The Game Canopy Deep Space™

$92,222

576

It all started with a simple idea, “I need a real board game bag!” If you cringe with us when you picture wet corners, jumbled contents, and crushed box tops, then you know why we made the Game Canopy System. We have been working together for six years and we love a creative challenge. The Game Canopy System is the culmination of what we have learned and what we are passionate about. The First. The Best. The Game Canopy System continues to carry your games and your adventures to forge great Game Nights!  

Remember all those times trying to find a bag big enough to carry the oversized and heavy games from your collection, only to become so frustrated that you ultimately left them home? Introducing our newest member of the Game Canopy System – The Deep Space! Now you can carry all those Big Box games and anniversary editions to your game nights. We designed this bag with enough space to pack an entire week's worth of games so you don’t have to play Rock Paper Wizard to decide which games have to be left behind!

KICKSTARTER EXCLUSIVE COLOR
KICKSTARTER EXCLUSIVE COLOR

All the bags in the Game Canopy System are available in this campaign, along with its newest member, The Deep Space!

Available for the first time internationally, since our last Kickstarter, pledgers will now be able to take their game nights on the go, at a discounted rate from retail! 

The Game Canopy System was designed to transport your games safely, and in style. Whether you’re looking to have a small game night, or you’re looking to spend a weekend with your friends, this is the perfect way for you to keep your new, rare, and favorite games coming to the table.  Do you have a group that keeps you on your toes with spur of the moment game nights?  Does your gaming group enjoy marathon board gaming parties? Have you and your friends delved deep enough, into your favorite game, that you need to bring all of its expansions to game night? The Game Canopy System has an option for you.


We have been working with The Dice Tower as their exclusive transportation solution, and are thrilled to offer this co-branded design, for the GC Deep Space and the Game Canopy, in this Kickstarter! Every pledge that chooses The Dice Tower Bag option, in the BackerKit survey, will have a portion of the money you’ve pledged go to The Dice Tower. Pledge now, and support Tom Vasel and his team! 

This year we’re introducing the 2019 Kickstarter exclusive “Hero” color. This is a great color combo that is sure to wow everyone at game night! Available for all the Game Canopy System bags, be sure to get a set before they’re gone with the end of this Kickstarter!

Colors can be selected, in BackerKit, after the Kickstarter ends and the survey has been sent.

The Charcoal Base, with Mandarin Trim, is available for all the bags in the Game Canopy System, and we have many more colors waiting to be unlocked, in our stretch goals (check out the stretch goals section to see all these other great colors.) Pledge today, tell a friend, and help us unlock all these great options!

Two Internal Pleated Pockets

 Shoulder Strap Included With Every Bag

Use the D-rings to attach your keys, water bottle, the Game Canopy System accessories (such as the shoulder strap and Saddlebag), luggage tags, bungee straps for securing to a standard sized wheeled cart and so much more!

Side handles make it easy to lift and are perfect for securing to a standard sized wheeled cart!

 Padded Velcro handles provide comfort and support while on the go!

Side pockets are perfect for storing small games, tablets and cell phones!


Introducing a New Engineered Solution for Wheeled Carts!

We love our community of supporters and we listened to your suggestions from our last Kickstarter. One of the requests we spent time engineering a solution for is the ability of our Game Canopy System to use a standard wheeled cart to pack up those monsters such as Gloomhaven, Caverna, Mechs vs. Minions, Galaxy Trucker Anniversary Edition, and so much more! No longer do you have to break your back to be the highlight of those epic Game Nights! While it is not necessary to have, these carts are simply an option for those that want one.  See our Update #7 -  https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/level3b/the-game-canopy-deep-spacetm/posts/2526560  - to read our review about which cart we liked the best and find a link to where you can buy it.  

Use the side handles to secure the bags and D-rings for bungee cords to stabilize the load.

Stack the GC Deep Space and Game Canopy on a standard wheeled cart to help you get to those game nights easier.  

Use the side handle to store the wheeled cart when not in use.

Shown here is the Rainfly for the Game Canopy.  We are in the process of finishing the prototype for the GC Deep Space.  Both accessories will be available through the pledge manager after the campaign ends.

Our Game Canopy Rainfly makes traveling in all kinds of weather a cinch!  It's water repellent fabric wicks water off the bag and keeps all your treasured games dry. 

Pictured here is our Saddlebag. A great addition to your Game Canopy to store games, snacks, pens and score sheets! 

 The Saddlebag will be available in the pledge manager after the campaign ends.



All the bags in the Game Canopy System are at a discounted rate from retail, so pledge now and save!

We’re thrilled to be working with Quartermaster Logistics for the fulfillment of this Kickstarter!

Also, for the first time since our last Kickstarter, international pledgers will be able to receive bags from the Game Canopy System! If you’re in the US, or are internationally located, if you’ve been waiting to get a Game Canopy, a Vanguard, a Deep Space, or are looking to pick up all three, then here’s your chance!

We’re subsidizing shipping for our US backers, so you’ll be saving on shipping as well! We’re thrilled to be offering EU, and Canada Friendly shipping, so the savings keep coming your way!

Your shipping will be charged when you complete your survey, in Backerkit, once the Kickstarter ends.

Below is a table of estimated shipping rates. These are subject to change, but we’ve tried to keep things as locked in as possible. Additional shipping will be added for each additional accessory/bag that is added in BackerKit. If your country has additional fees and/or taxes associated with shipping your rewards, please be aware that you will be responsible for paying these if your country is not in our included “shipping friendly” countries.


We have been perfecting the Game Canopy System for three years. In this Kickstarter we are introducing the next member of the system, giving you three fantastic options for making those Game Nights come to life! We have successfully launched and fulfilled a Kickstarter for the previous bags in the system and we are ready to leverage that knowledge to deliver another experience for our backers! Join us as we continue our journey as the industry’s premier Gamer’s transportation solution. 

We are dedicated to the creation of story and experience driven content, whether it be through illustrated literature, thematic board games, or digital interactive and video content. We believe that the story arc is what drives our innovative designs and fosters the projects we pursue. Creating stories is a rewarding and messy process that we’re not afraid to venture into. From conception to completion, we have no problem getting our hands dirty to produce the ideas we envision.

The team here at Level 3B has a wide and diverse set of skills ranging from design, color theory, motion graphics, video editing, and sculpting. We also have several years experience operating, fixing, and modifying a range of 3D printers and other fabrication equipment. In addition to the primary team of co-founders, Level 3B is assisted, behind the scenes, by a large group of family, friends, and supporters like you.

Risks and challenges

While we have complete confidence in Fieldtex to deliver a great product in a timely fashion, there are always small chances that there can be a delay somewhere in fulfillment. Should this unlikely event occur, we will keep you updated as to all changes in schedule or the final product design.

The main risks for this project involve slight variations to the final color or hardware of the products, as we continue to find the most pleasing color combinations. We’re working hard to keep prices for shipping locked in to what we have displayed on this Kickstarter page, but there is a possibility, as prices fluctuate for shipping, that we may have to slightly increase prices in BackerKit.
