Say goodbye to flimsy department store bags and repurposed drum cases—a new board game bag on Kickstarter is here to upgrade the way you carry your favorite games. The Board Game Garage is stylish and versatile, with the ability to carry everything from the smallest accessories to oversized favorites like Gloomhaven, Scythe, and Conan. The main compartment can fit up to six standard-sized square games!
The bag is padded and comes with side handles and an adjustable shoulder strap for easy carrying. It also folds flat when not in use. The project funded quickly and stretch goals include a waterproof rain cover and alternative colors. Head over to Kickstarter and check it out!
It’s that time of week again, time to see what projects out there are worth some of your attention.
To start out this week we have some ‘Kickstarter Gold’, a web-comic turned RPG set in Table Titans: Fallen Veil Adventure Set. Table Titans is a weekly webcomic series that focuses on a group of people as they play through various Dungeons and Dragons scenarios that they created. In their first Kickstarter campaign they launched they aimed to print a comic book, and also released some digital copies of the adventures featured in the comic. Now they want to take that a step further, and so in this campaign they are raising funds to get the adventure printed, along with maps, a DM screen, and tons of tokens to use in the adventure. This will all come in one box and will serve as a great starting point for new characters to get them up to level 5. So if you are looking for something new for your DnD group, give this Kickstarter a look.
Next is another in the growing line of board game bags that you can purchase, simply called the Board Game Garage. This bag features everything you could want in a bag to transport your games in: padded insides, extra storage on the top and sides, side zipper for easy access, comfort grip handle, and optional shoulder strap. Of course the big question is, how many games can it carry? For regular Ticket to Ride sized boxes, the garage can hold 6 of the boxes snugly, for over sized boxes like Gloomhaven or Star Wars Rebellion, you can fit two or three in there along with smaller games. Overall the bag looks to be solid and also folds up for easy storage, check out the Kickstarter page for more information and to pledge.
Last we have a bit of a game design kit, and that is the Green Box of Games. This is described as the “deck of cards” of board gaming in that it contains a lot of components needed to play most any game including dice, cubes, tiles, and cards. The game comes boxed with rules for 16 different games, each one utilizing different aspects of the tiles and cards included in the box. The game designer also encourages you to make your own games up with the components similar to the White Box that was Kickstarted earlier this year. So if you have the game design itch, this might be the box that scratches it, check out the Kickstarter today.
