I’m Michael Kane, a gamer from Austin, Texas, and the founder of Geek Tank Games. In early 2018, I launched a Kickstarter campaign for premium plastic tokens for tabletop RPGs, featuring a Camping Set, a Castle Furnishings Set and a Castle Siege Set (available at geektankgames.com), and the initial goal was reached in just five days - over 300% funded, when when all was said and done!
I appreciate all the interest and support, and now, it’s time to release some new products! At Geek Tank Games, ideas get put into practice, so keep reading to learn about this new Kickstarter campaign.
After a successful first run, we are now offering a Town Market Set, a Graveyard Set, and a Dungeon Set. The Rooftops Set will also become available after we hit our first stretch goal of $30K. With these products, gamers can open up all new levels of immersion.
Also, by popular demand, we are going to offer our first run of tokens as options for all backers! In addition to the current sets mentioned above, you will also have the option to choose from the Camping Set, Castle Furnishings Set and Castle Siege Set as both rewards and add-ons!
With our premium plastic tokens for tabletop RPGs, you can simply toss them onto your battlemap while setting up for gaming sessions, and *BAM* - You’re done. Each token is hand-drawn and scaled to a 1” x 1” battlemap. Plus, not only are these tokens durable, spill-proof and wet-erase ready, but they are also super low-profile and come with resealable packaging to keep your tokens organized between sessions. The art is amazing, and, of course, the material will be top-notch.
Just like our last project, we are about 90% done with the planning and development process, and our goal will be to have the tokens in backer hands by early spring.
These tokens are perfect for those who are enthusiastic about board games, card games, and role-playing games. I, personally, was tired of stopping mid-game to draw a new room, so I wanted to create something that was cool, that was unique and that I could use myself.
Each of our pledge levels are quantity-based, so you can choose the amount of token sets that you want now, and then select your specific sets after the campaign. This way, you will also have the option to choose a stretch goal set, during the survey process.
Just as before, we will make all sets available as add-ons in the Backerkit system. To add an item, simply update your pledge in multiples of $15, as each add-on item will be $15. Then, after the campaign has concluded, you will receive a link to our Backerkit page, where your over-pledge will be converted into “credit” that can be used to select any available add-ons. Everyone will be able to choose additional items for their order, without paying additional shipping (unless applicable) at that time.
With your help, we can make this fantasy a reality, and we are offering some cool incentives to bump the goal to new heights! The first stretch goal, of $30K, will make the Rooftops Set available for purchase as part of any backer level. Each of the following FREE gifts will also be released as we hit our stretch goals!
This time around, shipping will be determined based on the actual product weights and USPS shipping method of your choice, in Backerkit. Once you’ve completed your surveys, chosen your add-ons and finalized your order, you can choose the shipping method that works best for you, with no additional charges from us.

Risks and challenges
Design, testing, and product development are all finished for this project. Everything is in place and the science is done - Geek Tank Games just needs help funding the initial order. Once funded, we can have products into backers’ hands early spring and products up for sale on the website in the same amount of time (though backers will be taken care of first). Our goal is to deliver products to you in early Spring of 2019, but certainly sooner if possible.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
