The Gamefolio System is an adaptable, intelligent, purpose built system of bags, cases and accessories for tabletop gaming enthusiasts. 

Our system is custom designed to make playing, transporting, storing and protecting your games safe and simple. It works with board games, card games, dice games and various other game types. Our system is perfect for game nights with friends, traveling with your games, gaming conventions or tournaments, as well as taking care of your games while at home.

This is THE essential tabletop game bag solution and its custom, purpose built design allows it to do things other bags can't. There is no other system like it. Your gaming experience will never be the same!

We’ve spent 2 years conceptualizing, designing, redesigning, prototyping and getting this project ready. We are putting the finishing touches on the prototype and are ready for our first production run but need your help to make it a reality and bring the Gamefolio System to life!

Our Gamefolio bags and cases are made of quality materials that are strong, durable, lightweight, flexible and water resistant. We’ve combined that with additional padding and high quality hardware so that the Gamefolio System takes care of your games like a boss.

The Gamefolio System is totally unique. It’s got that special “one of a kind” quality that makes people take notice. It adapts to your games and your gaming lifestyle.

Games are different. They use various combinations of boards, tiles, cards, dice, tokens, coins, and other components.

Additionally, game play situations are different. They can include game nights at home, out with friends, hanging out with your local guild or hitting up gaming conventions and tournaments. They can also include traveling across town or around the globe.

The Gamefolio System has got your back! So Keep Calm and Game On!

 

 

The Vault bag is versatile. Use it with your Game Boxes and our custom Gamefolios. The side pouches have extra room for more games, snacks and whatever else you need while gaming on the go!

The Vault bag can be used in conjunction with Gamefolio cases or directly with your games and boxes. Up to five Gamefolio cases can fit inside the main Vault compartment and 1-3 games can fit inside each Gamefolio case, depending on the size and structure of each game. 

The side compartments can each hold several smaller games or one standard game box, while the main compartment can hold five standard size game boxes without Gamefolio cases. You can also mix it up and carry Gamefolios and game boxes at the same time.

As shown in the renderings on the right, our production model has more open access to the main compartment.

It adapts to your carry style and needs. Carry it with the included shoulder strap, the handles or use it like a backpack.

The side pouches give you plenty of extra room for additional games, snacks, drinks, a laptop, a tablet, pens, paper or anything else you might need while gaming on the go!

 

 

The Vault bag and Gamefolio cases are very protective and water resistant by themselves but the Rain Cover add-on is for those who want to add another layer of protection to the system, making it extremely weather proof.

Gamefolio cases are your tabletop games new best friend. They allow you to instantly customize your game carrying, organization and storage. The custom design maximizes the number of games and gear you carry in a minimized amount of space. With a variety of pockets, pouches and slots, there is a place for everything!

A place for all your gaming gear and all your gaming gear is in its place! Game boards fit inside a special protective pocket within each Gamefolio and hold boards that fold down to fit within dimensions measuring about 13.5" x 11.5" x 1.25".

By carrying, organizing and storing your games with Gamefolios you get the added benefit of protecting your game boxes and the artwork thereon by leaving them safely at home. 

Gamefolio cases keep this from happening to your boxes.
Gamefolio cases keep this from happening to your boxes.

Keep in mind our Vault bag is designed for use with your game boxes directly as well, with ample protection, should you choose to go that route.

Gamefolio cases are easier and lighter to carry compared to lugging around heavier game boxes and inserts. They also keep your game pieces from getting jumbled like a tossed salad or falling all over the place should you accidentally drop, bump or knock over a Gamefolio case or the bag they are in. Game boxes aren’t so forgiving.

Up to five Gamefolios fit inside the main Vault compartment. One, two or three games can fit inside each Gamefolio depending on the size and structure of each game. More Gamefolios equals more options for managing your game collection.

Only need a game or two for gaming on the go? No problem, just grab the Gamefolio case(s) containing the games you want to bring and you’re out the door! (Either with or without the Vault bag.)

Gamefolios are great for organizing and storing your games at home as well as taking them on the go.

To back the Gamefolio System, choose a reward level that contains the specific reward you want in the right side column toward the top of this page. It's that simple! Once you have pledged, sit back and relax... But, only after you've told all your friends. We'll collect your shipping/fulfillment info when this project is complete.

Once you pledge, you're in for a fun ride. Throughout our campaign we'll be updating backers with info and pictures on our latest production units, trips to the manufacturer, game nights with the team and other fun stuff.

