“Stunning Fantasy Football pitch on Kickstarter. Take your Fantasy Football with you anywhere / Espectacular Campo de Juego para Fantasy Football en Kickstarter. Desplaza tu Fantasy Football donde quieras” Fanhammer

“A compact, light and robust pitch. An all-round product for gamers. With personalization options, which undoubtedly will make it even more appealing / Es un campo compacto, ligero y resistente. Muy completo. Se ofrecerán opciones de personalización, lo que sin duda lo hará aún más atractivo” TurnoCu4tro

Your perfect match. Anywhere. Anytime.

BlitzZone has been designed to be the perfect match for your Fantasy Football games. It’s a portable pitch conceived to provide the best gaming experience in almost any situation. We know that every coach has different tastes and preferences. Thus, you don’t have to adapt to a single option, instead, BlitzZone adapts to you and your needs. You decide your own unique experience, your very own BlitzZone.

We don’t believe in the “wow” factor. Something that is cool just for a week, it’s not what we are looking for. We want you to love your BlitzZone in a year as much as you do today. That’s why we’ve designed it to make you feel like you are in the game, a fully immersive experience. And the best part is that it can evolve throughout the years. If you want to make it have a fresher look, just change its color, game field, start a new dugouts conversion, add cool accessories… there are endless possibilities!

So, which is our approach? It’s based on three items:

1. Concept

First off, BlitzZone is a high quality pitch, an out-of-the-box concept that allows gamers to simply open it and start playing and a smart all-in-one solution to easily and safely carry two full teams.

2. Personalization

One of the core ideas behind the project was to create a pitch that everybody could enjoy customizing and conversioning without limits. The entry model is designed to make it easy to paint, glue, screw, drill, engrave… Nevertheless, if you wish, we also offer you a wide range of finishes and other options to make it hard to find another pitch like yours. As a brand our main goal is to make gamers happy, from day one and through the years. That’s why –even being confident with what we offer– we’ve decided to introduce a game board system that allows gamers to exchange it whenever they want. This way you can revamp your BlitzZone as many times as you wish.

3. Accessories

Since its inception, we envisioned a pitch that could grow with gamers. The system had to be simple, effective and invisible when not in use. We are very happy with the result and we believe that you are going to love our add-ons!

 

 

 

Once opened, you’ll find a stunning screen-printed exchangeable felt game field. An official-sized grid with everything else integrated in the side trays, which is why it actually takes less room than conventional pitches. The felt surface provides a firm and soft feeling that protects your miniatures during games. The main structure integrates counters, scatter templates and a weather spinning token. Under the game field, two side trays are conveniently located including dugouts, turn markers, reroll counters as well as the miniatures carriage and protection cases. Each case is designed to fit 16 players on 25mm bases. There are also 4 extra large compartments for big guys, special miniatures, dice, tokens and templates.

 

Furthermore, you may need some dice, a ball, templates and other cool stuff, right? Well, among the wide variety of Stretch Goals we’ve included a number of them –“Kekons”– that will be free for every applicable level once unlocked as a big thank you for your help in making BlitzZone a reality!

But there is more. What about teams? Just pick one of the available team pledge levels and thanks to our friends from Willy Miniatures, you will be able to choose among ANY of Willy’s spectacular catalogue*! Simply amazing!

Sturdy

Just holding it in your hands you realize that BlitzZone is a high quality pitch that feels robust and reliable. Even more, due to its steadiness, you can move it in the middle of a game keeping everything in place, your miniatures included. Don’t let anything interrupt your game having to rearrange the whole thing. Just move it as it is and keep playing!

Light

The MDF –Medium-density fibreboard– structure provides an optimum balance between thickness, weight, strength and durability. The clever inner reinforced structure keeps the weight as low as 4kg –8,8 pounds–, less than a regular laptop case or roughly a 6-pack of 33cl/11,2oz beverage bottles.

Durable

We’ve designed BlitzZone to last. With its solid structure, protections, stainless steel assembly screws and polymeric paint –where applicable–, provided that it has been subjected to normal use, you can look forward to many years of Blitz-time!

Non-slip

The corner protectors are slip-resistant. Thus, your matches won’t be spoiled by unintentional hits.

Hands-free

Its comfortable and ergonomic synthetic leather lined handle –available for all models– is not the only way to carry your pitch. We’ve designed a set of straps that can easily let you carry your BlitzZone as a shoulder bag or even a backpack within seconds. When not in use, they are seamlessly integrated and attached to the case.

Designed and handmade in Spain

We’ve developed a manufacturing process based on laser cut designs resulting in over 200 individual pieces that are carefully assembled by hand in our workshop. The semi-industrialized process provides accuracy and quick design adjustments. With the assembly and finish phases you get a quality artisan product. We estimate 30 pitches assembled per month. Being manufacturers ourselves and having initiated deals with providers, we can start production in a very short period of time. As entrepreneurs we strongly believe in supporting and working with local small and medium-size businesses. This approach also has an additional advantage: we are able to have a complete control of the entire process.

Affordable

How is that possible? What’s the secret? Many hours designing the optimum manufacturing process to keep costs at a minimum without compromising quality and looking for the best local providers, telling them and making them part of our story. With our passion it isn’t difficult to fall in love with this amazing project. And of course, thanks to YOUR support, we can negotiate special bulk order pricing. It’s a win-win situation for everyone, especially for YOU!

Your perfect match. Anywhere. Anytime.

