About

EVERYTHING YOU WANT FROM A BOARD GAME TABLE, IN ONE PRACTICAL PACKAGE

Introducing Wooded Realms Board Game Tables !

We are dedicated to making a board game table that will replace your current dining room table. You will be able to use our table as your primary dining, working, crafting, and gaming space, without compromising the space in your home or apartment. No dented rails. No gaudy insignia. No visible slots or plugs. 2nd Breakfast looks like a normal table, until you decide it's time to play.

Dimensions

60"x40" full table | 52"x32" playfield
60"x40" full table | 52"x32" playfield
68"x44" full table | 60"x36" playfield
68"x44" full table | 60"x36" playfield

Dimensions

The 2nd Breakfast Standard table will be 60" x 40", with a Playfield space of 52" x 32"

The 2nd Breakfast XL table will be 68"x44", with a playfield space of 60"x36".  Our 3x5 table has arrived early!

Both tables will be approximately 32" in height (we will test for the best height after the design is finalized).  The Frame features a 4" bezel for comfort and to provide additional space to place things.

Materials

100% European Beech Hardwood

The 2nd Breakfast will be made out of a sturdy, hard Beech wood that looks beautiful and is tough enough to handle daily use.  European Beech is a very durable wood, stronger than bamboo, teak, and more.

The Janka hardness rating system is a common method for gauging wood hardness.  You can see that European Beech is a very hard wood, making it ideal for daily use as a kitchen or dining table.

European Beech is a sustainable wood, not listed in CITES Appendices or on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.

2nd Breakfast is 100% European Beech wood. No plywood. No MDF.

Accessory Materials

Most accessories, like the cup holders and dice trays, will also be made out of Beech wood, as they are visible components of your table, and benefit from the hard properties of beech.  The playfield may be may made out of layered bamboo or another material; we will choose the material that works best for the playfield.

 EVERY Table includes the following:

  • 1 2nd Breakfast table
  • 4 dinner height legs
  • 1 set of 4 leaves to cover the playfield and convert 2nd Breakfast into a kitchen or dining table
  • 1 reversible playfield with cloth and smooth sides
  • 1 fitted clear acrylic sheet
  • Recessed Bluetooth RGB+W LED strip
  • 4 dice tray accessories
  • 2 double cup holder accessories (for the long sides)
  • 2 single cup holder accessories (for the short sides)
  • 2 AC outlets for plugging in laptops or other devices
  • 8 2.0 Amp USB ports for charging devices

Yes, all of it!  All for one price!  If you really want to go in on this table, you can, with our premium accessories, which you'll see below!

 Our tables include two primary options (for now...).

Table Stain/Color

Colors not exactly right but you get the idea
Colors not exactly right but you get the idea

Choose from an ashy white color, a light natural stain, a deeper, dark stain, or black.  OR, if you're the DIY type, you can purchase your table completely unstained!

Cloth color

You will have an opportunity to see the final cloth colors and materials before choosing

Beautiful RGB+W LEDs included with EVERY table

Every 2nd Breakfast table includes a premium waterproof LED set that can do a variety of things.  Users connect to the LED strip via a Bluetooth app, and can control the color, brightness, and other factors.  Your table's LEDs can react to sound, music, or provide pre-set scenes.  You can even group multiple tables together to have them sync their colors and behavior!

The Table Leaves and Gutter

Our tables do not use a full-size topper.  When designing, we didn't like the idea of a giant slab of wood that would have to be picked up and placed somewhere out of the way.

In addition, we really like the versatility of leaves.  You can leave one or two leaves on the table to have more room for food, books, minis, whatever, and still have access to the playfield.  Plus the leaves are much easier and lighter to pick up and store!

In order to keep the benefits of leaves while maintaining the safety of the playfield against crumbs and spills, our leaves and table will include a gutter spill redirection system that we'll be demoing soon.

Included Core Shelves and Cup Holders

 All pledge levels for 2nd Breakfast tables will include the following:

  • 4 universal rail accessory shelves with matching cloth
  • 2 double cup holders (for the long sides)
  • 2 single cup holders (for the short sides)

All shelves and cup holders can be moved around to many multiple positions on the table with ease.

All accessories slide under the table, and a movable skirt drops down to hide them from view when not in use.

The Playfield & Clear Acrylic Sheet

The 2nd Breakfast table will include a reversible cloth playfield.  One side will be a cloth material (we are still testing out different materials to find the best one), the other will be smooth wood (painted, or not?  We're still not sure...).

Also included with every table will be a 1/8" sheet of clear acrylic that can be drawn on with dry erase markers, or used to hold maps or puzzles.

Now You're Playing With Power... AC & USB Power!