Nearly two years ago we (Curtis and Josh) were hanging out with our friends at TMG (Tasty Minstrel Games), no stranger to the tabletop gaming world and Kickstarter.

We, like you, love our games and want to make sure they are taken care of and protected. We want them easy to organize and to transport. We were tired of subpar non-solutions and thought it absurd that our beloved games were stuck being carried around from place to place in big blue shopping bags, or plastic tote bins, continually scuffing, scratching and damaging the beautiful box art along the way. That's not to mention the inevitable tossed salad effect on the game inside.

Seriously, that’s just not a solution. It's settling for something that's subpar. None of us should have to settle for subpar when we are so passionate about tabletop gaming.

As we discussed our frustrations with one another, we decided something needed to be done and a better solution needed to be created. Curtis and Josh set out to do just that. Over the next two years, with continual feedback, testing and design ideas from the TMG team, Curtis and Josh developed the Gamefolio System to make playing, transporting, storing and protecting your games simple and safe.

We are excited to make this dream a reality and for the chance we have to make a small contribution to the amazing world of tabletop gaming that we love so much. We’ve got several additional KeepGear Vault bags, Gamefolio cases and accessories in the works and our Kickstarter backers will always be the first to know about them. Please back this project and join us for an incredible journey. Thanks for your help.

 

We love games and are obsessive about creating systems for organizing, protecting and streamlining the tabletop gaming experience.

Curtis is a serial entrepreneur and inventor. He has built several successful companies. He knows how to efficiently manage resources and money to make a business or product successful, and deliver quality results to customers. He is continually looking at things from a different perspective, always striving to create something new or improve that which exists. One of his favorite games is Settlers of Catan, although he rarely wins.

Josh is a highly skilled graphic designer and artist. The incredible artwork, sketches and graphic renderings of The Vault Gamefolio System, bags and cases throughout our Kickstarter campaign are his work. He’s also got several years of experience working with manufacturers, taking ideas from concept, to design, to a finished product produced in high volume. One of his favorite games is Pandemic.

This dynamic duo is also backed up by a number of successful Kickstarter creators, other mentors, advisors, family, friends and supporters like you.

We understand the critical importance of taking care of our backers. Without you our project would not come to life. We are committed to using our skills, experience, connections, blood, sweat and tears to make sure that your pledges are used wisely to bring The Vault Gamefolio System to life.

All details like shipping information and add-on specifics will be collected via our Pledge Manager after this campaign has ended.

US shipping is shown on each pledge level and collected when you submit your pledge. The Vault bag is $15 shipping. The complete Vault Gamefolio System including the Vault bag with 4 Gamefolios will be $20 shipping. Depending on the additional add-ons you choose there may be other related shipping fees. We work hard to ensure the best pricing and care for your shipments.

We will be looking to do the same in other regions as we get a high enough number of backers in each region to make it viable.
We will be looking to do the same in other regions as we get a high enough number of backers in each region to make it viable.

International shipping will be managed and collected through our pledge manager after the Kickstarter campaign ends. 

Where possible we will be shipping your rewards from within your country or region. This is true for the EU, Australia, Canada, China and the US. If you are outside of those areas we will be shipping to you from a fulfillment center as near you as possible to keep shipping as low as possible.

Below are estimated international shipping costs. If you don’t see your country below then look for a nearby country and your rates will be similar. If you would like more specifics on your country please message us directly so we can take care of you. These are estimates so if there is opportunity for additional savings we will make that happen for each country/region.

Please note that the estimates are for the specific reward listed at the top of each column. Any rewards that you Add-On to your pledge will add to the cost of shipping, but they will be bundled with the overall package so the total shipping will be much less than if the items were to be shipped separately.

Risks and challenges

We’ve got a ton of business success in our DNA and have teamed up with experienced manufacturers to make this dream a reality. They know how to manufacture high-quality goods at high volume. We are confident that we will deliver what we say we will. Should unforeseen issues come up, we will handle them with the utmost transparency and care for you, our backers.

Forecasting Risk
If all goes well during our funding campaign, we'll finish up with a lot of backers and demand. Of course we're trying our hardest to predict our future demand and plan accordingly, but it's not an exact science.

Supply Chain Risk
We have two separate manufacturing supply chains setup to make sure we can take care of our backers and bring our product to life. However, as prepared as we are it's safe to say that there is still some risk here. If a container shipment is delayed for 2 weeks in customs or a batch of new material doesn't pass QA testing, our fulfillment schedule—even if padded—can start to slip.

Acts of God
Hey, stuff happens, but no matter what that stuff may be, we will push through together to make this happen. That’s our commitment to you.
