About

A Bird's Eye View: An Overview of the Box, the kickstarter, and Wooded Meadows.

Wooded Meadows is a socially and environmentally conscious gaming company that makes quality handcrafted gaming supplies. On this Kickstarter we are launching our Dagger and Two Weapon Fighting dice boxes with our standard options or, for those who want personality, a variety of upgradeable addons. And for those who want more (and let’s face it, who doesn’t want more gaming gear) we are offering 2 of our shirt designs and 2 campaign adventure journals as optional addons.

What's in the box?:

At approx 2 5/8" x 1 5/8" x 3/4" the Wooded Meadows Dagger dice box is an extremely portable dice box designed to store and protect a set of 7 mini gaming dice.

But for those who are always looking for the advantage, our Two Weapon Fighting box is perfect. With about an inch more length (4" x 1 5/8" x 3/4") it holds 2 sets of mini dice. It’s amazing what you can do with another inch! 

 The standard boxes come in 12 wood options:

Uncommon Tier: Standard Dagger $30, Standard Two Weapon Fighting $45

Aspen, Quarter Sawn White Oak, Walnut, and Cherry.

 Rare Tier: Standard Dagger $35, Standard Two weapon Fighting $50

Bubinga, Lacewood, Zebrawood, and Canarywood.

 Epic Tier: Standard Dagger $40, Standard Two Weapon Fighting $55

Yellowheart, Bloodwood, Wenge, Purpleheart.

The standard box also has a base lined with black felt, comes with complementary mini gaming dice*, has the Wooded Meadows logo laser burned on the lid, 

and plants a tree to help with reforestation efforts around the globe. 

 We, however, were not satisfied with offering our supporters just the standard option. So, we have included many additional options for you to make your box truly unique. 

 Our Stretch Goals: 

For this Kickstarter we built our stretch goals with two beliefs in mind: (1) that we are to be good stewards of the things entrusted to us and (2) that as part of the gaming community we should foster it and help it grow. So, we will be donating our boxes, shirts, and adventure journals to after school clubs as more and more trees are planted. Each unlocked stretch goal gets added to all previously unlocked goals. 

Each unlocked stretch goal gets added to all previously unlocked goals.

Thinking Inside the Box: Designing the box.

Function: Everything's form should follow its function and these handcrafted boxes are no different. We wanted to design a box that is not only beautiful, but incredibly portable. Being relatively the same size as a key fob, these boxes fit comfortably in your pocket and can be easily stored in your purse, bookbag, or glove box, patiently waiting for the next game. With your Wooded Meadows box close by, never again will you be the one at the table without your dice, embarrassed and having to borrow your neighbor's dice for those all too critical rolls.

Ready to game at a moment's notice

 Comfort: If you're not comfortable with a product, you won't use it. It is as simple as that. So, with your comfort in mind, we designed our mini dice box with a five-fold comfort: a comfort of the hand, the pocket, the mind, the wallet, and the eye. 

  • The first comfort comes when you hold this box in your hand. It feels good there. You can hold it, spin it, roll it, shake it, open and close the lid. You may even be surprised when you don't want to put it down. But don't be. We designed it that way. 
  • The second comfort comes when you finally take it from your palm and slide it into your pocket. It fits snug. It doesn't create a large bulge or hinder your movement. It fits, in a word, comfortably. 
  • The third comfort comes when you put your dice back in the box and close the lid. There it is, that satisfying snap. Eight rare earth magnets hold the box closed so that you can rest assured that your dice are secure and protected inside. 
  • The fourth comfort comes when you look at the pledge tiers. For a pledge as low as $30 (with no shipping fee!) you can get one of these quality boxes shipped directly to you as a "thank you" from us at Wooded Meadows Gaming. 
  • The fifth comfort will come when you look at your box. It looks fantastic. Here at Wooded Meadows we don't use dies or stains on our wood products. Instead, we have chosen a selection of domestic and exotic hardwoods whose intrinsic beauty is shown through their unique grain patterns and exquisite natural coloring. These are brought out and protected in our 12 step finishing process to ensure they remain beautiful and pleasing to look at for years to come.
  • A sixth (bonus) comfort comes when you breathe. That oxygen there, you helped create more of it by planting more trees when you pledged anything on this Kickstarter.

 Personality: We didn’t want to just build plain boxes, we wanted to build boxes with personality. So not only do we have 12 different woods with unique grain patterns and exquisite natural colorings, but we are also asking for your input. Choose our standard option or, by selecting from our 10 linings, 2 available sizes, 22 images, 10 inlay materials (or laser burned), and 12 dice sets, give your dice box your own, your PC’s, or your friend’s personality.



*The Dagger dice box comes with one set of complementary plastic dice while the Two Weapon Fighting dice box comes with 2 sets of complementary plastic dice.

Risks and challenges

- As you can see in the pictures, we have already moved past the prototype stage, have made several boxes, and can make more with our current setup.
- We have gone over the funding needed to streamline the process, pay vendors for materials, pay taxes, and cover Kickstarter's fees and believe the funding asked for will be enough to cover the costs.
-One risk or challenge we see is if the project explodes beyond anything we could have dreamed of. However, with this in mind we have decided to set up the pledges in production runs. When a production run is filled we will put up another pledge option with a new estimated completion date.
-Another challenge we see is the first production run. With the Kickstarter ending in the beginning of Dec and the Eta being by the end of Dec, those in this run will have to get their surveys completed in a timely manner. If this doesn't happen we may not be able to get them their boxes by the end of the month.