The 2nd Breakfast table will include 2 full size AC outlets at opposing sides of the table, as well as 2 USB A ports on each side of the table, for a total of 8 USB ports.  Both the USB and AC outlets will be discreetly placed.  The table itself will be plugged in with a C13 plug (the same plugs you use on desktop computers and some televisions or video game consoles), so you can unplug and remove the cord if you don't want to have your table plugged in.

Premium accessories, designed to supercharge your game by bringing unnecessarily awesome products to your table.  Designed to work with Wooded Realms tables, but universal for everyone.

These accessories are not part of the Standard and XL Table configurations.  They can be purchased separately or as a bundle.  All premium accessories will ship as they are completed; Most are being manufactured in the US by C4 labs.

We are working with established freight and local business partners to bring our tables to your home quickly and safely.  A large part of the learning process for us as a new business is finding the best way to handle fulfillment, and thankfully we have some excellent relationships with companies that know how to handle delivery!

Packaging

Our partners in Datong have years of experience designing and producing packaging for furniture and other large packages.  We are involved with every step of the package creation and actual packaging of your table to ensure that you receive your table in excellent shape.

Local Pickup

Many of you have asked if you can save on shipping and just pick up your table here in Seattle.  The answer is YES!  You can totally do that!  If you order your 2nd Breakfast table and opt for the local pickup option, we will refund most of your shipping cost (we may keep a small percentage to cover warehousing and other incidentals related to managing and meeting customers with tables).

If you aren't within driving distance of the Puget Sound, we are looking at ways to offer local pickup in other states!  Stay tuned, and we'll have info as soon as it is available.

Quality Matters 

We offer durable, quality, real hardwood construction by an experienced team of engineers and furniture designers. 2nd Breakfast is undergoing multiple rounds of revisions as we find top quality materials and solutions for every aspect of our tables 

Fully Featured, One Price 

Other Board Game Table manufacturers charge thousands of dollars just for the table! Often times, you have to pay extra for the topper just to convert your board game table into a dining table. Our table includes features other manufacturers charge hundreds to include. And our tables have one. fixed. price. 

Keep It Secret, Keep It Safe

Most people don't have space for a dedicated game room, much less a dedicated board game table. And many tables include gaudy logos, metal railing, slots, and other eyesores. 2nd Breakfast is a classic dining table design. Our tables use a unique, discreet design that keeps games safe and is nearly invisible when you just want a dining table. 

Designed in Collaboration with Warmwood, LLC 2nd Breakfast is the first affordable, fully featured board game table. Our tables use hard wood and are optimized for all types of gaming and play. We are dedicated to making a board game table that will replace your current dining room table. 

You will be able to use our table as your primary dining, working, crafting, and gaming space, without compromising the space in your home or apartment. 

No dented rails. No gaudy insignia. No visible slots or plugs. 2nd Breakfast looks like a normal table, until you decide it's time to play.

Nathan is a long time gamer and member of the video game community in Seattle, Washington.  Nathan has been part of the video game and tech industries for almost 20 years, having worked for Nintendo, Amazon, and Microsoft as well as several start-ups and non-profit organizations.  As a project manager, Nathan has years of experience managing complex projects and timelines.  Despite these experiences, managing the production of a piece of furniture is a new adventure for Nathan, which is where Michael comes in.

Michael Yang

Michael is a skilled, experienced producer of quality furniture.  Based in Beijing, China, Michael's company has produced office and home furniture for dozens of projects, from small buildings to entire factories.  His design team have utilized their expertise to arrive at the current iteration of the 2nd Breakfast table, which is currently sitting at around the 5th version.

Dustin, Rachel, & Scott @ C4 Labs

Nathan met Rachel at a comic-con, where Rachel was staffing the booth for her company, C4 labs.  After meeting with Dustin and Scott, It was clear that their expertise in designing gaming accessories would be a huge boon to the Wooded Realms' lineup.  Dustin, Scott, and Rachel have all contributed in several ways, from providing input into the universal rail accessory system, to making the most out of our shelves.  They will continue to act as consultants for the Wooded Realms premium accessories that will be showcased exclusively on this Kickstarter!

Coming Soon!

We love hearing your questions, so if there's anything you'd like to know more about, please let us know in the comments!  We have plenty more content and details to share, so please stay tuned!

Our current update schedule will include:

  • A Timeline for the Project
  • Interviews with some of the many folks who have helped make our Kickstarter possible
  • And more!

Risks and challenges

We are working in partnership with experienced furniture makers and designers who have built custom pieces of furniture for home and office spaces in China. Our biggest risk right now is the potential tariffs and other import duties. We are fully investigating these possible changes, and are accounting for these costs in the price of the table.

Our Kickstarter goal is based on the minimum amount of tables needed to keep the benefit of scale. We would not lower the goal and hope for the best. We have planned our purchases very carefully to ensure that we can commit to our community to deliver our products on time and in budget!
