Our Next Kickstarter Launches in September!
You may be asking “Why?” and “What for?”
Well, we have a design for a very different kind of product. It’s a cabinet specifically designed to hold games. Board games, role playing games, card games—most kinds of table top games.
The upper shelves are sized to hold board game boxes up to 320mm x 240mm (about 12.5″ by 9.5″, the size of Settlers of Catan, Flash Point Fire Rescue, and similar boxes). The glass doors can also show off a collection: painted miniatures, signed cards or games, etc.
Beneath that are three small drawers on either side for smaller games or accessories like dice, pencils, and the like. In between the drawers is an open bookshelf for books up to 11″ tall (like 8.5″ x 11″ roleplaying game manuals).
All of that can be enclosed by the top door (more on that in a second) while underneath are two more larger drawers and a storage space for games packaged in bigger boxes.
Oh yeah, and that top door is false. It folds down to become a small two or three person game table!
Yep, our Game Cabinet is actually a Cabinet Game Table!
Like our other tables, it’s multi-purpose (but unlike them, it won’t have a drop-down play area, just a flat table surface). We think it’s great for games, snacks, crafts—a lot of things! And it can be tucked away when the cabinet is “closed,” making it a great addition to any game room, dining room, or wherever you need a spare table sometimes.
We’re using Kickstarter for this new style because we need to know we will have viable sales for this design before we commit to all the set-up necessary to put it into production in the factory.

This cabinet is very different from our other products, and if we can’t reach a minimum during the Kickstarter time period, it very likely won’t be viable extrapolated to the long term. The last thing we want to do is put time and money into a product that isn’t feasible.
See the Cabinet Game Table at Gen Con! (we hope)
We hope to have a prototype ready in time to bring to GenCon in Indianapolis. It’s a bit touch and go right now, but we believe we’ll have the new piece on display at Gen Con—the same place we debuted our Dining Game Table two years ago.
If you’re at the convention, please stop by. Even if we don’t have the prototype, we’ll have information on it and the Kickstarter.
Find us with Studio 2 Publishing in Space# 2029. We’re the corner booth on the aisle. You can also see our tables at the Mayfair Games and Lone Shark Games booths. Mayfair is running demos on a Kitchen Game Table and Lone Shark as well on the Streamer Game Table. [See the map below for those locations.]
We hope to see many of you there. It looks to be an amazing and exciting 50th Gen Con in 2017.
Thanks for making all this possible!
