The Deep Space is the Bag of Holding for your board game nights

May 15, 2019 - 6:05am

If you've ever transported your Gloomhaven, Mechs vs. Minions, or Imperial Assault (with expansions) games, you know how challenging it can be getting your games from Point A to Point B without bashing up the boxes, jumbling the components, or throwing your back out from carrying a stack of heavy games. What's that you say ... you haven't even attempted it because it was easier to bring your game group over than take the game to them? Enter ... The Deep Space game bag to save the day! This bag is the latest, and biggest, in The Game Canopy System, a series of board game bags developed by Level 3B.

Level 3B are currently running a Kickstarter project to fund The Deep Space but the campaign also has the smaller bags available, The Vanguard, and the Game Canopy, if you're looking for something smaller or taller. A shoulder strap is included with each water-resistant bag, along with D-rings (to attach keys and luggage tags), side handles, and side pockets (for storing smaller games, tablets, and phones). If you plan to brave a storm to get to game night (as one should ... those dice aren't rolling themselves), then the Rainfly is also available to provide a water repellent, extra layer of protection.

The bags come in several color schemes and trims including a Dice Tower Edition, which has the Dice Tower logo and colors. Alternatively, the Hero Edition is the Kickstarter exclusive color scheme for 2019. The Deep Space Kickstarter project has already hit 8x its funding goal, with over 270 backers, and will end on Tuesday, June 4th, 2019. The estimated delivery date is May of 2020.
