Battle Boards are custom designed boards for RPG gamers. They’ve got a campaign going on now over on Kickstarter.

From the campaign:

If you were to design the perfect gaming table, what features would it have?

Over the years, we’ve spent an embarrassing amount of time daydreaming about what a game surface would have to include in order to enhance our table-top games, rather than just add more prep work and time. Game tables are out there, but are prohibitively expensive, and no one battle mat, tile solution, or white board met our expectations. Finally, and with much deliberation, we realized that in order to obtain the “ultimate” playing surface, we’d have to build it ourselves.

    They need a video, because doing a quick glance at the Kickstarter, all I see are a variety of blank grids, a wall of text, and an intro cost of $45. Right now, there’s nothing engaging enough on the Kickstarter home page to make me care, and $45 seems ridiculous for a blank grid. Do a short video with a prototype, showcasing exactly what it is, and why I should want to pay $45 for your product.

      They have a video up now and it makes a pretty good pitch… I love the earnestly amateur vibe. That’s what Kickstarter should be all about. The product itself, eh, I dunno. I don’t like how busy the boards are (I don’t need coordinate numbers on my squares, frex), but the concept does have merit. I’m a definite maybe on this one.

    I believe there are already two tabletop products marketed under the name BattleBoards. Isn’t that confusing enough without adding a third?
