Modular Gaming Table for a limited time

Modular Gaming Table for a limited time

Postby white knight » 02 May 2013

Found these on another forum and I think they have great potential. The tables are custom built and don't include the boards (you can make those to tailor your needs). It can be set up in different configurations, including a two-level setup for a combined surface and dungeon game and a storage mode.

The table with and without boards:

I would like to announce my kickstarter compaign on the Indiegogo crowdfunding platform. This campaign is a one time oppertunity for you to own a Modular Gaming Table.

The campaign will run for 45 days. The goal is to raise enough money to order at least 10 or more tables. All contributions are refunded if I fail to meet this goal. Production starts when the campaign ends and the goal is reached.

Now without further ado, I present you the "Modular Gaming Table" campaign.

To be successful this campaign need to be relayed in many places. For this to happen I'm counting on you to help spread the word around you.

Even if you don't have any direct interest in a MGT, or if you cannot afford to support the effort financially, It will be greatly appreciated that you spread the word around (on your blogs, on forums, everywhere you may see fit, but please no spam!)

Better shipping for USA now:
We’re going International. I’ve added a new perk for shipment to the USA. A single MGT set can be delivered to your doorstep for 375,- euro.

He's just added 3 videos of the table setup: One showing the construction of a 2x3 setup, one showing the deconstruction and another one showing the construction of the storage setup.

Another Update:


Update 6 - Stretch Goal?

10 days left to go and 42% of the campaign goal covered. If you're out there, NOW is the time to contribute!

Image

According to the poll, about 60 people said they wanted a Modular Gaming Table if the price was right. 3 of them bought a table. This leaves us with 57 prospects. Obviously, for them the price is not right.

I did my best to lower the price as much a possible. I'm in the position to buy the materials at a discount, I got access to the machinery and know-how to work with the materials. Believe me, the current price is at its minimum. To give you an idea, making a table like this at a local welder will cost you about 800 - 900 euros.

However, there's another way to lower the price, but this requires an investment of about 3000,- euros. The investment involves the development of a plastic connection bar. Something similiar to the one below. The new connection bar not only reduces material and labor costs, but also improves overall stability and weight capacity considerably.

Image

Image

Early adopters of a MGT set buy a table, but more importantly they contribute to the further development of the table. Furthermore, early adopters will receive future upgrades like the new connection bar above for free.

I'm willing to invest if the campaign succeeds, but are you willing to contribute?

Last hours on this and not quite funded. If you were sitting on the fence, now's the time to act!

I just came across a design from the 1700s in the book "Illustrated Cabinetmaking" by Bill Hylton:

It's not quite the same thing, but would look a lot nicer when not in use.

A nice idea but i think its the wrong time for most of us.... right now if i had £300 spare i'd be thinking about redecorating my bathroom and buying a new hoover... not a gaming table. :doh:

For me its just as easy buying Saw donkeys of the type that fold up if your boards are thick enough . Another way is to buy paste tables from the local DIY store and alligne them up together into various configurations .