BlitzZone is portable, right? So you should be able to take it with you and play anywhere. And when we say anywhere, we mean it! Only a minimum surface for the main structure is required, less than 30cm (11,81in) wide to ensure that the case is still protected by the fabric straps. That’s all! Also, our extendable side trays remain solidly supported by the main structure of the game field. You are guaranteed a stunning gaming experience almost anywhere!!!

BlitzZone adapts to you and your needs. Thus, if you wish you can always completely draw one of the trays and put it on the other side bringing a total width of just under 69cm (27,16in). You decide.

Dimensions in cm / inches:

  • 45,30 x 41,75 / 17,83 x 16,44 (closed)
  • 45,30 x 81,10 / 17,83 x 31,93 (opened)

Side trays extension in cm / inches:

  • 21,70 / 8,54 per side (both attached)
  • 23,60 / 9,29 in total (when both are in the same side)

You can pledge for unpainted and painted versions, with or without teams. If you want more than one of a particular model, just multiply the pledge by the desired number and set that as your pledge amount. Please note that the Early Bird version is limited to one-per-backer.

There are two different paint levels:

  • Paint level 1: outer surface of the BlitzZone painted (Assassin Elf and Dark Lycanthrope)
  • Paint level 2: BlitzZone completely painted, including dugouts, turn markers and reroll counters (Dwarf Juggernaut)

If you pick a team pledge, you’ll be able to choose whichever team you desire from Willy Miniatures’ catalogue. One full team –or two, depending on the pledge level– from day one! No waiting for unlocked levels!

 

 

The info regarding color schemes on painted editions will be collected after the campaign via the pledge manager.

  • Onyx Stadium (Black&Black)
  • Dark Stadium (Black&Red)
  • Azure Stadium (Blue&Black)
  • Scarlet Stadium (Red&Black)
  • Ashen Stadium (Grey&Black)

 

As the campaign progresses, we will be unlocking two kinds of Stretch Goals: “Kekons” –free for all pledge levels– and optional add-ons. So please help us spread the word and stay tuned to see which surprises we have waiting for you!

 

Depending on the option you choose, you may have one or more free cool add-ons to enrich the gaming experience. And of course you can get more! For more add-ons, simply increase your pledge in the “pledge amount" box by the total of the add-ons you want to add anytime during the campaign. Every extra add-on will be available for just 10€!

 

You will receive a laser cut MDF flat-packed design –assembly instructions in the video above. The Dice Tower attaches easily to the pitch. Thus, it doesn't need a support surface and goes with the pitch whenever you move it from one place to another!

 The Customization Set 1 finish depends on the pledge paint level.

  • Unpainted pledges: laser engraved and unpainted
  • Paint level 1: monochrome personalized logo in line with the chosen color scheme. Unpinted laser engraved banners and labels
  • Paint level 2: monochrome personalized logo in line with the chosen color scheme. Painted banners and labels

 

With the Big Guy Special Tokens, you will be able to replace your Big Guy miniatures in those special situations where they hinder others during the match. The six-sided dice include: Prone, Stunned, Bone-Head, Really Stupid and Take Root. On the sixth side you can place your player number so you can differentiate them when playing with more than one Big Guy.

  • Dimensions in mm: 25x25x25
  • painting and assembly included

Kekonomicon is a creative, dedicated and enthusiastic young team made up of two architects –Manuel Ruíz Moreno and José Carlos Montes Ríos– driven by the twofold passion for games and design. But a dream like this needs advice and support. We are so lucky to have many people to whom extent our deepest gratitude:

ªRU-MOR, illustrator, sculptress, miniaturist, graphic designer and much more! She’s been our mentor and a big supporter since the very first steps of this amazing adventure. She’s not just the one behind part of the artwork but even suggested a few cool ideas implemented in the final design.

Ivo Costa, photographer, freelance motion designer and video editor. A professional that is as much talented and passionate as a good friend of ours. Distance and inclement weather hasn’t prevented him from helping us show what BlitzZone has to offer.

Esther Muñoz from Serigrafía Martín y Asociados, S.L. A true discovery. Esther is not simply one of our providers. We met her just a few months ago and she’s now a friend that makes us feel like family. Where others said “impossible”, she listened to us and believed in our dream, putting all her expertise to make it a reality.

Fernando Tejero, Laboratory Technician at the Industrial Design Department, EPS prototype workshop. We’ve had countless concepts and ideas to test. Without his support, the prototype development would have been plainly impossible. Whenever we visit him, we learn something new.

Jorge Ruíz from Willy Miniatures. We are so proud and thrilled to have him as a collaborating partner. Jorge supported us from the moment we introduced one of our prototypes to him. When someone with his background and reputation in this amazing industry does something like that, you know that you are on the right track.

Clint, Antonio Felipe, Susana, Patricia and Fernando. Many friends have supported and encouraged us, but we would like to especially mention these great ones. Always there when you need them, raising spirits.

Our families, who have been always supportive no matter how much time we spent working on such an exciting project.

And of course, a big thank YOU to you all backers for your support and for spreading the word. With your help you will not just make this a reality, but will also help us in more projects to come!!!

Risks and challenges

Even though we have carefully planed every detail to avoid delays, we can never be 100% sure that unforeseen events may occur during the whole process. That being said, we are confident in our estimations as we ourselves are manufacturers and have face-to-face contact with almost all of our providers. The estimated delivery time will begin in September 2016 and will be based on backer order.
