Thinker Tinker Maker (TTM), an Oregon based duo that creates custom game components, is now planning on starting up a company to sell laser-cut board game inserts, accessories, and components. For their first project, they’re creating a Kickstarter for board game inserts. According to TTM, their inserts will accomplish the following:
- Consolidate shelf space to make room for more games
- Decrease setup and pack up time
- Enhance presence, interaction, and organization of components
- Draw envious eyes of other gamers
From the gallery of their current inserts, I’ll definitely agree with point 4, since the inserts are filled with nice thematic laser-cut designs.
Currently, you can get inserts from the following games on the Kickstarter:
- Sheriff of Nottingham
- Elder Sign
- Imperial Settlers
- Dominant Species
- Mice & Mystics
- Terra Mystica
- Star Wars: Imperial Assault
- Cthulhu Wars
TTM plans to use the Kickstarter funds to get its own laser cutter for future inserts. After the Kickstarter, TTM will launch an online store with the items at standard prices (the Kickstarter has discounted prices based on bulk). If you want to get an insert for one of your games (or just want to see some neat inserts), check out the Kickstarter here!
