We need your support to scale production

Anyone can research and build one of electronic device, but it WILL be time consuming, complex, confusing, difficult for beginners and expensive.  We have brought game counter down to the beginner level and a better price point simultaneously.  How?!  Well, that's where you come in.  The only way to produce assembled, cutting edge electronics is to order a lot of them.  The same logic applies to all the parts.  We need your support to scale production.

The goal: a counter in every home, on every tabletop game box

This kickstarter will do more than fund a single project.  This project will launch a business in pursuit of the dream of "a counter in every home".  We have reduced the complexity of these counter, but will soon focus solely on pushing the price of these counter to the absolute lowest sustainable retail price.  

Please, help us change the world of tabletop games. Every little bit helps.  

Thank you for your support!

iziCOUNT is designed to be easy to use, visible in all circumstances and reliable, to enhance your play experience. Your score will no longer be lost, due to the use of tokens, leaves, matches, dice, tokens... Your score will be visible to all participants, whether they are ready or far away, next to or in front of you.

iziCOUNT was born from the observation that many games require a points management, and that this management is not made different objects (card, sheet, dice, pawns...) the problem is that often they are: small, little visible, get lost, fall, are pushed. The score is thus lost or modified, and the serenity of the game disrupted. iziCOUNT is there to overcome these problems by providing a simple solution.

The first application is the use as a hit points marker in W40K style board games. Indeed, these games last several hours and require the management of several point counters. Most often dice are used and placed next to the figurines, but they roll or are pushed, their reading is not easy and changing a score requires a certain habit. iziCOUNT was tested during the French tournament "the very big FAT of WAR" 2019, by teams of experienced players. Everyone recognized the usefulness and simplicity of iziCOUNT. It is following these tests that this Kickstarter project was born.

Of course, there are many uses for iziCOUNT and you will be free to use it with all your games, card games, role-playing games, wargames, board games... and why not in everyday life.

Choice of design: 

  • no numbered display, but luminous points visible and clear, from near and far and in any direction.
  • compact, 50mm x 30mm and 10mm thick, to take it anywhere and ensure good ergonomics.
  • autonomy and upgradeable, these electronic components and its battery ensure an autonomy of 10 to 20 hours depending on the number of LEDs lit and their colors. Use of a standard battery, easy to find on the market at a reduced price.

Quality design and quality parts

iziCOUNT is my original design.  This new game counter incorporates some of the best practices out there.  We use the latest electronics and firmware, latest smallest RGB led, and it works for hours with is low energy profile and a strong coin cell.

Risks and challenges

Budget:
this Kickstarter project is justified by the need to invest in production tools (such as plastic injection moulds). These tools have high costs and this blocks most new product projects. The final cost of these tools may be higher than the project estimates and may require additional funding.

Deadline:
Depending on the quantities to be produced and shipped, deliveries may be postponed by several months. iziCOUNT undertakes to manage the deadline to the best of its ability and to keep you regularly informed in the event of any delays.
Quantity:
Depending on the quantities to be produced and shipped, the logistics will have to be adapted, and may require additional funding. In this case iziCOUNT implement conventional financing means to mitigate this risk.
