About this project

TROVE is a not-for-profit quarterly tabletop subscription box featuring indie and niche games, models, tools and accessories from some of the best publishers and manufacturers across the world with built in pre-release games which OnlyTableTop is Packed with content, all compiled to a quarterly theme.

Each box will be customised for your specific requirements and preferences. Firstly, you can choose from the three box sizes, then set your preferences say war games over puzzle games, etc. and finally specify any particular requirements you may have, such as “family friendly” or “compatible with 1:3000 scale”. Then leave it to us to build a box around your specific needs and send it directly to your door.

  • Custom built boxes to match your interests.
  • Support independent and small businesses around the world.
  • Access to pre-release games built into the box itself.
  • Packed with content giving you three months of gaming.
  • Discover new talent and play original games.

By helping us in our Kickstarter campaign you will receive access to in development games and a box built to your needs. Please remember that the design of the box and the elements inside will change and develop. This Kickstarter includes free domestic postage in the UK and global postage at a set rate. Where we establish local manufacture and logistics you will be refunded the differences.

Our two main content partners  are the fantastic Yeoman Models and BSD Hobbies who both hail from South Wales and work furiously to create fantastic additions to warchests across the country.

We will feature bespoke selections from both so please check out their extremely varied libraries!

 

 

The CD will feature the sublime sounds of Synchronomous amongst others (tba). Please show some love and check out his fantastic music which will be available in all three box options.

 
Thank you so much for your time and consideration, we hope you are as excited about TROVE arriving at your door as we are, please ask any questions you may have, we'd be delighted to reply to them all.

Oh and join us on the face book.

Happy Gaming!

 

Risks and challenges

We have three major issues that we face. Volume, Logistics and Quality Control.

- Volume is the first hurdle. We have an established operation selling board games which has prepared us well, still, we are on new ground here. TROVE involves outside manufacture. This is why we have set our Kickstarter to a low level, allowing us to illustrate TROVE as a viable project ahead of the main run in Jan 2017. As the number of backers scales up we will bring into plans to develop workshop space and a larger team.

- Logistics, with all such things, it's about actually bringing it home. This is why we have elected to keep things simple and stick with the experts. The companies we work with have proven capacity to match orders and deliver on time, though I'm sure a couple may wish to expand their own manufacturing process given larger orders. Shipping is being answered by the local state postal system, for most of the world this will be Royal mail and Parcel force, The Australia and the USA will hopefully see local shipping.

We will be turning to logistics professional to hone out the rough edges as we would like to make delivery very smooth and timely.

- Quality Control is vital. With that in mind will be constantly reviewing the quality of the pieces and materials we produce. Volume might change the consistent quality of work that comes from small companies and we will hopefully help them develop their process to match the demand. This may simply involve developing some packaging solutions or perhaps investing in their operations.
